The Beatles Yellow Submarine

The Beatles--Yellow Submarine story adapted by Bill Morrison (2018)
~based on a song by John Lennon & Paul McCartney (1966)
~from the Screenplay by Lee Minoff, Al Brodax, Jack Mendelsohn, and Erich Segal (1968)

Climb aboard the Beatles' Yellow Submarine and take a 60s psychedelic journey to Pepperland where the boys will help Young Fred, Old Fred, and the Mayor restore music, peace, happiness, and love to the land that has been attacked by the dreadful, music-hating Blue Meanies.

This is a beautifully rendered graphic novel version of the Yellow Submarine movie. The colors are vibrant and it was fun to revisit the story. I hadn't seen the movie for decades. The only way it could have been better would be if the music played when you opened the pages (like the greeting cards that come with sound). It was a shame not to hear "All You Need Is Love" playing in the background at the end. Highly enjoyable nonetheless. ★★★★
