We mentioned before that Jamie Hewlett was working on the Gorillaz Alamanac – including the very first Gorillaz comics. Well, Jamie is now inviting submissions in a 'letters to the editor' format that will appear in the Almanac from willing fans. And they are doing so via their previously members-only Facebook group.
"With what our company has evolved into, I not only have the chance to work with some of my favorite creators in comics, but some of my favorite bands in the world. Gorillaz is definitely near the top of that list, and we decided to share that feeling with others by giving everyone an opportunity to participate in one of the most anticipated pairings of comics and music in the history of either" says Z2 publisher Josh Frankel.
Here's the Gorillaz form to submit your entry. Just remember that;

Oh, if they get sued for what you submit, you'll have to pay up. Entries to Gorillaz' letters page close on the 10th of July.
