Kodoja Project 2012

New York Comic Con maybe over but we're not done! If you missed out on making it this year or didn't make it to the Hot Peas and Butta booth for the exclusives here's what you missed, but fear not because we've got some goodies coming your way!

NYCC 2011 marked the unveiling of our latest project with Record Breakin’ Music and Big Pimp Jones, Kododa. A unique venture, in which the story is first told strictly though soundtrack, and as it progresses, moves into a visual medium. Inspired by Japanese Kaiju cinema, and the deep, monstrous scores composed by Akira Ifukube, along with the bands own style of heavy, funk drums, Kodoja lends itself to being a listening experience unlike any other. Come 2012, the project will be accompanied by a 5 part comic book mini-series, with variant covers by members of the Hot Peas & Butta Artist Collective, and interior pages by Rory Smith.

In addition to revealing the Kodoja monster, NYCC marked the release of Project: Kyojo, the prequel to Kodoja. Project: Kyojo’s music fuses elements of 70s funk, classical, chiptune and 80s soul, spread on a thick layer of hard drum breaks, setting the tone for the story. If you were able to get your hands on one at the con, you are a lucky individual.
