Watch Out for Blue Meanies!

In an interview at the Comic Book Resources website, Bongo Comics Art Director and fellow CAPS member Bill Morrison speaks about his work on a comic-book adaptation of the Beatles animated film "Yellow Submarine" that Dark Horse Comics hired him to do around 1999. Bill completed about half the project before Apple pulled the plug.

The interview contains lots of great scans of the work he did, many in full color. As someone who is a big Beatles fan, I thought I'd share the link to the article where you can check out the pages. As you can see from the sample at right and in the article, Bill and his colorist, Nathan Kane, did a terrific job not just capturing the style, but the tone and spirit of the film as well. Enjoy!
