Hey gang, it's been a while!   I don't think this has it's own thread yet so I am starting one…

Is anyone else like losing their shit waiting for this Graphic Novel to come out?  What a combonation of two awesome things, Beatles and Comics!   I'm in nerd heaven!  

Amazon has them for pre-sale.  There is a fancy Limited Edition hardcover (which I ordered), or there are regular ones for much less.

There is also a movie coming out eventually, which is still in the VERY early stages.  I hope they take their time and don't mess it up.  If they get the wrong actors it's going to ruin the whole thing!  a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Anyone else SUPER EXCITED??!!!  paul-mccartney

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Tbh, no, I'm not. Is there something wrong with me? Should I be? I don't really like comics particularly so… I guess that's why.

Will the film be an animation film? I know you said ''actors'', but if the two are connected…?

Didn't even know it existed. Not a comic fan either so its not something that grabs me.

The movie will be real people, not animated.  

It's okay, I can be just as excited on my own!  I grew up reading lots of Archie, so I'm pretty pumped to read on about my favourite band.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

A film, you say? *clears throat* Well they're going to need some actors if they're making a film *shifty eyes*… so ya know if they want a teenage girl who can do a Scouse accent, I might know someone…. a-hard-days-night-george-10

From The Examiner:

The graphic novel chronicles the early years of The Beatles through the eyes of Brian Epstein. It is being adapted into a live action feature film to be produced by Tiwary and Oscar-winning producer Bruce Cohen (“American Beauty,” “Silver Linings Playbook”). It was recently revealed that Paul McCartney was given an advance copy of the book and has been a silent friend of the project.

I was into comics a while back but just can't afford to keep up.  I have about 2 thousand of the things in bags in the garage (maybe more) and every comic book movie made (well, almost, I still need to get Darkman).

But managed not to hear about the subject of this thread …..   :)

Stupid amazon hasn't even shipped mine yet!  WTF?  Why is everything SO SLOW in Canada?  Can't find that rolling stone anywhere either.  

My inner nerd is very sad.
