My thoughts :
Twilight: The Graphic Novel Volume 2 is an absolutely astounding adaptation of the original Twilight novel. Bella has just found out that Edward is a vampire. But, she’s already head over heels for him, so she accepts him, openly. As they get to know each other better, they become inseparable, Bella staying in his presence every single minute that she can. Edward finally introduces Bella to the rest of his family, and they all go together to play baseball. While they are playing, a trio of vampires, named James, Laurent, and Victoria, interrupt, and ask if they can join the game. The Cullen’s say yes, and at first, everything seems fine - until James catches Bella’s scent, and, suddenly, decides that he wants her for dinner. This starts a wild-goose chase that leads everyone from Forks, Washington, to Phoenix, Arizona, and back to Forks again. Young Kim did a fantastic job bringing The Cullen family, Bella, James, Laurent, and Victoria to life. I loved her artwork ; she managed to bring everyone to life in such an amazingly beautiful fashion, all while keeping very, very true to the original novel. Twilight : The Graphic Novel Volume 2 is a must have for any avid Twilight fan.
5/5

The graphic novels of Twilight look much more appealing to me than the regular novels. Stunning! I love comic books.
