You know when your eyes read something but your brain doesn't? This morning I thought I got a press release about the long dead mid-'90s band Kid Kilowatt, which featured members from Cave In, Converge, and Piebald. That turned out not to be the case, but this news is equally cool. Singer, songwriter, and co-guitarist of Coheed & Cambria and friend of Clutter Magazine Claudio Sanchez is primed to make the leap from comics to children's picture books with his new project, Kid Crazy and the Killowatt King. With 72 pages Illustrated by Arthur Mask, the style looks to be ethereal and surreal, which I'm always down with. Says the man with the hair, "“The idea for Kid Crazy actually started as a rock opera in the vein of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, but as it took shape, it began to feel like something that could appeal to a child’s imagination; a kind of fantastic journey with a lesson.” The book launches on October 4, but a bundle can be pre-ordered here.
