Clockwork Watch: Graphic Novels

Clockwork Watch is my second Transmedia film project, but this time the genre is Steampunk.

It’s a  love story set in a retro-futuristic universe, and the narrative is told through graphic novels, live events, an online newspaper, role-play, and film – it’s a 5-year story.

We launched the project with a crowdfuding campaign in 2011, where we raised £6500 to produce our first graphic novel. Subsequently we won the 2012 IndieGoGo Best Crowdfunded Graphic Novel Award!

I’m working with Corey Brotherson (Editor), and Jennie Gyllblad (Illustrator / Artist and Letterer.

I can confirm that there will be nine (9) books in the Clockwork Watch series. The books can be purchased from the Clockwork Watch online shop
