The Amory Wars
The Amory Wars titled The Bag. On. Line Adventures, is an ongoing series of comic books written by Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez and published by Evil Ink Comics; the story of The Amory Wars is the focus of the band's music. Each studio album released by the band tells a chapter in the science fiction saga narrated by Sanchez's lyrics. Many individual songs on these albums use a particular song structure known as "terminally climactic form" in order to depict a violent action from the comic books once in a pivotal moment only heard at the song's ending; the albums, in chronological order, are The Afterman: Ascension, The Afterman: Descension, Year of the Black Rainbow, The Second Stage Turbine Blade, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3, Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness, Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow, Vaxis – Act I: The Unheavenly Creatures. The Amory Wars is set in Heaven's Fence, a collection of 78 planets held in place by interconnecting beams of energy, known as the Keywork.
The first half of the story narrates Coheed Kilgannon and Cambria Kilgannon's struggle against Wilhelm Ryan, the Supreme Tri-Mage. The second half of the story focuses on the heroic journey of their son, messianic Claudio Kilgannon. Over the course of the story, Claudio assumes the mantle of The Crowing, foretold savior of Heaven's Fence. In the end, he will face the Archmage, absolute ruler of Heaven's Fence and the one responsible for the death of Claudio's family; the original installments published were The Second Stage Turbine Blade, which has two issues illustrated by artist Wes Abbot and tells the first third of Chapter 2, the graphic novel Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through The Eyes Of Madness illustrated by Christopher Shy, which tells the story of the first volume of Chapter 4. The first issue of The Second Stage Turbine Blade is now out of print, the second is in limited supply; the Good Apollo graphic novel are limited as well. The Amory Wars Sketchbook, an intro piece, has been sold in limited release.
During an interview, Claudio explained that the whole series would be re-done chronologically and renamed The Amory Wars. Gus Vazquez, the illustrator of the Amory Wars Sketchbook, would illustrate the series. By the third issue of new Second Stage comic Chris Miller took over the illustration job from Gus Vasquez. Miller's style is close to Vasquez's artistic style and let the transition move smoothly. Claudio said that the band did not have the money or "pull" to either get the Second Stage Turbine Blade completed, release Good Apollo in completion, or release anything for In Keeping Secrets. Now that the band has the ability to release the comics properly, they have started from scratch; the first of ten comics make up the Second Stage Turbine Blade piece, released on June 13, 2007. Beyond the two comic books released for The Second Stage Turbine Blade, the graphic novel for Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness and a brief synopsis on the website for Evil Ink Comics, Sanchez has not confirmed many details about the story.
With the release of Year of the Black Rainbow, a novel was put out coinciding with the album. A comic series based on the story of In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 has begun; the original name of the story was The Bag. On. Line Adventures of Coheed and Cambria; this would be the name of the first chapter of their story and the respective album. The Bag. On. Line Adventures would work as a prequel and would follow the story of Coheed and Jesse as part of an anti-terrorist agency called the K. B. I. which stood for the Knowledge, the Beast, the Inferno. The name "Bag. On. Line" came from a shop across from Claudio Sanchez's apartment during the trip to Paris in which he first conceptualized the Coheed and Cambria saga. Since Coheed & Cambria have released the prequel to Second Stage Turbine Blade, titled Year of the Black Rainbow. After Sanchez changed the name to The Amory Wars, he released a sketchbook, illustrated by Gus Vasquez, which plots out the next comic. Dubbed Comic Zero, The Amory Wars Sketchbook was released at ComicCon.
The Evil Ink website began selling the sketchbook in limited release. This comic explains the beginning of the Keywork and Heaven's Fence. Years pass and the comic ends introducing Coheed Kilgannon on his home planet of Hetricus. First released in the summer of 2004, the original two comic books narrate the events of the first third of Coheed and Cambria's concept album The Second Stage Turbine Blade of 2002, they introduce central characters, including the villains Wilhelm Ryan and Mayo Deftinwolf who orchestrate a sinister plot to murder the children of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon in order to use the dormant Monstar virus hidden within Coheed to destroy the Keywork. Claudio Kilgannon escapes murder at the hands of hi
Ghost Rider is the name of many antiheroes appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Marvel had used the name for a Western character whose name was changed to Phantom Rider; the first supernatural Ghost Rider is stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze, who, in order to save the life of his father, agreed to give his soul to "Satan". At night and when around evil, Blaze finds his flesh consumed by hellfire, causing his head to become a flaming skull, he rides a fiery motorcycle and wields blasts of hellfire from his body from his skeletal hands. He learns he has been bonded with the demon Zarathos. Blaze was featured in the Ghost Rider series from 1972 to 1983; the subsequent Ghost Rider series featured Danny Ketch as a new Ghost Rider. After his sister was injured by ninja gangsters, Ketch came in contact with a motorcycle that had somehow been mystically enchanted to contain the essence of a Spirit of Vengeance. Blaze reappeared in this 1990s series as a supporting character, it was revealed that Danny and his sister were Johnny Blaze's long lost siblings.
