This episode it was my distinct pleasure to talk with Eric Seaton, creator of the graphic novel series Legend of the Mantamaji (and award winnig television director, but he's not one to brag so I will do it for him)
Notes on Eric and Legends of the Mantamaji:
Television director Eric Dean Seaton’s first graphic novel series is a tale exploding with brilliant art, action-packed adventure, true-to-life characters, and a smart and twisting plotline.
Published by “And… Action!” Entertainment, Legend of the Mantamaji tells the story of Elijah Alexander, a rising Assistant District Attorney in New York who learns he is the last of a race of mystical knights called the Mantamaji, who once protected mankind. When an ancient evil is resurrected, Elijah has to learn to turn his back on everything he’s worked for, accept his birthright, and learn how to use his magical warrior abilities to defeat the greatest threat the Mantamaji ever faced—without being distracted by his grief, his anger, and one terrible betrayal.
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.
Eric Dean Seaton has directed a plethora of television episodes, music videos, and sitcom pilots since his debut directing Disney Channel’s top-rated sitcom, “That’s So Raven” in 2004, but he’s dreamt of being a comic book creator since his childhood in Cleveland, Ohio. Eric, his wife, son and daughter live in California.
