November 1966. London.
John Lennon can't speak. He can't take his eyes off the photo of a car in flames with Paul McCartney's body inside. His friend is no longer here, and that means the Beatles are no longer here either. But John wants to know the truth, and with George and Ringo, he will begin to re-examine the final hours of Paul's life.
Set in the magical atmosphere of Abbey Road Studios during the writing sessions for Sgt. Pepper, PAUL IS DEAD is the definitive version of the legend of Paul McCartney's death.

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri May 15, 2020

    The entire work allows us to see these celebrities in a personal, specific way and puts us through their emotions in a way more strictly nonfictional comics might not. What results is a celebration not only of the comaradarie among the Beatles, but of the comic form. This is a story which could never be told as well without the visual media provided by comics. In spite of being quite simple on the surface, the comic form allows it to be deeply affecting and true creative harmony between the written and artistic form. Read Full Review

    For Beatles fans this might be a fun alternate history take on one of the legends that formed around the Fab Four. Just be prepared to potentially feel a bit let down by the ending. It's entirely possible I'm just being a bit harsh" but it really felt like the story was set up as one thing" then it became somewhat another, but there's still a lot to like regardless. So not a full recommendation from me, but a cautious one. Read Full Review

    There is plenty of Beatles stuff out there if you just want something with them in it. For everyone else I recommend having a look at it before you buy it to see if it is for you. Read Full Review
