But the transformation from geek hobby to mainstream popular entertainment has grown steadily over the past decade due to the rise of the comic book superhero genre in movies and television, said Eric Dean Seaton, a television director and author of “Legend of the Mantamaji,” a graphic novel.
“This is stuff we grew up on as kids and secretly liked,” said Seaton, who is an exhibitor. “And now, for adults it’s nostalgia and for kids, superheroes have become their Greek heroes and history stories.”
If you’re in the Anaheim area, stop by the “And…Action!” Entertainment Table (Booth #1801), meet Eric and pick up Legend of the Mantamaji! If you’re not headed to WonderCon, you can still own a signed copy of Legend of the Mantamaji, just order from our website, all books come signed from the author!

This past weekend the Legend of the Mantamaji crew and I made our second stop on the 2015 Book Tour at the Long Beach Comic Expo and had a great time. The crowd was a lot of fun, and eager to learn more about Legend of the Mantamaji which is always a plus.
LBCE was kind enough to highlight me as a special guest and invited me to join a panel on Diversity & Indie Comics with David Walker and Ray-Anthony Height. It was a great opportunity to discuss the state of the industry and what indie creators are doing to advance diversity in comics.
