Comic-Con 2009: Coheed & Cambria's Claudio Sanchez on His New Comic Series and All-Time Favorite Titles
For much of the past decade, Claudio Sanchez has been fusing the comic book world and music realm through Coheed and Cambria. Named for two fictional characters, the band is lyrically based on Sanchez's original series, The Amory Wars.
With his primary band currently finishing up work on a new album, Sanchez has placed The Amory Wars aside for a new series, Kill Audio. Written in part as a reaction to the seriousness of The Amory Wars, Kill Audio has a comedic edge, following the adventures of a troll in a chaotic world.
We caught up with Sanchez at Comic-Con, where he was signing preview copies of the new comic as well as the series' related vinyl toys.
How many Comic-Cons have you done now?
I think six. We usually have our own booth, but this year we partnered with Boom! It's a bit more relaxed. Every year, we get here early to set up. This year, there was no set-up.
Have you always come here as part of Evil Ink or did you come here before that?
I've always come here as part of Evil Ink. I think maybe the first year I came as just a fan, I'm not sure. It's been so many years now that I always associate the brand with the convention.
