July 29, 2014
From producer Reggie Hudlin to actors Tyrese Gibson and Erika Alexander, there have been a number of African American executives and actors who have entered the world of comics. Whether or not, they have received success or exposure is another story, but the effort to do something like this is rewarding to them and hopefully to those who supported their project. Now we can add television director Eric Dean Seaton to the list.
As an episodic director, Eric Dean Seaton has helmed over 32 different shows, 165 television episodes, 18 music videos, two pilots for Nickelodeon, “Bad Fairy,” and “Sketch,” as well as two pilots for Disney XD, “Mighty Med,” which was picked up for a second season and “Kickin’ It,” which just completed its four-season run.
Seaton recently attended the 2014 San Diego Comic Con to promote his first graphic novel series, “Legend of the Mantamaji”.
“Legend of the Mantamaji” is a three-book series that follows the story of Elijah Alexander, a brash assistant district attorney who suddenly discovers he is the last of an ancient race of warriors sworn to protect humans. Fast-paced, heart-stopping action combines with a layered, thoughtful story full of hair-raising plot twists as Elijah struggles with the truth of who he is and what he means to the world.
Book one is set for release on October 8th, with release dates for book two and three scheduled for December 10, 2014 and February 11, 2015, respectively.
The novels are also available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
