Media Release — BOOM! Studios is proud to announce today that KILL AUDIO #1 has sold out in only one week.
Fans should keep in mind, while Diamond Comic Distributors is completely sold out, first printings of KILL AUDIO #1 may still be found at a direct market retailer near you.
The second printing of KILL AUDIO #1 is available to order immediately through BOOM!’s new relationship with Haven Distributors, and will be available soon to order through Diamond Comic Distributors.
KILL AUDIO #1 second print features a black & white variant art of the A cover for issue one.
Claudio Sanchez, the celebrated creator of the COHEED AND CAMBRIA mythology, including the best selling sci-fi mini-series, THE AMORY WARS, has come back to comics with a vengence with KILL AUDIO! KILL AUDIO follows the adventures of an immortal little troll who struggles to find purpose in a land where creativity is a controlled substance. When musical creativity spirals into chaos, KILL AUDIO discovers his life mission. Supported by a wildly eccentric posse and a nemesis hell-bent on proving his mortality, KILL AUDIO takes on non-sensical musical sub-genres while traipsing across a vivid landscape, all of which could only come from the intense mind of Claudio Sanchez.
Hitting store shelves last week, KILL AUDIO #1 has garnered numerous accolades from critics across all spectrums:
“It’s kind of like WIZARD OF OZ if it were envisioned by Hunter S. Thompson. It’s Tom Waits singing an Enya song. It’s a Pollock painting if Pollock had twelve arms… you can’t just say this is a must read book. This is a must experience book.” – Aint It Cool News
“…the most bizarrely original comic I’ve ever read…” – Express Times
“KILL AUDIO is the perfect fix for anyone bored of more and the same at their shop. If you’re in need for a laugh and want to see how a story about music plays out in a silent medium, pick it up.” – Comics Bulletin
“I could see this becoming the kind of cult hit that, say, JOHNNY THE HOMICIDAL MANIAC was, and with much the same crowd.” – All About Comics
“KILL AUDIO comes across as a story that is meant for the comic book medium because of this. This title should be on the “try out” part of everyone’s Pull List moving forward.” – The FlickCast
“… a great mix of “street comics” and something like JOHNNY THE HOMICIDAL MANIAC…” – Undercover Fanboy
“Regardless of what KILL AUDIO might have to say, this is a delightfully surreal world we are reading about, and readers are helpless to do anything other than simply run with it.” – The Outhousers.com
“Art-wise… the book is a f***** masterpiece.” – iFanboy.com
“KILL AUDIO is a strange, strange book. It’s probably the single oddest thing I’ve been called upon to review in the four years I’ve written for IGN Comics. What else is to be expected from the mind of Claudio Sanchez?” – IGN.com
“if you are in the mood for a completely unique, somewhat violent and graphic, well drawn, trippy comic and love music, this might just be the title for you! – Omnicomic
“This is a disturbing work, and I mean that as a compliment. Anyone who’s a fan of THE MAXX or of ROBOT CHICKEN should check this out.” – Mark Waid (IRREDEEMABLE, KINGDOM COME, Editor-in-Chief BOOM STUDIOS)
“KILL AUDIO scratches just the right itch.” – Joe Casey (ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, IRON MAN: THE INEVITABLE)
This will scrape the dark matter out of the back of your brain and force feed it back to you.” –Richard Starkings (ELEPHANTMAN, founder of Comicraft)
“This is one of the freshest books I have read in years. Mr. Sheldon, his crew and this book are truly ROCK AND ROLL!” – Nathan Fox (PIGEONS FROM HELL, DMZ)
KILL AUDIO #1 features the first installment of the epic six issue mini-series “KILL AUDIO” adventure and is written by Chondra Echert and Claudio Sanchez, with mind-blowing interior art by Sheldon Vella. The first printing shipped with two covers in a 50/50 split and a third cover that was offered as a 1 in 10 incentive.
