Skandalon

Skandalon by Julie Maroh
(Arsenal Pulp Press, 2014, 160 pages)

Skandalon is a graphic novel by Julie Maroh, the author of Blue is the Warmest Color, which was made into a film in 2013. Skandalon is the story of an arrogant rock star and the cost of fame. His downward spiral includes a fistfight with his manager, the rape of a young fan, and intravenous drug use. There is no redemption in the end. This is a quick read with interesting art if the topic interests you, but I would spend my time reading something more uplifting.
