Welcome to Area Fifty-Something, a secret desert outpost crawling with displaced monsters and aliens. Monsters and aliens have quite a bit in common -- strange appearance, superpowers and senses of humor, to name a few -- but when they are forced to work side by side in a strange land, tempers begin to boil. Watch as they do their best to get along, this Spring on Nick!
