Graphic novel based on The Beatles' 1968 film "Yellow Submarine" due out in August
Written by Classic Rock 93.9 on May 23, 2018
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the classic animated Beatles film Yellow Submarine, an authorized graphic-novel adaption of the movie will be published on August 28 by Titan Comics.
You can get a preview of the colorful book by checking out a new video trailer that’s been posted on the company’s YouTube channel. The clip features animated scenes from various parts of the comic, along with text that reads, “Join John, Paul, George and Ringo on a nautical adventure as they battle to free Pepperland from the music-hating Blue Meanies.”
The novel was adapted and illustrated by Bill Morrison, who’s the current editor of MAD magazine and also has served as an illustrator for The Simpsons comics.
Judging by the trailer, the book’s illustrations faithfully recreate the dazzling, psychedelic imagery featured in the film, which premiered in July of 1968. The novel is available for pre-order now at Amazon and TheBeatlesStore.com.
As previously reported, a restored version of the Yellow Submarine movie will be screened at a variety of U.S. theaters this July in honor of the 50th anniversary. Visit YellowSubmarine.film for more details.
