Translucid TPB Coming In April!

Translucid Trade Paperback

Mark your calendars! Translucid Trade Paperback hits stores this April.

Discover the tortured psyche of a superhero in Translucid, a story from Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez and co-creator Chondra Echert, the writers behind The Amory Wars saga, Key of Z, and Kill Audio. The psychedelic superhero mindscape is brought to vivid life by artist Daniel Bayliss and colorist Adam Metcalfe. We call The Navigator a hero. We call The Horse a villain. The two have been locked in a battle for years, fighting for the soul of New York City. But are they just two sides of the same playing card? Translucid is a startling deconstruction of the classic bond between a hero and his villain, and shows what it takes to push a person to take up either mantle. Translucid TP collects the entire miniseries, issues #1-6.

Price: $19.99

Diamond Order Code: FEB151126

Evil Ink Records Launches, Signs Thank You Scientist and Remasters Maps Album for Re-release

Pre-order Maps of Non-Existent Places Today!Our very own Claudio Sanchez has officially launched his record label Evil Ink Records and his first signing is New Jersey’s young experimental progressive rock septet Thank You Scientist. Our newly formed label, distributed by INgrooves, will be releasing a fully remixed and remastered version of the band’s 2012 debut full-length record, Maps of Non-Existent Places, on September 30th, in time for their run with Coheed and Cambria’s “Neverender:IKSSE3 Tour.”

In anticipation for the upcoming release, Thank You Scientist has premiered “My Famed Disappearing Act” today on SoundCloud.

Maps of Non-Existent Places will be released digitally, Digipak CD and for the first time on vinyl. The double LP, available on both blue and black 180 gram vinyl, can be pre-ordered now here.

Claudio Sanchez knows a little bit about progressive music. His career has spanned 12 years and 7 albums, likely encompassing the longest concept album arc in the history of rock and roll. Now, in effort to further support and promote his beloved complex genre, he has launched a label dedicated to sharing a wealth of future talent with the first signing being the extremely talented seven-piece band Thank You Scientist.

For the uninitiated, Thank You Scientist was forged from the music program at Montclair State University in New Jersey when guitarist Tom Monda met saxophonist Ellis Jasenovic and trumpeter Andrew Digrius. The three bonded over their love for Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Beatles and Harry Nilsson. Those influences would become the seeds for what Thank You Scientist would evolve into today.

With the addition of vocalist Salvatore Marrano, bassist Greg Colacino, drummer Odin Alvarez and violinist Ben Karas, Thank You Scientist’s lineup of virtuoso musicians was complete. The band would go on to self-release an EP, The Perils of Time Travel, in 2011 followed by their debut full-length, Maps of Non-Existent Places, in 2012, which caught the ear of Sanchez, a fellow purveyor of progressive stylings, and led to his signing of the band.

To pinpoint Thank You Scientist’s sound would be inconceivable. On Maps of Non-Existent Places they hold a virtual master class on musicianship, fusing elements of progressive rock with jazz fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic and pop for a head spinning, mind-blowing listening experience. The seven-piece band, who collectively play some 20 instruments, boasts a hyper-composed sound which is indebted to their experience and formal training in both classical and jazz idioms.

A Frank Zappa for the indie generation? Incubus jamming with the Mahavishnu Orchestra? Mr. Bungle and Steely Dan joining forces to fight Godzilla? King Crimson and the Brecker Brothers serenading you at your bedside? It all seems so strange on paper, yet it’s sure to satisfy your ears in the best of ways.

Fans can expect a new studio album in 2015. Follow the band now at for additional news and updates.

Translucid #2 gets “Best Comic Book Covers Ever (This Month)” for May

Two guys fighting. What could be a more pedestrian concept for a comic book cover? (Well, five or six or seven guys just standing there; but I digress.) All praise to Jeff Stokely, then, for putting a new spin on the idea through both the color and composition of this playing card-inspired cover. – Comics Alliance




Translucid Issue Two In Stores Today. 4/5 on CBR.


Translucid #2 CBR Kid

This issue goes farther down the rabbit hole, straight into The Navigator’s dark past. What happened to a young dreamer that made him the hero he is now? No one is more curious than his arch-nemesis, The Horse.

Missed issue 1? Not to worry. Here’s what CBR had to say about issue 2:

 “Translucid” #2 is a remarkably gripping issue, even for those who might have missed #1″ – CBR

WonderCon 2014: Interview with ComicVine

We had the pleasure of catching up with ComicVine this past weekend at WonderCon. We talk Translucid #1 and tease a bit of issue two as well! Check out more here.




Translucid #1 In Stores Now. Perfect 10 Reviews from All-Comic and Comic Vine.

All-Comic Logo

It’s been a long wait, but the day is finally here: our new series Translucid is officially here and issue one is in stores now! If you missed out on having your comic book shop order you a copy, give them Diamond Code FEB141037 to place their order.

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. 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.

So far, issue one is getting rave reviews, including perfect 10 scores from All-Comic and Comic Vine!

“If Translucid isn’t on your pull-list or even on your radar you may want to do yourself a favor and pick up this debut issue, because it’s going to be one of those series that everyone is will be talking about.” – All-Comic

“It’s giving me a great deal to think about vis-a-vis how heroes and villains engage with each other in our beloved sequential medium, and the spotlight on “the neverending battle” makes for a brilliant discussion topic (make your friends read this book!) and a dramatic tango of a script. Vibrant colors and dynamic panels make for a visually-enticing book, and I’m already caught up in the chess match between The Horse and The Navigator.” – Comic Vine

We hope you enjoy the new series and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming Con appearances this year! Thanks for all your support!

The Amory Wars: Fall of the Keywork is a fighting game, developed by Sanchez’s Evil Ink Comics, in conjunction with Southern California’s Man Vs. Games, that allows fans to travel around “the Keywork” to fight as and against 10 of the most popular characters in the “The Amory Wars” mythos, including Coheed Kilgannon, Wilhelm Ryan and Al the Killer.  Players will face-off in a variety of battlegrounds including beloved and never-before-seen storied locales Apity Prime, the Faint of Hearts bar, and Hohenberger’s Lab. The game also features a new mechanic for fighting games, The Swipe Button. The new, high-tech feature will allow players to focus on execution and timing by moving the button in one of four directions. Players can now throw away the old, often frustrating combo memorization mechanics for this new mobile platform. Watch the trailer HERE.

The game is available for iPhone and iPad from the App Store
