Vampire Academy Graphic Novel Coming Next Year!

Last week I wrote about the end of Richelle Mead’s incredibly popular Vampire Academy series, and you guys were pretty bummed that it was all over. Well I’ve got some great news for the VA fans out there! Not only do you have Bloodlines to look forward to (read about that here) but you also have a Vampire Academy graphic novel on the way! Woot!

From the sounds of it, the graphic novel will follow the same story as the books. The product description is the same as the novels, so you guys aren’t getting a new story, but amazing artwork to go with the story you know and love so well.

“Two races of vampires walk our world. The Moroi are alive and wield elemental magical, while the Strigoi are undead and evil–feeding on the innocent to survive. Rose Hathaway–a half-vampire with poor impulse control–is training to be a bodyguard for a Moroi princess. Learning to decapitate and stake is hard enough, but Rose’s real danger may lie in an illicit romance with one of her instructors…”

Emma Vieceli is the lucky artist behind the upcoming graphic novel. If you’re worried that she won’t do your favorite series justice, fear not, according to her bio she kicks ass.

“I’m a professional illustrator, writer and comic artist based in Cambridge in the UK. Past clients include: SelfMadeHero, Marvel, Image, Random House, Toykopop and FuturePublishing.

My recent key releases include: Much Ado About Nothing (2009) for SelfMadeHero, Comic Book Tattoo (2008) and Violet (2008) – a children’s series I wrote and illustrated for David Fickling and Random House as part of the DFC. I’m also currently one of Imagine FX’s panel of artists. For a full list of titles I’ve worked on, please check the Scrapbook page.”

Like I said, she kicks ass. For more info on Emma and pictures of her artwork check out her official website.

Sadly, the graphic novel won’t come out until August, 2011.

So, what do you guys think? Are you fans excited for the graphic novel?

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).

    already not happy :o(……clearly she hasn’t read the novels properly rose doesn’t have long long hair , she has short/shoulder length hair at least in the first novel as does all guardians so that people can see the nape of their necks , or at least wear their hair up so that other moroi can see whose guardian they are by their tattoos and also so people can see the tattoos from how many strigoi they have killed

      Actually that’s not correct. Rose has always had long hair that she doesn’t not want to cut. She knows that’s what most guardian women do which is why she tells Dimitri that she doesn’t want it cut. He replies that she doesn’t have to and that she should just wear it up, because he also likes her long hair.
