Don’t just read this comic – hear it! ROK Records has just released the first free audio-enhanced issue of FURIOUS, starring none other than Geordie rapping superstar Rick Fury.
Featuring a full soundtrack that brings the story added life and excitement, FURIOUS is set in an alternate, dangerous Britain where Northern England has been leased to China to pay Britain’s enormous debts and Scotland is an independent nation. On the streets of South Shields – now Shanghai North – the rebellious population are subject to absolute rule, where many forms of entertainment are banned and street gangs enforce the law of the occupying nation.
Rick Fury and fellow rap star Layla Lu voice the audio comic script from Rick Fury himself (assisted by Ben Kendrick) with art by Marc Olivent, colour from Kirsty Swan, lettered by Jim Campbell.
The ongoing FURIOUS audio comic is just one more step in artist/rapper Rick Fury’s path to global domination! Rick’s exceptional talent puts him at the forefront of his profession, bringing a fresh look to Hip Hop, rapping about everyday situations and life in general.
Rick Fury is undoubtedly one of the North East’s finest and most hard working emcees. His remarkable story-telling ability, sincerity, humour and masterful wordplay have gained him wide recognition as one of the best. Constantly writing, performing and making music,both as a solo artist and in collaborations… Rick truly does live and breathe his art.
