Dark Horse: The Fifth Beatle hits number 5 on the New York Times Bestseller List

After an amazing show of demand for Vivek J. Tiwary’s breakout graphic novel, The Fifth Beatle sailed to number five on the New York Times bestseller list in its first week on sale!

Written by multiple Tony Award–winning producer Vivek J. Tiwary (Green Day’s American IdiotThe Addams FamilyMel Brooks’ The Producers)and painted by fanboy favorites Andrew C. Robinson (Dusty StarKing ConanStarmanSuperman) and Kyle Baker (The Shadow, Plastic Man.)The Fifth Beatle is the untold true story of Brian Epstein, the visionary manager who discovered and guided the Beatles—from their gigs in a tiny cellar in Liverpool to unprecedented international stardom.

Yet more than merely the story of “The Man Who Made The Beatles,” The Fifth Beatle is an uplifting, tragic, and ultimately inspirational human story about the struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. Brian Epstein was homosexual when it was a felony to be so in the United Kingdom, Jewish during a period of pervasive anti-Semitism, and from Liverpool when it was considered just a dingy port town. He helped spread the Beatles’ message of love to the entire world, yet died painfully lonely at the young age of thirty-two, consumed by staggering ambition and the endless struggles that came with it.

“It’s captivating, brilliant, funny, and tragic, and it artistically captures every mood and locale associated with this era of Beatlemania. It’s a must-have for Beatles fans and fans of great storytelling.” – Comic Book Resources

“Emotionally powerful and visually breathtaking, The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story is one of the best graphic novels you’re going to read this year.” – Newsarama
