Greetings fellow Geeks, you know the drill and you know where you are right now, well, you should know at this point 🙂 For those just joining the program allow me to welcome you to the PiercingMetal in-depth visual overview of the 2019 New York Comic Con. I’m up to Part Three of the Day Two observations and I am just going to pick up from where I left you in Part Two. The newbies might want to click HERE first so they see all that’s come before this one.
As per usual, I am picking up from where I left off and here we see the lovely Hendo once more dressed in some sort of Psylocke/Playboy Bunny mashup. I stopped by here once more because as you can see there was a Vero booth. Vero was supposed to take the place of both Facebook and Instagram but it didn’t. I have an account that can be followed but so far I’ve barely used it.
This is Tom Bilyeu and he is the founder of Impact Theory Comics. I was happy to take an autographed copy of his “Hexagon” comic book.
IDW Publishing has a few adult coloring books that are the creative work of artist Alan Robert. Metalheads know him as one of the members of the band Life Of Agony as well and they have been very active of late so do check them out when you get the chance.
For the last few years one of the highlights of the convention exploration was dropping by the folks at Evil Ink Press. They are the publishers of the Science Fiction series “The Amory Wars”. This series is the brainchild of one Claudio Sanchez, singer and guitarist of Hard Rock/Progressive stalwarts Coheed and Cambria.
Claudio always does signings at the booth and the line is ridiculous. It’s awesome that he does this and I always make it a point to snap a quick photo or two when I know his schedule.
I slipped back down to Artist Alley for a few shots and couldn’t resist snapping this design by Michael Golden. Looks familiar doesn’t it? Do you know the story about it? It’s a hoot.
Let me stop here and leave the rest for tomorrow since there still is enough images for one more Day Two posting. Please be sure to click through on the website links down below and to make this all the more special, I’ve added some Amazon.com purchase links for some of the items that were discussed in this chapter. Don’t forget to follow PiercingMetal on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube so you don’t miss a second of the fun. See you next time.
The snow is coming down if you are wondering how things are doing over on the East Coast side of the nexus but we don’t care since it doesn’t seem too bad and we’ve lots of provisions for both the cat and myself here at the Metal Media Command HQ. I’m also being kept busy as the touring announcements keep on coming and are lining out some late Spring into Summer activity with a co-headlining tour to end all co-headlining tours. Yes, Coheed and Cambria will team up with Mastodon and you can read all about it down below.
The Press Release:

Greetings once more my friends, it’s time to get another chapter in the continuing presentations from the 2019 New York Comic Con. The actual event ended about two days ago but those who know how we load up the massive amounts of visuals are aware that these come at the readership for about a week longer than that. Sometimes its even more depending on how busy my camera trigger finger was. As I’ve stated before, those just joing in should click HERE to see all of the posts that have gone online before this one. I am a continuity fan for sure and think that following along in order is a better experience. I’ll start this chapter off with the select visuals of the newer stuff coming from the Good Smile Company. We make sure to visit them at every Toy Fair and think the product is awesome. Take a look.
I returned from the American International Toy Fair to a deluge of email that related to both the music and geek-minded interests and now that the exploration is over its time to get back to business. Here is the latest skinny on Coheed and Cambria who will be heading out on a co-headlining tour.
The Press Release:
Celebrated American rock bands Coheed and Cambria and Taking Back Sunday today announced their upcoming summer co-headlining amphitheater tour. The 28-city U.S. outing, produced by Live Nation, will begin on Friday, July 6 in Miami, FL and make stops in Atlanta, Nashville, Boston, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Chicago, Cleveland, Austin, Denver, Las Vegas, and more. The summer journey will culminate at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, AZ on Sunday, August 12. Northern California act The Story So Far will be the opener on all dates.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale to the general public beginning this Friday, February 23 at 10am local time at LiveNation.com. Artist pre-sales start tomorrow, Wednesday, February 21 at 10 a.m. local time and will end at 10 p.m. on Thursday, February 22. A full listing of dates can be found below along with additional information on both TakingBackSunday.com and CoheedAndCambria.com.
It’s been over two years since Coheed and Cambria’s 2015 album, The Color Before the Sun, was released as the band’s first “non-concept” album over the span of their 15-year career. The album left the sci-fi universe of “The Amory Wars” and instead focused on frontman Claudio Sanchez’s personal life, including the birth of his first child. With 2018 upon us, and a major summer tour now announced, the volume of fans’ chatter for a new album and whether or not it will return to the band’s fictional concept arc will surely reach new heights.
Coheed and Cambria is a rare band whose music is able to transcend “scenes” and effortlessly cross genres of rock – from indie to progressive, to metal and pop-punk to classic rock. The band is frequently compared to progressive, operatic rock bands of the ‘70s, ala Queen, Supertramp or Rush due to their thrilling concept albums that take you on a grand journey of sounds and often clock-in around 10 mins, but still somehow include sugary pop-laden hooks.
