“Twilight” is coming to officially coming to comics, and seeing as how comic book creations like Iron Man and the X-Men helped inspire author Stephenie Meyer to write “Twilight” in the first place, that shouldn’t surprise anyone. Though movie fans won’t be seeing photo-realistic versions of Meyer’s characters straight off the big screen, certain features unique to “Twilight” and “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” actors such as Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will influence the artistic rendering by Korean artist Young Kim.
Both Meyer’s original descriptions and characterizations and the actors’ likenesses will influence the graphic novel’s look, according to EW.com. The article states that Meyer will oversee every panel of the new project.
The manga-style adaptation of Meyer’s books sounds, from the story’s description, as if it will be a straight words-to-comics appropriation of existing stories, but there is no word yet on how many books are currently planned. At least for now, though, everyone asking where the “Twilight” graphic novels are 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.
