Coldplay is prepping the release of the band's Mylo Xyloto comic book, which is based on the 2011 album of the same name. Six issues of the series, from writer Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda), are due in February 2013.
According to Osborne, the character of Mylo Xyloto was a "young Silencer on the front lines of a war against sound and color in the world of Silencia. Mylo discovers that the enemy he's been trained to hate his whole life might not be the enemy after all."
"Three years ago we had an idea with our friend Mark Osborne about a character called Mylo Xyloto - 'xylo' as in xylophone, 'to' as in toe. Gradually Mylo's story and universe came together and this ended up providing the backdrop for the album and tour. Now we're proud to announce that early next year the story is going to come out as a six-part comic," added the band in a statement.
The comic series will be unveiled at Comic-Con this week.
