The Apple Corporation has, in celebration of the groundbreaking film's upcoming 50th anniversary, announced a comic book adaptation of Yellow Submarine. The film was inspired by the music and the lives of the Beatles, and the planned 2018 release of the comic book adaptation coincides with the 50th anniversary of the movie. A mix of psychedelia and straight-forward animation that featured unreleased Beatles tracks and a cameo from the live-action band themselves, Yellow Submarine went on to become both critically acclaimed - it received a New York Film Critics Circle Special Award in 1968 - and warmly embraced by fans. Their characters' speaking voices in "Yellow Submarine" were actually provided by actors John Clive, Geoffrey Hughes, Peter Batten and Paul Angelis.

The deal between Apple Corps Ltd. and Titan Comics was negotiated by Bravado International, which handles licensing for the Beatles in North America.

The Fab Four's inter-dimensional battle against the music-loathing Blue Meanies are to unfold in pages written and illustrated by Bongo Comics founder and incoming Mad magazine editor Bill Morrison, who the Hollywood Reporter said is fulfilling a long-held dream of adapting the animated film.

"Each TITAN is 3" blind-boxed and there are 2 hidden chase figures in every 18-figure PDQ (or counter display case, if you're from Merrie Olde England) for Beatlemaniacs to hunt and collect!
