Titan Comics announced that it will be publishing an official illustrated adaptation of The Beatles’ animated film, Yellow Submarine. The movie Yellow Submarine was released in 1968 as an animated musical fantasy, inspired by the band’s music. In the film band members Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr agree to accompany the captain of a Yellow Submarine to go to Pepperland to free it from the music-hating Blue Meanies.
Directed by animation producer George Dunning, the film received widespread acclaim from critics and Beatles’ fans, generating its own cult following, years of British cosplay, and inspiring generations of animators. The adaptation will be written and illustrated by Bill Morrison, writer and artist from The Simpsons comics.
Titan’s toy line is also rolling out a new third wave of its blind-box figures featuring The Beatles. The “All Together Collection” is available now here at Entertainment Earth for pre-order. Individual figures for John, Paul, George, and Ringo from Titan’s 50th anniversary Sgt. Peppers line (shown in the photo above at bottom right) are available now in two sizes.

Morrison’s new book, Yellow Submarine, is due to hit stores in 2018 to tie-in with the 50th anniversary of the release of the movie.
