Celebrities grown in nutrient vats.
Holographic sex clubs where anything is possible.
A church that worships superheroes.
A military force of carnival clowns and plushie killing machines.
Welcome to The Village -- home to a mad despot known only as The King, the mega-corporation Sell Inc, and the 10,000-channel media conglomerate Network One.
A coup has reduced The Village to rubble. Now, a nameless soldier struggles with his humanity, a priest faces a crisis of faith, a salesman falls in love with a digital mistress, and a post-punk tribe of motorized merchants fights for its very survival.
It’s going to take a while to clean up this mess. Hopefully, someone brought snacks.
