Are you planning on buying the Twilight Graphic Novel Volume II?
I love Volume I, but I admit that I wasn't sure if I would. I dunno, it just seemed like why do I need to read this as a comic book when I already love the books and the actors portraying them in the movie? And yet I found that reading it gave me a 'new and different Twilight experience.' I didn't hear the voices of Rob or Kristen or the voices I hear while reading Twilight. I heard a darker, more mysterious lower Edward voice and a slightly high-pitched, hesitant younger, very girly Bella with long flowy hair.
I decided I enjoyed that these artist renderings were not copies of the actors or the movies. Turns out, I crave new perspective on the Saga and little new nuances or surprises. Sort of like how I watch New Moon and think, "Okay this time Edward won't leave!" Right, you do it too? You just want a little change every now and then. A little surprise...that's what I found with the graphic novel.
One of my favorite surprises was the equivalent to page 230 in the Twilight book chapter 11, Complications. In the book Edward has declared it would be his turn to ask questions and he walks Bella to classes all the while constantly quizzing her. From Midnight Sun we know that just before this point he was still very hesitant to touch her. Believe me, he wants to, but he is worried about her being fragile and how she will react to his cold stone skin.
But the graphic novel shows them holding hands as they walk through the halls, which definitely made my heart sigh. When it comes to Twilight it just takes so little!
So if you haven't yet gotten the graphic novel, I highly recommend it!
And I am really looking forward to Volume II!
I didn't comprehend to total meaning of the cover picture of Bella on Volume I until the picture for the second volume was released and then I realized it was them in the meadow. (yeah I'm slow!) So now I say, if anyone ever sees where this is being sold as a poster, please let me know because I think I would like to have it.
Isn't it pretty? Don't you just sigh to think of the meadow scene here? If you truly love the story and characters, then I think this is a wonderful addition to your book collection.
On another note, big Congrats to the Phillies!!!!!
Edward is happier about their winning than he looks!!! He just doesn't like hats messing up his perfect hair.
Tell me your impression of the graphic novel, if you have it, in the comments!!!
