After weathering tough times, it seems all is well for artist Tate and her boyfriend Hexe, prince of the Kymera (magic-wielding humanoids) of Golgotham--New York's strangest neighborhood. But looks are deceiving; a wave of race hatred is surging in the streets...and threatens to wash away Tate and Hexe altogether.

From official release/information:

Product Description:

Located on Manhattan's Lower East Side, Golgotham has been the city's supernatural ghetto for centuries. Populated by countless creatures from myth and legend, the neighborhood's most prominent citizens are the Kymera, a race of witches who maintain an uneasy truce with New York City's humans...

Tate Eresby has accepted the unusual sights and sounds of Golgotham and made it her home. Unfortunately, a magazine has alerted trendsetting hipsters to its existence and they've descended upon the community-along with an anti-Kymera faction known as The Sons of Adam. The sudden influx of tourists escalates racial tensions to a boiling point when two Kymerans are murdered and rioting fills the streets.
