See the Twilight: The Graphic Novel Cover Art and a Story Panel

It was last summer when we first heard about the Twilight graphic novel coming from Yen Press, and today we got a first look at the cover art and a story panel from Volume 1.

The goods are courtesy of EW and include an excerpt from an interview with Twilight‘s author, Stephenie Meyer. For a full ten pages of panels and the entire Q&A with Meyer, be sure to pick up the issue of Entertainment Weekly that goes on sale this Friday.

Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1 goes on sale on March 16th (to coincide with New Moon‘s DVD release date of March 20th no doubt) with a first printing of 350,000 copies.

The artwork is by Young Kim, who has a fine arts background. Her vision of the characters is just one of the topics EW discussed with Meyer. Here are a few snippets from their conversation:

EW: The text of your original novel is boiled down so carefully that it doesn’t feel like anything is missing. Were you the one who did that?

SM: I was definitely involved. I didn’t do the original “script” for the book, so to speak. But when I got the dialogue with the images, I did a lot of tinkering. In a couple of places, I asked for missing scenes to be inserted. For example, the conversation in the car that Bella and Edward have after she faints in Biology.

EW: How does the feeling of reading the graphic novel compare to that of reading the original? Does it bring something new to the experience for you?

SM: For me, it takes me back to the days when I was writing Twilight. It’s been a while since I was really able to read Twilight; there is so much baggage attached to that book for me now. It seems like all I can see are the mistakes in the writing. Reading Young’s version brought me back to the feeling I had when I was writing and it was just me and the characters again. I love that. I thank her for it.

EW: When this project is done, are you done with Twilight?

SM: I can’t say that I am done with Twilight forever. I’m not working on anything new Twilight-related now, and probably not for a while. But there’s still a possibility that I’ll go back and close some of the open doors.
