Gorillaz Co-Creator Jamie Hewlett To Release New Art Book

Jamie Hewlett, the English animator and co-creator of Gorillaz, has announced plans to release a new art book called “Phoo Action: Sliver Jubilee.”

“Phoo Action: Silver Jubilee” will include an oral history of the “Phoo Action” TV show, adapted for a 2008 BBC pilot from the “Get the Freebies” comic published in culture magazine “The Face in the 1990s.” Co-authored by Gorillaz’s Mat Wakeham, the book collects the 12-part “Get the Freebies” comic in its entirety for the first time.

Hewlett, who founded the cartoon band along with Damon Albarn in 1998, will release the 368-page hardcover title in late November via Z2 Comics.

“To say that I hold dear these characters and this property is an understatement,” Wakeham said in a statement. “This book is my open love letter to some of the funniest, most reprehensible, and inspired underground comics of the late 20th century, from the hand of one of Britain’s leading cultural luminaries—Mr. Jamie Hewlett.”
