The Amory Wars Gains a New Artist
If you’ve been around here long enough, you should know about our man-love for everything Coheed and Cambria related. I’ve read every single issue of The Amory Wars comics that Boom Studios has put out, and even before they picked them up. I’m THAT big of a fan.
Well it seems that there’s some bittersweet news for the fans of this series. The artist that has brought the Keywork and Heaven’s Fence to life over the last couple of years, Chris Burnham, is moving on to work on a DC Batman series…all hope is not lost as Burnham has hand-picked his replacement at Evil Ink / Boom and the mystery artist is going to be Aaron Kuder starting with issue #8 of The Amory Wars: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3.
Kuder is a relative unknown in the mainstream comic world, but after spending a few minutes looking over his portfolio and history, I’m certain has the chops to become one of the next big things in the comics world.
You can read a full interview between him and the guys at Evil Ink, and here you can see some of his Amory Wars tributes that prove to me that he’s got what it takes to keep this amazing series going.
