Twilight: The Graphic Novel: Volume 1

I figure most everybody knows the Twilight story so I'm just going to talk about the graphic novel in particular. The illustrator is Young Kim and she does a wonderful job. The characters seem almost magical in the drawings. She also has a very selective use of color that I find very interesting. I was also impressed with how well she told the story with so few words. I didn't feel like anything was missing or left out. I say if you're a Twilight fan, give the graphic novel a try. Although I must warn you, it doesn't cover the whole book. Looks like a second volume isn't too far down the road.

Book Five in the Graphic Novels Challenge.


  1. I'm going to buy this for my BFF. She's a TWIHARD freak. Seriously, she wants me to buy the Twilight band-aids!

  2. Nice review! I thought the illustrations were beautiful. I didn't read the book and didn't realize that the graphic novel is "Twilight part 1". I'm curious now to see if this will be a two parter. Thanks for sharing!
