    Ah, Twilight. It seems like everywhere you turn, you can't escape it. The books are everywhere, the franchise has 5 motion pictures, a make-up line, clothing, and now graphic novels. What's next? Toilet paper? Oh, c'mon. Who wouldn't want to wipe their ass with Edward Cullen's face? The only question is: will it leave a trail of sparkles? So, those three stars you see? Not for the story, but for the artwork. If you want to know what I thought of Twilight...lol...well, you can check out my revi Ah, Twilight. It seems like everywhere you turn, you can't escape it.

If you want to know what I thought of Twilight...lol...well, you can check out my review here. BUT I'm going to go ahead and give credit for where it's due: The artwork is stunning. Kim Young did an awesome job bringing the characters to life. Most of the pages are in high gloss, black and white, some consisting of a few colors splashed here and there: And when you get to the end the last few pages are full color. They are very beautiful! Ok...That's pretty much all the praise I can force out of my body for anything related to Twilight. ****BONUS*** New Moon: The Graphic novel (Stephanie's version): Amen. Hallelujah.

    As an unabashed Twilight fan, I couldn't even wait a day to pick up the second volume of the Twilight Graphic Novel, illustrated by Young Kim. The Graphic Novel - both volumes 1 and 2 - is a great addition to the Twilight Universe. Note that I say "addition." The Graphic Novel adds richness to Twilight, but is not strong enough to stand on its own.

Through facial expressions and As an unabashed Twilight fan, I couldn't even wait a day to pick up the second volume of the Twilight Graphic Novel, illustrated by Young Kim. The Graphic Novel - both volumes 1 and 2 - is a great addition to the Twilight Universe. Note that I say "addition." The Graphic Novel adds richness to Twilight, but is not strong enough to stand on its own. This is due largely to the inherent nature of a graphic novel - it is heavy on illustrations and lighter on dialogue. Through facial expressions and the short statements, you capture the gist of the plot, but not in the same way as a book full of words. Additionally, if you're not familiar with graphic novels or manga, you may have difficulty following the Twilight Graphic Novel. When I read Volume 1, I had never read manga and I was confused by the pace of the plot and the placement of the drawings. Fast forward 18 months and I have read a great deal of manga. It made a big difference in my comfort level with Volume 2. While the Graphic Novel cannot fully replicate Twilight the book, Volume 2 like Volume 1, is a gorgeous work of art. Young Kim is an amazing artist. The characters are wonderfully depicted; they are living portraits. You see Edward's personality through the drawings: his broodiness, his arrogance, his humor, his temper, his kindness, and his desperate love for Bella. Subtle changes in facial features depict emotion perfectly. Bella is drawn just as I imagine her in the novel: slender, pretty but not too pretty, stubborn, passionate, and overly kind. Of all the characters, I am most pleased with Alice. She is perfect in every way that the movie Alice is not. She is drawn as very thin and delicate looking with short, spiky black hair - a feature the movies keep messing up. Emmett too is drawn well, bulky with dark curly hair - another thing the movies ignore. The highlight of Volume 2 for me was not the baseball game or the final showdown with James. Instead, it was Carlisle's backstory, along with some of other characters' stories. Numerous pages were spent depicting the end of Carlisle's human life and the challenging beginning of his vampire life. Unlike the main story which is drawn in black, white, and gray tones, Carlisle's story was drawn in color that is best described as sepia. There are mixtures of black, brown, orange, and red. Not only does the color scheme separate the backstory from the primary story, but it also emphasizes the tumultuous nature of that time period. We see Carlisle's angry, bigoted father, the ill-fated vampire hunt, Carlisle's painful transformation, his despair, and then his reawakening as a "vegetarian." The visuals make these scenes much richer than the book. So much so, that I would go back and re-read the pages in Volume 2 before I would read the pages in the book to get the best understanding of Carlisle's story. The scenes of Edward, Esme, Rosalie, Emmett, and Alice's transformations are very brief, but similarly rich. While the backstories were my favorite part of Volume 2, the baseball game and the ballet scene were still fabulous. I loved how Ms. Kim managed to convey suspense and anticipating through art, using more lines and faster flowing drawings. Even though I obviously knew what was going to happen, I was still nervous as I flipped through the pages. Like the book, the story is solely through Bella's eyes, so we miss much of what the Cullens did at the ballet studio. But the visuals still manage to give a slightly clearer picture of what happened than the novel. On the whole the art is wonderful. I only had a few quibbles. First, I didn't like the way Ms. Kim drew lips. She drew lines on Bella's bottom lip, presumably to make the lips more visible, but resulted in looking like someone punched Bella in the mouth. Also, I thought the shirts the boys were wearing looked odd. They bunched awkwardly and had unusually high, almost Mandarin collars. Finally, I had difficulty telling Carlisle and Jasper apart. This is somewhat understandable though since their hair color and build are similar. Otherwise, the art was almost perfect. I loved the incorporation of photographs into the pages. They added richness to the scenery. Additionally, the Cullen house was fabulous. A perfect depiction of the big, white Victorian described in the book. The artwork clearly conveyed the openness of the house, with lots of light and a sleek modern interior design. I've mentioned the use of color in the backstory scenes. The final prom scene was enriched with almost full color. You saw the bright blue of Bella's gorgeous prom dress and the brilliant brown and bronze of Bella and Edward's hair. There was also a beautiful twilight/sunset drawing that appropriately closed off the volume. The Twilight Graphic novel, volumes 1 and 2 are a must read for any Twilight fan. It can never replace Twilight the novel and really shouldn't be read unless you're already familiar with the story, but it brings the characters to life in a way that even the movies do not. I highly recommend it. Rating: 5 / 5 (admittedly biased rating; probably deserves a 4 but all Twilight-related books get a 5 from me)

