I love Coheed and Cambria,

Now that I have got that out of the way you can probably tell that this isn't going to be an unbiased post about the Amory Wars comic.

What I will say is that I have enjoyed the two previous runs of the comic (named after the corresponding albums) but this newest run is shaping up to be the best so far, the plot seems to be more cohesive and Claudio seems to really have got his writing head on, more so than the previous outings and probably helped by the fact that he just wrote a novel (Year of the Black Rainbow which accompanies the newest album). The art has always been a little lacking for me, I mean its great art but something just doesn't grab me about it and that is a personal thing but the detail in this issue is fantastic and really adds depth to the story.

I saw someone post somewhere that there wasn't enough background to the Amory Wars universe well this latest run really discounts that theory as there is loads of background stuff going on just look at those fish on the front cover below, it really helps flesh out the universe.. love it!

It's not too late to get in on the fun as the first two arcs have just been released as a master edition so pick it up if your interested you shouldn't be disappointed, I'd get it myself but I already have the issues (signed :D )
