When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistible and impenetrable. Up until now, he has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret...
I know that this one isn't manga, but I read this a while a back and hadn't had the chance to review it, and since it is a graphic novel, I decided it should work. There isn't much to explain or say about Twilight: TGN, especially if you have read the books, seen the movies, or pretty much know the story of Bella and Edward.
The art made this book for me because it was so pretty. It is in black and white, but it has some color in it which makes specific scenes stand out. While the dialogue doesn't really explain nearly half of what happens in the actual book, I was entertained by looking at the drawings alone.
I do want to look at the next books in the series, for the art pretty much. I already know the story and I did love it at one point, but I probably won't be re-reading it, so this offers a fun alternative.
