From Webtoon To Print With Get Schooled
The links between digital comics, webcomics and webtoons continue to strengthen with the news from Ablaze Publishing on Get Schooled.
Gritty “school of hard knocks” manhwa action series based on the popular Webtoon debuts in print for the first time!
Comics and graphic novel publisher ABLAZE notably expands its manhwa and webtoon-inspired catalogs this summer with the print release on July 25th of GET SCHOOLED.
The gritty action series by Yongtaek Chae and Garam Han is based on a smash hit webtoon produced by the renowned Korean Studio, YLAB, and has drawn strong international audience acclaim. In GET SCHOOLED, Hwajin Na’s teaching techniques are violent for a bureaucrat from the Ministry of Education. But when punishments don't seem to work on even the worst of 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.
“We are extremely proud to announce the addition of this title to the ABLAZE print catalog,” says Rich Young. “GET SCHOOLED has built a strong following as a webtoon, and the graphic novel debut from ABLAZE will allow fans to enjoy this tense action drama in a whole new way and will provide a great entry point for new readers. The juncture between webtoons and manhwa is strong and continues to develop a global audience. We invite readers to GET SCHOOLED this summer.”

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 seem to work on even the worst of 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...
