Book Nerdection – Los Angeles, CA, Oct 4, 2023 – Acclaimed novelist Brian James Gage launches his groundbreaking AI-generated graphic novel series, The Nosferatu Conspiracy. This graphic serial is based on his trilogy of horror novels of the same name, which have garnered critical acclaim and won multiple awards. The trilogy is now reborn as an epic graphic novel serialization that promises to captivate readers with its rich storytelling and innovative AI-generated artwork.
From Bestselling Novels to a Graphic Novel Series
Originally known for his horror novels, Gage garnered an audience with his self-released novel The Sleepwalker, the first installment of The Nosferatu Conspiracy trilogy. The novel exposed the historical cover-up of Rasputin’s paranormal coup d’etat, when the tsar’s infamous advisor summoned ancient vampires that destroyed Saint Petersburg and the Romanov Dynasty in 1916. The Sleepwalker hit Amazon Kindle in March 2020 and went on to sell 20,000 copies exclusively on the Amazon platform. Subsequently, the novel won seven prestigious Best Horror awards, including the silver medal in the 2021 Benjamin Franklin Award and the top honor at the 2021 Independent Press Awards.
Following the success of The Sleepwalker, Gage’s equally spine-tingling second novel, The Sommelier, revealed Kaiser Wilhelm’s true, supernatural motivations for entering World War I, earning multiple starred reviews and four Best Horror nods, including the coveted title of Best Horror Novel at the 2023 Independent Press Awards. The epic final to the trilogy, The Last Seraph, will be released in late 2024.
A Transition to Graphic Novel Serialization with the Use of AI
Setting a trailblazing precedent, Brian James Gage is reimagining his haunting trilogy into an ambitious graphic novel serialization that will span an estimated thirty volumes upon completion. In a daunting artistic endeavor, Gage has set out to create the entire graphic novel series by himself with only the use of AI and Photoshop.
Introducing Volume One: Lady of the Loch
The journey begins on October 4, 2023, with the release of The Nosferatu Conspiracy volume one: Lady of the Loch. In this graphic rendition of the first three chapters of The Sleepwalker, a mysterious young woman with amnesia pulled from a legendary lake in the Carpathian Mountains is discovered to be Princess Alix of Hesse, future empress of Russia. Russian aristocrats prepare to welcome a vampiric messiah who will depose Tsar Nicholas and unleash darkness across Europe. Readers will be drawn into a macabre and enthralling narrative, eerily illustrated by Gage’s AI-generated artwork.
