From the publisher:
A unique anthropomorphic mystery with an intricate plot and a fantastic cast of characters.
"District 14 is an intoxicating brew of early twentieth century Americana, a world filled with immigrants, gangsters, and heroes. It's like a dream mash-up of Little Orphan Annie, Dick Tracy, noir and gangster films, as well as 10 cent comic books from the '40s... oh, and toss in Babar the Elephant for good measure..."
-Jeff Smith, creator of BONE and RASL