    Well... 2.5⭐ I have read this just out of curiosity. Last year I read volumen 1, so why not reading the next one? The story adaptation sticks to the original. The illustrations are great and the reason I almost liked it.

    Young Kim did a great job with the art and the adaptation. The best is seeing Laurent look like Laurent, Jasper look like Jasper, Rosalie look like Rosalie, Carlisle and Esme looking almost as young as their adopted children. And of course Edward and Bella looking like they should and acting in character. I wish the upcoming Midnight sun was this faithful to the original, but I'm not getting my hopes high. Onto the incomplete New adult graphic novel now.

    I'm gonna keep this one simple. Once again, I enjoyed revisiting the world of Twilight. Bella is stubborn and a danger magnet. Edward is a creeper and yet I just don't care. And the cast of secondary characters are humorous and compelling. I really loved the artwork in the comic. I felt it brought the story to life in ways the movie failed to. My favorite scenes were the final pages which centered around prom. Overall, I found the vol. 2 to be an enjoyable read and loved the new format.

    the art was good but there's such a big difference between kristen stewart's bella and this bella. this bella was more involved in the story but i could see how she could be basically unable to function without edward. i couldn't see that with kristen's even if she were less involved in the action. also edward was less charismatic than robert pattinson's interpretation. the art matches the book but the actors make the characters easier to love.

So in other words brace yourself. *There may be inappropriate words such as curse words.* You have been advised in advance.* I had always been a fan of the Twilight series. Before the Twilight series got to be this huge deal and everyone was freaking out over Jacob or Edward, I was a small town girl who bought the whole series at my school book fair and zoomed through those books like they were brain crack. Now that there's actual comic books out of the series (or at least of the first book) my flames for why I loved this series so much has been rekindled. I'm a comic book dork and being a book fanatic like Belle from Beauty and the Beast, of course I need these two comics for my own library. I'm just glad the comics stuck a lot to how the book and the movie played out. I was really glad it stayed that way. Nothing is more horrid and soul gnawing than thinking something is going to turn out to be the exact opposite of everything of what you've already read and seen. But fear not because this is pretty dead on. Actually, I like the comic a lot better than the movie. So much better than the movie. Actually, anything is better than the movie at this point because the first one sucked! But thank goodness the comic stuck to the book. And because I know some of you are going to be wondering which guy I thought was the most attractive in the comic, I will always choose Carlisle because lets just face it, I'm that kind of girl. Giggty. But seriously, I will always be Team Guy Who Hit Bella with the Van! Overall though, I was really impressed with this comic book. I definitely hope they do the rest of the Twilight series in the comic book format!

    I decided that since I liked Twilight's graphic adaptation in the first volume, I thought I'd check into the second volume just to satisfy curiosity, and I have to say that it was a nice adaptation in conjunction with the former. This story picks up right where the last Twilight volume left off, effectively closing off the events of the first book's adaptation. Young Kim's illustrations are just as well done as the first volume, beautifully punctuated in color in spurts, and the B&W panels are q I decided that since I liked Twilight's graphic adaptation in the first volume, I thought I'd check into the second volume just to satisfy curiosity, and I have to say that it was a nice adaptation in conjunction with the former. This story picks up right where the last Twilight volume left off, effectively closing off the events of the first book's adaptation. Young Kim's illustrations are just as well done as the first volume, beautifully punctuated in color in spurts, and the B&W panels are quite nice, not only in arrangement, but also in presentation. It doesn't go into as much depth as the original novel, true, but it hits all the highlights of the original story and manages to be a fast, fluid read. I don't say much about the storyline in and of itself because I had issues with it, particularly in the second part where it has a lot of backstory, and tends to be clunky, but I think for the adaptation and adjustments to transition with the artwork, it worked for what it provided.

