Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez (Translucid) and Chondra Echert team up with best-selling artist Rags Morales (Identity Crisis, Action Comics) for the long-awaited third installment (but fourth story) of The New York Times best-selling series, The Amory Wars! The evil Wilhelm Ryan remains in power. All those around Claudio Kilgannon are now convinced he is The Crowing, but is he? Ambellina believes she and The Crowing can save Heaven's Fence rather than destroying it. But with Ryan and a new, even bigger threat looming-can they succeed?

    It feels classic while still feeling fresh, which could not have been an easy job for this incredible team. Read Full Review

    The art is extremely detailed and realistic. It manages to capture a decent balance between what is real and what is fiction. At the same time, the two worlds collide and often intertwine in a spectacular way. That helps ensure that no two scenes are alike in the process. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Apr 21, 2017

    Chondra Echert's writing is the real star of the issue, with remarkably clever transitions between story threads and a recurring motif of divinity through dialogue, as well as the aforementioned strong characterization. Read Full Review

    I was somewhat confused, jumping in with no previous knowledge, but enjoyed it enough to want to return. An epic saga that crosses worlds, inhabited by conflicted protagonists. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Apr 6, 2017

    This is the first issue, so it's expected to have quite a bit of exposition. Luckily, the creative team is able to deliver a truly immersive comic. It may be difficult to grasp the mythos surrounding the plot, but it's easy to fall down the rabbit hole. Fans will be pleased, just be aware there really isn't any action in this particular book. Newcomers, check out the past three series (it may be hard to find the first two) and catch up. Amory Wars is back and ready to ignite its readers. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jason Segarra Apr 7, 2017

    This is an involved read that not everyone is going to get. It's not unlike the band itself: complex and with flashes of brilliance, but only for hardcore fans of its particular genre. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Brian Belanger Apr 8, 2017

    This was definitely one of those instances where coming into a third installment just doesn't work. It's pretty evident that a lot of stuff has already been established that was lost on me. I'm sure this a good continuation for familiar readers, but new folks would do well to pass. Read Full Review
