By Ian Keogh Brian Epstein was a troubled man in a repressive era, but also a visionary.

“Everybody’s got something to hide except me and my love for this comic book.

There are certain comic books that make you proud to be a fan. Often times, they are the books you can hand to somebody and say, with confidence, “This is a masterpiece, a true work of art.” They are the comics that inspire us; they affect us in a big way.

It’s a brilliant comic, in every aspect, from script to art to lettering to production; it is beautiful.”
