December 13, NEW YORK, NY— Vivek J. Tiwary’s debut graphic novel, The Fifth Beatle tops The New York Times bestseller list in its third week of release! The breakout novel sits atop long-established titles such as The Walking Dead and Batman. This news comes on the heels of announcing Peyton Reed (BRING IT ON, THE BREAK-UP) as the director of the film adaptation and the beginning of the casting process for the part of Brian Epstein.
Written by multiple Tony Award–winning producer Vivek J. Tiwary (Green Day’s American IdiotThe Addams FamilyMel Brooks’ The Producers) and painted by fanboy favorites Andrew C. Robinson (Dusty StarKing ConanStarmanSuperman) and Kyle Baker (The Shadow, Plastic Man.)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 Epstein was homosexual when it was a felony to be so in the United Kingdom, Jewish during a period of pervasive anti-Semitism, and from Liverpool when it was considered just a dingy port town. He helped spread the Beatles’ message of love to the entire world, yet died painfully lonely at the young age of thirty-two, consumed by staggering ambition and the endless struggles that came with it.

Praise for Vivek Tiwary’s The Fifth Beatle:

Emotionally powerful and visually breathtaking, The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story is one of the best graphic novels you’re going to read this year.” - Newsarama

“Andrew Robinson has a deft touch with facial expression and body language. His engaging character development brings the lads and their magnificent manager to full life. What Vivek does is pretty amazing. It’s not impossible, no doubt, but it’s an ambitious goal to take any compelling figure and tell their story. This tribute to Brian Epstein is spot on and will inspire.” – Comics Grinder

“Writer Vivek J. Tiwary takes us on a very poetic journey, from Epstein’s beginnings as a record shop manager, through his years managing the world’s biggest band, right through to his tragic and untimely death. Andrew C. Robinson’s art is a bit of a star here. His style may not be to everyone’s taste, but there is little doubt his watercolours bring this book to life in a great way. If you are a Beatles fan, or even just take a passing interest, ‘The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story’ won’t disappoint.” – Big Comic Page

Both heartbreaking and uplifting, The Fifth Beatle not only reveals an important, unsung chapter in the history of the Beatles—but it will inspire anyone who’s ever dared to believe in a dream. For more information and to view the trailer for the graphic novel, visit

The Fifth Beatle is available in bookstores everywhere. 

Tiwary is represented by David Alpert and Lawrence Mattis at Circle of Confusion.

Two critically acclaimed series both go back to print 
The first, second, and third issues of the hugely popular SEX CRIMINALS series, created by Matt Fraction (SATELLITE SAM, Hawkeye) and Chip Zdarsky (Prison Funnies), have sold out at the distributor level yet again and are already slated for a reprinting. SEX CRIMINALS #1 only just released on 9/25 this year, but quickly caught the attention of critics and readers alike. Time magazine dubbed SEX CRIMINALS the #1 comic series of the year, Multiversity Comics named it Best New Series of 2013, Comics Alliance recognized Chip Zdarsky among the Best Artists of 2013, and actor Wil Wheaton calls it “one of the best things I’ve ever read, period.” SEX CRIMINALS #2 is heading into its third printing and issue #3 into its second printing.
Kieron Gillen and Ryan Kelly's THREE has been heralded by Comic Book Resources as “a spectacular new series that defies expectation with its astounding depth and rigor” and championed by Multiversity Comics as “a tribute to a long-forgotten people. Three is a rebellion against the swallowing void of history by way of enlightenment.” THREE #1 and #2 are both heading back for reprinting.
SEX CRIMINALS #1, #2, and #3, as well as THREE #1 and #2, have all completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores. They are currently available digitally on the Image Comics website ( and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (, iOS, Android, and Google Play.

Goldman’s ghost stories made the hairs on the back of my neck prickle, while the bawdy slapstick interludes served only to lure me into dropping my guard for the next scare. Highly recommended.”--Cory Doctorow, BOING BOING
(December 12, 2013) – In 2014, Dan Goldman’s critically-acclaimed cult favorite webcomic Red Light Properties will make its long awaited print debut. Re-edited, relettered, recolored and rescripted, the first-ever print edition of Red Light Properties will be available as a trade paperback from IDW Publishing in late January, 2014. The book includes more than 20 never-before-seen pages and is designed to be the definitive reading experience, the first of an ongoing series of Red Light Properties releases from IDW.

Red Light Properties presents the adventures of an ambitious Miami real estate agency with a very…specific business model. The husband-and-wife run agency unearths properties that are unsellable because they’re haunted. The husband then cleans out said haunted homes by whatever (often unsavory) means necessary. The ghosts find closure. The seller unloads their property. The RLP Agency receives a fee. Everyone wins… except maybe for the Tobins, who are barely on speaking terms. You see, it’s not an easy business, flipping haunted houses.

Following his Eisner-nominated work on the acclaimed Shooting War, his non-fiction graphic journalism graphic novel 08: A Graphic Diary of the Campaign Trail, and the launch of the web comics collective ACT-I-VATE, Red Light Properties represents a departure for Goldman. “2014 finds me at an interesting crossroads. It’s been more than a decade since I began creating comic books. After my work on “08”, I’d had my fill of politics and topical comics. Instead I wanted to use a longer story about a broken but unique family to talk about life, death, family and how the spaces we live in can hang onto echoes of us after we’re gone. ” said Goldman. “This coming January marks four years since the online launch of Red Light Properties and it’s the perfect time for IDW to publish the first print volume as part of their ongoing relationship with Monkeybrain Comics.”

