Tag Archive: Yellow Submarine graphic novel


No, The Beatles aren’t merely the band Paul McCartney played in before he joined Wings.  The #1 band of all time released its animated musical fantasy comedy movie Yellow Submarine 50 years ago, and less than a year later, in January 1969, the band followed up with an album of the same name.  Thanks to a never ceasing fan-base and a creator who is as big a fan as anyone, we all can embark on a new voyage of the song-filled submarine from a port near you beginning next week.

We first previewed this 50th anniversary project here at borg.com more than a year ago.  It’s the first official illustrated adaptation of The Beatles’ famous animated film.  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.

You will hear the voices of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr as you read the The Beatles Yellow Submarine graphic novel.

So get ready to revisit Pepperland and the Sea of Time, Sea of Science, Sea of Monsters, Sea of Holes, Sea of Nothing, and the Foothills of the Headlands.  And beware the Blue Meanies.

Here is a big preview courtesy of Titan Comics, followed by an interview with Morrison:

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.

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.
