Official Press Release
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.
