When we first caught a glimpse
of Twilight: The Graphic Novel Volume 1
were were a little unsure. But now that we've seen it in person, held it in our hands and flipped through all 224 pages of its glossy goodness, we're in love.
"It's simply beautiful," Stephenie Meyer
wrote on the books dedication page. "Working with Young [Kim] was always very exciting, but more than that, it brought me back to my first Twilight
experience. She would send me a new set of drawings, some portrait of Edward or Bella would jump off the page and suddenly I would be feeling all the same things I felt that first summer while I was writing their story. The art made it fresh again."
The experience of reading 'Twilight: The Graphic Novel' is anything but typical. It's like a comic book, but it's hardcover. It's such a familiar story, but it's different. There are so many gorgeous illustrations on each page, but the words jump off the pages because they are Stephenie Meyer's original words from the first book. It's really kinda cool.
If you're wondering how the drawings of Bella, Edward and Jacob compare to Kristen Stewart
, Robert Pattinson
and Taylor Lautner
. Well... they don't. The artist based her drawings on the descriptions in the books, not the actors who were cast in the movies. So they really look nothing alike, which is a little refreshing and weird at the same time.
Only 350,000 copies of 'Twilight: The Graphic Novel Volume 1' are available in stores and on Amazon
