The graphic novel, Stargazer Episode Zero – Ring of Fire, was written by New York-based author Adam J. Rodriguez. “I uploaded the first short version of Stargazer to Amazon on Labor Day weekend out of curiosity,” Rodriguez said. “I had no expectations, and I certainly did not think my experimental comic would ever top the charts.”
However, the book did quickly reach the top spot in both the Sci-Fi and Superhero Graphic Novel categories for Kindle over the Labor Day weekend. Within two days of being listed, the experimental graphic novel made a leap over established names like Stranger Things, Star Wars, Doctor Who, and Sandman – among others.
“Not only was I in the same company as books and franchises I adored, from Doctor Who to Spiderman and Stranger Things, but I was at the top of the list,” Rodriguez recounted. “I cannot describe the euphoria of that small moment.”
“When I decided to create a graphic novel using AI, it was nothing more than a creative experiment,” says Rodriguez. “I had no idea that I was going to be able to create something that I could show people, much less tell a cohesive story that people might enjoy reading.”
Adam J. Rodriguez now holds the distinction of having written the first AI-Illustrated Graphic Novel to reach Number One on Amazon. The book has been featured in several articles and several more issues in the series will be coming out this year – including one drawn by a human illustrator.
“The original issue of the Stargazer story was drawn by a fantastic illustrator named Rita Torres,” noted Rodriguez. “And I am really excited to release it again so that the two stories and artistic styles can be viewed side by side. I think it’ll be interesting from a story perspective and also as part of the emerging AI art discussion.”
Stargazer Episode Zero – Ring of Fire is available now on Amazon, Google Books, Smash Words, and Barnes and Noble. The first issue is free on every platform.
