A bit late posting about Stephen R. Bissette‘s latest book, but here it is:

Teen Angels & New Mutants front coverTEEN ANGELS & NEW MUTANTS: Rick Veitch’s Brat Pack® and the Art,Karma, and Commerce of Killing Sidekicks

Writer/artist Rick Veitch‘s career bridges the underground comix of the 1970s, mainstream DC and Vertigo Comics, and the self-publishing revolution of the 1980s and 1990s. In that extraordinary body of work, Brat Pack® remains a landmark, and Teen Angels & New Mutants is the first book-length, in-depth study of a creator and graphic novel worthy of the autopsy. En route, Teen Angels offers a crash-course on teen pop culture and superhero sidekick history, fresh analysis of Dr. Fredric Wertham‘s seminal books, ponders real-world “new mutants” like Michael Jackson, The Olsen Twins, and Justin Bieber, and charts the 1980s comicbook explosion and 1990s implosion–and more.

Check out Stephen Bissette’s Teen Angels page full of excerpts, info, backstory, reviews, and of course links to purchase (e.g. from the publisher).
