Most everyone in the geek world knows that New York Comic-Con is going on this weekend and it just so happens that one of my favorite comic book companies, Evil Ink!, is here to sell merch and sling comics!
Luckily, I got a chance to catch up with Claudio Sanchez (of Coheed and Cambria) and Chondra Echert on their upcoming book Key of Z on the convention floor at Booth 1345 about the new comic, what they’re looking forward to seeing at the convention, and what they’ve got coming up. You can watch my video interview here below. Now, the audio quality on the video is a little off, so before you take to the comments section to tell me that I should have been looking at the camera or using a mic, I totally agree with you. My bad, it will never happen again.
So, to save you the ear strain, I wanted to tell you about some of the high points from the interview, and they are listed here below.

Kill Audio, an invincible man lost in his world of Sight and Sound finally finds purpose and destiny as protector of all music. But what does this destiny mean? What must he do to keep all genres and sub genres in line? All of the things come to light in Kill Audio #6.
What more can be said about the fantastic world that Sheldon Vella brings to life with his art? I have read nothing but praise for his outlandish groundbreaking style that he first developed in the Zuda series Supertron. While incorporating an amount of crass imagery and an over-the-top style, Mr. Sheldon’s work is nothing less than stunning. That being said, it doesn’t take away from Sanchez and Echert’s writing in the least. In fact, Sheldon’s art brings their story to a living and breathing entity that immerses you into their world.
But don’t let the art fool you, the writing is stellar, as well. Over the past 5 issues, the story definitely has its highs and lows, but Sanchez and Echert really do a fantastic job of wrapping up the series in a fitting way that in no way feels unnatural to the rest of the story.

Meet Kill Audio (KA), an angry dwarf who can’t die. He’s on a mission, a mission to find his purpose in life. Along the way he will meet up with a coke-addicted chicken, a skeleton in a beaver suit, and a talking pillow, and we must not forget Fix, a creature whose job it is to kill KA.
KA is trying to reach the Watchtower so that he can talk to Clockwork, the creator of all sight and sound. He will have to pass through the gates of Hell itself, navigate his way through the middle of a marital spat, and survive a confrontation with a drunken dog toy in order to reach his destination.
When KA finally reaches the Watchtower he learns from Clockwork that his purpose is to maintain the balance between Life and Creativity in the land of Sight and Sound and that when KA was taken from the Void, Music was thrown into absolute chaos.
