    They finally got it right. This is Sanchez telling "the story" right and in the right way. It was absolutely absorbing from start to finish. It was well-paced, well-structured, and leaps and bounds above and beyond The Second Stage Turbine Blade. It feels like Sanchez finally worked out all the kinks from the beginnings of his story and wrote the album lyrics with this graphic novel in mind, so the story was allowed to unravel in a proper, smooth fashion.The lyrics are in there, sometimes spoken, and sometimes just in the settings, but they felt quite a bit more subtle this time around. The pacing was much better too. There was the proper amount of foreshadowing and character buildup that allowed the reader to actually get involved in the story, understand the settings, and care about the outcomes. It felt like they could take their time and get it out there without feeling like it was all being thrown at you like in SSTB. The art was consistently superb with awesome battle scenes and gruesome violence.All in all, to me this is Sanchez's crowning achievement. Hohenberger's wonky decision-making process in the Year of the Black Rainbow novel and the confused and turbulent plot and characters of the Second Stage Turbine Blade graphic novel were all worth it to get to this point. To me it is so cool that this story has been so fully-realized in such an incredible fashion, not only because it is a great graphic novel, (with that same excellent hardcover binding as SSTB) but also because it began it's life as a rock album. It's a true testament to Sanchez's creative ability.I know that there is a first attempt at making Good Apollo, Vol. 1 floating around out there, but I also know that it was similar to the first attempt at SSTB in that it wasn't fully fleshed out properly. If enough time passes without the next Amory Wars version I may pick it up, but I'm REALLY hoping Sanchez knuckles down and starts churning out the conclusion to this story, because this book has me VERY excited to see where it goes from here.

    I'm no expert in reading graphic novels. Upon completion, I can now bring my total up to three: Watchmen, Second Stage Turbine Blade, and now this. I'll be the first to admit that my love for the band may be influencing my opinion of this graphic novel. I like to think I can be unbiased enough to recognize virtue when it's present regardless of my feelings on other aspects. For example. I can tell you I hated the last Harry Potter movie, but the last Harry Potter book is my absolute favorite in the series. You see? Little things like that.With In Keeping Secrets, I felt an awe for it that I'm sure I would've appreciated even without the references to the music. Because you know what? It's a damn good story. There's depth and complexity. Real, raw emotions. The best of what living beings have to offer and the worst. Anyone with a love for science fiction can see that this is a quality piece of work, and it's something to be proud of. Of course, I won't deny that I really loved the references to songs. I'd get all excited and start tapping my boyfriend annoyingly on the shoulder and say, "Look!! Faint of hearts!" or "GOOD APOLLO HE SAID GOOD APOLLO" and he's laugh at me and say, "I know I read it already."Let me make one thing clear. I was the one who found Coheed and Cambria. Not my boyfriend. I was the one who purchased the two books on Amazon. I was the one who was nice enough to let him read them first. Because he was just itching to open the cover and hear that little crack of a hardcover being opened for the first time. It's always a bit of a magical feeling, only made more so from knowing that it was into the depths of Claudio's mind we were going. I'm truly impressed with this. It was theatrical and cinematic in a way I'd never expect from print work. I only wish it wasn't so dark for so long, but the story is so damn good I really don't have a leg to stand on with that complaint.

    I liked this one more than The Second Stage Turbine Blade.The art was detailed and oddly beautiful in moments of extreme violence. The transition between artists was smooth and almost unnoticeable.The influence of other prominent works of science fiction are still present, but In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 branches out and becomes its own story, something its predecessor didn't do quite as well. Still, there were moments and scenes referenced in the music and by Claudio Sanchez over the years that never came to fruition or played out differently than what I had expected. Sometimes this was good, other times it was disappointing.This series has a lot of potential. I hope they continue it, I'd love to see where it goes.

    Ive been reading the armory comic for i believe 5 years.Id have to say. this only fueled my obsession with Coheed and Cambria. and when the comics came out each month I was there at my local comic store to pick them up.I currently have all the armory comics. 9 signed by claudio , the band, and witers/artist.if you rare looking for a in your face take on star wars i highly recommend this series. alsolots of cliffhangers and twist.

    A continuation of the plot line from Second Stage Turbine - this storyline is more cohesive and well-put-together. Amazing character development for Claudio and Inferno. Can't wait to read the next album!

    I enjoyed this comic so much more than SSTB. I felt like it made more sense and was better realized, with better character development and a better pace overall. I'm definitely a fan of Claudio's story–telling and I'm looking forward to more!

    better than the first, but the comics still lack a certain depthness that the music has.

