The NY Times Covers Bill Morrison’s ‘Yellow Submarine’ Graphic Novel

National Cartoonists Society President and MAD Magazine editor Bill Morrison was profiled by The New York Times for his work on Dark Horse Comics adaptation of The Beatles “Yellow Submarine” from film to graphic novel.

From the George Gene Gustines story:

Mr. Morrison, a co-founder of Bongo Comics, whose titles include “The Simpsons,” and the editor of Mad Magazine, has been working on the project for 20 years. Just before “Yellow Submarine” turned 30, he began writing and drawing an adaptation of the animated film for Dark Horse Comics. “I got about 25 pages done before they called me and asked me to stop because the deal fell through,” he said. Was it the work of the Blue Meanies, the music-hating creatures from the film?
