Twihards across America woke up to some exciting Stephenie Meyer news this morning when Entertainment Weeky revealed that Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1 will be coming out on March 16. Illustrated by Young Kim and including a brief introduction from Meyer, the adaptation will be split into two parts to keep as much of the source material intact. It's already cracked our Top 50 in just a matter of hours of being available for pre-order.
EW teased their interview with Meyer, which will appear in this Friday's magazine. Here's a sample question:
How does the feeling of reading the graphic novel compare to that of reading the original? Does it bring something new to the experience for you?
For me, it takes me back to the days when I was writing Twilight. It’s been a while since I was really able to read Twilight; there is so much baggage attached to that book for me now. It seems like all I can see are the mistakes in the writing. Reading Young’s version brought me back to the feeling I had when I was writing and it was just me and the characters again. I love that. I thank her for it.
