As our extensive Comicon coverage hopefully proved, comics and music have never been so closely linked. Bands like Coheed and Cambria are keeping the sci-fi/rock 'n' roll tradition alive, but so is local act A Life of Science.
The electro-indie duo is prepping the release of their upcoming album, Vita Nova, the second in a trilogy the band started with 2009's The Apneist.
The duo recently released a digital version of The Apneist Issue #0. Originally released in 2009, the comic features the beginning of the Apneist storyline, described in a promotional video as "Romeo and Juliet with homicidal robots." We discussed the comic and band's multi-media approach in 2009.
Fans waiting for the next installment will have to wait a little longer, but for fans ready to jump on board, the issue serves as an entry into the band's weird, geek-friendly world.
The comic is available in Flipbook format, and heralds the upcoming release of more Apneist comics, leading up to the release of Vita Nova early next year.
