THE AMORY WARS: FALL OF THE KEYWORK APP OUT NOW

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

Photos from NYCC 2012!

Hi everyone,

We are back from the flurry of events at New York Comic Con and still reeling from the number of you who came to support Evil Ink, as well as the new Coheed and Cambria album release, The Afterman.  It was our most successful signing weekend of any convention and we had an absolute blast!  If you couldn’t make it this year, hopefully we will be seeing you at another convention this year–so far we plan on having a presence at Chicago’s C2E2 in April and San Diego Comic Con this Summer–or a Coheed show where a lot of Evil Ink merchandise will be readily available.  In the meantime, you can see pics from the NYCC festivities at the following link, courtesy of Andy Menarchek.

Wahlberg and Leverage to Produce The Amory Wars

July 14, 2012–Kicking off two days of autograph signings at San Diego Comic-Con, Claudio Sanchez and Evil Ink Comics announced today that they have partnered with Stephen Levinson’s Leverage (Boardwalk Empire, Entourage, Contraband) and Mark Wahlberg to develop their graphic novel series The Amory Wars into a live-action feature film. The Amory Wars, a sci-fi saga published by Boom! Studios, recently reached #4 on the New York Times Bestseller List for graphic books.

Sanchez, the lead singer of progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria, originally created the story to serve as inspiration for the group’s albums. He later expanded the mythology to other mediums, including comic books and graphic novels. In 2010, Sanchez collaborated with luminary genre writer Peter David (The Incredible Hulk, Aquaman) to write a full-length prose novel, Year of the Black Rainbow, which told the origin story of the series, and was released with the band’s album of the same name.

The Amory Wars is an epic fantasy set in a futuristic alternate universe. The series chronicles the rise of superhuman dictator Wilhelm Ryan, and the one family that could hold the key to liberating the world from his tyrannical reign.

Coheed and Cambria are set to release a new studio album this fall. Their North American tour with Iron Maiden begins July 24th.

Sanchez will be signing the NY Times Best Seller at San Diego Comic Con International this weekend at 4pm on Saturday at the Evil Ink booth, #1031

More Key of Z #2 reviews!

Broken Frontier Logo

“…the book continues to deliver some intense character moments, especially with Ewing.  The aforementioned meeting turns out to be one of the most significant events in the entire series, and will certainly define Ewing from here on.” –Broken Frontier

Read full review HERE.

“Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert are definitely delivering something special here and I can’t wait to get my hands on issue 3 to see where the big build up is heading towards for the finale issue 4. I really think Boom Studios has something on their hands that is worth turning into an on going series.”–16 Bit Monster

FIVE STARS!

Read full review HERE.

“Armed with the harmonica his son gave him on the last Christmas anyone ever had (the significance of which is hinted at by the book’s title), Ewing is why you’ll stick with the story, and why I’m looking forward to Key of Z #3. I badly want to see him get what he’s after.”–Thick Online

“These 2 issues mark the halfway mark, but I’m already sold and I’m glad I let my curiosity get the better of me.” –Comic Book Jesus