In 2000s comics, Blaze again became the Ghost Rider. In 2013, Robbie Reyes became Ghost Rider as part of the Marvel NOW! initiative. Nicolas Cage starred as the Johnny Blaze iteration of the character in the 2007 film Ghost Rider and its 2012 sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Gabriel Luna plays Robbie Reyes in the television series Agents of S. H. I. E. L. D. Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Following the western comics character who used the name, the first superhero Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze, debuted in Marvel Spotlight #5, created by Marvel editor-in-chief Roy Thomas, writer Gary Friedrich and artist Mike Ploog, he received his own series in 1973, with penciller Jim Mooney handling most of the first nine issues. Several different creative teams mixed-and-matched until penciller Don Perlin began a long stint with issue #26 joined by writer Michael Fleisher through issue #58; the series ran through issue #81. Blaze returned as Ghost Rider in a 2001 six-issue miniseries written by Devin Grayson.
Johnny Blaze was the son of Barton Blaze, Naomi being the previous Ghost Rider. Noble Kale was the original Ghost Rider, from the 18th century, he became the Ghost Rider in order to defend his hometown from the Furies, but killed himself when his son was offered to him as a sacrifice. The next Ghost Rider, a young man named Daniel "Danny" Ketch, debuted in Ghost Rider vol. 3, #1. This Ghost Rider was nearly identical to the previous, although his costume was now a black leather biker jacket with spiked shoulder-pads, grey leather pants, a mystic chain he wore across his chest, which responded to his mental commands and served as his primary melee weapon, his new motorcycle resembled a futuristic machine and the front of it could lower to serve as a battering ram. Like the original Ghost Rider's bike, the wheels were composed of mystic hellfire. Unlike the relationship between the previous Ghost Rider and the demon with which he was bonded and his demon—who in vol. 2, #91 is revealed to be Marvel's incarnation of the Angel of Death/Judgment—are cooperative with each other.
At the close of the series with vol. 2, #93, Ketch died. The following year, Peter Parker: Spider-Man #93 revealed Ketch was still alive. Nearly a decade Marvel published the long-completed final issue as Ghost Rider Finale, which reprints the last issue and the unpublished #94. During the 2011 storyline "Fear Itself", a Nicaraguan woman named Alejandra Jones becomes Ghost Rider through a ritual performed by a man named Adam. Though she demonstrates many unknown powers of the Ghost Rider entity, she is deprived of its full power when Johnny Blaze takes back most of this power. In 2013, a new character took on the Ghost Rider mantle: a Mexican-American resident of East Los Angeles named Roberto "Robbie" Reyes, who drives a black classic muscle car reminiscent of a modified 1969 Dodge Charger rather than a motorcycle. Robbie Reyes was designed by Smith and artist Tradd Moore. Due to the Celestial Progenitor presence influencing human evolution, in 1,000,000 B. C. certain humans became much more intelligent than others as well as able to speak a new language.
However, they had to hide that gift from their brethren for fear of being ostracized. One day, a boy, gifted with the ability to speak is approached by a mysterious stranger that possessed that gift, only to witness the stranger transform into a beast and devour his entire tribe; the stranger allowed the boy to live and names him "Ghost" before telling him to challenge him when he is worthy. The boy was forced to survive on his own. After dying in the harsh environment, he is approached by Mephisto in the form of a snake, who tells him to say its name. Ghost is bonded with a Spirit of Vengeance. Other humans had never seen someone ride an animal before and began referring to Ghost as "The Rider"; the Rider continued his search and five years eventually caught up with the man who devoured his tribe. The man transformed once more. During the fight, the Rider took the bones of the dead that Wendigo had killed and used them to form a weapon.

Robert Bartleh Cummings was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts on January 12, 1965, he is the oldest son of Louise Cummings. His younger brother, Michael David Cummings, is the lead singer of the band Powerman 5000. Growing up, Cummings had a fascination with horror films and has stated that he always "wanted to be Alice Cooper, Steven Spielberg, Bela Lugosi and Stan Lee." His parents worked in a carnival, but they chose to leave after a riot broke out and tents were set on fire. Cummings recalled the experience in an interview, stating, "Everybody's pulling out guns, you could hear guns going off.
