Fifth Beatle wins IGN's Best Original Graphic Novel
A Fab Contest / Philly Signing
What a FAB start to the new year! Our tour submarine docks in Philadelphia this Saturday 1/25, with Fifth Beatle writer / producer Vivek J. Tiwary signing at Twelve Gates Arts. We've got a killer worldwide contest run by our UK friends at The Book Depository: win a limited edition signed + numbered slipcase of The Fifth Beatle, exclusive print, signed script, rare "white album" promo and more-- signed by Vivek, Andrew Cartwright Robinson & Kyle Baker! Full details and enter to win at The Book Depository by answering a Brian Epstein question!
"Writer Vivek J. Tiwary successfully captured the turmoil and triumphs of Epstein’s too-brief life, while artists Andrew Cartwright Robinson and Kyle Baker produced artwork worthy of the Beatles. All this is a handsomely crafted hardcover for only $20? [*only $15.32 at Amazon] How could it not be the best of the year?"
Vivek Tiwary in US News & World Report: "When they came to the United States, it was at a period where JFK had just been assassinated and the world was in turmoil. He [Epstein] saw in the band a global message of love, that if packaged properly would be embraced everywhere. Certainly it was, but when it came to the U.S., it was particularly needed. The U.S. needed some comfort and love and that’s what the Beatles represented.”
Thanks for the support!
