    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 review 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.

    There's not much to say about this graphic novel. You either like Twilight or you don't.

    Más de lo mismo; y por eso no quiero decir que haya estado mal, sólo que sí, es lo mismo que la novela, pero con dibujos. Y es que ese es el punto, ¿o no?

    4.5 stars I think I actually enjoyed this one more than the first! It was fun to SEE all of the parts that the movie left out or changed... I will definitely check out the next one if my library has it! But I don't really see myself buying these...

    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 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)

    Graphic novels have always a feel-good about them. The illustrations were simply a fab but remember, it's still Twilight.

    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.

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 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 está dividido en dos novelas gráficas, la primera estuvo bien, pero esta segunda parte le di 4 estrellas porque es cuando la historia se pone más emocionante, sin lugar a dudas al volver a leer algunos diálogos, se me hizo menos creíble que cuando leí la novela por primera vez, sin embargo sigue teniendo ese algo que me hace disfrutar leerlos, seguiré siendo #TeamJacob.

    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.

    Second graphic novel in the series. I like the art a lot! Love how some pages are color and some are not. I think it's kinda crazy with these books being so short you have to wait like a year in between each one!! Great for Twilight fans. http://angelasanxiouslife.blogspot.co...

    The artwork was still as gorgeous as ever! I didn't like this volume as much as the first one, though. I still really liked it, but I had a few issues with it. At times the dialogue felt stiff or cheesy. It didn't feel this way in the first one or maybe I overlooked it. The actual lettering in some parts was kind of small and the design of the font and everything felt like it did not really fit it.

They also changed some things around from the actual story, which I wasn't unhappy with but it was odd. I can't remember anything big they may have changed from the first volume, but I haven't read Twilight in a while. I did really enjoy how they drew both Bella and her mom in the scene where Bella was leaving her dad because of James. I thought that was clever. I liked the prom pages. It was beautiful and so so sweet. Some of the dialogue was great and I enjoyed the art (I will say that a million times because it's soooo pretty) . Anyway, overall a great novel but just not as great as the first one. I'm still looking forward to reading the New Moon ones.

    Just as good as the first. Though there is a typo in it. You would think that since there are hardly any words per page it wouldn't be difficult to spell check. Anyway... Lol! Tiny rant over.

    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.

    Finally I read the second part XD It was so nice to read again Twilight basically :v And I found some things that I havent noticed before but that didnt take all the magic of the whole history, I have to say that sometimes Bella exasperates me XD Well anyways I like her a lot, Also Edward sometimes was kinda possessive, and with both I get it and I love them, but still, it is kinda weird for me XD All the Cullen family is so nice and cool, I just love everyone.

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.

    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

    Now that Bella knows exactly what Edward is--a vampire--she must reconcile that fact with the love she feels for him. While Edward is concerned about the constant danger he is to her, a greater danger lurks in the woods of Forks. A danger that Bella may not be able to escape. Twilight The Graphic Novel Volume 2 is a beautiful addition to the Twilight family. Just like its predecessor, Volume 1, it takes the love story between vampire Edward and mortal Bella to a new level for fans of the books.

While Edward is concerned about the constant danger he is to her, a greater danger lurks in the woods of Forks. A danger that Bella may not be able to escape. Twilight The Graphic Novel Volume 2 is a beautiful addition to the Twilight family. Just like its predecessor, Volume 1, it takes the love story between vampire Edward and mortal Bella to a new level for fans of the books. I strongly believe it is truly meant to be an addition to anyone's Twilight collection, rather than a stand-alone book. Normally, I am not a graphic novel/manga fan. I have nothing against the genre, it has just never been something that appealed to me. I bought the first novel merely because I saw it as a re-imagining of the original book and I'm a sucker for Twilight memorabilia. I wanted to put it on my shelf and look at its pretty cover. As a matter of fact, I had it for quite awhile before I even read it. But once I cracked it open and read it, I was very pleased. I felt like Young Kim stepped into my head and saw the characters and their surroundings like I saw them in my head. My favorite lines of dialogue were there as well. Volume 2 has done exactly the same thing for me. Kim's artwork is amazing and beautiful, and those one-liners I memorized in the book are still there. My only complaint with Volume 2 is how little color there is. While this is the case in the first book as well, I felt like there were several places in the book where a splash of color would have added to the beauty of the art. There is a lot of color added near the end, I just wanted to see it sooner. Other than that small detail, I wouldn't change a thing. Edward is gorgeous, Bella is stunning and the Cullens look amazing. Absolutely breathtaking! I do NOT see these graphic novels as a replacement for my beloved book, but instead something I can turn to when I want a quick "refresher." And the covers do look pretty on my bookshelf alongside my other books. As a matter of fact, I am hopeful that Young Kim will add to the graphic novel collection by completing the other novels in the Saga.
