In the vibrant world of comic book creation, where fandom, lore, and originality are the driving forces behind captivating stories, is there room for artificial intelligence?
Phil Gelatt, an Emmy award-winning screenwriter, director, video game writer and comic book creator, thinks so. He embraced the opportunity when invited to collaborate with OMEN by HP and Anonymous Content’s The Lab to produce a new comic book, with help from generative AI. The Way Forward: Into the Unknown is a project that blurs the lines between human creativity and advanced technology.
Gelatt has been recognized for his writing on the Love, Death + Robots series and blockbuster game The Rise of Tomb Raider. Now his latest venture into the world of AI storytelling is inspiring him to think about the future of creative collaboration.
“As a writer, I’m always interested in finding new tools that can be used in the service of building worlds and telling stories,” he says.
