Synopsis of the Coheed and Cambria storyline:
"There are differing theories about the story of Coheed and Cambria, but from the lyrics of the two albums and the beginning of the story spelled out in graphic novel #1, it is known that Coheed and Cambria Killgannon are a married couple living on Earth in the distant future.
The story is centered around a vast structure called the Keywork, a galactic force holding together 78 planetary systems. For some reason, part of the Keywork comes loose, threatening a cataclysmic disaster for the universe. Coheed and Cambria are "Guardians of the Keywork" and Coheed is sent to a distant planet to repair the damage. Apparently, Coheed is the only person capable of doing this.
Unfortunately, someone has injected a serum, called the 'Monstar virus,' into Coheed's body. Once activated, the Monstar leads to a disaster of apocolyptic proportions for mankind. However, the Monstar can only be activated by introducing a liquid called 'the ciache' into the host's bloodstream, and then making eye contact with the trigger counterpart (presumably, Cambria). Coheed has passed a form of the virus, known as the Sinstar virus, onto his four children: Josephine, Claudio, Matthew, and Mariah. The Sinstar virus will destroy the universe if activated, and is activated by a host reaching their 23rd birthday. The Sinstar also has no cure (unlike the Monstar). A general named Mayo Deftinwolf relays this information on to Coheed and urges him to kill his four children before the Sinstar takes effect.
Coheed succeeds in this mission by poisioning Matthew and Mariah, and doing away with Josephine as well. However, Claudio somehow survives, and now has the charge of saving the universe from the Monstar, which has been activated in Coheed. Coheed and Cambria are now dead, as the Monstar has taken over Coheed's body. Cambria's cause of death has not been revealed as of yet.
Meanwhile, a huge war has broken out on Earth. The war may or may not be related to the Keywork's problems, but things aren't looking too good. Claudio tells the story of his love for Newo Ikkin, and his defection from the army to be with her. Claudio then boards a spacecraft called the Velorium Camper, which is piloted by a psychotic killer named Al. No more information has been revealed as to what happens after that."
