    Never in my life did I expect to read a graphic biography of Stephanie Meyer. Though I laughed at first at the ridiculousness of such a presentation, and I thought that this was merely a gimic to sell more Twilight stuff for avid fans, the biography combined with the graphic illustrations was surprisingly effective. As the authors tell of Meyer's life and professional development, the illustrations depict dreams and inspirations that influenced her stories.

As the authors tell of Meyer's life and professional development, the illustrations depict dreams and inspirations that influenced her stories. Overall, this is a short work told from a vampire's perspective. It's great for those Twilight fans out there. Perhaps an academic audience could find other examples of graphic novels.

    I need more time to process what I just read. It's a very quick read and not what I was expecting. Love Stephenie Meyer and nice artwork & concept on this comic.

    Životem Stephenie Meyerové provádí veselý upír, který díky jejím románům spolu se svými upírskými přáteli zažívá báječné časy. Graficky ztvárněný životopis je jednohubka, ale zároveň hezkou formou podává informace o oblíbené i zatracované autorce. Jak se dostala k nápadu napsat ságu o upírech a jak to vypadá v městečku Forks se dozvíme i díky fotkám přimo z míst, kde se romány odehrávají.

    Told by a vampire, this quick little comic about how Stephenie Meyer came up with Twilight explains her early life, how she thought of Twilight and how it became so popular. There's also a "history of Forks Washington" and photos from all the Twilight landmarks in Forks definitely recommend for any huge fan of Twilight and Stephenie Meyer

    Let's be honest here: Stephenie Meyer has had a pretty boring life. She basically got married, had kids, and wrote a fantasy series about sparkly vampires. So needless to say -- with no scandals, divorces, addictions, adventures or the like -- "Female Force Bestsellers: Stephenie Meyer" is a pretty boring experience. But it's not just boring. It's surreally bad and poorly done, with ghastly art, a breathlessly dramatic style and a horrendously contrived framing device wrapped around a thoroughly Let's be honest here: Stephenie Meyer has had a pretty boring life. She basically got married, had kids, and wrote a fantasy series about sparkly vampires. So needless to say -- with no scandals, divorces, addictions, adventures or the like -- "Female Force Bestsellers: Stephenie Meyer" is a pretty boring experience. But it's not just boring. It's surreally bad and poorly done, with ghastly art, a breathlessly dramatic style and a horrendously contrived framing device wrapped around a thoroughly unexciting life story. According to the author Ryan Burton, Meyer was an oh-so-special and down-to-earth girl ("It seemed as though every OTHER girl was... DIFFERENT"), and of course way smarter than her peers (both in high school and college, she alone is raising her hand). She went to Brigham Young University in Utah, and a spider got eaten by a vampire. Whoops, that was the framing narrative, so forget about that. Anyway, she met some guy she had once shared a sandbox with, and they got married in less than a year. Three kids later, Stephenie had a dream about spying on a thuggish-looking vampire trying to make out with some blonde chick in a field (and she frankly looks like a dream voyeur spying on teenagers). She constructed a story around that dream, and ended up selling it -- and of course, it became a megahit and was adapted into a movie, took the world by storm, blah blah blah. Because the unadorned life story of Meyer would take up about five pages, Burton frames it: A shark-mouthed Dracula living in a cliche Transylvanian castle (complete with graveyard and howling wolf), who is apparently telling Meyer's life story to a gang of grunting naked nosferatu. Not only is this hilariously cheesy, but it provides the unintentional message that Meyer is carrying out the will of evil monsters. The biography oozes along at a glacial pace, with two whole pages devoted to shopping the manuscript around. The most mundane facts are written in a breathlessly melodramatic style ("Stephenie was 21 when she married Christian... also known as PANCHO") with lots of details that only her most fanatical fans would care about (who cares where the name "Stephenie" came from?). There's even a transparent attempt to equate Meyer with her self-insert Bella Swan (oh, how different and smart she is!). And the artwork is simply ghastly -- Meyers has an evil grin, sinister eyebrows, freakishly tiny hands, and she looks EXACTLY the same from the age of four onward. Her husband's head looks like a mediocre Picasso work, and the Twilight fans appear to be a bunch of large-breasted grannies, mad-eyed adolescents and... coffee shop singers? And as the final hilarious conceit, it's sprinkled with topographic maps, and a bizarre page in which UTAH appears in the palm of Meyer's hand. In short, the art makes the entire comic seem like a Stephenie Meyers acid trip. The funniest part is that they don't even get Meyer's characters right -- both Bella and Edward are washed-out blondes with wormlike lips, and Edward has spiky little fangs. Wha? "Female Force Bestellers: Stephenie Meyer" reads like a bad drug trip, with spider-chomping vampires, horrendous art and lots of surreal extras. Good for a laugh, but nothing else.

    This was an interested yet quick read. Things that I liked: This book / graphic / comic whichever you want to call it, was a quick read. I liked that this basically told the story of how Stephenie Meyer got her fame, but it also gives a little background into Stephenie's life going all the way back to birth and where she lived. I found it interesting. I thought that this was an interesting format to tell about the becoming of the Twilight Saga phenomenon.

I found it interesting. I thought that this was an interesting format to tell about the becoming of the Twilight Saga phenomenon. It even gave a little history about the Forks area and the Quileute tribe. Things that I didn't like: The vampire in the beginning that tells us about the story of Stephenie Meyer and eats a spider in the middle of it as a snack. That was a little weird. Overall: I would recommend this to any Twilight fan that hasn't read this, and anyone who would like to add this to their Twilight/ Stephenie Meyer fandom. I rated this a 4 out of 5 stars.

    Me: Did you poop? Mom: No. Me: It smells like crap. Mom: Well, it's in your room. Then I saw this on my bed, and it all became clear. My review is actually for zero stars, but I gave it one for making me feel better about myself, half a star because the illustration collage that depicted it as a cultural phenomenon had a drawing of someone getting the tattoo, and another half star for the so-stupid-it-must-have-taken-effort narration style.

    Pretty interesting way to find out about Stephenie Meyer's life. You get to read along as one of the oldest vampires of all tells you about Stephenie's life. After that, they have some true facts about Forks, Washington (where the Twilight books were set). I enjoyed seeing how the town of Forks has embraced being "Home of the Cullens". :)

    Numerous misspellings, for normal words and even the titles of classic literature. Not sure what the graphic designers were thinking either with some of the things they illustrate as I guess like excuses for transitioning the narrative. Not just bullying this because it's Twilight.

    The gist of it is that Meyer always felt different from the other girls; narrated by a sinister stereotypical vampire caricature: your decadentured Europreening uncle: all monocle, widow's peak, red sash and black cape.

    I don't know what happened but the data for this book has been erased. I can't remember what it was so I can't review it.
