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.


Immersed in the Clockwork Underworld – Steampunk Chronicle Review

Steampunk Chronicle

Steampunk Chronicle

As I entered the main room, I was met with cobbled streets, store fronts and street signs denoting my location as seedy Whitechapel. Above me floated a dirigible, at least 4 foot wide and 15 feet long. Behind it, the glass roof of the venue showed looming brick buildings and a foggy London sky.

A great review of our main live event for 2013 – Clockwork Underworld – put together by  L.C. Longo of the Steampunk Chronicle.

Calling Set Designers!!

We are putting a team together to design the interior of the venue hosting our next live event in London.

We need to connect with people who can help design the layout and sections of the space.

Kindly contact “informer – @ – clockworkwatch – dot – com” if you are interested in being involved. We will be arranging a meeting soon to discuss plans!

Breakaway Preview – FREE DOWNLOAD!

We are eight months into a 5-year long story and Clockwork Watch is attracting a lot of interest from around the world. Thank you so much for helping to start the process, your support is the reason we’ve been able to carry on with the adventure.

We understand that Clockwork Watch is a content heavy experience, and with so many people contributing to the narrative, things can often be overlooked or overshadowed. With this in mind we have produced the Clockwork Watch: Breakaway Preview 2013, a limited edition review of the story so far, which includes photographs from the Tomorrow’s World… Today! event. The book also acts as a preview to our next graphic novel, Breakaway.

There are only 50 copies available, initially we are offering the actual books to people that came to the Tomorrow’s World… Today event, and are featured in the photographs within it; however, the remaining copies are up for grabs!

Download a digital version of the book for free.

Part two of Clockwork Watch starts very soon, but in which country???

Thank you!!!!

Clockwork Watch Team

Are You Ready? Camera, Lights, Action!!!

Many parts of the Clockwork Watch story will be played out in the real world, as part of an immersive live-event ethos. We believe this approach encourages ‘play’ and opens the narrative to participants who want to become involved in our storyworld.

The objective is for people to share their personal experiences, in other words tell our story. Each contribution has the potential to shape the narrative, by making creative adjustments to the project.

Our second foray into this territory comes in the form of  “industrial action‘ or a strike, called by the Union for the Casual Labourer – a group representing people working on the Clockwork Project at the Department for the Advancement of Sciences. Many workers believe jobs will be at risk if the automatons they’re developing become active.

The Casual Labourer Strike is a ‘working class’ day of action, where anyone following this story can participate by going on strike. We would like everyone interested in storytelling, Steampunk, Victoriana or just role-playing to join us on July 14th 2012. You do not have to be a trade unionist to strike, in fact we hope people choose other factions, even oppose the day of action.

Create a placard stating your grievance, don your working class finery, take a photograph or video, write a story and share it on your social stream – Twitter, Facebook, blog or send it to us at (informer – @ – clockworkwatch-dot- com).

The strike is a major development in the Clockwork Watch story, and we need your help in making it happen. We hope to rally a global show of strength, some of us will picket the Advancement of Sciences Roadshow on July 14th / 15th, but kindly join us in spirit, where ever you are!

Kindly post details of your intent on our Facebook Event page, and you can follow the story live on our tweeter stream @ClockworkWatch. Read all about it in our online paper The London Gazette.

Don’t forget this is all about PLAY, and we hope you enjoy the experience.

Brothers, Sisters, drop your tools, we’re going on strike – OUT!
