First, let me get a couple things out of the way.
1) I’ve been a huge Coheed and Cambria fan for a little while now, and that’s the only reason I even know this exists.

2) I haven’t actually read any of Claudio’s Amory Wars stuff yet, so this is, for whatever reason, the very first thing I chose to read by him.

So, knowing only that Claudio was good at making great music and as yet unproven to me as being good at anything else, I had very low expectations going in, perhaps raised somewhat by the hi

This would do very, very well classified as bizarro fiction (if it weren't a graphic novel). It's weird as fuck and probably gory enough to gross some people out.

I won't do a synopsis because everyone's done it already and it's pretty straight forward--Kill Audio has to police the world of Sight & Sound to keep musical creativity under control. Bet you couldn't tell that by the name, huh!?

It's just all over the place in the best way. There's characters who really don't have any kind of use.

Kill Audio is a an ugly troll of a fellow who lives in the land of Sight and Sound, a place where creativity is all important but controlled like a commodity. Kill Audio is a Void, a creature made to take down creative musical elements before they get too crazy and powerful. With the help of his crew----a song-quoting skeleton, a jive-talking rooster and an animated pillow----KA uncovers a plot to take down the very fabric of society. Jammed-packed with references to music, art and literature t ...more

I'm sorry, but I just need to say it... what the hell was Claudio thinking?

I am a huge fan of Coheed and Cambria, as well as the Amory Wars. But this book is absolutely terrible. The script is incoherent and doesn't seem to make any sense. I have tried on multiple occasions to just power through this and not think about it, but all the characters are the same, and all the emotions are just flat. There doesn't seem to be really any storyline... just random characters cursing and doing cocaine. Th

I had high hopes based on the premise and a recommendation. The art is really cool, sort of surreal graffiti-style, and there are a few clever ideas (the "Kisses" that pump pop music into unwilling ears until people love it, the designs of the genres and sub-genres). But the characters are boring, the writing doesn't hang together, and the whole thing feels like a high person narrating his own masturbatory fever dream. This would work better as an annotated sketchbook than as a narrative. Anyone ...more

One of Sanchez's first writing attempts aside from the Coheed and Cambria saga. Creative but hard to follow so i couldn't give it a 5th star. Worth all the trouble to be able to dive into such an original story. Music fans will appreciate the references from all over the music realm and do check those out. They are listed at the back of each issue.

Kill Audio is the story of a short immortal man who's just trying to find his way in life. His story unfolds as his nemesis tries to kill his with a series of knife throwing knives. When this, of course, doesn't kill Kill Audio, Fixler tells him to find his purpose in life and maybe things will get better for him. This sends him on an entertaining journey that's unforgettable.
I don't like books that make no sense for the sake making no sense, have random crap for the sake of having random crap, characters that have cutout personalities, and don't go anywhere, . I'll probably write an actual review, but I just wanted to get my two cents in really quick.

This was a very strange story with very odd characters. I liked the originality of the story but felt at times the graphics were hard to interpret. Overall not bad but I didn't love this.

Funny, beautiful and just plain weird. Its visually stunning. While the humor may go over most peoples heads there's still a lot that can be found in this graphic novel.