I remember this one guy we knew, he was telling us where to go, some guy just ran up to him and hit him in the face with a hammer – just busted his face wide open. My parents packed up real quick, we took off." Cummings graduated from Haverhill High School in 1983. He moved to New York City and began attending Parsons School of Design, where he met eventual girlfriend Sean Yseult. Before the success of White Zombie, he was a production assistant for the television series Pee-wee's Playhouse. Cummings and Yseult co-founded the band, they continued to work in the band together. The band released three extended plays to little success, with their debut studio album Soul-Crusher following in 1987 through the band's own record label, Silent Explosion, they released their second studio album two years to little commercial reaction. Yseult and Zombie ended their relationship in 1991 and Zombie began dating Sheri Moon shortly afterwards; the band caught the attention of Geffen Records following the release of their fourth extended play.

White Zombie broke up in September 1998, with Zombie stating, "Sometimes a band just breaks up because the band has run its course a
A penciller is a collaboration artist who works in creation of comic books, graphic novels, similar visual art forms, with focus on primary pencil illustrations, hence the term "penciller". In the American comic book industry, the penciller is the first step in rendering the story in visual form, may require several steps of feedback with the writer; these artists are concerned with layout to showcase steps in the plot. A penciller works in pencil. Beyond this basic description, different artists choose to use a wide variety of different tools. While many artists use traditional wood pencils, others prefer mechanical drafting leads. Pencillers may use any lead hardness they wish, although many artists use a harder lead to make light lines for initial sketches turn to a softer lead for finishing phases of the drawing. Still other artists do their initial layouts using a light-blue colored pencil because that color tends to disappear during photocopying. Most US comic book pages are drawn oversized on large sheets of paper Bristol board.
The customary size of comic book pages in the mainstream American comics industry is 11 by 17 inches. The inker works directly over the penciller's pencil marks, though pages are inked on translucent paper, such as drafting vellum, preserving the original pencils; the artwork is photographically reduced in size during the printing process. With the advent of digital illustration programs such as Photoshop and more artwork is produced digitally, either in part or entirely. Jack KirbyFrom 1949 until his retirement, Jack Kirby worked out of a ten-foot-wide basement studio dubbed "The Dungeon" by his family; when starting with clean piece of Bristol board, he would first draw his panel lines with a T-square. Arthur AdamsArthur Adams begins drawing thumbnail layouts from the script he's given, either at home or in a public place; the thumbnails range in size from 2 inches x 3 inches to half the size of the printed comic book. He or an assistant will enlarge the thumbnails and trace them onto illustration board with a non-photo blue pencil, sometimes using a Prismacolor light-blue pencil, because it is not too waxy, erases easily.
When working on the final illustration board, he does so on a large drawing board when in his basement studio, a lapboard when sitting on his living room couch. After tracing the thumbnails, he will clarify details with another light-blue pencil, finalize the details with a Number 2 pencil, he drew the first three chapters of "Jonni Future" at twice the printed comic size, drew the fifth chapter, "The Garden of the Sklin", at a size larger than standard, in order to render more detail than usual in those stories. For a large poster image with a multitude of characters, he will go over the figure outlines with a marker in order to emphasize them, he will use photographic reference when appropriate, as when he draws things that he is not accustomed to. Because a significant portion of his income is derived from selling his original artwork, he is reluctant to learn how to produce his work digitally. Jim LeeArtist Jim Lee is known to use F lead for his pencil work. J. Scott CampbellArtist J. Scott Campbell does his pencil with a lead holder, Sanford Turquoise H lead, which he uses for its softness and darkness, for its ability to provide a "sketchy" feel, with a minimal amount of powdery lead smearing.
He uses this lead because it strikes a balance between too hard, therefore not dark enough on the page, too soft, therefore prone to smearing and crumbling. Campbell avoids its closest competitor. Campbell has used HB lead and F lead, he maintains sharpness of the lead with a Berol Turquoise sharpener, changing them every four to six months, which he finds is the duration of their grinding ability. Campbell uses a combination of Magic Rub erasers, eraser sticks, since he began to ink his work digitally, a Sakura electric eraser, he sharpens the eraser to a cornered edge in order to render fine detailed work. Travis CharestArtist Travis Charest uses 2H lead to avoid smearing, sometimes HB lead, he illustrated on regular illustration board provided by publishers, though he disliked the non-photo blue lines printed on them. By 2000, he switched to Crescent board for all his work, because it does not warp when wet, produces sharper illustrations, are more suitable for framing because they lack the non-photo blue lines.
