If you ever felt like Snails' songs and visuals followed a theme, you weren't all that far off. The "vomitstep" pioneer has revealed that each facet of his creative vision is intended to tell a bigger story - one that fans will get to know better through a new comic book series called The Shell.
As can be seen in the first 11 pages of "The Sluggernaut," which marks the first issue of The Shell, the series follows Soldier Slugz as he protects Slugz City from villains. The Snails (real name Frédérik Durand) has co-written the story alongside Maria Filipone, and French artist Dr. Fanx has provided illustrations.
In a statement, Durand said:
"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!"
"The Sluggernaut" in its entirety arrives by way of Slugz Comics on November 26th. In the meantime, take a look at the first 11 pages of the 26-page first issue of The Shell and pre-order your copy here.
