Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' Yellow Submarine comes this fully authorized graphic novel adaptation.
The Beatles are recruited by the Captain of the Yellow Submarine to help him free Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and the world of Pepperland from the music-hating Blue Meanies.
The music-loving, underwater paradise of Pepperland has been overrun by the music-hating Blue Meanies and their leader, Chief Blue Meanie. They turn the people of Pepperland into living statues by dropping apples on them and imprison the Pepperland's guardians, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band inside a soundproof blue glass globe, before confiscating all the music instruments in the land. Pepperland's mayor sends aging sailor, Young Fred out in the fabled Yellow Submarine to find help. He travels to our world where he stumbles across the Beatles and begs them to help him free his world. They agree and head back to Pepperland, teaming up with Jeremy The Nowhere Man along the way to help overthrow the evil Blue Meanies through the power of music and love.

"Former Disney and The Simpsons artist Morrison splashes out several rainbows’ worth of pleasing colors for this happy ode to harmless psychedelia that perfectly captures the movie’s stoned punning and rippling anti-authoritarianism." - Publishers Weekly
"Morrison uses the tools that are uniquely available to him in the comics medium – page design, panel shape, choice of moments and angles to depict, placement of word balloons, and timing of page turns – to bring something new to a familiar work. He moves the story along, he lands the jokes, and he gives readers something gorgeous to look at on every page. The result is a comic that brings you about as close to the magical world of Sgt. Pepper and the Blue Meanies as you can get without a little Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds playing in your headphones" - Forbes
