"...A sense of space and life rarely seen in books about mutants." - Entertainment Weekly "The comics industry could use a lot more bold experiments like Demo." - ComicBookGalaxy.com "I recommend Demo to anybody who's looking for a realistic take on kids who have powers. Moreover, I recommend it even more strongly to anybody who's looking for a collection of multi-lavered, character driven stories." - IGN.Com"
In a world where you have to find your own identity and make your own way, surely super-powers would help you stand out from the crowd? But would you really want that?In this collection of twelve stand-alone stories, various people, from students to soldiers, runaways to blue-collar workers, come to terms with their new abilities and ask themselves hard questions: if you never missed with a gun, would you want to use your power to shoot people? If you were super-strong, would your colleagues on the building site appreciate your help or use you to slack off?Acclaimed writer Brian Wood ("DMZ", "Channel Zero") and artist Becky Cloonan ("East Coast Rising") bring a unique alternative sensibility to superheroics! This title is intended for adults only!