    Twilight the Grapic Novel is just one of many YA series to get a manga adaption in recent years and it's so under appriciated. It does Twilight justice while making the book it's adapoted from fresh and exciting. The artwork is beautiful and does the characters so much service.

The story itself cuts a lot of the fat from the original, while still being relatively true to it's source material. I feel like it's the more faithful adaption when put up against the movie. A lot of the faults of the narrative and characterization are pretty much the same as the Twilight novel as it is a direct adaption so I need not go over, again, my discontent with how the romance played out or the characters opinions. Overall, Twilight the Graphic Novel Part 1 and Part 2 are definitely worth picking up if you want to return to forks in a more visual setting with beautiful artwork and story line that gets straight to the point.

    Second graphic novel in the series. I like the art a lot! Love how some pages are color and some are not.

    I wasn't planning on reading volume 2 but I saw it in the library and thought 'why not?' I've had a bit of an epiphany. I really enjoyed reading about Carlisle's backstory with Esme and Edward and how he rescued them and built up his family. I wish that was what Twilight had been about. Anyway, it was still enjoyable.

This part covers Bella meeting the Cullen family and learning more about their backgrounds, particularly Carlisle’s, and how he turned Edward. After that, the family gathers in the meadow to play baseball, and during their family fun time, they’re approached by another small coven of vampires consisting of James, Victoria, and Laurent. After reading James’s mind, Edward realizes he’s a hunter and that’s he’s instantly become fixated on Bella. From there, the Cullens are completely focused on keeping Bella safe and finding James before he can hurt her. The first graphic novel volume was a little light on story and only represented the bare bones of what was in the novel, but this second volume is pretty much non-stop action and character development. I found that it adhered fairly well to what was seen in the movie version, but at the same time, it was nice to see a slightly different perspective on this story. However, even though it was very good, I still recommend reading the novels first, as they do have a lot more substance and detail. As with the first volume, the artwork was top-notch IMHO, bringing the characters to life in a different medium, while also matching pretty closely to how I imagined them while reading the novels. Young Kim is also quite talented at drawing out the romanticism of Edward and Bella’s relationship through her art. I very much enjoyed reading Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 2 and seeing it through new eyes, and I look forward to checking out the New Moon graphic novel adaptation as well.

    The art work was amazing just as in the first volume. I am also really glad the story/plot was kept the same as the book. I even think that it connected the movie to the books very well. The line that James says to Bella when they are at the dance studio is included in here and I thought that was pretty cool. The dialogue flowed and was well written. Most of it was dialogue straight from the book which was pretty cool. I hope that thy continue with the graphic novels.

One think that I didn´t like it, and that I remember from the book, was that they didn´t say anything about the other powers as in the book, they just showed the powers like in the movie, just Edward´s, Jasper´s and Alice´s, as if the other vampires has none, and though the other powers are not that visible I think that they should have put them in the novel, It wouldn´t have taken too much, I don´t know why they didn´t mention it. The drawings are so beautiful, I really loved it more than the movies and almost as equal as the book XD. I guess they give us a better look of everything, more close to what Stephenie imagined for the characters and places and all the situations, also I loved that they put in it the important things, in both volumes, They were so accurate, They were just like the book. Obviously more faster but as fun as the book. I can´t end this without congratulating Stephenie Meyer and Young Kim for such incredible history and graphics.

But fuck what they think. I used to be a Twilight fan and while I can see how it is so problematic and kinda lame/creepy and ridiculously funny in our 2020 era, I still appreciate the quality of excellent artwork and manga so this graphic novel gets a five star rating for the pure strength of its storytelling and layout alone. Eff it.

    This is an excellent re-telling of Twilight in a new media. I'm getting all the same vibes as I read, and the graphic artist is beautiful! They're hitting all the highlights, and leaving out the filler. It's perfect to get that hit of Twilight magic we all felt when we first read it

    While this one was better than the prior volume of the graphic novel the same downsides applied. It was really rushed, while it still incorporated a lot of the important quotes and scenes it was all changed around and wasn’t worth the read.
