#TBRTakedown Day 3 - been wanting to read this one for a while. I think this was better than the Twilight ones... Wish my library had the second part!
Here is what I have to say about this. Regardless of whatever my feelings are on the matter or what I say, clearly the cow is going to be milked no matter what else is going on.

If this still has the super lame font bs going on and horrendous balloon placement again I promise I will only give this a cursory glance at the bookstore and won't even try anymore. It's a graphic novel folks, get creative... It does. It's clear they don't even need to try. This will still sell like crack and no one will

I had NO IDEA they were going to continue the Twilight Saga in Graphic Novel form past the first book!!!XXDDDDD

These graphic novels are sooooo beautifully drawn. It's the only decent book-turned-graphic novel out there. Seriously, the people who did Vampire Academy, House of Night, and Hush, Hush should be ashamed of themselves. And I'm terrified of what they're going to do to my beloved Mortal Instruments and The Infernal De

That was thoroughly enjoyable. Since vol. 2 doesn’t exist, I think I’ll finish the story with the actually book 😍

So Young's gonna do the rest of the series? O.o I thought it was just gonna be the first novel...Oh well, i trust her anyways.

EDIT: 6/7/12

Whoa, cover's out already. I really like it but compared to Vol 1+2's beautiful meadow background, this one's kinda simple but fitting to the original book covers.


*If Young is actually doing this, Then that's amazing

So...this was really boring. I read the first two graphic novels years ago when they were still current but at this pace, I think it's better to let them go. Two things annoyed me in this graphic novel. First, this story is boring, I hated New Moon in the first place because of the stupid "gets broken up with and becomes an emotional zombie" plot and the amount of Jacob so it's not the fault of the graphic novel but even a book compiled of mostly pictures and little text couldn't save that awful ...more

Although I'm not really a graphic novel person, I AM really enjoying the Twilight ones! It helps me to remember the actual BOOK story versus the movies. The illustrations are really quite amazing and they capture the key elements of what happened in each installment! Can't wait for the next one!

LOVE LOVE LOVED ALL the books.. loved the series... wept for weeks with bereft when they were finished... need I say more?

I quiet enjoyed reading this as New Moon is one of my favourites from the Twilight series. But I found it really annoying that Bella just couldn't seem to live without Edward at first.

It also refreshed my mind after a long time...

Now pay attention, because this review gets tricky. I am a 25 year old heterosexual (I shit you not) male and I love these graphic novels. Why? Because fuck you, that's why.
Not really a whole lot to review since it's just New Moon in comic form. but I will say one thing, the artwork is just beautiful in these graphic novels and the main reason I will keep buying them.

I've been following the series for a long time. I'm enjoying it very well. Illustrations are lovely.

Believe it or not, but I had completely forgotten that I had ever read this book. I only noticed when I saw it in the library, wanted to read it to see how it was adapted this time and then saw here on Goodreads that I had already read and reviewed it. It is that forgettable.

Back then I read this in the bookstore, it is that short and uncomplicated.
Credit where is due: the graphic novel is way less annoying than the original book and the art is for the most part acceptable (except for the wolves

New Moon is my favorite of the Twilight novels. It is not because of Jacob, but because of the angst and torment Bella goes through, before finding redemption and Edward at the end.

I love the drawings in the graphic novels, especially Bella and her expressions and even her hair. However, I wasn't feeling the emotion and wreckage that I felt with New Moon or even the feelings that I experience with the the graphic novels of Twilight. It had the same great pictures and I enjoyed every minute of th

I sat down at the library today, resolving to read a few short books and lay my eyes on this. I haven't read the twilight (first book) graphic novels but I loved the look of this one and it looked like a quick read. I zipped through it and it has stunning artwork - Young Kim should be very proud and I want to steal her art skills so bad! It retold New Moon (part 1) in a clear, capturing way that presents the characters better somewhat more than the books and films. There are bits in colour and I ...more

Loved it!!

If you enjoyed Volume 1 and 2 of this then you'll love Volume 3 (Volume 1 of New Moon) !!

The drawings are FABULOUS!! I wish they were all in color but the black and white was cool.

And I found myself rooting for Jacob in this. He's such a nice guy. Not trying to push Bella away... well, except there at the end ;)

And just so you know, you wind up ending at the part where Laurent gets torn apart by puppies. And oh! Sam is sooo much more cuter in this. Ugs! I really didn't care for actor S

I feel really cheated , this graphic novel is 160 pages ONLY so why is New Moon divided into two volumes ? the story felt really rushed but I wouldn't have minded that if they just finished the whole thing ... I mean since you're rushing the story then you might as well put it all in one volume because a graphic novel that takes a year to come out should either be way longer than 160 pages or should be completely finished with the story .. this is ridiculous.. it feels too greedy for me , two ...more

If you love the twilight series this is an amazing edition to compare the books & movie and really get to see the characters come to life. *****Side Note: I feel like we will never get the 2nd New Moon Graphic Novel and probably never get the entire series in graphic novel form and it is terribly upsetting.*****

Just like the first graphic novels, this was beautifully done with fantastic pictures. New Moon was actually my favorite of the Twilight series so to see it come to life visually was stunning.

This is one of those books that I'm glad I own in hardcover and while not the most incredible story, this was well done and beautiful.

I can't wait to read volume II.

I've never been a completely big fan of new moon and the characters showing the readers that your life basically ends when your boyfriend dumps you blah blah. I do love the wolves and the artwork is phenomenal.

OMG!!! I didn't even bother looking this up since I didn't think they were gonna make it!!! Personally, I think the characters look WAY better in this book than they do in the movies. That's why I'm all excited. The cast that never was as I like to call em. (I'm not a Twihard at all!)

I love the graphic novels for the Twilight Saga...the art is so beautiful!
Some dialouge seemed off, unless i just need to reread New Moon. But drawings are gorgeous.

Disappointed about the delay. New release April 23, 2013.
Cover Interpretation: I don't like it. It's too blank. And why is Bella sparkly?

Όχι... δεν το δέχομαι... το αγαπημένο μου βιβλίο της σειράς μεταφέρθηκε με πολύ μέτριο τρόπο σε ένα novel που για μια ακόμη φορά -πολύ κακώς- σπάστηκε σε δύο μέρη, σπάζοντας και τα δικά μου τα νεύρα.
