Creative Team

James Watson, Series Creator

James got his start in film as a layout artist for the animated series ‘Turbo Teen’ and ‘Dragons Lair’ in the mid-80s. In 1997, he created Atlantis Studios, a graphic arts studio specializing in adapting film properties into graphic novel format.

Among the notable projects adapted by the studio was The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines, a Dean Devlin / Electric Entertainment film, the second in the popular Librarian movie series. His original comic The Adventures of Paula Peril was also adapted into film.

Inspired by his childhood love of science fiction and family-friendly adventure films, James began adapting his screenplay ‘Fallen Star’ into an exciting graphic novel series call The Star Runner Chronicles. This series will roll out in multiple, three-part episodes over the next two years.
