Legend of the Mantamaji is a three-book graphic novel series whose sweeping tale of magic and mystery, heroes and villains, has a fresh look, a modern setting—and an ancient beat. “

The series focuses on a rising Assistant District Attorney Elijah Alexander who discovers that he’s the last of a race of mystical knights called the Mantamji, mystical knights who were former protectors of mankind. When an ancient evil returns, Elijah must leave his former life behind and become a magical warrior in order to protect earth. The comic also features a multicultural cast and African-American male and female leads.

Seaton, has directed hit shows such as NBC’s ‘Undateable’ and the Disney Channel’s ‘Austin & Ally’.  In regard to the series, Seaton says

I always knew I wanted to create a comic book with a big back story and I wanted to create a superhero that looked like me.People of color have been an afterthought in superhero and sci-fi/fantasy stories. I also knew I wanted to develop a story with strong female leads as well, there are no damsels in distress in this series. Legend of the Mantamaji is really at its heart a great, fun story that has been very well received and I look forward to that carrying over into Book Two.”
