In 21 days you will learn that the Mantamaji fought best from the shadows. For it is said that they fought darkness by becoming like water: quiet, unpredictable, slipping in through every crack. The power of water is the power of surprise. Sometimes only that surprise kept the Mantamaji from death.

In 22 days you will learn about women with great mystical powers. The Sancutants fought alongside the Mantamaji and were treated as equals—yes, even in that ancient time. For equality is not a new idea, but rather an old one that has been forgotten, like a beautiful temple buried by mere sand.

In 24 days you will learn of the abominations Sirach created. They appeared as dark horsemen, and each had only one power—but it was a great and terrible power. Power so great that burned up the human soul within, leaving only hunger and darkness behind. Many were the heroes that they killed.

In 26 days you will learn all the evils the Mantamaji had conquered before, they were not prepared for their most deadly adversary. Oh, if the ravens could have warned us of this darkness! Oh, if the sun could have pierced the despair! But humanity suffered, the world groaned, and even the Mantamaji were unsure they could prevail.

When I set out to make Legend of the Mantamaji, I didn’t set out to make a Black book with all Black characters. I wanted to create a really good story with relateable characters that reflected society. Our world is multi-hued and we should celebrate and support that diversity and you see that in the books.
Comic books, graphic novels and superheroes represent wish fulfillment for people of all ages and backgrounds, which is why superhero movies, conventions like Comic-Con and superhero products continue to sell out. We all want to be the hero or the person that makes a difference,” Television director and creator of the Legend of the Mantamaji series, Eric Dean Seaton, said. “Fantasy and fiction is best when it’s based on something people can relate to.
