Available July 25th 

It is the near future, and school student violence is out of control.  

In a questionnaire survey for teachers, 98.6% say it is far more  

challenging to teach students than in the past, and 85.8% say it is not  

only more challenging but now dangerous. 

Eventually, due to out-of-control youth violence, a teacher is  

murdered, and the news goes everywhere. As a result, public  

opinion calling for rapid changes to juvenile law boils over in all parts  

of the country. 

The Ministry of Education and the National Assembly, feeling the seriousness of the collapse of the teaching authority, take the news very seriously and revise the Teaching Rights Protection  Act to create a single supervisory body. The name of the supervisory body is the Office of the  Protection of Educational Rights. 

Hwajin Na becomes a supervisor of the Educational Rights Protection Bureau and is sent to a  school where the collapse of the school authority is severe. His teaching techniques are violent for someone who works in the Ministry of Education. But when punishments don’t work on even the worst school bullies, there is no better man for the job. Sometimes you can’t get a good education until those bullies are taught a lesson… 

Also coming soon and now open for pre-order and advance solicitation: 

WITCH OF MINE Vol. 2, story by Haeyoon, art by MAS SRP: $19.99  250 Pages ISBN: 978-1-68497-173-2 Available August 16th  

In these times, if you’re too good or bad at something or simply too  

beautiful, you’re called a witch. But there also exist magical beings  

called witches, who can wield great powers of destruction and  

manipulation, sometimes doing so in the pursuit of love with human  

beings. 

Spinning out from the events of Volume 1, we find another tale of a  

witch’s devotion to true, tenderly mortal love. Disguising herself to fit  

into the world of humans, Cordelia desires to build a life with the  

kind-hearted Michael, but can their love survive the truth of her  

origins? Plus: can a resilient human woman change the heart of one of the witches’ cynical sisters?

ON THE WAY TP Edition, story by Paco Hernández, art by José Ángel Ares SRP: $19.99 172 Pages ISBN: 978-1-68497-130-5 • Available August 16th  

Emma, a newly single cartoonist in her thirties, impulsively finds  

herself standing in Roncesvalles with her gaze fixed on Santiago de  

Compostela. Following the pilgrimage route known as The Way of St.  

James, she realizes the path she is traveling is bringing her closer to  

and somehow farther away from everyone around her, that the weight  

of her backpack is more than the clothes and pans inside, and that  

what she believed to be a simple walk to get some miles behind her  

(and her past) is a chance to learn not only about the people she  

meets along the way, but also herself. 

Creators Paco Hernández & José Ángel Ares bring you a story of friendship, family, and learning.  An emotional journey from which no one will return to being the same.
