The book is written by Jason Aaron and Ryan Cady. Further, Takashi Okazaki, Vasilis Lolos, Rosi Kampe, Rufus Dayglo and Deathburger illustrated the novel. “Sound & Fury chronicles stories from the world before the corporate apocalypse brought on by Slick and Slim and the 1,000 Likes Corporation and the period after,” the description reads.
