The Beatles in Comic Strips

By Enzo Gentile, Fabio Schiavo.

A collection of some two hundred cartoon strips dedicated to the Beatles, many of which are extremely rare and now inaccessible. Forty years after their break up, the Beatles remain the biggest phenomenon of music and mass culture in the world of entertainment. The book for the first time investigates and documents the interest that cartoonists, publishers, and enthusiasts have shown in their special relationship with the universe of comic strips—a rich and variegated relationship with thousands of publications, in every part of the world, and a production that continues to the present day. In some stories the Beatles are the protagonists, in others they make cameo appearances, while others feature their lyrics transformed into comic strips. Published on the fiftieth anniversary of the Fab Four’s first single (“Love Me Do“), the book celebrates the band with a festive, fun and original product, conveying a dimension that does not age, transmitting the legend that endures through the years and changing fashions.


Enzo Gentile, journalist and music critic, has contributed to innumerable journals and papers, written books, and produced radio and television programs, exhibitions, and festivals devoted to the music of our time. A historian of rock, he is a lecturer at the Catholic University of Milan. Fabio Schiavo has been a professional journalist since 1990. A contributor to various publications, he has been an editor at Rolling Stone Italia since 2004. A Beatles fan, he owns one of the largest collections of comic strips featuring the Fab Four in the world.
