Twilight to be adapted into a graphic novel
The best-selling Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer will be adapted into a graphic novel.
The next incarnation of the epic Twilight love story has already been announced, even though three of the films adapted from Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling novels are yet to be released.
EW.com exclusively announced the confirmation of a Twilight graphic novel, to be published by Yen Press. Korean artist Young Kim will illustrate the novels and is reportedly drawing from a combination of Meyer’s descriptions and the film actors’ appearances.
Fans can rest assured that the integrity of Meyer’s original creation will be honoured because Meyer will be very much involved in the graphic novel’s development, reviewing every drawing and representation.
According to MTV , this is simply the natural continuation of the Twilight legacy since Meyer has previously stated that she was partly inspired by such comic book creatures as X-Men and Iron Man.
This news comes at an opportune time – the cast and crew of the upcoming Twilight saga film, "New Moon", will be gathering next week at the annual Comic-Con in San Diego to discuss the ins and outs of the phenomenon with eager fans of both the Twilight series and the comic book genre.
