Ohio-based effects pedal company EarthQuaker Devices has come up with a unique way of marketing its range, launching a comic-book series. 

EarthQuaker Comics publishes Octo Skull, its first foray into the world of comic books on 1st September 2016.

Octo Skull is an epic fantasy adventure set in a magical and unforgiving universe with characters and locations inspired by the company’s line of musical effects pedals. Legendary barbarian warrior Octo Skull is on a quest through the haunted Ghost Echo canyon to the murky Depths to defend the world from demonic invasion at the hands of the merciless Hoof Reaper.

The comic is written and drawn by EarthQuaker Devices staff artist Matt Horak (The Covenant, Space Stepdad, Dr. Crowe), with colors by Chris O’Halloran (Star Wars Rebels, Star Trek: Waypoint), and letters by Crank! (Rick and Morty, Battlepug).

The five page online prologue launches at on September 1st with new pages added every Tuesday and Thursday, and will feature an exclusive soundtrack with original music by EarthQuaker Devices artists. A print edition will follow.
