|Oh dear!, the boys are jilted, ...yeah, as if!! (click on images to enlarge)|
|Little Margie looks more like a frustrated housewife...|
|You didn't see this in the movie - Superman doing the twist! Look closely at the album Robin is holding, it's a direct parody of the Sgt. Pepper picture, with Paul turned the other way.|
|At least the artwork on the storyline looks quite good and relates to the actual Beatles themselves.|
The website author has this to say about the production:
''This 'unauthorized biography' did a fine job of organizing the highlights of the Beatles tumultuous history, capturing the look, feel, and mood of each Beatles 'era'. You could tell this was a labor of love for Kraft, a former rock journalist who was a firm believer in the rock and roll/comicbook connection. George Perez was a natural choice for drawing the Fab Four as he had made a name for himself as a 'group artist', having for a period of time drawn the Avengers, Fantastic Four, and the Inhumans simultaneously. On top of that, his ability to draw realistic likenesses was rarely given such free reign.''
Hmm, not my opinion I'm afraid. The quality of drawing may have been sufficient for the likes of superheroes, characters who were pure fiction, but when it came to real people, portrait drawing in various angles and lighting has got to be spot on, otherwise it looks clumsy and poorly researched. And this publication is unfortunately that. Although the storyline is contrived, it moves along at a swift pace, the four Beatles are in fact crow-barred into comic book cliches, unoticible in a superhero storyline, but embarrassenly obvious when trying to portray real life situations and events... Anyway make your own mind up, below are some sample pages for you to see,
I actually got hold of he Look-In comic book and it was more than I expected. A really very fine piece of artwork and the storyline is well directed and easy to read, I urge you to try and obtain a copy yourself - if you can!
