The Beatles Yellow Submarine movie was a breakthrough in animation and storytelling. For years, it has has delighted children of all ages. It’s helped introduce new generations of fans to the music of the The Beatles.

Yellow submarine merchandise has been plentiful. From toys, to lunch boxes, to coloring books, to apparel, Yellow Submarine seems to be well represented in the fan market. However one area lacking representation is visual storytelling.

To date, there have only been two comic books published related to the movie. There was the Gold Key Yellow Submarine in 1968 and more recently the graphic novel by Titan Comics written and illustrated by Bill Morrison.

The universe that the Yellow Submarine movie is set is vast. It’s location and characters are a goldmine to be explored.

This petition is to request that Apple Corps Limited explore an ongoing comic book series depicting the characters and locations touched on in the movie. The comics could be set immediately after the movie, and show the Beatles and their entourage exploring the various seas and visiting characters in Beatles songs. There could even be stories that explore how the Blue Meanies came to be and how they plotted their conquest of Pepperland. Some can even go back as far as how the Yellow Submarine and the fore-fathers and fore-mothers first arrived at Pepperland. Bill Morrison, co-founder Bongo Comics that publishes the Simpsons in comics said, "The film is full of characters and concepts that are only touched on, so there is a lot of potential for expansion." Robert R. Hieronimus, Ph.D., author of "Inside the Yellow Submarine" and co-author of the follow up "It's All In The Mind" said, "the idea of a SEQUEL instead of a remake was a really good one."

The potential for comic book and merchandise sales could be lucrative for Apple Corps. Recent history has shown that comic book stories are a great source of inspiration for blockbuster movies. Yellow Submarine comics can be another venue for bringing in new Beatles fans of all ages and all walks of life.

You need look no further than Bill Morrison to be the creative force for the project. Not only did he produce a great comic adaptation to the Yellow Submarine movie for modern comic book readers, he is also a great Beatles fan and would keep the integrity of the franchise in mind when producing the product.

I hope that the signatures and comments that go with this petition are enough to warrant a good look from Apple Corps.

Thank you.
