BEATLES WITH AN A HC (KNOCKABOUT)
KNOCKABOUT COMICS
MAY141466
(W) Mauri Kunnas (A/CA) Mauri Kunnas
These are the first beats of the Beatles' career as only legendary rock cartoonist Mauri Kunnas could tell them. The cover depicts John, Paul, George, and Ringo crossing the street Abbey Road style, but the street's in Hamburg's seedy Reeperbahn red-light district, and the flip cover adds lost Beatles Pete Best and Stu Sutcliffe to the mix. Kunnas chronicles the band from Ringo's birth (against a backdrop of the Luftwaffe shelling Liverpool) through the release of their hit, "Please Please Me"/"Ask Me Why." Focusing on the band's pre-fame days in a sly and irreverent style (and not shying away from Brian Epstein's fixation upon John), Kunnas makes liberal use of corny in-jokes and hokey wordplay, but it's all done in good fun.

PREVIEWS Prevue: Cullen Bunn's The Brothers Dracul From AfterShock

“I'm thrilled to be working on BROTHERS DRACUL, a 15th century horror tale that explores the "true" history of the infamous Vlad the Impaler. With this book, we've brought the entire creative team of UNHOLY GRAIL along. I'm working with artist Mirko Colak, colorist Maria Santaolalla, and letterer Simon Bowland once again. We had so much fun telling a horror story with King Arthur as its central figure, we had to get the gang back together for this story, featuring one of the most shocking icons of horrific history!” -Cullen Bunn
