The author writes:

The real reason why The Beatles broke up, revealed at last! Delightfully devilish, McCartney.

Unfortunately, the images are... just a *bit* anachronistic. Paul's from the early mop-top days, while John seems to be from the solo era. I went with whatever photos I could find that had the most fitting facial expression, and this is what I got. It's a joke comic, so it's probably fine.

As a side note, John's hair was a pain to deal with, and I'm honestly surprised it turned out as well as it did.

Originally I was going to have Paul pin the crime on Yoko, and John would have said "Not buying it, Ringo!". This left George out of the equation, though, so I decided to rewrite.
