Fifth Beatle Paperback Coming October 2015
The Fifth Beatle writer / producer Vivek J. Tiwary always wanted to be a "paperback writer." Now he has his chance with the upcoming softcover edition (October, 2015) of his NY Times best-selling graphic novel, which tells the story of Beatles manager Brian Epstein. To celebrate the new edition, artist Kyle Baker created new art for the book, including this Sgt. Pepper image (below). We're also excited to share a fab full-screen Fifth Beatle preview at the Medium's music site, Cuepoint, as well as a super interesting podcast about the South Asia comics scene. This weekend (March 28 & 29) Vivek will be participating in Dutch Comic Con (schedule info below).
