Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Prog-rocker Sanchez (lead singer for Coheed and Cambria), this time writing with fiancée Echert, ventures into the world of comics with this vivid but often baffling action story of a troll-like immortal, Kill Audio, in a surrealistic world of music and art. At first he's motivated by a desire to learn why he and his siblings were created. Later it's to carry out his intended purpose: to limit and control excessive creativity. Kill Audio and his energetic gang of grotesques, from a beaver-suit wearing skeleton to a sex-obsessed giant chicken, find themselves opposed by a vast conspiracy whose mastermind is closer to Kill than anyone suspects. Mr. Sheldon's art is crowded and repellent, perhaps too closely reflecting the violent and chaotic world it illustrates. Sanchez and Echert tell their story with considerable energy but a similar lack of clarity; the result is a tale told passionately but in a private language, with fervor but no depth. (Aug.) (c)

In the eternal words of Meatloaf, 'I don't know what it is, but..'.

When trying to come up with the best description I possibly can for Kill Audio, I want to make references to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Metalocalypse and American Gods: A Novel somehow all having a baby together, but that wouldn't quite sum it up. It's one demented and hilarious riot of a fantasy. There's a lot going on, and the drugged-out but totally amazing artwork really helps you slip into that comic-induced euphoric state we fanboy/junkies love. It's an epically rad story, and I'm definitely stoked on the hardcover edition.

Seriously though, Mr. Sheldon's artwork is pretty sweet. The closest comparison I can think of for the art is Rob Guillory's work in CHEW and Gabriel Ba's in The Umbrella Academy. Sheldon uses a streamlined animated style with a black, white & red color palette - also gray, if black doesn't already imply that. I love the imagery; it's as otherworldly as it is rock-n-roll.

The book itself deserves accolades even if it were for the worst comic series ever. The dust-jacket is gorgeous, and exceptionally thick and durable. I doubt you'll find many other graphic novels with as glossy and/or as high-quality of paper as Kill Audio.

I am a huge fan of Coheed and Cambria. I purchased this to see what Claudio could do outside of the Keywork universe. It's great. The characters are pretty funny and the artistic stylings are very entertaining. I'm planning on picking up the new one eventually.

Hard to read and grasp at time. But if you obtain a knowledge and love for music as well as for Claudio you'll have no problem blazing through this collection of the kill audio series.

Really enjoying reading this, but it's a little out there! Probably have to get a little more into it before I really start digging it!
