Brian Epstein takes center stage in this gorgeous original graphic novel.
Aimee LoSecco of JHU Comic Books in Manhattan chooses:
“The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story” hardcover, Dark Horse. Any Beatles fan worth their salt needs to own this book. Vivek J. Tiwary tells us the fairly unvarnished story of Brian Epstein, manager to the Beatles. I know, I know, there are those of us who consider George Martin the Fifth Beatle, but the layouts and artwork by Andrew Robinson make even the most die-hard Sir George fan sit up and take notice. This book is well researched, with gorgeous interiors and a cover by Kyle Baker. Not since “Baby’s In Black” has there been such a well-executed comic about the Beatles (or any other band, come to think of it). Cover Price: $19.99. (Release date: 11/19)
