The graphic novel is out! Some of us may have been able to find it any time in the last week, but you should definitely be able to buy it today.

So, likes/dislikes? What do you think about the art? What about the end point for part one? Any surprises?

Feel free to link to any scans, pics, icons, or other conversations!

i read the book. after edward left, i didn't really like it just like the book. It was kind of boring. I didn't buy it, but I will buy the 2nd one. I can't wait for the scans so I can keep the parts I did like.

I basically loved the beginning. I loved how blood thirsty the cullens looked when bella was bleeding, i love bella's excitement of knowing edward was at her house, I love her reaction to the cd. I really can't wait for the 2nd novel.

I didn't like the 2 page of jacob and bella hugging. the close up of his hands locked around her waist. That seem too initiate for friends. And i didn't get the hand holding that happened like 3 times in the book

I really liked all the parts you did as well ^_^ Her reaction to the cd was my favorite page. *swoon*

I can't wait for the second volume either. I'm totally writing the publisher and saying their date is too far off/that it's a mistake. I know they won't care what I say, lol.

I totally missed the hand holding. Ugh. Just Ugh.

Did anyone else think Edward looked sort of... like a stylized Asian lion in the panels where Bella's hearing his voice? I wondered if that was Kim's style or if it was intentional.

I really thought Edward's leaving would be a pretty emotional scene and that Bella would really look awful when we saw her after the fall/winter, but she didn't really look any different. Kristen nailed those scenes in the movie for me, so I was kind of disappointed that the art didn't reflect the pain I thought Bella felt.

Thank you. I'm under no illusion that they'll speed things up simply because of a letter from me, but hopefully if other fans contact them and know we're disgruntled, they'll consider the printing schedule. I'm a firm believer in letting big business know my complaints. Sometimes it works. ;-)

Good luck and I hope it makes a difference.

What was the stopping point? I have no idea when I'll find a copy, but I'm on the lookout!

Just after Laurant surprises Bella in the meadow. I'm not sure if that's the halfway point or not. I'm hoping we get LOTS of Volterra stuff!

I'll scan my favorite page for you later today <3

If you can't find a copy- holler, and I'll send one over!

Has anyone posted any scans?
6th-May-2013 05:03 am (UTC)
I haven't seen them anywhere! I thought maybe someone would over at Twilight Life on Facebook. I tried to make a post at Lion_Lamb today for the comic, but no one approved it yet. Maybe we'll get a hit over there.

20th-Nov-2014 12:58 am (UTC) - Delayed until July 2016 !!!!!!!!!!
ok posting this here, too


Ugh, I received an email from Amazon saying this has been postponed until July 2016.

Does anyone have a contact there? I think I saw it in another thread.

What the actual hell?

I wonder who SM's publicist is these days. I'd like to hear what's going on from the horse's mouth.
