With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistible and impenetrable.

Beautifully rendered, this first installment of Twilight: The Graphic Novel is a must-have for any collector’s library.

From Publishers Weekly

The Twilight Saga continues as the world's most beloved teen vampire story arrives in yet another package: the graphic novel. The story has remained the same: girl meets vampire, girl falls in love with vampire, vampire loves her back and almost gets her killed. Meyers's trilogy has captured by storm the anguished hearts of teens and romance readers—not to mention the jealous attention of the rest of the publishing industry. With each book in the saga, Meyers has built a devoted audience with an insatiable appetite for her series. Yen Press is clearly capitalizing on that audience with this graphic novel adaptation. The hardcover presentation and price-point signal that the book is intended as a collector's item and, at its best, another way to relive the Twilight experience. Unfortunately, this first half of the two-volume adaptation of Meyers's first book brings nothing new to the table. While Young Kim's paneling isn't terrible, her pacing is off, and the book reads unevenly. The dialogue is stilted and the characters come across as annoying rather than expressing longing. Twilight: The Graphic Novel reads like a first draft where all the pieces are there, but have yet to meld to one another and actually fit. There are certain angles and physical poses that Kim has not yet mastered, and they stand out starkly in this book. Nevertheless, retailers will be hard-pressed to keep copies of this book on their shelves. (Mar.)

I saw the movie before I read the books.
The dialogue scenes were even more painfully tedious when stretched out into drawings.

The book was done perfectly, the art was amazing.

I never review and I would never review on anything Twilight. But I guess there is a first for everything! I received this book in the mail today and was immediately impressed. Opening it up, I honestly didn't really know what I was expecting. I saw the movie before I read the books. First thoughts was the movie was ok, but after I read the book, I hated the movie.
After finishing the graphic novel (took about an hour) I have to say, it makes me wish they would re-do and re-cast the first movie. This is way more than even I could have imagined. Stephanie Meyer was right when she wrote that this breathed new life into the Bella and Edward story. The drawings are exactly how I would have pictured the characters for the movie should look like. The vampires are truly beautiful and Bella has that understated beauty, so well drawn out in this novel. Their love story is not rushed (like in the movie...I never understood why Bella and Edward fell in love) and is well played out. What surprised me even more was the nice little splashes of color through-out the book. This is what sets this apart from being a boring black and white manga/comic, the splashes of colors (there is a nice colored twilight scene) and the emotions certain scenes carried.
Definitely a must read, this is the way the movie SHOULD have been like!

It took one hour to read this magnificent graphic novel, but oh, what a fantastic 60 minutes it was!


Let me just say that the artist, Young Kim, is one talented lady, and she has breathed new life into a classic vampire series. She captures the quiet beauty of Bella Swan, making her look lovely, but in an unadorned way that we have always pictured, but have never seen. She combines her own artistry with live shots, and the results are stunning. You feel as if you are truly stepping into the wet and slippery world of Forks, Washington, immersing yourself in a world where humans, werewolves and vampires co-exist unwittingly. What made this graphic novel such a easy page-turner is not just the knock-out drawings, but the layout as well, which is key to the enjoyment of any graphic novel. Kim has been able to give a face to all our favorite characters, and where she resoundingly succeeds is in her depiction of Edward. No slight to the handsome Robert Pattinson, but this is the way I had imagined Edward Cullen to look like - gorgeous and other-worldly in his male beauty.

For those of us who know the story like the back of our hand, this first volume concludes with Bella and Edward leaving the forest, with the initial secrets of vampires revealed in their pretty swath of forest. We all know how it starts, where it's going, and how it ends, but my goodness, I cannot wait for the next installment. Let's hope Stephenie Meyer will give her blessing for the three other books, because as of right now, only Twilight is getting the graphic novel treatment. I highly recommend this book to all fans of Twilight, vampire lovers, and reluctant readers who need a more aesthetically pleasing introduction to the world of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. For grades 5th and up. Enjoy!

Twilight: The Graphic Novel is a very impressive graphic novel. It is extremely well done, but seems thin, not only in size, but in content. The interesting part for me was that scenes that I didn't really think much about while reading the books are extremely well drawn here, such as when Bella arrives and her father picks her up and they drive home. There's one illustration in the scene that's so well done, you can practically see the car driving and the rain pouring down. It's amazing! However, the disappointing aspect for me was that other scenes that I loved so much, such as the blood typing scene, were barely touched upon.

The graphic novel is basically the dialogue from the novel, with a few quotes from the book thrown in. Some of the magic of knowing what Bella's feeling or thinking is sadly lacking. And Bella herself, the average, clumsy girl, has been transformed into a teen beauty, tall and slim with flowing locks of hair that always seem perfect. The images, however, are brilliant and extremely well done. I did feel, however, that the other characters were better brought to images in the graphic novel than were cast in the movie.

I am an ESL teacher and the graphic novel is a perfect format for lower level readers to be able to pick up a popular book and read and enjoy it just like their peers. Finding that Twilight has been transformed into a graphic novel was big news in my classroom. We have such a huge demand that I need to purchase two more.

Overall, it's an amazing book and worth the purchase even if you've already read the novel. It's a completely new take on the presentation of the story.

I am a fan of the book series, but I dispise the horible acting from the movies -- the main cast is as flat as death. Which is why I bought this book. I wanted a visual reference that I could belive in, something real yet not real (which is what I like about the story itself).

There are some minor changes to the story (Bella doesn't seem to have overwhelming self-esteem issues), but these changes aren't a big deal for me, though they might be for fanatics. The artwork is amazing, although I was hoping for a few more colored pages ... but I have been a manga fan most of my life, so I'm used to black and white.

The only true disapointment I felt was when the book ended half way through. I'm eager to get my hands on the next volume, and I hope that the other books in the saga will also be converted into graphic novel form.
