“Girl” Books Will Be Graphic Novels

Think that Hollywood’s adaptations of Stieg Larsson‘s “Girl” books will be the end of it? Hah! The works are about to become graphic novels. DC Entertainment has secured “worldwide rights” to adapt the Swede’s output. In a statement ahead of the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany, the publisher behind Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman said its Vertigo imprint would work with Larsson’s estate and Hedlund Literary Agency to adapt the books. “Each book by Larsson will be presented in two graphic novel volumes that will be available in both print and digital formats,” the publisher said, starting with “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” in 2012.