Like fellow artists Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons and Cameron Stewart, the Brooklyn-based Goldman uses computers to draw comic books.  At the forefront of digital-first comics, his approach with Red Light Properties is perhaps more akin to a film production than to traditional comic book storytelling. Building 3D virtual sets to shoot inside of, working off actors’ performances (often his own), Goldman produces the series using just a laptop, a Wacom stylus and a smartphone. As Douglas Rushkoff raved on BOING BOING, “Dan Goldman…has blossomed into one of the industry’s most innovative artists …This book represents an emerging comics talent coming into full possession of his storytelling powers.”

On the eve of his 40th birthday this May, the print publication of Red Light Properties represents a major milestone for the Eisner-nominated writer/artist and his series. With its memorable cast and mad mash-up of Ghostbusters and Property Brothers, Red Light Properties will have readers talking for years to come.


“The equivalent of seeing a circus performer pull of a remarkable high-wire act while juggling weighty and disparate materials to create a unique spectacle.” – The Beat

Hilarious .. Poised to turn as many heads as Goldman’s last web-to-print standout, Shooting War... a druggy blast inspired by Goldman’s heroes like Terence McKenna, Larry David and Wong Kar-Wai.” –

“Cartoonist Dan Goldman made a splash with his work on the political graphic novels Shooting War and 08, but his webcomic Red Light Properties is his real labor of love, the story of a Florida real estate exorcist told with cutting edge web techniques that mixes the supernatural with the current real estate crisis.” – Publisher's Weekly

“Mixing the supernatural realm with an all-too-familiar world of marriage breakdowns, financial meltdowns and everyday horrors, the strip is more impressive work from the man behind Shooting War and 08: A Graphic Diary Of The Campaign Trail.” –'s Techland

Dan Goldman is one of the few creators who carries a boatload of style, credibility, and innovation in the comics scene both in print and online... [RLP] pops more than any of his previous work, partially due to the color palate but mostly because you can clearly see the man is having fun.” – Miami New Times

“Weird and recommended.” –

“RLP’s set amongst Miami’s condos, cafes, and drug culture… all presented in a sweet interface that lets you unfold the comic frame by frame” – Thrillist

About Dan Goldman:
Initally launched and serialized on on January 4, 2010, chapters from the series have been available as digital downloads on iBooks, Kindle and Nook. For the past year, it's been available exclusively as a digital-first series on Comixology through Monkeybrain Comics. Along with writing and drawing his own groundbreaking comics, Goldman serves as Story Sync Architect of AMC’s second-screen applications for The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad. Goldman has spoken at SXSW Interactive, MIT’s Futures of Entertainment and numerous comic book conventions about digital-first publishing and the digital-only production processes.

make SAGA a must read this March
Saga, vol. 3
The New York Times bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning, and Hugo Award-winning series SAGA continues with the much-anticipated third volume trade paperback, collecting issues 13-18, the entirety of the third story arc and releasing in March 2014. 
While Marko and Alana travel to an alien world to visit their hero, enemy pursuers remain hot on their trail. Forced to contend with tragedy, complications, running for their lives, and hope, the family at the heart of SAGA is pushed to the limit in this volume.
Praise for SAGA:
Voted #1 on Buzzfeed’s “The 30 Greatest Comic Moments of 2013”
Voted #1 on Paste Magazine’s “The Best Comics Artists of 2013”
Voted # 3 on TIME Magazine’s “Top Ten Comics and Graphic Novels of 2013”
Voted #11 on The Onion’s A.V. Club’s “The Best Mainstream and Superhero Comics of 2013”
“best comic, ever” —Felicia Day, actress 
“A break-out hit… Mischievous, vulgar, and gloriously inventive.” —Douglas Wolk, TIME Magazine
“This is a completely addictive, human story that will leave readers desperately awaiting the next volume.” —Publishers Weekly
“One thing I found myself quickly appreciating is that Vaughan isn't playing a "good side/bad side" game here. Neither race comes across as heroes or villains here; they're both clearly seeing themselves as the good ones of course, but both sides make choices that put them in the "to be feared" camp.” —Greg McElhatton, Comic Book Resources
“It is such a refreshing delight to see something come along that is unapologetically bold. That is fearless in the choices it makes. That has the confidence of a writer that knows exactly what he’s doing, and entices you to come along with him.” —Kelly Thompson, LitReactor
“Saga #1 deftly establishes entire cultures and presents a wide-ranging cast of characters who we understand almost instantly. This is more settled, self-assured work from Vaughan, but it is anything but bland. Instead, it’s prickly and precise, and perhaps a bit unsettling, because it’s somehow completely familiar and yet entirely new. And that discordancy helps to power its narrative.” —Tim Callahan,
“Brian K. Vaughan has certainly given Saga legs, balancing the tense threatening bad guy jerk-attack issues with familial drama.” —Andy Hunsaker, Crave Online
Readers can catch up on the ongoing SAGA series with volume three, which will release on March 19 and is available for pre-order with Diamond Code JAN140556, ISBN: 978-1-60706-931-7.
