The Legend of the Mantamaji

“The 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.

Eric Dean Seaton, director of multiple television hits including “Sonny with a
Chance”, “Austin and Ally” and “Undateable,” grew up wanting to become a director yet never forgot the days he spent devouring comic books in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. The “Haunted Hathaways” and two-time NAACP Image Award-nominated director spent six years working on the graphic novel series, often wrapping up on the set of a hit show and later burning the midnight oil at home for his other passion — writing his first set ofgraphic novels.

“My love for comic books started as a kid. My dad actually worked out of
town and would come home on the weekends and take me around with him on
Saturday. We’d always stop at a coffee shop where they would have comic
books. I’d get to pick up as many as I wanted and I’d sit in the car the
rest of the day reading the books and having adventures in my head, or the
car if I could,” Seaton says.

His work as a director further fueled that fire.

“The Legend of the Mantamaji” is the culmination of all the things I learned
about story telling while working for The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon.
Their characters can be broad and the stories tailored more towards kids,
but the art of telling a story is the same. You have to have heart, it has
to mean something; the main character needs to be flawed and learn a lesson,
and you have to take the audience on an adventure,” Seaton said

.

After Book One releases October 8th, Book Two and Three are scheduled for
December 10, 2014 and February 11, 2015, respectively.
