The acclaimed artist is set to share the “not quite true” story of his life in the form of a graphic novel, titled .

Collaborating with a range of artists on the book, the story will document his “historic career rise to fame, fortune and musical nirvana”, according to the press release.

The novel is part of a new initiative by Z2 Comics to publish music-centric comics, with each release accompanied by an original soundtrack.

Z2 Comics co-publisher Josh Frankel explained: “We think bringing together music and graphic novels can be the secret sauce of Z2 Comics”, with his fellow co-publisher Sridhar Reddy calling it “an honour” to publish Oakenfold’s first book.

The Wonderful World Of Perfecto: With Paul Oakenfold And Friends will go on sale November 21. For now, check out Oakenfold’s epic set in The Lab LA here.
