I'm no expert in reading graphic novels. Upon completion, I can now bring my total up to three: Watchmen, Second Stage Turbine Blade, and now this.

I'll be the first to admit that my love for the band may be influencing my opinion of this graphic novel. I like to think I can be unbiased enough to recognize virtue when it's present regardless of my feelings on other aspects. For example. I can tell you I hated the last Harry Potter movie, but the last Harry Potter book is my absolute favorite in

Recommends it for: Die-hard Coheed and Cambria fans
They finally got it right. This is Sanchez telling "the story" right and in the right way. It was absolutely absorbing from start to finish. It was well-paced, well-structured, and leaps and bounds above and beyond The Second Stage Turbine Blade. It feels like Sanchez finally worked out all the kinks from the beginnings of his story and wrote the album lyrics with this graphic novel in mind, so the story was allowed to unravel in a proper, smooth fashion.

The lyrics are in there, sometimes spoken

I liked this one more than The Second Stage Turbine Blade.

The art was detailed and oddly beautiful in moments of extreme violence. The transition between artists was smooth and almost unnoticeable.

The influence of other prominent works of science fiction are still present, but In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 branches out and becomes its own story, something its predecessor didn't do quite as well. Still, there were moments and scenes referenced in the music and by Claudio Sanchez over the

Ive been reading the armory comic for i believe 5 years.
Id have to say. this only fueled my obsession with Coheed and Cambria.
and when the comics came out each month I was there at my local comic store to pick them up.

I currently have all the armory comics. 9 signed by claudio , the band, and witers/artist.

if you rare looking for a in your face take on star wars i highly recommend this series. also
lots of cliffhangers and twist.

A continuation of the plot line from Second Stage Turbine - this storyline is more cohesive and well-put-together. Amazing character development for Claudio and Inferno. Can't wait to read the next album!

I enjoyed this comic so much more than SSTB. I felt like it made more sense and was better realized, with better character development and a better pace overall. I'm definitely a fan of Claudio's story–telling and I'm looking forward to more!

Much, much better than Second Stage Turbine Blade, if only because Burnham's art makes the whole thing sing, and the downer ending is just great. I'd like a little more character work, It's that or more space action, and, in this case, I'm voting for space action.

better than the first, but the comics still lack a certain depthness that the music has.

I've been a casual Coheed fan since the album "In Keeping Secrets..." (IKS) was released in 2004. Not being someone who frequents comic shops, I haven't made much effort to collect the comic series based on the band's storyline that has been released in fits and starts over the last several years. I've read enough (primarily the first volume of "Second Stage Turbine Blade") to know the basics of the story and understand the quasi-tenuous relationship the comics' story have to their respective al ...more

4.5 Stars

This is such an improvement over Second Stage Turbine Blade. Every single element is better - the art is great, the story actually makes sense, and the characters are given a chance to develop. Even the way the song lyrics translated to the story is executed better than in SSTB, where every song reference was either clunky, cheesy, or both.

The only thing keeping me from giving this a full five stars is the fact that In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 is my favorite Coheed & Camb

This continues the story of The Amory Wars where The Second Stage Turbine Blade left off. I feel Sanchez has really come into his own in regards to the storytelling, especially dialogue and narration. The awkward lines that were in the previous volume to include lyrics from the music this is adapted from are absent, and as a result, this entire book flows wonderfully. The pacing is fantastic, and the perspective/scene transitions are seamless. The art is as good as ever, including some interesti ...more

I am a new fan of Coheed and Cambria and I am very interested in how all of their music albums connect and I want to learn more about the mythology of their growing world. I am definitely not a hardcore fan, but I really enjoyed the Afterman albums. This book is a lot better then the Second Stage Turbine story, I felt like the plot was much more focused in this collection. I really enjoyed Coheed And Cambria's son, I thought his powers and abilities were really cool. I am curious to see how the ...more

If you're a fan of Coheed and Cambria's music, this is for you. Read it and love it. If you aren't familiar with the science fiction progressive rock concept opera that they have been writing and recording for over a decade, go listen to it.

This chronicles the events depicted in their second album, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3. This happens to be my favorite album of theirs, and the comic adaptation mostly lives up to what was written and recorded. There are some lyrics that I wanted to

Another great adaptation and continuation of the story. Listening to the cds help you get an idea of where the story is going but actually getting to read and see it definitely gives you a clearer picture. It's nice to see the lyrics pop up through out the story too, though I do end up getting distracted because I start singing the songs. I'm seriously looking forward to the next one since it will be the start of my favorite cd.

AMAZING! I'm not much of a comic book/graphic novel person but after this I may try. I started reading these to better understand the lyrics. I found myself so engrosses in the story it took me 3 days to read SSTB KSSE GA4 and the bag on line adventures books. And the fangirl gasms when I recognize something in the songs were great. I read these with myn husband and he also squealed. off to read YOTBR and after man now! I can't wait to see the movie either!

I'm not going to lie, these are the first graphic novels I've ever read, so I don't have much to compare them to. That being said, I really enjoyed them and just wish the rest of the Amory Wars books weren't so hard to find.
