"Twilight" Writer Gets A Comic Book

Writer Stephanie Meyer is getting a comic book about herself...
The consensus amongst many comic book fans during the San Diego Comic Convention was that author Stephanie Meyers' "Twilight" movie "ruined" comic con. Is "ruined" too harsh a term? Comic Con is, after all, first and foremost a well oiled money making machine, and ever since the premier of the hit television series "LOST" Comic Con has slowly become more about pop-culture, and less about comic books themselves. So it should be of no surprise to anyone that when "Twilight" hit Comic Con, it was a huge success as far as fans of the film were concerned; but concurrently left a bad taste in the mouths of most comic book fans. If you were among some of the people that would have rather not seen Stephanie Meyers' venture into comic books, then maybe you should stop reading this article.
Blue Water Comics has as of late released a somewhat popularized comic book series entitled "Female Force," which has highlighted popular women in pop culture and told the story of their rise to fame through a biographical perspective. Many of which include Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, and Sarah Palin. It seems they will be adding the author of Twilight, Stephanie Meyer, to their successful series. The book will be a one shot, highlighting Ms. Meyer's subsequent rise to popularity and success and will be written by Ryan Burton with art work by Dave Macneil. The upcoming comic will be published in a 22 page format as well as a double sized collector's edition, and will be narrated by a "a very recognizable and iconic vampire;" somehow I don't think it's going to be Count Chocula.
So now that we have concluded that the author is officially branching out into comics; first with a Manga series and now with her own biographical story told in pictures; we will be seeing plenty more of Ms. Meyers on Comic Vine. Did "Twilight" really 'ruin' Comic Con? I don't think so. Comic Con was already about pop culture long before "Twilight" sunk it's teeth in. Was it obnoxious to see "Twilight" fans running around the convention floor screaming about Robert Pattinson at SDCC? I'm sure that for some people it was an aggravating experience; but hey, maybe it was a good way to get more girls to Comic Con, right?
