It was another race to the finishing line, as we prepared for San Diego Comic Con 2018. The book was almost ready, but it had to be proofed, lettered, and eventually sent to our printer in the USA.

Evolution is quite different from the other books, in that it is part fiction, part role-play. Much of the narrative was acted out at our immersive theatre events, and what you read is a graphicised account based on actor / performer feedback.

We’re glad to say that our plan to combine both worlds in a co-created story is coming together. It also marks the start of a working relationship with artist Megan Bradbury, who has partially agreed to work on Angel Corps by Haley Moore, which we hope is a new tentacle in this weird world of Clockwork Watch.

Megan had her first glimpse of the new book while at SDCC.

We always look forward to getting feedback from readers, and chatting with them about how the story is developing, especially as we initially intended on doing three books, and we’re now on book eight! But one thing we’ve noticed is that many are really excited about the co-created nature of this story, after all – they are creating part of the narrative.

But hold a minute, I hear you say… How about the newly published Evolution Omnibus – our third collected edition, with a stylishly designed cover by Fabio Duarte Martin? Yes, this is in fact our  11th book (we now have three omnibus editions), and guess what? There’s more to come.


The final two chapters of the main story – “Sins Of My Father” are currently being illustrated by Jennie Gyllblad, and will be published in 2019 and 2020 respectively, while Angel Corps is scheduled somewhere in between, and then we have a difficult decision of whether to adapt the film script or not.

SDCC also gave us a chance to re-cover the Tick Tock IPA Omnibus in shiny gold – another winning move by Fabio.


Back to Comic Con. It was great to see all our readers, connect with new supporters, and we had an amazing time at the Starburner Courier Service Steampunk Gathering. Check out the gallery below.

We hope to get reviews of Clockwork Watch: Evolution soon, which normally happens close to the launch at The Lakes Comic Art Festival (LICAF) in Kendal this October.

To the many friends that have asked when we’ll host one of our immersive live events outside London, we are proud to announce that the Clockwork Watch team are collaborating with students of Kendal College, and LICAF  to host “We Are Angels” our next live show, and yes… it will be based in Kendal, Lake District. Check out the LICAF event website for details.


Clockwork Watch Resumes…


It has been years since the onset of the Dark Winter, and Victorian society is finally getting to grips with living in smoke.

A lifetime of burning fuels to power the big mechanical machines, coupled with diverse weather conditions created a deadly pea-souper that plunged the world into darkness.

Time has moved on…

Geeks Unleashed Delve Into Clockwork Watch

“this project is definitely one to watch and, more importantly, get involved in.” – Geeks Unleashed!

It’s always great to have a good review, but sometimes it goes much further than a few column inches. While Clockwork Watch is a Steampunk story, it’s more about engaging participants in co-creation and storytelling. Thanks to the guys at Geeks Unleashed – you rock!

Angel Falls From The Sky….

Laser Lace

After labouring with this new baby, I can now announce that Clockwork Watch is more than a labour of love. I know some will beg to differ, but you have to admit we’ve done some amazing things with the £6500 crowdfunded through IndieGoGo!

And now a new chapter is about to begin… One of the inspirations behind starting this adventure was to create a platform through which people can tell their own stories, by using our ongoing narrative as a guide – we create the story universe, and you create a character and help build the world. So far our participants have registered, but many have been shy to take up the challenge and become storytellers or just contribute, that is until now.

The first project to launch off the Clockwork Watch narrative is a crossover / collaboration with Haley Moore (aka @Toenolla),  maker of extraordinary objects and a killa storyteller in her own right.

Transmedia is a relatively new concept that really hasn’t been defined or explored at great depth. We would like you to join us on this adventure, we believe it is the start of “something wonderful

Here’s the intro to Haley’s story:

We’d Like You To Tell A Story

Calling Steampunk Storytellers!

Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria

Clockwork Watch is a collaborative storytelling project, every week we publish the latest news from the story universe in our newspaper The London Gazette.

We would like to invite participants to take their cue from the latest news, and contribute stories, photographs, videos, even drawings showing how developments in our story affect a character living in the Clockwork Watch universe.

Coincidently, next week’s issue is about Queen Victoria’s Royal Jubilee, the controversy surrounding development of Clockwork Automata, and the row over Science.

Want to help tell our story? Send your submissions to: or register a character and own some virtual real estate in an innovative form of storytelling.

You can also catch-up on the story through our online newspaper, and  Clockwork Watch: The Arrival, our first graphic novel.
