Humanoids Inc.| January 2014

District 14 is a labyrinthine megalopolis where humans, animals, and aliens coexist. A rotting Tower of Babel where anarchy and wealth commingle, where affluence and crime intertwine… It is amidst this vibrant urban landscape that a strange character, an elephant by the name of Michael, disembarks from an immigrant vessel. This mighty pachyderm barely sets his bag down when he is caught in a violent crossfire… Along with Hector, an opinionated journalist beaver, they come to form a unique and powerful duo, reporting for one of the city’s sensationalist newspapers.

Following the critically acclaimed Season 1 comes an equally riveting second season, concluding this first story cycle. Secrets will be revealed, blood will be shed, and new allegiances will be forged as Michael, Hector and the rest of the fantastic cast face both their respective inner demons as well as the corrupt powers that control the District.
