This just in from Little Brown:

“The graphic novel adaption of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight sold over 66,000 copies in its first week, the largest debut for a graphic novel in the US, according to publisher Yen Press. Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1, illustrated by Korean artist Young Kim, already broke the record for largest first printing for a graphic novel with 350,000 copies.

“We are absolutely thrilled to see such a historic debut for the Twilight graphic novel,” said Kurt Hassler, Publishing Director of Yen Press. “For many of Stephenie’s fans, this incarnation of Twilight is their first experience with graphic novels, and we sincerely hope that it will help foster a lifelong appreciation of the craft.”

The release date for the second volume is forthcoming.”

  19. Wait a minute people, first of all, this is a GRAPHIC NOVEL not a MANGA. this is in no way anime, it just looks like it. and it’s really worth your money, i think the graphic novel was more true to its descriptions than the movies, honestly. it’s like the words ARE in the way the picture is drawn, it’s amazing!

  20. Can I get this at Borders or Barns and Nobles???

  31. Ewwwwwwwwwww! The beauty of twilight is in the fantasy and imagination and the absorbtion you feel from the details and creating a world with ur vivid imagination from the writer’s creation

  32. Michelle says:

    Bought and read my copy in 45 minutes…Loved it and eager for more. Thanks Stephenie

  33. RunsWithWolves says:

    I cant look at it … The way edward is drawn he just looks like a 1:1 copy of my younger brother… grrrreat!

  34. KSmithGray says:

    I loathe anime (or anime-style) drawings. Like… Loathe them with a firey passion. Why in the world would they draw the graphic novel this way? There’s no way I’m paying money for this, and I probably won’t even view someone else’s for free.

    • Read. How Come That Idiot’s Rich and I’m Not? is one example. You don’t neaesscrily have to read whole books either. You can still glean useful information from articles and reviews of books.Create Niche Sites that You are Passionate About.I don’t neaesscrily buy into that theory, but to each his own. Need a place to host your niche website empire? Need a place to register your domain names? Don’t neaesscrily want a blog or website empire? Here are

  35. I really like the graphic novel.. although it’s a bit expensive over here TT.TT

    The drawing style is not your usual manga/anime, but lovely nonetheless.
    Would’ve love to see more smiles on their faces though 🙂

  36. Oh wow. I didn’t even know about a graphic novel. This is the first I heard about it. I’ll have to check my local Barnes and Nobles. Thanks

  37. Pink Firefly says:

    I finished mine in 30 mins after i got it and i’m like the first person who ever bought it

  38. thats how i pictured everyone….sorry robert and Kristen! you guys are still gorgeous haha

  39. alice kinda looks like a man…

  40. OMG I love it!! I got it today and finished it in the store!! I everything twilight but this is better than the movie! It has less info than the book but more than the movie and the pictures are beautiful!!!

  41. twi fan says:

    i got the book for easter, read it that morning; less than 2 hours i read the whole thing. then i read the book over and over that whole day. it was amazingly beautiful. i cant wait til the second volume comes out. i’m just dieing to see what it is like. like the other twilight book – which i have read the whole series about eleven times – i need to finish what i started. i love the graphic novel!!!
