Sturgill Simpson To Release ‘Sound & Fury’ Graphic Novel, A Prequel To The Anime Film

If you’re one of those folks that complained about Sturgill deviating from his country roots to cut a “sleazy, steamy, psychedelic, rock n’ roll” record, you might want to turn the dial… this news ain’t for you.

Sturgill has just announced that in addition to the trippy anime film that accompanied his Sound & Fury record, he will be teaming up with Z2 Comics to put together a graphic novel that will serve as a prequel to the film.

Featuring a story by Jason Aaron and artwork by Takashi Okazaki, Rufus Dayglo, Deathburger, Rosi Kempe, and Vasilis Lolos, the novel tells the tale of the events leading up to 2019’s groundbreaking Netflix film of the same name.

It will be published by Z2 Comics who called it “creatively this is one of the most ambitious projects we have published to date, with an incredible team behind it. The end result will not only be worth the wait, but will be one of the most complete realizations of any artist’s vision in the history of our company.”

Jason Aaron has worked with Marvel Comics, the Star Wars series in 2015, Marvel’s flagship Avengers series and the recently relaunched Conan The Barbarian. Takashi Okazaki is the renowned Japanese artist behind “Afro Samurai”.

Sound & Fury: The Graphic Novel’ hits shelves on November 17th. More information and details on how to pre-order are available here.

Oh, and by the way, Sturgill is also partnering with his buddy and archer extraordinaire John Dudley to raffle off one of the most badass bows ever made. If you’re familiar with the archery world, bow hunting community, or even Joe Rogan’s podcast, you undoubtedly know John is one of the best in the business.

If you want to be a true Dick Daddy survival specialist, you might need one of these bad boys. The money from the raffle is going to a great cause.

“My friend John Dudley is raffling the VERY FIRST Nock On bow! This bow is serial number # 001 and valued at over $3500, plus will be built to custom specs by John for the winner of the raffle. All money raised will go directly to the Special Forces Foundation, a 501c3 who’s mission is to provide support to severely wounded Green Berets and the families of the fallen.

Still four days to go on the raffle and they’ve already raised over $60K!!
