MY BROTHER’S BLOOD MACHINE ISSUE 2 NOW IN STORES
SERIES INSPIRED BY CLAUDIO SANCHEZ’ SOLO MUSIC PROJECT PRIZE FIGHTER INFERNO, CO-WRITTEN WITH STEVE NILES
The Amory Wars creator and Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez launched his new horror comic, “My Brother’s Blood Machine,” a six-issue mini-series loosely based on the debut album from his solo music project, The Prize Fighter Inferno. On “…Blood Machine,” Sanchez teams up with prolific horror author Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, October Faction) and artist Andrew Ritchie (Cthulhu Tales, Necronomicon).
AIPT Comics ran the exclusive preview of issue 2 earlier this week, following an interview with Claudio hosted last month.
Issue 2 of the New York Times Best Sellers latest tale is available in local comic shops tomorrow, January 18th, and is the first title to be released exclusively through Sanchez’ own comic brand, Evil Ink, distributed through Diamond.
From the Diamond listing: “Unbeknownst to the town, the bodies are piling up in Margretville. As the locals waste their time scrutinizing Gunner Recall, Cecilia faces a choice: Endure hell at home, or leave her brothers behind to escape with her boyfriend, Glen. The Anderback Woods, and its mysterious suburban legends, await to reveal an unholy truth.”
Sanchez is no stranger to making readers uncomfortable (see: The Amory Wars, Key of Z), and “Blood Machine” takes it up a notch. Deadly, bizarre and beautiful, quirky and horrifying. Prepare yourself for a wild and bloody ride.
He didn’t do it alone. Co-writer Steve Niles has been crafting nightmares for comics, TV and the Silver Screen for two decades… Throw in the perfectly abstract style of artist Andrew Ritchie and grind it all up into My Brother’s Blood Machine.
