Jerrick Media, a Digital Media Company Founded by Jeremy Frommer and Rick Schwartz, Announced Today the Collaboration With Acclaimed Writer Larry Blamire and Artist Tyler Kirkham to Produce a New Graphic Novel Series, STEAM WARS

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 05, 2015) - Jerrick Media will exclusively develop the first three novels in Blamire's repertoire. Blamire began developing STEAM WARS long before the term "steampunk" emerged in pop-culture. The story takes place in 1897, and warfare is fought in large steam-powered fighting machines, called "steam rigs", manned by crews.

Artist Tyler Kirkham acts as STEAM WARS project manager and art director. On his involvement, he said, "It was a privilege to see the project come together. In the end, I feel STEAM WARS is something special, and a cool new take on Victorian era steam powered machines and warfare."

Jerrick Media CEO Jeremy Frommer said, "It is a privilege to work with creative talent like Larry and Tyler. Personally, I've been a huge fan of Larry for years. STEAM WARS will be a visually stunning piece of work, as well as a great story."

Coining his work, "blue collar sci-fi", Larry Blamire's STEAM WARS is down-and-dirty grittiness contrasted with Victorian elegance, featuring rugged grease-spattered steam engines decorated with ornate brass, copper, and wrought iron.

Creator and writer Larry Blamire said, "To say that it was fortuitous when Jeremy first saw STEAM WARS is an understatement. He is someone who keenly understands the potential of a project, then sets out to make it happen. Seeing this epic story come to fruition is a longtime dream of mine."

The expected release for STEAM WARS is Spring of 2016.
