GlobalComix and AWA teams for Lesser Evils and “Global First” Localization

GlobalComix has announced a “Global First” localization partnership with AWA Studios, beginning with the release of Emmett: A Lesser Evils Story

As part of a new service in 2022 and beyond, the Global First mission focuses on translation and multiple language adaptations in order to bring all the world’s comics online, to reach readers in whichever language they are most comfortable with. From comic books to short films and webtoons, part one (of four) of the Brooklyn-based, horror/supernatural adventures has debuted on GlobalComix with the digital release of Emmett: A Lesser Evils Story, written by Ian Grody with art by Yishan Li.

Welcome to Brooklyn Through the Looking Glass, where a golem with benefits, a spiraling genie, a demon who feeds on bad vibes, and a mischievous mermaid collide with heartbroken, hard-living, and hype-obsessed humans. Lesser Evils is a hilarious, pop culture-filled universe that explores what intimacy, spite, selflessness, and friendship mean today.

Meet Lydia Loew, an artisan potter, who goes on a bender after a bad breakup. Then, in anguish and anger, she accidentally conjures up a golem from clay in her Bushwick studio.

Enter Emmett, a golem with benefits. He mixes a mean cocktail, is handy around the house, and will help Lydia exact revenge, with a vengeance. 

Following the digital release of GlobalComix’s Emmett: A Lesser Evils Story, AWA Studios will debut never-before-seen content from the Lesser Evils universe at Tribeca Festival in New York, directed by Justin Fair. Print copies of the comic series will be available with special QR code that unlocks the comic in six languages: English, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, and Hindi.
