Coldplay is getting into the comic book business, with a six-part series to be released at Comic Con in San Diego this week.
The series, titled Mylo Xyloto after their latest album, will tell the origin of the Mylo Xyloto character. The band made this announcement on their official website Tuesday.
The series will be co-written by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Mark Osbourne.
This idea was conceived by the band about three years ago:
“gradually mylo’s story and universe came together and this ended up providing the backdrop for the album and tour. .. to kick things off mark’s going to be holding a panel at comic con in san diego this week. so if you’re there you can ask him ‘who’s major minus?’ and ‘what the hell’s the hypnofeed all about?’ we hope you like it. it was fun making it.”
The following issues will be made available monthly beginning February 2013.
