Douglas Rushkoff (Testament) returns to Vertigo this January with a new graphic novel called A.D.D. The writer and media theorist is teaming with artists Goran Sudzuka and Jose Marzan, Jr for the story of the Adolescent Demo Division, a group of kids raised to “test media, appear on reality TV and enjoy the fruits of corporate culture.”
Here’s how Vertigo describes the project:
The Adolescent Demo Division (A.D.D.) are the world’s luckiest teen gamers. Raised from birth to test media, appear on reality TV and enjoy the fruits of corporate culture, the squad develop special abilities that make them the envy of the world—and a grave concern to their keepers.
One by one, they “graduate” to new levels that are not what they seem. But their heightened abilities can only take them so far as the ultimate search for their birth families proves to be a most harrowing discovery.
Rushkoff previously teamed with artist Liam Sharpe for the short-lived series Testament at Vertigo, while Sudzuka has worked for the publisher on Outlaw Nation, Y the Last Man, Hellblazer and the recent Strange Adventures anthology. A.D.D. is due in stores in January 2012.
