I am almost overly excited about this. In this scan from Entertainment Weekly you see Edward, Bella and Jacob! Here is what the article says:
“Twilight fans have devoured the books, flocked to the movie, and snapped up the DVD. So why not a graphic novel? The publishers behind Stpehenie Meyer’s smash teen vampire series are preparing two volumes drawn by Korean artist Young Kim and heavily edited by Meyer. “For Years I’ve had many fans ask me if there will be a graphic novel version of Twilight,” Meyer said in a statement. “I know they’ll be just as thrilled as I am for this new interpretation.” The graphic novel is essentially Meyer’s brain on paper. “Stephenie is reviewing every page, every panel, “says Kurt Hassler, publishing director for Yen Press, an imprint of Hachette Book Group. “People should feel like they are getting a rare glimpse inside her vision of the property.” (Date to be announced)
Thanks to Everglow for the scan!
How cool is this? EW has announced that Yen Press will be publishing Twilight in graphic-novel form:
“Though Korean artist Young Kim is creating the art, Meyer herself is deeply immersed in the project, reviewing every panel.Take a close look at the biology-class sketch we’ve obtained (that’s an empty dialogue bubble between their heads, if you’re wondering). What’s interesting to me is that it doesn’t look simply like an artist’s rendering of Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson. In fact, the characters seem to be an amalgam of Meyer’s literary imagination and the actors’ actual looks. The description of Edward from biology class: “His dazzling face was friendly; open, a slight smile on his flawless lips. But his eyes were cautious.” And Bella: “I was ivory-skinned …. I had always been slender, but soft somehow, obviously not an athlete…”
Eeeek, this is awesome. The more Twilight stuff I can get my hands on the better! I will keep you posted on the release, where to buy etc!
