Support the ACLU!

Wednesday, February 1, 2017


At HUMANOIDS we want to support ACLU by giving 100% of the profits from the following four books during the month of February.

So if you want to take a stand against ignorance, show your support for ACLU by Buying A Book!  It's that simple!  The titles are:

A genre-bending work of political science fiction, where the rulers of the future are haunted by the ghosts of the past… Written and illustrated in stunning color by Ukrainian green-card lottery winning creator Igor Baranko.

The travel diary of French two brothers in a land at war. Based on the siblings' real life experiences in war-torn Lebanon.

A unique and addictive anthropomorphic mystery with an intricate plot and an immigrant hero, rendered in stark black-and-white. Winner of best series at the Angoulême International Comics Festival in 2012.

According to Tobe Hooper "It's disgusting, fun and politically right on target!" A book full of alt-right nuts and rednecks who are way more dangerous that the peaceful living-impaired (just don't call them zombies!).
