Official Press Release
Claudio Sanchez, singer/guitarist of the platinum-selling rock group, Coheed and Cambria, announced today that his mini-series THE AMORY WARS will debut its inaugural collection at this year's New York Comic Con.
"While it first appeared as our music, THE AMORY WARS' has really come alive with the comics," said writer Claudio Sanchez. "I grew up reading the classic comics, primarily Stan Lee and his Marvel mythology, and sci-fi films and horror. I find influence inf Frank Herbert, Clive Barker and John Carpenter. It's a work in progress, but I'm really happy how the story is unfolding finally and fans get to debunk some of the myths that have been surrounding it for so long."
AMORY WARS reveals the story behind the Coheed & Cambria album, Second Stage Turbine Blade, in which husband and wife, Coheed & Cambria, learn of their forgotten past as intergalactic terrorists and the horrible fate they've passed on to their children. The collection also includes a brand-new cover by Tony Moore (WALKING DEAD, FEAR AGENT) and features the first look at this summer's second AMORY WARS series, featuring new artist Gabriel Guzman. In addition, Sanchez will be appearing at the New York Comic Con, signing at both the Evil Ink and Image Comics booths.
