The graphic novel meets the salacious rock and roll celebrity tell-all.
Gorillaz-bass-player mastermind Murdoc Niccals, hip hop hardman drummer Russel Hobbs, Japanese girl-guitarist Noodle and spiky blue-haired singer 2D-have lived the rock & roll life that other stars can only dream of-rife with demonic possessions, underworld dealings, amnesia, prison terms, and jaw-dropping stupidity.
Conceived by musician Damon Albarn and comic book creator Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz have reconfigured the musical landscape, uniquely encapsulating the creative spirit of the digital age. In Gorillaz: Rise of the Ogre the Gorillaz put mouth to paper, revealing the complete story of this groundbreaking band from inception to fame-and all the depraved misadventures along the way.

Gorillaz is, according to the Guiness Book of World Records, the "World's Most Successful Virtual Band." The members are Murdoc, 2D, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs. The band is the brainchild of Damon Albarn of the band Blur and comic book creator James Hewlett.Review :
How do you write a fake biography of a fake band? With style, writer and Gorillaz touring drummer Browne and comic book illustrator Jamie Hewlett, along with the design collective Zombie Fresh Eaters, answer back lustily. Gorillaz are a music/art hybrid masterminded by Hewlett and Blur frontman Damon Albarn, a veritable cartoon supergroup made up of mountainous B-boy Russel Hobbs, Japanese girl guitarist Noodle, metal-worshipping bassist Murdoc, and hollow-eyed, angular vocalist 2D. They are a genuine pop sensation, with millions of albums of dub/hip-hop/punk sold and concerts mixing animation and live musicians. Rise covers all that but from the "perspective" of the band, with the human creators cast as bit players and the focus squarely on the rise, fall, and rise of four scrappy toonz. The book is equal parts graphic novel, design catalog, and spoof of Steven Davis's Hammer of the Gods: The Led Zeppelin Saga, characteristics that easily make it the best-in-the-moment biography of snobs, and devotees of great British art pranks alike will devour it whole. Recommended for libraries of all stripes. -- Library Journal, November 15, 2006
