Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce a new wave of licenses from webcomic publisher Hiveworks Comics: three more graphic novels of popular webcomic series, to be distributed in new trade paperback editions to bookstores and other retailers around the world. The new releases include the full-color supernatural dystopian adventure tale Awaken Vol. 1 by Koti Saavedra, the full-color and critically acclaimed LGBT+ fantasy Never Satisfied Vol. 1 by Taylor Robin, and the Eisner-nominated swashbuckling adventure Tiger, Tiger Vol. 1 by Petra Erika Nordlund.
Piras, the capricious and spoiled son of a military hero, dreams of becoming an elite Knight for the Nova Empire. But one day, when he literally crashes into a mysterious woman on the street, his life is turned upside down. Saved from a monstrous creature by a group of “terrorists,” Piras is mesmerized by the strange new power that flows through him–only to learn that the Empire will hunt him down for it. Is this the end of his charmed life, and the start of a new quest for the truth behind the Nova Empire and the people it labels enemies? This supernatural action-mystery comic, heavily influenced by shonen manga, is written and drawn in full color by Chilean artist Koti Saavedra.

To young magicians, there is one job coveted more than any: representative champion of their city. Lucy Marlowe is a non-binary apprentice out to prove themself to an apathetic master. The other apprentice magicians reach out to Lucy and each other, but as the competition heats up, it’s unclear if friendship can bloom when they are all pitted against each other.
