The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo To Become Graphic Novel
'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' seems to find success everywhere, it appears. First with the three novels, and recently with the U.S. film adaptation starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. Now, the books are expanding into another genre: graphic novels. DC Entertainment's Vertigo division will write multiple graphic novels based on the best selling Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson. Crime author Denise Mina will write the book, with art by Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti. Lee Bermejo will handle the cover image. "We're thrilled to be adapting this incredible story into a series of graphic novels," stated Karen Berger, executive editor, Vertigo. "Denise, Lee, Leonardo and Andrea have such great passion for the material and stylistically they're a perfect match to bring it to comics life. Their beautifully dark and visceral work will certainly blow us all away." Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy is an international publishing juggernaut, with more than 60 million books sold worldwide and reaching the top of numerous best seller lists. Published by Knopf in the U.S., sales for all three books exceed 17 million copies, including digital sales of 3.5 million copies. Since September 2008, when 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' was published in hardcover, Larsson's books have been a constant presence on bestseller lists across America. 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' hits shelves this November.
