    "Sky of blue, sea of green, in our yellow submarine . . ." -- Lennon / McCartney I can recall when a local UHF station (remember those?) aired Yellow Submarine (1968) as their nightly 8 o'clock movie, and I'm pretty certain it was because it was the film's 20th anniversary. Holy mackerel, Andy! Where does the time go? This graphic novel edition is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four last official big-screen release. Though the film was not exactly a classic it is near-perfectly suite "Sky of blue, sea of green, in our yellow submarine . . ." -- Lennon / McCartney I can recall when a local UHF station (remember those?) aired Yellow Submarine (1968) as their nightly 8 o'clock movie, and I'm pretty certain it was because it was the film's 20th anniversary. Holy mackerel, Andy! Where does the time go? This graphic novel edition is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four last official big-screen release. Though the film was not exactly a classic it is near-perfectly suited to this sort of adaptation. I'd say the one big drawback in going from movie to book format (in reverse from the norm) is that the reader doesn't get to hear the Beatles' songs - 'All Together Now,' 'Nowhere Man,' 'Hey Bulldog' - or hear to the band's witty dialogue (even though it was done by professional voice actors, and not 'the boys') in those warm Liverpudlian tones. But the book really works in a dual-level, Rocky & Bullwinkle sort of way for a family audience. The insanely-colored, unique illustrations and easy-going storyline make it kid-friendly. Meanwhile, the Beatles' dialogue - very reminiscent of the sharp but natural humor displayed in many real-world press conferences / interviews by the group in the mid-60's - should strike a chord with the adults.

    Delightful Puns!! Down with the Blue Meanies! Freedom, Music, Love! Yeah, man! This reminds me of the Yellow submarine cartoon. I had fun reading this and I love the puns. This was joyful. What a group of talent here. I don't know if anyone will ever repeat their success? How do you save the day, Music. I can dig it. Delightful Puns!! Down with the Blue Meanies! Freedom, Music, Love!

    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. First posted on my blog My Reader's Block.

    The graphic novel is a 50th anniversary adaption of the 1968 film. The story is verbatim and Bill Morrison’s illustrations are fairly accurate to the animated feature. The lines and coloring are more crisp in the book than the animation and stays relatively consistent. The novel can’t hope to live up to the movie, because for one, animation has the luxury of more imagery that can’t all fit into a comic and secondly, most important, it can’t play the Beatles music.

On its own, the book is amazing. It’s well crafted and read well, maintaining the comedy and excitement one would hope for. Morrison stays true to the film as he recreates the Beatles adventure with Captain Fred as they take on the Blue Meanies in the hopes of freeing Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and the rest of Pepperland.

    Could not have been better. I know the movie so well that I could hear sound effects and music as I scanned the outrageously colorful art and read the dialogue (much of which is taken directly from the film). This is a must for any Beatles fan!

    Five stars only because it's The Beatles, and only because I love the movie. Truthfully, I found the graphic novel to be a little lacking - sure, the art was beautiful, and some of the word play translated a little better (what with having time to focus on the words, instead of having the dialogue spoken.) But what is this story without the music? The art was wonderful, vibrant and colourful and just like in the movie. But without the music and the animation, the story is nonsensical.

    This is a gorgeous graphic novel edition of the 1968 film; the style mirrors that of the film exactly and the colours are eye-poppingly bright. Story-wise it follows the events of the film beat for beat (give or take the odd line of dialogue here and there), just without the musical numbers, which, admittedly, can feel a bit odd, but on the flip-side it does allow for some new lines - including, jokes, puns, wordplay and references that weren't in the original film but you can imagine them being This is a gorgeous graphic novel edition of the 1968 film; the style mirrors that of the film exactly and the colours are eye-poppingly bright.

    When I saw the libraries had this book, I was so excited that I reserved in both library districts. So, I ended up with two copies checked-out. I absolutely loved this book! The art and narration from the film carried over to Graphic Novel form very well.

    Beautiful pictures and the source of some great quotes--including this one I didn't remember (and that's saying a lot since I've seen this movie 104 times): "YES! Oh, yes is a word with a glorious ring, a true, universal, euphonious thing! Engenders embracing and chasing of blues, the very best word for the whole world to use."

    My daughter has set our family reading goals at 45 books each. While quarantine has helped, I remain constantly behind. I read this fine graphic novel and, unless she looks at this, which she won’t, I am counting it. I did not really enjoy this and all the silly Beatle song puns. Whatever. I hope the target audience enjoys it!

    This book takes a movie that I enjoyed as a child and stripped it of almost every reason I liked it (the songs, the animation, the voices). Yes, Bill Morrison has some cool layouts and the watercolor backgrounds are cool but I don't feel like this book really adds anything to the Yellow Submarine. Devoid of the musical sequences and the trippy animation, this book is stripped down to the very worst part of the original movie ... the idiotic story.

