"In 1961, twenty-seven-year-old Brian Epstein walked into a dank Liverpool basement to see an unknown rock band perform--and our world was forever changed. The fifth Beatle is Epstein's untold true story: the tale of a genuine visionary who discovered, managed, and guided the Beatles to unprecedented international stardom, rewriting the rule of the pop music business in the process. But Brian Epstein was also the ultimate outsider, constantly searching for a place where he might belong. He helped spread the Beatles' message of love to the entire world, yet died painfully lonely at the young age of thirty-two, consumed by staggering ambition and the endless, seemingly insurmountable struggles that came with it."--P.  of cover.

Summary / Annotation

This graphic novel is not a biography of Brian Epstein's entire life per se, but a look at his time spent managing the Beatles. He is largely credited with making the band an international sensation, and the graphic novel shows that the success achieved did not mean Brian led a satisfied life.
Admittedly, this is the first graphic novel I have ever read. I found it very enjoyable. The artwork is gorgeous, and the story compelling. I'm a huge fan of the Beatles, and recommend this graphic novel for any and all Beatles fans.
