hello everyone
3 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’s going to come out as a 6-part comic.
and 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.
love coldplay
