Date: 10/11/2013
Time: 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Location: 1A01

"The Fifth Beatle" is one of the most highly anticipated projects of the year—a graphic novel and feature film revealing the untold true
story of Brian Epstein, the man who discovered the Beatles and led them from obscurity to stardom. We invite you for a first look at this unprecedented project—approved by the major historical players—and a discussion of the challenges faced by creators in realizing projects based on celebrity subjects like the Beatles.

Join writer Vivek J. Tiwary, artist Andrew C. Robinson, top record producer David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Fishbone, Sublime), Academy Award-winning producer Bruce Cohen (American Beauty, Silver Linings Playbook, The Fifth Beatle), and moderator Dave Marsh (founding editor of Creem Magazine) for a discussion of the genesis of The Fifth Beatle, the influence of Brian Epstein and the Beatles in comics and films—and the challenges faced by creators in realizing these sorts of projects. Expect exclusive news on the film, the graphic novel (Dark Horse, November 19), and maybe even a few surprise guests...
