Caroline Mickler Ltd, has announced that comics publisher Titan will be adapting the classic film ‘The Beatles Yellow Submarine’ into a graphic novel.
Mickler manages the UK licensing programme for both ‘The Beatles’ and ‘Yellow Submarine’ (together with Apple Corps)
The global deal was brokered by Bravado International in the US. The new book will hit the store shelves in August 2018.
“The global launch of the first-ever Yellow Submarine graphic novel is a major cause for celebration in its own right, but, thanks to the stunning artwork and brilliant storytelling of Bill Morrison, this stands out even in the graphic novel market – a market known for high-quality output,” commented Caroline Mickler.
The cult-classic film is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and will be returning to theatres across the UK on July 8. The 120-page publication will launch in hardback format.
The Beatles: Yellow Submarine official graphic novel adaptation is written and illustrated by Bill Morrison.
Besides, a huge range of licensed merchandise already exists for Yellow Submarine. Games, toys, footwear, art prints and homewares are all available with designs inspired by the film’s rich and colourful imagery.
