EW’s new book blog, SHELF LIFE, has the news that TWILIGHT, the insanely popular vampire series, is being adapted into a graphic novel. The book will be published through Yen Press, and Young Kim is the artist — with much input from author Stephanie Meyer.
This week’s EW will have exclusive excerpts of the comic. With Harry Potter author JK Rowling eschewing any spinoff media adaptations (except movies, video games and so on), TWILIGHT was next on the list of giant literary franchises ripe for GN expansion. With the manga style so popular with the target audience, this is a huge get for Yen.
What do you think? Will Twilight fans ruin comics the way they are ruining Comic-con?
