EDITOR’S NOTE:  There’s a lot of news lately regarding the graphic novel biography of The Beatle’s first manager, Brian Epstein.  It ranks among the best examples of using the visual format of comics to tell an engaging biography of a music trailblazer and belongs in the library of all Beatles fans.  We have a hardcover deluxe edition, but the new features in the new softcover are tempting.  Here’s more information from the source, along with many links to learn and hear more . . . . . .
