Remix “The Fifth Beatle" and Win Rare Limited Edition
Lots of FAB Fifth Beatle news to share! Details below, but to summarize, we have a contest, an NYC signing tonight, two award nominations, a graphic novel preview, and a rockin' review!
Announced on BoingBoing, Wink, a new website dedicated to showcasing "remarkable books that belong on paper" is holding a giveaway of the rare signed, numbered, slipcased "Limited Edition" of The Fifth Beatle, which is limited to 1500 copies, signed by all three creators and comes with an exclusive tip-in page of art. To win, all you have to do is write your own text for the word balloons in the panel above. The entries will be judged by Fifth Beatle writer / producer Vivek J. Tiwary, and he will select the winner. The contest ends at 3pm EST on April 10, 2014, the day Brian Epstein is being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. ENTER HERE.
Prior to running the contest, BoingBoing & Wink's Mark Frauenfelder wrote a wonderful review, calling Fifth Beatle "one of the great graphic novels, destined to be a classic.... a fascinating, cinematic account of Beatles manager Brian Epstein’s determination to ignore the chorus of rejections and take The Beatles far beyond where any musical group had gone before..."
NYC signing tonight 4/8 6-8pm: Vivek J. Tiwary is thrilled to be signing copies of The Fifth Beatle at JHU Comic Books for The JHU Comic Books Inaugural Indie Showcase!! Signing along with Vivek are Mark Russell and Shannon Wheeler (God Is Disappointed In You) and Dan Goldman (Red Light Properties),
We've also added a section on FifthBeatle.com listing all upcoming Signings and Appearances by Vivek, Andrew, and members of "The Fifth Beatle" team. Check it out and come see us sometime!
We're thrilled and humbled that Fifth Beatle artist Andrew C. Robinson has been nominated for the The National Cartoonists Society 68th Annual Reuben Award for “Best Graphic Novel!” and that Fifth Beatle has been nominated for Foreword Reviews Book of the Year Award!!
If you haven't been to our concert yet (bought The Fifth Beatle), we thought we might entice you with some scrumptious eye candy in the form of an album of Fifth Beatle preview art by both Andrew C. Robinson and Kyle Baker.
Thanks for the support.
