Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert appear at Midtown Comics Downtown on Wednesday April 23rd for a special signing for TRANSLUCID #1 starting at 6:30 pm!
Purchase of TRANSLUCID #1 is required to attend.
Limit of 2 items signed per customer.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert have given us such BOOM! Studios favorites as KILL AUDIO, THE AMORY WARS and KEY OF Z. Their latest book takes the superhero trope of ‘the never-ending battle’ and turns it into something you’ve never seen before.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: TRANSLUCID is the superhero story you want but never thought you’d see. A story of childhood hope and loss as much as it is about the meaning of heroism, and what defines a hero and a villain.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: The Horse has been the archenemy of The Navigator for years. But The Horse feels The Navigator’s moral compass has been slipping, and even a villain can’t let that happen. The Horse decides to get a closer look into The Navigator’s past that he’s buried deep in his subconsciousness and find out what drives a person to make the right choice, and what propels someone to make the selfish one. Thus begins an exploration of why a young man would take the mantle of a superhero.

Debuting this October From BOOM! Studios
Sanchez to Sign KILL AUDIO Preview Book at Comic-Con â€˜09 and KILL AUDIO Vinyl Figure
Friday and Saturday Only from 4pm – 5pm
Figure Only Available during Signing Times!
Comic-Con â€˜09 – BOOM! Studios / Booth #2543
July 13th, 2009 – Los Angeles -Claudio Sanchez, the celebrated creator of the COHEED AND CAMBRIA mythology, including the best selling sci-fi mini-series, THE AMORY WARS, is back with an entirely new concept! One of the most unique and powerful minds in rock and comics unleashes possibly the most provocative new comic of 2009: KILL AUDIO!
Shipping this October from BOOM! Studios, fans can get a first look at KILL AUDIO this July at Comic-Con International, when Claudio Sanchez signs the KILL AUDIO PREVIEW BOOK available only at the BOOM! Studios Booth #2543. In addition to the KILL AUDIO PREVIEW BOOK, fans will also get a chance to purchase the monotone variant of the KILL AUDIO VINYL FIGURE, limited to 1200 pieces. The KILL AUDIO VINYL FIGURE will only be available during signing times.
“This is disturbing work, and I mean that as a compliment,” BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Mark Waid said. “Anyone who’s a fan of THE MAXX or of Robot Chicken should check this out.”
KILL AUDIO follows the adventures of an immortal little troll who struggles to find purpose in a land where creativity is a controlled substance. When musical creativity spirals into chaos, KILL AUDIO discovers his life mission.
Supported by a wildly eccentric posse and a nemesis hell-bent on proving his mortality, KILL AUDIO takes on non-sensical musical sub-genres while traipsing across a vivid landscape, all of which could only come from the intense mind of Claudio Sanchez.
The KILL AUDIO PREVIEW BOOK and the KILL AUDIO VINYL FIGURE* will be available at the BOOM! Studios booth (#2543) with Claudio signing on Friday and Saturday from 4pm – 5pm.
Written by Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert, KILL AUDIO features mind-melting art by Harvey Nominated Mr. Sheldon with covers by Mr. Sheldon and Kristian Donaldson of DMZ fame. The KILL AUDIO PREVIEW BOOK will sell for $5 while the limited edition monotone variant KILL AUDIO VINYL FIGURE will sell for $40.
*Please note the Vinyl Figure will only be available during signing times.
