"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?

i hope its about her being attacked by a group of vengange seeking none glittery vamps

I honestly don't see what all the hub bub is over Twilight.  Granted, somehow I did see the first movie and have yet (read never) to read the books but is there something I'm missing here?

I find it sad how many middle aged woman are into Twilight.  It is almost as bad as the  40ish woman getting tattoos and go clubbing with the younger girls from th eoffice.

Obviously as someone who cannot attend Comic Con I cannot comment on the mood in regards to the whole Twilight frenzy... what I can comment on is that it would take the A-Team to make me sit down and watch it (in other words, I would have to sit down with Hannibal, Face, BA and Murdoch, crack open a few cans of Stella and get hammered before viewing). I can appreciate that fans of comic-books may feel a bit miffed at having what is no doubt a special occasion sullied by the Ms. Meyers vampire crap fest (oh, have I let slip I dislike Twilight). To be honest, I have a problem with modern vampires in general. I blame Anne Rice and Joss Whedon. Please Buffy fans, don't bother sending me death threats, I've already had a bunch following a review for a Buffy DVD series on Amazon

Man, I'm starting to think fanboys really are afraid of girls.
I've never read the books or seen the movies  but as far as I can see Twilight just expands the fandom base and that's good.
More power to them!

My ghirlfriend loves it and I make fun of their vampires (and everything else)
but I don't make fun of what they are doing as far as marketing and their fanbase.

Comic companies, game companies need to learn from them.

Twilight was no more obnoxious or out of place than anything else at the Con this year.  The biggest PIA was by far the inability to walk anywhere near the video game aisle where Sony, MS and the rest setup shop.. or the massive traffic jams near the Paramount booth (is that too light a word to describe their area?).  If only a few of the folks there for Twilight found something else they were interested in, then more power to them.

Twilight = the death of the true vampire.  Rest in peace Dracula and any chance of Blade getting his own series again.  Though if it were about killing the Twilight cast it might be a big hit.

I hate vampires...that's all I will say

Posted by johnny_spam

Screw these romantic vampires and the people who made them. A vampire sounds like a serial killing rapist drug addict and all these vampires are made fluffy.

Fans are paranoic!
Twilght will be vanished of their memories Tomorrow, like Joels Schumacher' Batman or Generation X movie.
Harry Porter is worse than Twilight!:P

Nice bit of humor with Count Chocula, Babs.  

Posted by JillPantozzi

I really don't understand all the comic folks hating on the Twilight crowd. You don't like it? Fine. Don't make fun of other people for it. Remember how people made fun of YOU for liking comics? Bad form.


That being said, the show runners should have scheduled the Twilight panel first thing in the day so it wouldn't disrupt people trying to see the events that came before it.

i dont know about the book, but that movie was complete garbage.

Posted by Sparda

If Count Chocula was actually narrating the comic, I would pick it up.

Posted by The_Martian

LMAO! I love that sign.

Posted by Vindellavon

There goes the last bit of respect vampirism ever had. R.I.P Dracula, Angel, Lestat, and rest.

As would I. Guest appearances by Boo Berry and Franken Berry would make this some kind of EPIC.
Edited by srs bsns

Well the sign is true. Can't they get their own 'Con somewhere very far away and leave us alone? :( Now I saw someone mentioned Blade...

Bloody 'ell! I tried reading that garbage. I also tried to understand Twilight fangirls. If you like something, then go ahead and like it, just don't be all righteous and irritating about it. Crikey. They act like those vegans with a superiority complex that try to shove their Twilight down your throat every chance they get and if you decide to say no they get all pissy like a woman deprived of chocolate.


Argh, sorry, but I hate Twilight and it's hype. Just be quiet and accept people are going to make fun of it and stop being so sensitive!!!!!!!!!!!

Just for the non comic movies.

Love Blade. that's what the movie should've been.
Blade slaughtering vampires
@#$% Twilight! Twilight did ruin Comic Con!!! AVGN aka James Rolfe couldn't get in too see something thanks to yall Twitards!!! @#$%!!!
Posted by TheBug

I think its odd that the Female Force comic has gone from Hillary Clinton to Stephenie Meyer, but whatever.

In 6 years Twilight will be gone. That guy should just put down the sign, and enjoy the Con. He's fighting a losing battle. We just gotta wait this trend out.

Posted by GreenGriffin

Twlight is just the lite version of TrueBlood, now that is how Vampires should be done. Doesn't matter to me, i'm more of a Frankenstein fan myself.

