Twilight: The Graphic Novel Volume 1 by Stephenie Meyer Art and Adaptation by Young Kim YP FIC MEYER

For those of you that have spent the last years living under a rock in a cave on the moon, Twilight is the story of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Bella moves to the small gloomy town of Forks, Washington to live with her father. She makes friends at school but meets a young man that seems to hate her at first sight, the beautiful and mysterious Edward Cullen. Edward both pursues and pushes Bella away and she finds out why when he saves her life using abilities no human should possess. Who or what is Edward and what will Bella do now that she’s in love with him?

Twilight: the Graphic Novel will absolutely win over the fans. The art is absolutely spectacular in every single panel. Young Kim is an excellent artist and the Manhwa (that’s Korean Manga!) works very well for the story. Both Jacob and Edward look super pretty and Kim does a great job with Bella too. The story moves at a very brisk pace, so it may irk some fans that want a bit more detail. I liked it though, because it helps people jump into Twilight that are unfamiliar with the world very quickly. This is a good book for Twilight fans or for readers that think they may like Twilight. If you want to jump into Bella and Edward’s world but don’t want to read a huuuuuge book to see if you like it, here is the place to start.
