Twilight: The Graphic Novel Volume One by Stephenie Meyer and Young Kim

Twilight: The Graphic Novel Volume 1 is based on Stephenie Meyer’s novel Twilight. The series has exploded in popularity since it was first released, and in 2010 it was adapted into this graphic novel. How do you summarize Twilight? By now it's so much more than a book. But here goes: Bella Swan isn’t too happy when she first moves to Forks, Washington; she’s used to the sun of Arizona, where she lives with her mom. She hardly knows her father at all, and isn’t sure how well she’ll fit in at school. Then she meets Edward Cullen, the mysterious guy that everyone gossips about. There’s something weird about him and his family…and Bella can’t help but be interested…

What I like about the graphic novel is that it has a different look than the movies; it’s not a comic version of Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart, but its own version, done in manhwa, or Korean manga style. This is only volume one, though, so it’s not the entire first book, let alone the entire series, and I haven't heard anything about a release date for Volume Two. Still, It’s a good choice for Twilight fans who’ve devoured the series as well as extras like The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.

Find it at IndieBound.