Devoid of the musical sequences and the trippy animation, this book is stripped down to the very worst part of the original movie ... the idiotic story. The already incoherent story is rendered even less sensible by illustrations that try to cram too much into a short space. There are multiple sequences where I only understood what happened visually or how we transitioned from one scene to the next because I remembered how it was in the movie. I can't help but feel like this only exists to sell an expensive art book to fans of the Yellow Submarine.

    "Yellow Submarine" was one of the fastest reads for me ever! I read this book in under an hour! "Yellow Submarine" is one of those Beatles albums that cuts through the "skies of blue" and "sea of green". It does hold the reader's attention throughout its entirety. Also, the animated film celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. "Yellow Submarine" will continue to resonate with fans forever in film, on video, on CD's and even as a Lego Ideas set!

John, Paul, George and Ringo are that quartet to have reached the highest rock-and-roll pinnacle not only as a band, but individually as well. With Bill Morrison's illustrations and the story based on the 1968 film, I would highly recommend this book for any age. You can read it to yourself or even as a bedtime story for your kids or grandchildren. It is not to be missed by anyone who's a fan of graphic novels and the Beatles!!! Rating: *****

    A fun trip down memory lane for me, reading a faithful comic book adaptation of one of my favorite childhood movies. That being said, it doesn't work quite as well as a comic. I am deeply missing the music. Thrilled to have the puns on paper, though! A fun trip down memory lane for me, reading a faithful comic book adaptation of one of my favorite childhood movies.

    Review by Shane Meyer Every culture has its Golden Age, a fabled era and place to which it might return should the boundaries (internal and external) and mitigating circumstances comprising reality fall away. Integral to the myth, in those who subscribe to it, is the belief that the Golden Age has been taken from them. You need three things to stir this fantasy’s pot: a) something taken; b) someone who’s taken it; c) someone to give it back. Yellow Submarine has all three. This “fully authorized” Review by Shane Meyer Every culture has its Golden Age, a fabled era and place to which it might return should the boundaries (internal and external) and mitigating circumstances comprising reality fall away. Integral to the myth, in those who subscribe to it, is the belief that the Golden Age has been taken from them. You need three things to stir this fantasy’s pot: a) something taken; b) someone who’s taken it; c) someone to give it back. Yellow Submarine has all three. This “fully authorized” (the press kit is keen on this point) comic book version of the famous cartoon/album has been published to tell the story to a generation of readers for whom the cartoon and album haven’t quite brought the point home. Logline: Under attack from the Blue Meanies—who, with the aid of anti-music missiles, have laid siege to Sgt. Pepper’s band—the inhabitants of Pepperland send Lord Admiral Fred via Yellow Submarine to enlist the help of the Beatles. Fred has difficulty communicating once in the Squareverse: “Woozle-wozzle, Music! Um, er, flubba-dubba, Submarine! Walla walla bing-bang, Blue Meanies!” he beseeches Ringo and John. They aren’t sure what he’s about, but in 1968 it’s the sort of thing that happened all the time. What passes for humor in the comic book arises from puns, verbal miscues and slapstick. The action, lacking suspense or surprise, rolls along without pause or consequence. Scale and time lack plausibility, like listening to a child tell a story. But every child’s story has one good bit. This one comes at a crucial, quiet moment when Ringo steps on a bagpipe, “WAAAHH.” The palette of writer/illustrator Bill Morrison is loud and his composition is busy. It’s designed for people who know what to expect–maybe one of the problems with nostalgia trips–and don’t want that expectation left unmet. Nevertheless, halfway through, at the Sea of Holes, Morrison manages to accomplish a nifty visual trick having to do with depth of field. “This place reminds me of Blackburn, Lancashire,” says John. I think it’s a joke for English people or Beatle fanatics. On the run from the Blue Meanies, the lads find some goofy outfits and band equipment. That explains the cover of the album. Finally, after a great deal of bantering and romping, they restore Pepperland to its former glory. “Disguised as Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Beatles played a groovy tune! Their music poured out over Pepperland like a welcome summer shower on a parched farmland. But to the Meanies, it was an acid rain.” As political parables go, Yellow Submarine is naïve to the point where you wonder if it’s reached a higher and more completely inaccessible stage of irony: the Nowhere Man becomes a Somebody and teaches the head Meanie—ready in Nazi fashion to decamp to Argentina—about Love, about saying Yes: “Oh ‘yes’ is a word with a glorious ring, a true, universal, euphonious thing! Engenders embracing and chasing of the blues, the very best for the whole world to use.” If Yellow Submarine were to be taken as the Golden Age wish of the 60s, one might surmise the following of the flower child’s ideal world: solipsistic (“it’s all in the mind”), apolitical, morally black-and-white (despite the obsession with color) and immersed in music 24/7. It sounds like hell. Also, “All You Need Is Love”: demonstrably untrue. I wouldn’t say I sympathize with the Blue Meanies, but credit where credit’s due: without their instinctive hatred of music, the comic would have been 50 pages of Ringo deciding whether to commit suicide. On second thought…
