Coheed and Comics
"I really wanted the strip to be a fun read," admitted Sanchez, "so I decided to tie some elements of music and pop culture into a more satirical story than I've done in the past."
KILL AUDIO is a dark, comedic tale of a man growing annoyed with his own immortality. Along with a long list of eccentric companions and a bumbling, yet tenacious villain at his heels, he embarks on a quest to find his purpose in life.
Sanchez also announced that he will introduce a limited edition, 7" vinyl toy of KILL AUDIO at this year's San Diego Comic Con, July 24-27. It will then find its way into vinyl toyshops across the nation.
"The idea for the doll actually came first. I wanted to do a 'likeness doll', but not just a doll with a guitar in his hand. It had to have more personality and stand alone as a vinyl figure," Sanchez continued. "I played around with the name Kill Audio and ended up with a character who's not only being constantly killed himself, but later in the story finds hidden meaning in his namesake. The whole idea just snowballed from there. I couldn't be happier with the way it came together."
Also, today, MYSPACE will be premiering the video Coheed made themselves for the song "Gravemakers and Gunslingers," off their current record, No World for Tomorrow (Columbia).
At the end of July, Coheed and Cambria will launch a two-week tour with Secret Machines and Russian Circles. Starting July 27 in San Diego, the tour mainly focuses in the south, ending August 9 in North Myrtle Beach.
