Reviews The Beatles in Comics!

    The Beatles in Comics by by Gaet's, Michels Mabel is a 2018 by NBM Publishing publication. I've listened to The Beatles since I was a very small child. But, it wasn't until I was about ten or eleven that I became an avid fan. I’m not a collector of memorabilia or anything, but I do love reading anything about the group, and have several lovely coffee table books about The Beatles. This book intrigued me because this past year I suddenly develop...

    "The Beatles in Comics" is a fun coffee table type book telling the history of the Beatles. There are 24 chapters, each beginning with a short summary and photos of that part of their history. That part is similar to many coffee table music books. That summary is then followed by a cartoon story, with each chapter featuring work by a different artist. I found this book to be lots of fun. The advance reader's copy I was provided only took the stor...

    My fifth Goodreads Giveaway win in two years! (My secret super power? Door prizes. Seriously, you do not want me as your co-worker in any sort of drawing at a company gathering.)I have a passing familiarity with the Beatles, but growing up, mine was an Elvis Presley family. I do own a few of the Fab Four's best-of compilations and the White Album though.This is a nice, if not particularly deep, survey of the band's formation, rise in popularity, ...

    About as much prose as comics in this book titled The Beatles in Comics. Plus, this book really needed a good edit. A number of textual problems and factual errors.
  • Christine
    This is a comic book that is a nonfictional account of the Beatles forming and rising to fame. It begins with how John, Paul, and George meet and, along with some other friends, begin the Beatles. It shows how they develop as a band, their popularity (Beatlemania), and ends with their Shea Stadium concert.Some good points about this book are how it sticks to nonfiction and does it in a linear way in a graphic novel format. I think that is an inte...

    Free ARC from work. This is an odd collection, the story (roughly speaking) of the Beatles told in 24 chapters, each by a different illustrator. The art styles clash strangely, and the English translation seems to have been done by the internet. Also, there are just a lot of weird errors (the Beatles did not have a song called "All I'm Losing" and I have never heard them called "the four boys on the wind." Perhaps that's a French thing?). The aut...

    I'm a longtime Beatles' fan so there wasn't much new information for me in this book but it sure was fun reading it. It's a nice combination of pictures and text, well put together for maximum interest. The addition of the comic drawings is fun (even though the drawings look very little like John, Paul, George, or Ringo!)This book would make a great gift for any Beatles' fan!
