The Best Selling series of novels from Stieg Larsson featuring charismatic computer hacker, Lisbeth Salander, has recently found new footing with the release of the David Fincher directed Girl With The Dragon Tattoo remake. The newest incarnation of the novel will be led by none other than DC Entertainment and Vertigo Comics. The new graphic novel will feature Denise Mina’s writing with Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti’s art.
NEW YORK, NY, January 11, 2012 – Best-selling comic book and graphic novel publisher DC Entertainment announced today the creative team for the highly-anticipated new graphic novel based on Stieg Larsson’s international sensation THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Crime author Denise Mina will write the book, with the cover image created by Lee Bermejo and art from Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti. DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint is working closely with the estate of Stieg Larsson and Hedlund Literary Agency to adapt the book, which will be released in November 2012.
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.
Lisbeth Salander is one of the 21st centuries most charismatic female characters and she easily outshines anything Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Series could ever deliver. I look forward to seeing what the team over at DC Entertainment comes up with.