    I've been a casual Coheed fan since the album "In Keeping Secrets..." (IKS) was released in 2004. Not being someone who frequents comic shops, I haven't made much effort to collect the comic series based on the band's storyline that has been released in fits and starts over the last several years. I've read enough (primarily the first volume of "Second Stage Turbine Blade") to know the basics of the story and understand the quasi-tenuous relationship the comics' story have to their respective albums. But I wasn't well-acquainted with SSTB (the album) at the time I read SSTB (the book, or at least the first half), whereas IKS is both nostalgic and a just plain solid album. I was excited to get my hands on its true story so I could theoretically unlock the story behind this band's strongest and most-loved effort. The results are Meh. The storyline of the Amory Wars is not particularly creative. It reeks strongly of 'hero's journey via prophecy' sci-fi tales like Dune and Star Wars. Is it terrible? No. But like a lot of sci-fi, it's just a bunch of stuff you've seen elsewhere reorganized and recycled and re-named. The 'concept album on crack' gimmick on which both the comics and band are hinged- while a refreshing one and one that certainly perks the ears up on fans of concept albums like myself - is really the one element that saves these stories from being kinda forgettable. I also wish there were more connections between the music and the story. I've yet to go back and listen to the album in full with the story in mind (I'll probably do so tonight), but from my knowledge of the album, it seems like there aren't many direct correlations. I'm not confident that having read this will give me some profound new understanding of the album, even though I recognize how unrealistic that expectation was to begin with. Characters whose names are mentioned in songs are definitely present here, as well as a few other elements. And the occasional song lyric will pop up in the form of dialogue. It all comes together to paint a neat picture as a thematic backdrop while listening to the music, but I doubt it'll unlock much else. IKS (the comic) gets three stars just cuz it's an interesting experiment. If there is, or ever was, another band whose entire purpose was to tell a sci-fi story, and who was releasing comic book versions of those albums to reveal the full story, I'm yet to have heard of 'em. Claudio Sanchez isn't hitting it out of the park - not by a long shot. But he's doing something conceptually unique here and, as a music fan, I'm happy to be able to experience it.

    4.5 StarsThis is such an improvement over Second Stage Turbine Blade. Every single element is better - the art is great, the story actually makes sense, and the characters are given a chance to develop. Even the way the song lyrics translated to the story is executed better than in SSTB, where every song reference was either clunky, cheesy, or both. The only thing keeping me from giving this a full five stars is the fact that In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 is my favorite Coheed & Cambria album, and as nicely as this comic follows the songs for most of the story, it kind of falls apart near the end. Everything from the Velourium Camper trilogy and A Favor House Atlantic goes down differently here, and as epic as the comic is, I prefer the idea of the story that I get from the album. Now I just have to eagerly await the completion of Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV!

    Claudio’s masterpiece, hands down. For fans of Coheed & Cambria - this is what you want. For fans of sci-fi epics - this is what you want. For fans of original & unique storylines - this is what you want. I have a hard time finding any issue with this collection. The deluxe edition looks as great as it reads. Highly recommended.

    This continues the story of The Amory Wars where The Second Stage Turbine Blade left off. I feel Sanchez has really come into his own in regards to the storytelling, especially dialogue and narration. The awkward lines that were in the previous volume to include lyrics from the music this is adapted from are absent, and as a result, this entire book flows wonderfully. The pacing is fantastic, and the perspective/scene transitions are seamless. The art is as good as ever, including some interesting and very beautiful color combinations in the last main scene. While I still don't know much this series would appeal to those who aren't into Coheed and Cambria's music, it definitely appeals to me!

    I am a new fan of Coheed and Cambria and I am very interested in how all of their music albums connect and I want to learn more about the mythology of their growing world. I am definitely not a hardcore fan, but I really enjoyed the Afterman albums. This book is a lot better then the Second Stage Turbine story, I felt like the plot was much more focused in this collection. I really enjoyed Coheed And Cambria's son, I thought his powers and abilities were really cool. I am curious to see how the adventure unfolds in the next chapter arc. I believe the continuation of this space opera was released in limited edition a long time ago, but the art wasn't very good and it didn't sell very well. Hopefully Claudio Sanchez can find a new artist and publisher for the next album really soon. (No World for Tomorrow I think is the next story. Right?) Either way they made a big fan out of me! Five out of five stars!! Very creative!

    If you're a fan of Coheed and Cambria's music, this is for you. Read it and love it. If you aren't familiar with the science fiction progressive rock concept opera that they have been writing and recording for over a decade, go listen to it.This chronicles the events depicted in their second album, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3. This happens to be my favorite album of theirs, and the comic adaptation mostly lives up to what was written and recorded. There are some lyrics that I wanted to see play out, particularly from "The Crowing", but on the whole this is a compelling vengeance story with decent artwork. The coloring is a little flat and could use more nuance, but at least it is stylistically coherent.

    AMAZING! I'm not much of a comic book/graphic novel person but after this I may try. I started reading these to better understand the lyrics. I found myself so engrosses in the story it took me 3 days to read SSTB KSSE GA4 and the bag on line adventures books. And the fangirl gasms when I recognize something in the songs were great. I read these with myn husband and he also squealed. off to read YOTBR and after man now! I can't wait to see the movie either!
