The Amory Wars: Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV is the fourth chapter of The Amory Wars and a retelling of the original Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV Vol. 1: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness graphic novel. 12 issues were published between April 2017 to December 2018 with an Ultimate Edition being released in October 2019.
Written by Claudio Sanchez and his wife, Chondra Ecbert, they are joined by prolific illustrator Rags Morales, to continue the story of Claudio Kilgannon, while introducing a new character: Ryder, the writer of The Amory Wars.
Because the comics do not make the distinction between Volume 1 (From Fear...) and Volume 2 (No World...) clear, we are going to assume the comics for Volume 2 will continue under the general title of Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, until shown otherwise.
"Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez (Translucid) and Chondra Echert team up with best-selling artist Rags Morales (Identity Crisis, Action Comics) for the long-awaited third installment of The New York Times best-selling series, The Amory Wars! The evil Wilhelm Ryan remains in power. All those around Claudio Kilgannon are now convinced he is The Crowing, but is he? Ambellina believes she and The Crowing can save Heaven’s Fence rather than destroying it. But with Ryan and a new, even bigger threat looming—can they succeed?"
There are a total of 12 issues to the current releases of Good Apollo. The first issue was published in April 2017 and the first Volume collected four issues before its publication in November of 2017. The next volume was published in March 2018 with the next four issues, and the third and final volume collected the last four issues, being published in December 2018.
In 2019, a hardcover Ultimate Edition was published that included all 12 issues in a single volume, with additional sketches and a gallery of all the individual covers of the issues.
To be added.
Volume 2: No World for Tomorrow
'Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 2: No World For Tomorrow is the second volume of the fourth chapter of The Amory Wars. Canonically, No World For Tomorrows story takes place after Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness, and acts as a conclusion to the original Amory Wars storyline. However, the story has been left up to fan interpretation as no official story has been published as of yet.
On February 4th, 2020, Coheed and Cambria announced the No World For Tomorrow Neverender Tour, during which the band will tour the United States and perform the album in its entirety at each show from May 5th, 2020 through May 29th, 2020. In an official email sent to fans, Coheed and Cambria announced that “After the tour, we look to launch the NWFT series of The Amory Wars,” meaning that the story for No World for Tomorrow will be officially published for the first time since its release 13 years ago. This follows Claudio's plan to update the comic series in chronological order before ending with No World For Tomorrow.
