Kill Audio Vinyl Figure by Claudio Sanchez Signing at Houston’s Domy Books

This Thursday, February 26th Houston’s own Domy Books is holding a signing with Claudio Sanchez, the lead singer of Coheed and Cambria, for his new vinyl figure the Kill Audio Bloody Edition. Coheed and Cambria is a very unique band in that their albums chronicle the storyline of the band’s comic books series The Amory Wars written by Sanchez and published by Evil Ink Comics. It’s pretty cool to see artists care passionately about two different mediums and tie them together so effortlessly.

Kill Audio Vinyl Figures Claudio Sanchez - Bloody, Black and White & Gold Editions
Kill Audio, a vinyl figure and comic book series, is Sanchez’ latest project. It is the tale of an immortal little man, seeking out his purpose in life by traipsing across a hip musical landscape with his wildly eccentric sarcastic posse. The story is written by Claudio Sanchez with art by Sheldon Vella. The Kill Audio vinyl figure is very cool, although maybe a little too bloody for my tastes. I love the fact that the knives embedded in his body are removable, now those are some killer accessories!

It looks like Sanchez is scheduling signings to coincide with his band’s tour dates, so if Coheed and Cambria is coming to your town there is a better than good chance there will be a Sanchez signing somewhere in your city (click here to check). Sadly, it looks like this is another exciting event in Houston that The Blot won’t be able to attend since it is taking place from 3-4:30 pm on a work day. We’ll see though, stranger things have happened. I'll try to work my magic and sneak over to Domy Books for some pics.

The Kill Audio Bloody Edition is currently available in stores worldwide, while the Black and White (non-bloody) Online Exclusive vinyl figure is limited to 1200 pieces and is available directly from here for $40. There is also a long sold out 2008 SDCC Gold Exclusive Kill Audio figure limited to 60 pieces and a Gunmetal Edition Kill Audio figure limited to 100 pieces that was only available at Coheed and Cambria concerts.
