The Mylo Xyloto Comic Book Series reveals the story behind Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto album, which has sold over six million copies since its October 2011 release. The story was conceived and written by Coldplay with Academy Award-nominated writer and director Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda, MORE, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie), and the Mylo comic books are published by Matt Groening’s celebrated Bongo Comics Group. The six-part series is being released monthly, until July.
