I picked this up specifically because I'm a fan of Rushkoff's other work and was intrigued how it played out in graphic novel form. With a story about the effects of media over-saturation, featuring a batch of professional video game playing teens and a corporation that controls their lives (and possibly something even more sinister), it definitely seemed like something I would love. Sadly it ended up feeling more like an extended prologue rather than a fully realized story. An intriguing enough idea, but ultimately not a groundbreaking work on the subject matter. I hope Rushkoff considers a non-graphic novel version in which he can expand upon the world he's introduced here.

Byron I agree. I didn't like the book as much as you did but I really do think that it needed a longer format to be realized.
