The Fifth Beatle, which documents the life and work of the man credited with discovering the Liverpool band, is written by Vivek J Tiwary with artwork by Andrew Robinson and Kyle Baker.
The Wall Street Journal quotes him as saying: "I could really relate to a lot of the struggles Brian had. Telling his story is a very passionate labour of love for me.
"I wanted to work in artist management, I wanted to manage bands. I thought, 'If I'm going to manage bands, I should study the great artist managers'."
Tiwary also confirmed plans to bring The Fifth Beatle to the medium of film in the future.
