Meet "The Mates"

To a comics-loving Beatles fanatic like myself, this sounds somewhere between pleasantly diverting and potentially brilliant. The comics equivalent of THE RUTLES, if you will. Or if I'm going to be really pretentious about it, the story of The Beatles is rock culture's version of the Camelot myth, so it should prove able to bear up to just as many reinterpretations. And if it comes to the worst, hey, it's still drawn by Glenn Fabry, so everyone's a winner!
