A Beatles song adapted into a comic.
This my For No One comic, adaptating of For No One, by The Beatles.
It’s one of the longest comics I’ve made to date.
And one of my most elaborate comicsperiments as well.
It tries to blend music and comics in a way that goes beyond simply adapting ‘song content’ into a sequential narrative.

FOR NO ONE COMIC BREAKDOWN
To explain how this For No One comic adaptats the Beatles song exactly, I created a special breakdown page.
There you can read:
• How the For No One Comic relates to the Beatles song.
• How I used the Revolver album cover as an inspiration.
• How I transcribed For No One into a comic book grid.
• How I connected the color wheel to the circle of fifths.
• How I used Visual Replication to depict Rhyme.
• How I used different text-types to add a second layer to the story.

Please be sure to also check out the acoustic cover of the song I did together with my good friend Marcel Harteveld:

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, I think it shouldn’t be necessary to read my comic book breakdowns or explanations to enjoy the comic.
So I’m curious to hear your thoughts on my For No One Comic.
And if you did read the breakdown (link) do let me know what you thought of that in relation to the story.
