Description

The Adolescent Demo Division 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 leads to an inconceivably harrowing discovery. 
Written by Douglas Rushkoff, world-renowned media theorist, Frontline TV correspondent and author (Ecstasy Club, Media Virus and Program or Be Programmed, TESTAMENT), with full color art by Goran Sudzuka and Jose Marzan Jr. (Y: THE LAST MAN).

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 30, 2012 – This heavy-handed fable presents the tale of a group of teens raised from birth in a life of privilege, carefully mentored to be the virtual reality superstars of tomorrow. This facade is soon ripped away; cosseted Lionel, beta male to the dominant star, Karl, begins to suspect Karl’s looming “level up” is nothing of the sort. When his suspicions are confirmed in the most terrible way possible, Karl and the rest of the ADD will be faced with a decision; settle for the pleasing lie their masters have crafted for them or risk all with open rebellion. Although nothing in this story is novel, the basic idea presents a lot of grist for media theorist Rushkoff (Program or Be Programmed). Sadly, the result is an adventure in which all developments are telegraphed well in advance, a morality tale whose moral is undermined by the strident and shrill tone the authors have chosen. Sudzuka’s art is clean and appealing, but struggles to cram a lot of dialogue into the action.
