The story contained in these comics goes along with the music written and performed by the band Coheed & Cambria. If you love their music and always wanted to know more of the actual story behind the music, this is for you. This edition contains the entire "In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3" comic books, with additional sketches and a cover gallery. A great item if you weren't able to purchase the comics separately, or if you're just a die hard collector who "must have" an Ultimate Edition like this. Will Claudio rise to become the Crowing, or will the evil tri-mage Ryan remain unchallenged?

So over the past eight months or so I've really gotten into the music of Coheed and Cambria. I've been aware of them for quite a while but just started listening recently. The first album I got was (at the time) their newest, The Afterman: Ascension. I was surprised at how much I loved it, from start to finish, awesome. So, I quickly started getting into all of the back catalog and, WOW, more of the same awesome. It's been a long time since I've found a band that I like this much.

Now for the books. I knew about The Amory Wars and figured I should check that out too. I thought the idea of seeing the music come to life would be a lot of fun. It was! I only wish I would have ordered these sooner. (I ordered both the ultimate editions, second stage and keeping secrets) I flew through both of them pretty fast. I'm going to read them again just to make sure I've absorbed everything. "Second Stage" did feel a bit cumbersome at times. I'm sure it was hard for Claudio to cram as much of his story into this format as he would have liked. Still, very fun to read and very entertaining. "In Keeping Secrets" was a bit more fluid and well composed. Like any good story that hasn't quite ended yet, it left me wanting more.
Absolutely a must for any Coheed and Cambria fan or any fan of good vs evil sci-fi type stories. Worth every penny of the already reasonable price and more. The extras at the end of each book are a nice bonus too. (especially in "second stage" with the reprints of the original releases)
If you're like I was, on the fence about ordering these, do this: 1) add to cart, 2) proceed to checkout, 3) click on "complete order"
You won't regret it!

If you are an Evil Ink or Coheed and Cambria fan you will very much enjoy this well written piece to the puzzle that is the story of heavens fence, and its inhabitants. Exciting, with amazing illustration to match.

Long time Coheed fan. I love seeing the story come to life, and wanted to pick up the comics for some time. This is the perfect way to catch up.

I'm a big Coheed fan. and a comic fan, and I love this! My one complaint is that I feel that the art doesn't convey the grit of the story as well as it could, but otherwise I think it's great. It's a huge improvement from the SSTB one, which, even though I enjoyed it, felt a bit too rushed to do the concept justice. Same complaint with the art too. But overall, I think this well written and well put together!

While not all of the artwork is to my liking, it's the rich and vivid story that keeps me coming back for more. 5 Stars every time.

This book is very well done! It easy to follow rather or not you've read SSTB and keeps you hook every single chapter! :) if you love Coheed and Cambria you'll be so happy to read this book as it gives the songs off of their record (in keeping secrets Album) a whole different meaning. Amazon was pretty quick in delivering as the date of delivery was tues but I recieved it on mon (order on friday). Pick up this book and you won't want to put it down!
