Twilight lends itself to the shoujo manga format much better than in prose or in film. Young Kim's renditions of the characters are disarmingly. We've been keeping Bella all to ourselves since the announcement of the Twilight graphic novel adaptation last summer, but Yen Press is now. A graphic novel version of the Twilight series, adapted by Young Kim and New Moon: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1 · 18 Ratings · 1 Reviews · 1 edition.

Then of course there is the infamous meadow scene, awash in lush gold, blue and green hues. I very much enjoyed the moment when Edward revealed his true self to Bella. Underlying the innocent and restrained art is one creepy relationship, involving two individuals leading a life of destructive co-dependency. To her credit, Kim composes some dynamic layouts for such repeatedly banal and saccharine scenes.
This juxtaposition is quite common in Asian comics, not so much Japanese manga, but I have observed this technique used in Chinese manhua and Korean manhwa. Good lettering in a comic is like good inking or colouring—it blends with the other core elements and does its duty in not disturbing the reading experience.
Granted, the original novel is set in Times New Roman, but it is a ghastly choice for the graphic format. As a result the entire graphic novel is reduced to looking unprofessional and cheap, which is a shame. A story without any text would be fine—preferable, even—but to see an element so integral to visual storytelling displayed in the most amateur fashion is an insult to both the readers and the creators.
Certainly not all comics have the luxury of being hand lettered, but I would imagine for something as massive and lucrative as Twilight , hiring a letterer or even a typesetter or designer would not have been a financial setback at all. The art of lettering, especially in a comic, is a craft that takes years to develop and master—it essentially shapes the way we read; it emphasises tone and pace, which makes it so critical to a solid reading experience.
Twilight reads like a monotonous beginner lecturer in a dull as hell seminar.
I lament that a fantastic opportunity to offer invested fans a treat while providing an opener to readers new to graphic novels is ultimately sullied by a few bad decisions. The sad fact is that this book will sell really well no matter the quality when Twilight toilet paper actually exists , there is something fundamentally wrong about the world.

Who might enjoy it: Twihards and people too afraid to touch the written novel but are still curious may want to try their hand at the comic book instead. Who might not enjoy it: Times New Roman haters, newcomers to comics and graphic novels, and anyone looking for a prime example of a quality comic today.
I take no responsibility for any excessive dazzlement. If pain persists, please refer to any Dr Seuss picture book for immediate relief.

I can see how the narrative fits the shoujo manga format better.
I think it actually came out in Japan as a shoujo manga, and from what I remember, the art looked great. I see your point about the lettering!
Made me wish I could peel them off and just have a wordless book! Notoriously crap fiction needs this sort of option. I never checked out the graphic novels, but I confess I am a fan of the books and the movies faults and all.
I like that you decided to review it as objectively as possible even though you obviously find it loltastically awful! Embed Size px. Start on.
