Last Thursday, Vertigo released the cover art for a new graphic novel due out early next year.  The project, called A.D.D., was described by DC Comics‘ own Pamela Mullin as such:

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.



It will be written by Douglas Rushkoff, who previously worked with Vertigo on a series called Testament, so readers should be prepared to expect an intricate story line, rife with social consciousness and an emphasis on none-too-subtle thematic plot points.  He will be collaborating with Goran Sudzuka and Jose Marzan, Jr.,who will be taking care of A.D.D.‘s artwork and cover.

A.D.D. is scheduled for release in January of 2012.
