It's still a year until the iconic Beatles film "Yellow Submarine " turns 50, but plans for the celebration have already begun. The Apple Corporation is authorizing a comic book adaptation of the classic film with Titan Comics.

Titan publishing director Chris Teather said of the forthcoming comic, "We're thrilled to be publishing The Beatles: Yellow Submarine for the 50th Anniversary of this fantastic movie. We can't wait for Beatles fans to experience this official adaptation."

The Beatles: Yellow Submarine was written and illustrated by incoming MAD Magazine editor Bill Morrison. The comic book is slated to come out in 2018.

I might be interested in buying the Yellow Submarine comic book when it comes out.

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.

If it's just an adaptation of the screenplay, I can watch the movie. But if it's a different story, I might buy it.

I think it will be the same premise but some things have probably been changed.

Hello, all! I'm on the train heading home from Comic Con, where today I attended the panel on the Yellow Submarine graphic novel. I was unable to secure one of the advance copies before they sold out, but we got a sneak peek during the panel with Bill Morrison, Andre Pepoy and Nathan Kane, and it is stunning! Faithful in reproducing the film's vibrant style.

Afterward, we had an opportunity for a photo op with a life-size Blue Meanie (the person inside was a woman who said she was the only one small enough to fit inside). Then, there was a signing in the exhibit hall. They had blank paper to sign and doodle Blue Meanies for those of us without comics, and Bill personalized mine with "All You Need Is [Parlance]!"

Incidentally, they were taking pre-orders for the collectors' edition that is limited to a run of 1968. 

It was a lovely cap to the month's festivities, as earlier this month LA's Amoeba Records had a 50th bithday celebration with cake and giveaways preceding screenings at the Arclight Cinema across the street.

Hopefully my photos will upload on train wifi. If not, I'll upload later.

Thanks for the report, it looks like it’ll be fun. I’m a comic guy by the way. I’ll be getting this for sure. The Lennon NY Years graphic novel was also very good.
