The Hunt is On with The Seekers of the Aweto Debuting this March

Cartoonist Nie Jun’s stunning graphic novel debut, My Beijing: Four Stories of Everyday Wonder, captivated and charmed critics and readers alike with its depiction of life in a small neighborhood in Beijing. The book was nominated for an Eisner Award, selected as an Batchelder Honor Book, and received a glowing write up in the New York Times Book Review. This spring, Nie Jun will release his eagerly anticipated follow up: an ambitious, four-volume graphic novel series titled Seekers of Aweto, which takes readers on a poetic adventure across medieval China. The debut title, “The Hunt is On“, will be published by Graphic Universe, an imprint of Lerner Publishing Group, on March 2, 2021 in bookstores and in comic shops on March 3rd.

In “The Hunt is On”, Xinyue, his brother Qiliu, and their mother are seekers, hunting aweto―a rare, plantlike treasure. A single aweto has the power to cure the ill. Its rarest form may even grant eternal life. To seize their bounty, the seekers must rob the massive, majestic earth deities from which aweto sprout—sometimes leaving a trail of chaos behind them.

One day, after an outing on the legendary Silk Road, Xinyue discovers the offspring of a deity that creates aweto and becomes the little creature’s reluctant caretaker. Now he must keep it safe and keep it a secret. But warriors from the creature’s village are close behind, and more fearsome thieves wait ahead….

Translated from the original Chinese, “The Hunt is On” is a visual feast, filled with beautiful watercolor landscapes, intricately detailed maps, and magnificent imaginary creatures. Jun’s fantastical take on the unique historical setting of medieval China imbues the world with wonder, humor, and magic.

First! Get Rewarded as The First ENIAC #1 Customer at Your Comic Store

First Copy Reward Program

ENIAC #1 – the anticipated FIRST ISSUE 48-page spectacular from Matt Kindt, Doug Braithwaite, and Diego Rodriguez– will drop in comic stores around the world on March 3rd and officially launch Bad Idea. To celebrate the launch of their first series, Bad Idea, has announced the First Copy Reward Program.

Beginning with ENIAC #1, and continuing with select releases, they will be sending each BAD IDEA Destination Store location a mysterious and bewildering gold metallic pin. These pins of lore, known to the song singers as the One Pin, were forged by the Dark Lord Josh Johns – between the time when the hordes descended on The Hero Trades and the rise of the comics of the launch wave – to give the first buyers dominion over anyone too sane to wait outside a comic shop before it opens.

You see, these pins are strictly to be awarded only to the first customer to purchase a copy of ENIAC #1 at each Bad Idea Destination store location. That’s right, the first customer to walk in during official store hours and pick up a copy – that includes early-bird Wednesday Warriors buying at the counter, someone picking up a pre-order, a random making a purchase, even the guy who really needs the restroom but then locks eyes with ENIAC – you just have to be the first.

These pins are badges of honor and should be worn proudly and with much pageantry! Each pin will arrive in a sweet (super not collectible so you better wear them!) pin backing that brandishes the BAD IDEA logo and is inscribed with the following:

You will ABSOLUTELY want to be the very first to get a copy of ENIAC #1 at your local comic shop the second it opens on March 3rd. Remember, if you’re not first…you’re last. That’s just math.

If you manage to secure an illustrious pin make sure to post about it on social and tag @badideahello so that its crack social media team can amplify it and spread the word.

My Little Pony Gallops to Netflix with All-New Animated Feature Film and Series

My Little Pony

Hasbro‘s Entertainment One (eOne) has announced the highly anticipated all-new computer animated feature film based on the My Little Pony franchise will premiere on Netflix later this Fall. Fans can also look forward to the release of a new My Little Pony G5 series.

After a decade of heart-warming friendships, daring adventures, and endless laughs, the beloved pony world of Equestria is expanding to introduce a new generation of ponies to a new generation of fans. With even more humor, heart, and adventure, audiences will be swept away to a contemporary and immersive pony universe brought to life like we’ve never seen it before.

Animated by Hasbro’s Boulder Studio in Dublin, the new feature film is the first time the ponies will be seen in theatrical-quality CG animation. The movie is directed by Rob Cullen and Jose Ucha with Mark Fattibene as co-director. Cecil Kramer and Peter Lewis are producers.

In the new movie, the pony world of Equestria has lost its magic. (GASP!) Friendship and Harmony have been replaced by paranoia and mistrust, and Ponies now live separated by species. Sunny – a feisty and idealistic young Earth Pony – is convinced there’s still hope for this divided world… but her slightly misguided and often hilarious efforts to change hearts and minds have led to her being branded a misfit. When Sunny befriends a lost Unicorn named Izzy, who wanders innocently into the Earth Pony town of Maretime Bay, the town has had enough. Izzy and Sunny must embark on an epic adventure that will include a daring jewel heist, outrageous conspiracy theories, elaborate musical numbers, and the world’s cutest flying Pomeranian. Their adventures will take them to faraway lands and force them to challenge the status quo by facing their fears and making new friends out of old enemies. The world Sunny has dreamed of her entire life could finally become a reality as Sunny and her newfound friends fight to prove that even LITTLE ponies can make a BIG difference.

The adventures of Sunny Starscout and her friends will continue with an all-new, computer-animated series coming to Netflix.

The My Little Pony entertainment releases will be accompanied by toys informed by the updated animation style in addition to a robust portfolio of licensed products across fashion, home, publishing, and lifestyle categories.

The man known only as Berzerker is half-mortal and half-God, cursed and compelled to violence…even at the sacrifice of his sanity.

But after wandering the world for centuries, Berzerker may have finally found a refuge – working for the U.S. government to fight the battles too violent and too dangerous for anyone else.

In exchange, Berzerker will be granted the one thing he desires – the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence… and how to end it.

• Also there’s a special guest star…WOLVERINE!! He’s on the cover. I tried to get them to add a red arrow to it, pointing toward him with a circle around his claws, but they said that was “clickbait,” and I said, “Lol, I know.”
• And remember: Real heroes don’t forget to like (this comic) and subscribe (to this comic through their local comic book store).
