For those of you who can’t get enough Edward and Bella, EW announced on their website that Yen Press will be publishing Twilight in graphic-novel form, publication date still to be determined. Though Korean artist Young Kim is creating the art, Stephenie Meyer herself will be reviewing every panel.
The manga-style adaptation of Meyer’s books sounds, from the story’s description, as if it will be a straight words-to-comics of existing stories, but there is no word yet on how many books are currently planned. At least for now, though, everyone asking has their answer.
Nevertheless, this announcement will likely be a hot topic when “Twilight” fans descend on Hall H next Thursday for the “Twilight: New Moon” panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Since that room is going to be packed with a hybrid crowd of “Twilight” and comics fans, you can bet these new books will be on a lot of minds.
What do you think of the artist rendering above? Overload or will you buy it?
