It's an exciting time right now in comics. There are so many talented folks out there, not only working for the Big Two, but beyond. 'Wild Blue Yonder'. 'Invincible'. John Tiffany series. And so many more- too many to mention!- out there. Definitely a new era of illustration and storytelling and graphic art, advancing our craft as they go.
One of the most exciting advents in all of the aforementioned disciplines comes out this week. 'The 5th Beatle'; written by Vivek Tiwary and illustrated by . I believe that this book changes graphic novels as we view them- it's that good. Originally conceived as a Broadway play converted to the graphic novel format (with editorial help from yours truly), this book reaches the stratosphere due to Andrew's ridiculous talents. You don't have to care about the Beatles; this book is above a simple biography of the times and life of Brian Epstein.
Head to your local comic shop, book store, online retailer and GET. THIS. BOOK. Inspiration will be forthcoming!
