, was released on May 25 in six languages: English, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, and Hindi. "The timing [of the new localization relationship with GlobalComix] aligned perfectly with the release of Lesser Evils
," AWA Managing Editor Will Graves noted, "and what better property to launch in multiple languages than a comic universe that takes place in one of the most diverse places in the world, Brooklyn, NY."
The Lesser Evil universe includes a golem with benefits, a spiraling genie, a demon who feeds on bad vibes, and a mischievous mermaid, who interact with humans in Bushwick.
