Snails To Release A Comic Book “The Sluggernaut”

Here’s a first and unusual piece of news for the EDM scene, one of Bass’ big producers, Snails, is releasing the first issue in his The Shell comic book series in Marvel-like style, called “The Sluggernaut.” The comic book will provide a glimpse into the creative universe that fuels the Montreal-based artist’s music and live performances. The team includes Snails (co-writer), Maria Filippone (co-writer) and French artist Dr. Fanx (penciller, inker and colorist).

 

Just a few weeks after announcing his newest “Slimeageddon” EP, Snails has announced another massive milestone in his prolific career: the launch of his very own comic book series, The Shell, and its debut issue The Sluggernaut. Through its vivid imagery and captivating storylines, The Sluggernaut provides a glimpse into the creative universe that fuels the Vomitstep producer’s music and live event concepts. Snails teamed up with French artist Dr. Fanx and co-writer Maria Filipone to bring the Vomitsquad’s colorful world – including King Slugz, King Frogz, Sluggtopia and The Shell – to life in Marvel-like style. On the surface, The Sluggernaut’s plot may seem like it’s all about King Slugz’s intergalactic, worm-fighting battles, but Snails has a much deeper meaning behind the series. At its core, The Sluggernaut is the story of a flawed hero desperate to save his people, and its theme centered on perseverance in the face of tremendous obstacles.Through the engage plotlines and immersive art, Snails creatively conveys his believe that one has an obligation to fulfill one’s own destiny.

 

“My music and shows have always been attached to a story. Frogz, King Slugz, Sluggtopia and The Shell are all part of a bigger vision – one that hasn’t been fully explained … until now. Super proud to announce that The Sluggernaut comic book will be released on November 26th. Check out the first 11 pages and pre-order your physical copy for the full story!” Said Snails.

 

Snails has had a massive year by any means of measurement: he released a full length remix album of his cult favorite “The Shell,” launched his own record label Slugz Music, and rounded out 2018 with a massive North American tour featuring an awe-inspiring, mind-bending holographic stage dubbed “The Shell 2.0.” His “Vomitstep” sound first found a home on the praised label OWSLA and has led him to work alongside figures like Skrillex, Diplo and more. Then, Snails created Slugz Music as a home for his music and others’ that is as outrageous as they want it to be. Now with the launch of his own comic book series – a territory previously uncharted in the electronic scene – his accomplishments speak for themselves in demonstrating that Snails is truly an artist with no boundaries. The Sluggernaut is only the beginning of Snails’s The Shell comic book series, so stay tuned for the next chapter of the saga!

Rezz Announces ‘Mass Manipulation’ Comic Book

With the help of illustrator and animator Luis Colindres, rising dance music superstar REZZ has brought her extraterrestrial ‘Mass Manipulation’ album to life in the form of a 60-page comic book. The comic book is available for pre-order now, and is accompanied with the release of an animated music video for ‘Premonition,’ giving viewers a sneak peek of the comic book storyline.

Luis Colindres and I created ‘Mass Manipulation’ as a 60-page comic book to help tell the story of my album.  It shows REZZ arriving from Neptune to mass manipulate and hypnotize planet earth. Accompanying the comic book is an animated music video for ‘Premonition’, which features images and highlights from the comic book,” said Rezz

 

Playing a young alien from Neptune who crash lands on Earth, REZZ befriends two earthlings as they discover her incredible innate ability; hypnosis through music. The comic invites readers to step into the psychedelic world of REZZ as she embarks on a mind-bending journey to manipulate the masses and ultimately achieve her final mission, bringing peace and love to earth. Paired with a lively music video to support the comic, both new and old fans of REZZ can now fully tune into the cult of REZZ.

 

REZZ has had a clear vision since day one, breathing life into the electronic music scene through her dark, hypnotic soundscapes while her audible, musical vision became visually interpreted with poise and accuracy by Chicago based illustrator Luis Colindres.  Colindres began working with REZZ on her ‘Something Wrong Here’ EP, and has been integral in setting her visual standard by designing the ‘Mass Manipulation’ album cover, tour art, and now the comic book and ‘Premonition’ music video.

The visual narrative appropriately titled ‘Mass Manipulation’ is now available for pre-order in the format of a physical comic for the very first time. REZZ will continue her ‘Mass Manipulation’ World Tour throughout the year, hypnotizing North America, Australasia and Europe throughout 2017.
