Published on May 22, 2022

  • Creatd unveils graphic novel development arm with the goal of collaborating with creators on its Vocal platform.
  • Creatd Studios teams up with artist, filmmaker, and writer Larry Blamire, the creator behind Steam Wars, and cult-favorite The LostSkeleton of Cadavra, for the release of its first graphic novel slated for release in Fall 2022.

NEW YORK, May 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Creatd, Inc. (Nasdaq CM: CRTD) ("Creatd" or the "Company"), the parent company of Creatd Studios, today announced the launch of the new graphic novel development initiative within its Creatd Studios pillar. For its inaugural project, Creatd Studios has teamed up with creator Larry Blamire for the production and release of his steampunk graphic novel, Steam Wars.

Larry Blamire is a filmmaker, artist and fan-favorite for the independent film The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. With Steam Wars, steampunk fans are introduced to a world filled with giant steam-powered fighting machines, brave heroes, and heroines – and Theodore Roosevelt, to boot. The graphic novel depicts a gritty and highly detailed late-19th century reality in which wars are fought with fleets of massive coal-fired fighting machines in the form of ancient warriors.

Said Jacob Frommer, Head of Graphic Novel Development at Creatd Studios, "We are excited to have this opportunity to work with artist and independent filmmaker, Larry Blamire, and to bring his exceptional sci-fi reality to physical bookshelves. Steam Wars marks our first publication of a graphic novel penned by creative talent sourced from Vocal and published by Creatd Studios."

Commented Larry Blamire, author of Steam Wars, "There is something about this medium that enables a level of world-building that can't be achieved in other formats. It really satisfies the inner geek, and that's a feeling shared by my innovative and forward-thinking partners at Creatd. As steampunk culture continues to grow worldwide in popularity, we feel this is the perfect time to partner up and make this happen. Our expectation is to have a screen-adaptation or game development partnership announced later this year."
