Comics

The Beatles have appeared in many various comic books and those comic books have become very rare. Most Beatles fanatics strive to collect some or all of these rare issues.

Poster inside Beatles: Yellow Submarine

In 1969, Gold Key/Western Publishing published a movie comic called Beatles: Yellow Submarine based off their movie of the name "Yellow Submarine". The art was done by Jose Delbo and it was written by Paul S. Newman and is 68 pages long. This is probably one of the more notable one of their comic books, as it was written based of their movie.

In 2010, Paul McCartney is written into The Beatles Experience, a complete history and biography of the Beatles. The information for this was meticulously researched and taken from thousands of interviews and pictures. Mike Sagara and Stuart Immonen ink the pages of this book, and cover the Beatles' lives from their birth to past their breakup. A timeline is featured on each page and shows the events of their lives in chronological order. Paul McCartney and the other three Beatles have their lives written in extreme detail and the book includes an encyclopedia background and footnotes detailing related events happening in the world at that time.

He is also one of the stars of the upcoming graphic novel (and film) The Fifth Beatle, about his original manager, Brian Epstein.
