Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1

Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1
By Stephenie Meyer and Young Kim
Yen Press, 2010. Unpaged. Young Adult

Volume One covers the beginning of the Twilight story, from Bella’s move to Forks, Washington to her discovery that Edward is a vampire (if that was a spoiler, than I just don’t know what to say about that).

The graphic novel is done in black and white with a splash of color during certain key scenes like “the meadow.” This artistic choice added to the story, making important events stand out. I really liked how the artist used black and white photographs spliced throughout the book with his own drawings, giving the story a little touch of an eerie supernatural feeling.
