Brandon Novak’s life has been far from normal. At a young age, he rose to fame because of his skateboarding talents and was quickly thrown into the spotlight. He became an MTV celebrity making appearances on Viva La Bam, Bam’s Unholy Union, the Camp Kill Yourself film series, and the legendary Jackass movies. Although he was a TV star, behind the scenes, the professional skateboarder and celebrity was a struggling heroin addict.
Although he was supposed to be living a life of fame and fortune, his addiction caused him a lot of trouble. He was arrested and jailed several dozen times. His addiction spiraled out of control, and he eventually became homeless. Brandon even survived multiple scores of self-induced life-threatening situations, including more than one drug overdose, before getting sober.
A follow up to Brandon Novak’s memoir Dreamseller, the Brandon Novak Chronicles are a collection of the several comedic and tragic tales of his life of fame, addiction, and recovery in graphic novel form.
