DC Entertainment is going to release graphic novels in print and digitally based on Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy.
The company's Vertigo imprint is set to release the first book The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in 2012, with sequel The Girl Who Played With Fire following in 2013 and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest in 2014.
Here's what DC Entertainment had to say.
The intricate characters and stories Larsson created in the Millennium Trilogy are a perfect match for the graphic novel format, where we can bring Lisbeth Salander to life in entirely new, visually compelling ways,” says Dan DiDio, co-publishers of DC Entertainment. “It’s a distinct honor to work on a story that is already so popular with millions of readers around the world.
Stieg's brother Joakim Larsson also weighed in on the subject.
Stieg always liked comics and it will be exciting to see the unforgettable characters he created come to life on the comics page,” says Stieg's brother Joakim Larsson.
They have not picked out a artist or writers yet for this project.
What do you all think? Will it be good as a graphic novel?
