Well here it is, I've been waiting for it, the world's been waiting for it, and there's even one sick individual who's been waiting for my review of it, but it's all here anyway. Coldplay's first issue, or issue zero, or the prequel to what will become the Mylo Xyloto comic series. Never has a worse idea, with a stranger creative team behind it ever been put forward to my recollection, but I have been so excited about this, mostly for it's potential god awfulness, that I haven't been able to sleep since this was announced.
The only issue of what I assume was the first early issues given at comic con this year are from Coldplay's Hurts Like Heaven music video, of which the video was the entire first issue of Mylo Xyloto. I have to say that whatever I thought this was going to be, namely bad and like it was written by a 12 year old, has been almost completely exceeded. So I've got some screen grabs of the thing, although I'm not certain about copyright or how legal this is, and we'll run through the key moments of this opening issue to check out why I think it's a little bit crappy.
