This book is the first of its kind: an expansive overview of every aspect of the creation of a graphic novel (in this case, Rick Veitch's seminal BRAT PACK, 1990-1991), including its pop cultural roots, context, and wake; the personal and professional life of its creator, Rick Veitch; the behind-the-scenes creative and business decisions that culminated in the publication of the completed serialized original (which ended differently than the current graphic novel edition), its revision, and its lifespan as a creative work. An extensive appendix provides a concise assessment of the differences between the original serialized BRAT PACK and the revised graphic novel edition. TEEN ANGELS & NEW MUTANTS also covers the entire superhero sidekick and teen superhero genre, including post-BRAT PACK titles like THE BOYS, KICK-ASS, etc., which owe a vast debt to Veitch's original series and graphic novel. Profusely illustrated with BRAT PACK art, rare photographs, ad mats and stills (from teen movies relevant to the text), and much more, TEEN ANGELS & NEW MUTANTS sets a new threshold for how graphic novels should, could, and will be assessed, and offers the only extensive biography on Rick Veitch in print.
