It’s hard to get excited about Beatles releases anymore. As a devoted fan it often feels like every stone has long since been overturned. Their relatively small musical output has been analyzed adnausem by fans and scholars alike. Their story is so engrained into pop culture it’s almost not necessary for biographies to bother to be printed about them. So it can be refreshing when something pops up that allows us to perceive Beatlemania differently and approach it from another angle. This is precisely what Vivek Tiwary’s The Fifth Beatles: The Brian Epstein Story graphic novel does.
