    We've got a very special prize for all Beatle fans! The Fifth Beatle is the untold true story of Brian Epstein, the visionary manager who discovered and guided the Beatles - from their gigs in a tiny cellar in Liverpool to unprecedented international stardom. Yet more than merely the story of "The Man Who Made the Beatles," The Fifth Beatle is an uplifting, tragic, and ultimately inspirational human story about the struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. Brian himself died painfully lonely at the young age of thirty-two, having helped the Beatles prove through "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" that pop music could be an inspirational art form. He was homosexual when it was a felony to be so in the United Kingdom, Jewish at a time of anti-Semitism, and from Liverpool when it was considered just a dingy port town. This limited edition of this groundbreaking graphic novel features a signed tip-in sheet by creators Vivek J. Tiwary, Andrew C. Robinson, and Kyle Baker, along with a bonus section including unique Beatles and Brian Epstein memorabilia and behind-the-scenes sketches, a unique, textured cover, and a slipcase. Limited to 1500 signed and numbered copies.

    Here are the prize details:

    • 1. Limited Edition Signed/Numbered version of the graphic novel
    • 2. A Limited Edition "white album" sampler signed by Vivek J. Tiwary
    • 3. Script - first few pages of the script (taking us through the first sequence, through page 12 of the book), signed by Vivek J. Tiwary
    • 4. Exclusive 8 1/2 X 11 print of the cover, signed by Vivek J. Tiwary, Andrew C. Robinson, and Kyle Baker-- from San Diego Comic Con 2013

    Just answer the simple question below by Monday 3rd Feb to be in with a chance to win.
