The only compliant I have w/book was that it wasn't as long as the first graphic novel, so I'm little worried about what scenes they may cut off or shortened in New Moon Vol. 2. Also, it didn't have much splash of color, probably because the book was short.
Because I liked New Moon Vol. 1 so much, I'm annoyed that I have to wait over a year for the next volume. I mean, New Moon Vol. 2 is only 160 PAGES, so we shouldn't have to wait THAT long for it. I keep hoping that they'll change the release date sooner than July, but that's just wishful thinking.
I kind of hope that they'll continue the Twilight saga in graphic novel version; they already done Twilight and New Moon, so they might as well continue with Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.
end the book where it did (2-part book). I didn't think where it left off was at the half way point for the original novel; but I enjoyed it anyway.
The illustrations were great, but lacked the climatic effect that the two Twilight volumes did. Most of the graphics were black and white with the exception of two or three short scenes. This volume lacked to capture the tone as effectively as I have come to expect. After Bella discovers Edward has left, I wanted to see her state of mind reflected more in the artwork, but this aspect of the story was glossed over. For something that impacted me so heavily in the novel and film versions, I was left feeling let down. The black and white drawn in grey shades, when I’d have liked it to be represented more visually desperate than a white-wash treatment.
With that said, I still liked the darkness – the more sinister aspects of the storyline: the wolves, Laurent, Victoria. While the movies only hinted at this, in the novel it was meant to make you feel uncomfortable, or in the least, shiver. The artwork here captures the impact more in the tone of the novel, and I enjoyed getting more tension for Bella than I had from the film franchise.
Though, my favourite pages from this volume would have to be the end pages, which I feel really captured the soul of the first half of New Moon – desolate, haunting and dark.
So while I appreciated the artwork, the story felt flat. Admittedly there was a lot of detail in there that I did not expect, but there was something about it that failed to punch in its weight class. Possibly because some of my expectations went unmet.
Really looking forward to Volume 2 later this year. And upon searching the internet, it doesn’t appear Young Kim is continuing with the series. Sad. I’d really like to see where her illustrations could have taken the saga.

Must-read for fans of "The Twilight Saga". The illustrator is really good and they managed to get the original novel pretty well translated into graphic novel form. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Andrea M. Pugliese