Charest prefers not to employ preliminary sketching practices, such as layouts, thumbnails or lightboxing, in part due to impatience, in part because he enjoys the serendipitous nature in which artwork develops when produced with greater spontaneity. He prefers to use reference only when rendering objects that require a degree of real-life accuracy, such as guns, vehicles or characters of licensed properties that must resemble actors with whom they are identified, as when he illustrated the cover to Star Trek: The Next Generation: Embrace the Wolf in 2000. Adam HughesThe penciling process that artist Adam Hughes employs for his cover work is the same he uses when doing sketches for fans at conventions, with the main difference being that he does cover work in his sketchbook, before transferring the drawing to virgin art board with a lightbox, whereas he does convention drawings on 11 x 14 Strathmore bristol, as he prefers penciling on the rougher, vellum surface rather than smooth paper, preferring smoother paper only for brush inking.
He does preliminary undersketches with a lead holder, because he feels regular pencils get worn down to the nub too quickly. As he explained during a sketch demonstration at a comic book

A comics artist is a person working within the comics medium on comic strips, comic books, or graphic novels. The term may refer to any number of artists who contribute to produce a work in the comics form, from those who oversee all aspects of the work to those who contribute only a part. Within the comic strip format, it is typical for one creator to produce the whole strip. However, it is not uncommon for the writing of the strip and the drawing of the art to be carried out by two different people, a writer and an artist. In some cases, one artist might draw key figures. Many strips were the work of two people. Shortly after Frank Willard began Moon Mullins in 1923, he hired Ferd Johnson as his assistant. For decades, Johnson received no credit. Willard and Johnson traveled about Florida, Los Angeles and Mexico, drawing the strip while living in hotels and farmhouses. At its peak of popularity during the 1940s and 1950s, the strip ran in 350 newspapers. According to Johnson, he had been doing the strip solo for at least a decade before Willard's death in 1958: "They put my name on it then.
I had been doing it about 10 years before that because Willard had heart attacks and strokes and all that stuff. The minute my name went on that his name went off, 25 papers dropped the strip; that shows you that, although I had been doing it ten years, the name means a lot." With regards to the comic book format, the work can be split in many different ways. The writing and the creation of the art can be split between two people, an example being From Hell, written by Alan Moore and drawn by Eddie Campbell; the writing of a comic book story can sometimes be shared between two people, with one person writing the plot and another the script. The artistic work is subdivided on work produced for the larger comic book publishers, with four people working on the art: a penciller, an inker, a colorist and a letterer. Sometimes this combination of four artists is augmented by a breakdown artist. However, this occurs only when an artist fails to meet a deadline or when a writer, sometimes referred to as a scripter, produces breakdown art.
Breakdown art is where the story has been laid out roughly in pencils to indicate panel layouts and character positions within panels but with no details. Such roughs are sometimes referred to as "layouts." The norm of four artists is sometimes reduced to three if the penciller inks his own work being credited within the book as a penciller/inker. John Byrne and Walt Simonson are artists; that these roles are interchangeable, many artists can fulfill different roles. Stan Sakai is a regarded letterer of comic books who creates his own series, Usagi Yojimbo. Producing his autobiographical works, Eddie Campbell has created both scripts and art, plus teaming with his daughter on the coloring. On Cerebus, for the majority of the run, Dave Sim created everything except the backgrounds, which were drawn by Gerhard.

Brit is a fictional character, a superhero in the Image Comics Universe. He first appeared in Brit, was created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore. Brit starred in three one-shots: Brit, Brit: Cold Death, Brit: Red, White and Blue. Robert Kirkman wrote the three one-shots with Tony Moore illustrating the first and second issue and with Cliff Rathburn on the third; the one-shots have been collected in a trade paperback and was released in March 2007. In August 2007, Brit was launched as an ongoing, full-color series written by Bruce Brown and features Rathburn's debut as an ongoing series artist; the series was edited by Kirkman. As of the second issue, Andy Kuhn came aboard as the series' breakdown artist. In the seventh issue, Rathburn was replaced by Nate Bellegarde as the new artist; the series expanded Brit's universe by introducing his brother and Sister and revealed the origin of his powers. The series was brought to a close with issue #12, according to Kirkman, "the book sells a fraction of what Invincible, The Walking Dead and The Astounding Wolf-Man sell.
But I could have kept it going. I blame a horrendous shipping schedule for the low sales... something that I must shoulder the bulk of the blame for."On March 21, 2010, Brit was announced as the first member of the newly reformed Guardians of the Globe which will star in a six issue mini-series starting in August 2010. Brit's main superhuman ability is that of invulnerability, his body is impervious to any and every kind of physical injury and the limits of his invulnerability are unknown. Unlike many superheroes depicted with invulnerability, Brit does not show any degree of superhuman strength. Brit's powers are the result of a serum developed by his father some time before World War I and in addition to invulnerability, the serum slowed his aging process. Jessica: Brit's wife.