I don't know if I would say Twilight RUINED Comic-Con, but I think Phillip DeFranco said it best:
"Finally comic book people have a nerd group THEY can make fun of!" LOL

I saw this announced a week ago or so, and I said roughly this back then...

"Twilight" is the magnum opus of the quasi-emo/goth crowd. This is what they use to fire their kill-shot directly into the stomach of every fan of the history, mythology, lore, whathaveyou of vampires that began with Count Dracula. This movie and it's followers are the very antithesis of what you felt as a kid watching the classic "Dracula" movie, or "Bram Stroker's Dracula", or even "The Lost Boys" for god's sake, when those monsterous, fanged demons rose-up from a coffin, struck like lightning, and drained the blood from their still-living vicitms. "Twilight" is a gut-shot delivered to a pre-existing gut-shot, but one filled with hate rather than the wonderufl entertainment thrill you get from watching a real, classic vampire movie, or read a real, classic vampire book. The blow that "Twilight" delivers is like the powerless slap you might get from a male Twilight fan; it didn't hurt at first, but over time, you realize you were just slapped by one of those damn kids, and you let them get away with it because you'd otherwise physically destroy them. Now that they've gotten away with it, they're off making more books and movies and even biographies because the idiots love the material so much, they must get inside the diabolical mind of this woman and absorb her, too.

That's one HELL of a gut-shot, folks.

the words unhealthy obsession come to mind. i have alot of friends who are in to it and i cant help but feel paranoid if im in the way of them and their book. you can like something; you can buy something you like; but please dont run over your friends to get the latest special eddition twilight book. the last thing i need is squealing girls of all shapes and sizes moving in on my comic time.

Can Stephanie Meyer just shut up already? She's obnoxious. And the Twilight series is over. Now all we have to do is wait for the rest of her crappy movies to come out. 
 
And that's it.  
 
I'm seriously getting so sick of this woman. And the fact that theres a manga AND now a comic coming out? 
Ugh please. I can feel the vomit rising up from my throat now.

I like twilight, not as much as some people but I don't know why there has to be a comic about steph meyer herself. And I know there are a lot of fangirls who can get really annoying, but I get just as pissed with all the haters who are just as bad. I mean get over it, if you don't like it, don't go near it.

Posted by aztek_the_lost

I've refused to allow myself to join this craze by shunning all things Twilight and so far I haven't felt like I'm missing out on anything...one thing I do have to say about Stephanie Meyer (never knew the name of the author until now) is that even if she is responsible for the worst fad since pet rocks sweeping across the nation, she DOES NOT deserve to be put amongst history's greatest women for it, not that I necessarily think Sarah Palin or Michelle Obama, etc. have done anything necessarily great either so in that sense I couldn't care less that she gets an issue of Female Force to herself.

That's just the thing...It keeps coming near ME. Movies? Fine. Books? Whatever. Now I have to see this celebration of all things mopey and romantisad encroach upon Spider-Man's shelfspace?! No, sir or madame, I won't keep quiet about it. Not only is it a "Twilight" comic, it's a comic about the friggin' AUTHOR. And they're telling us all, including the impressionable youth, that she's some kind of Force for Female Liberation?! WHAT?! I am sorry, but dialogue that easily could have been lifted from the quiet, blue-haired girl with the Jack Skellington purse's DIARY does NOT an award deserve! Bah, I say! BAH!!! Good day!

Maybe i read G-Man's article wrong but i dont think its a comic book of 'Twilight', its of the author Stephanie Meyer

@The Crimson Nutcase  
Haha noo I know its just the author.. 
what else can she do if its not Twilight though. 
Fuck Twilight  
Worst. Series. Ever

Posted by Toastalchemist

EWWW! They think Meyer is up to par with Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin? Sure, I never supported both of those women but politicians are more influential than a shitty writer.

Blasphemy! Nothing beats Twilight. The holocaust rivals it…Oh alright…even I thought that was in poor taste. Hah! But still, nothing beats it for pure juvenile suckage.  The quality is that of a glorified fan fiction. Saying Twilight ruined Comic Con is a little much, but saying Twilight killed vampires for a whole generation of fans is pretty damned spot on. As Craig Ferguson said, "Oh I'm a vegetarian vampire that cares about people. Ooooh! That's not a vampire, that's a freaking Jonas Brother!" I miss that days of vampires having balls.

Its an exciting time for Twilight fans so...why not?

Posted by RaptorFratBoy

Yes...Why NOT clown the entire franchise? It's a good time...

I would say that this is conclusive proof that God hates us all.
