GET CAUGHT UP! THE AMORY WARS: ULTIMATE EDITION HC COLLECTS FIRST TWO TRADES INCLUDING NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN MATERIAL

BOTH COMIC AND TRADE COME ON THE HEELS OF COHEED AND CAMBRIA’S NEW ALBUM YEAR OF THE BLACK RAINBOW THIS APRIL

THE AMORY WARS comic book returns this May, now from BOOM! Studios! Don’t miss the next chapter of the Coheed & Cambria mythos, straight from the band’s lead singer, Claudio Sanchez (KILL AUDIO) and now joined by legendary comic book writer Peter David (THE DARK TOWER: THE LONG ROAD HOME, SHE-HULK) with THE AMORY WARS: IN KEEPING SECRETS OF SILENT EARTH: 3 #1 this May.

Fans who missed the first go round have no excuse not to get caught up, as BOOM! Studios presents THE AMORY WARS: ULTIMATE EDITION HC collecting the first two trades, including never-before-seen material.

Both the new THE AMORY WARS comic series and hardcover come on the heels of COHEED AND CAMBRIA’s new album YEAR OF THE BLACK RAINBOW this April, co-released with a novel of the same name, also written by Sanchez and David.

“Working with Claudio has been an absolute revelation in terms of Coheed and Cambria’s popularity,” said AMORY WARS co-writer Peter David. “I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve encountered people who don’t read “X-Factor,” never heard of “Fallen Angel,” but I mention that I’m working with Claudio and they instantly declare their undying love for all things C&C. They start rattling off titles, song lyrics, and they absolutely cannot wait to get their hands on the next installment of Claudio’s epic science fiction vision. For those fans who have been waiting years for this new comic series, the wait is over. For anyone who’s going to be entering Claudio’s world for the first time, welcome to Heaven’s Fence.”

“I know fans have been waiting for this story for years,” said Coheed and Cambria lead singer and AMORY WARS writer Claudio Sanchez. “I’m excited about partnering with Peter David and BOOM! Studios to finally get this story out of my head and into your hands.”

THE AMORY WARS tells the story of Claudio Kilgannon, son of Coheed and Cambria, the subjects of a privately developed anti-terrorist unit. The insidious Supreme Tri-mage Wilhelm Ryan, self-proclaimed ruler of Heaven’s Fence a network of 78 planets, sets forth to decimate those that could stand in his way, which include Coheed, Cambria and their children. Claudio must discover his role in this galactic turmoil and come to terms with his own growth in worlds that are always changing. THE AMORY WARS is the story behind the band Coheed and Cambria’s music, and fans have tried to unlock the true course of events encrypted in the lyrics since the band first debuted.

The complete SECOND STAGE TURBINE BLADE saga will be collected in THE AMORY WARS ULTIMATE EDITION, also released in May, and is perfect for fans to get caught up on the story behind the band’s music. This release is also timed to coincide with the April release of Coheed and Cambria’s newest album, YEAR OF THE BLACK RAINBOW. THE AMORY WARS ULTIMATE EDITION HC is priced at $29.99.

THE AMORY WARS: IN KEEPING SECRETS OF SILENT EARTH: 3 #1 hits shelves in May, featuring covers by Tim Bradstreet and Scott Keating, a 1-in-10 incentive cover, and interior art by Chris Burnham. THE AMORY WARS: IN KEEPING SECRETS OF SILENT EARTH: 3 #1 is $3.99.

A NEW MINI-SERIES  FROM CRIMINAL CO-CONSPIRATOR SEAN PHILLIPS!

7 MEN. 1 IMPOSSIBLE MISSION. ASSASSINATE HITLER!

This May BOOM! Studios brings you a World War II epic like no other with 7 PSYCHOPATHS, written by Fabien Vehlmann and interior art by CRIMINAL co-conspirator Sean Phillips.

With World War II in full swing, there’s only one way to draw the war to a quick end: kill Hitler. But who would be insane enough to try? One person knows just the men to do it. Insane? Psychotic? Mad? Call them what you will, but the 7 PSYCHOPATHS are now the only hope the world has!

7 PSYCHOPATHS is probably the most difficult story I’ve ever drawn,” said 7 PSYCHOPATHS artist Sean Phillips. “Nine or ten panel pages, having to find reference for everything I had to draw, drawing a type of story I’d never tackled before, it was hard work. Many times I wondered if it was worth the effort. Then I started to receive jpegs of Hubert’s coloured pages, and it was definitely worth it. He’s made it look like a book drawn by someone who knew what he was doing! It seemed as if I could do Fabien’s great story justice after all.”

7 PSYCHOPATHS #1 hits shelves in May, is written by Fabien Vehlmann and features cover and interior art by Sean Phillips. Cover price for 7 PSYCHOPATHS #1 is $3.99.

  1. Amory Wars comics are awesome to talk about. I admit that I’ve only read the wikipedia on it and heard every song on every Coheed album for the last 6 years of my life. They’re great, thinking of seeing them in Philly with Circa Survive in May. Anyways, great post. Anyone talking anything Coheed always gets me all happy and gushy inside. Love comic books, keep up teh good work.
