Comic-Con Souvenir

I apologize for the radio silence over the weekend, but I wasn't able to get internet (aside from my phone) while in San Diego. But, after a great weekend of seeing the madness that is Comic-Con and meeting lots of great readers, I'm finally home and able to share with you the big announcement that was made on Saturday.

Vampire Academy is going to be made into a graphic novel:

Pretty awesome, huh? That's the cover, and the full book will be out August 2011. For now, I'm just really excited to be able to share this with you and can't wait to see other artwork come in. I've seen a few samples of other pages, and everything they've done is really amazing.

Omg, how cool! And yes, I must agree with everyone who said Rose looks badass!

Please make Demitri more pretty
Could they do Demitri more pretty? I mean.. he looks ok... and I will buy the novel .. that is for sure… but prettier will be great.

About Dimitri
Please ask them to make Dimitri more handsome and we promise you to take the graphic novel on his debut on all the #1 lists.
Rose looks perfect…. But Dimitri looks like the bad guy on Batman... I do not want to be rude... but you know he does not look Russian to me.

Re: About Dimitri
I agree, please make them revamp Dimitri! This drawing of him really doesn't do your description of him any justice.
Jul. 28th, 2010 06:11 pm (UTC)
This is gud news!! Congrats Richelle...
Rose and Lissa look beautifull!!! Not sure about Dimitri tho....
Anywayz im looking forward 2 the graphic novel!<3

this ios super cool it really makes the story come alive! But a movie would be the best thing in my entrie life!!!!

:( This is depressing. I love Vampire Academy, but I can see it now. It's going down that same rode as Twilight... Soon It's just going to be a joke, with dolls and umbrellas and stupid fan merchandise. This is huge disappointment...
Aug. 10th, 2010 11:32 pm (UTC)
I agree with you 100%, I mean I am a fan of Twilight but not a huge one as to actually buy dolls. Only posters and shirts and stuff. But I am too very disappointed in this. I think this is worse then dolls and such.

The AWSOME cover!!!!!
I <3 the cover so much!!!! I like how Rose is alone this time, fully faceing the camera. the others are either her w/ someone or her facing upwards or downwards or sidewards, or whatever. The cover shows the breaking away from the boy drama--not saying it won't be there, and boy, I hope it'll be there--and everything and being an independent women/guardian/person.

so, just wondering, if the rumors about VA being made into a movie were true?
Jul. 29th, 2010 07:32 pm (UTC)
Wondering if we ever get to read the detailed exposition that Seth wrote for Georgie at the end of Succubus on Top?
Jul. 29th, 2010 07:45 pm (UTC)
Is it just me or does that little white speck on Dimitri's shirt kind of look like he's wearing a crucifix? NER!
Jan. 9th, 2011 10:47 pm (UTC)
Re: ?
I think it is cause it looks like a t.

What's in Rose's hand?
I love the cover! Rose and Lissa don't look the way I see them, but the whole cover blows my mind! I was also wondering about that red looking thing in Rose's left hand(the one next to Dimitri). What is she holding?
Aug. 1st, 2010 07:25 pm (UTC)
Re: What's in Rose's hand?
Actually, I think that's just her clenching her fist.

I love the idea of a graphic novel because I'm a total manga lover, but I must agree with some of the previous comments on several issues. First, I really hope this doesn't happen the way Twilight did. Twilight Graphic Novel almost made me want to gag because it was ruining something I love, and no, it's not the story. However, I'm a fan of VA so hopefully this will be done carefully with a lot of consideration. Another think is that I also wish Dimitri was more handsome. Not, 'pretty'- hell no, lol. That's more of a flaw in mangas and anime, all the guys looking like girls. I just more good-looking.

I Can Not Wait to Get It!
Rose wears her belt to the side too! *yay*
Jul. 30th, 2010 04:52 pm (UTC)
I definitely like the look of the graphic novel cover. Lissa and Rose look just how I imagined them while reading. I don't know about Dimitri yet but it might grow on me when I get the chance to buy a copy for myself.
Jul. 30th, 2010 09:13 pm (UTC)
HELL YESS!!! WOOPI! I LOOVE the Vampire Academy series, and for it to be drawn out for me.... omg im so happy. im an artist so it makes it seem all the much better Xd and hopefully they draw the parts where Dimitri is SHIRTLESS!! ^0^
Jul. 31st, 2010 03:03 pm (UTC)
It's not quite how I imagined any of them but GOODNESS do I love these character designs! And I am so pleased that Dimitri looks like, well, a man. As soon as I read 'graphic novel', I went, "Oh, fudge, here comes a really pretty, feminine Dimitri..." How pleased was I to see that he's been made very handsome and masculine!
Rose and Lisa look great, too! My word, I'm excited.

Great news
I recently read the series Vampire Academy and I was extremely pleased to find that I love them. I am a very skeptical reader and I criticize everything that I read. But with these I found only some things that didn't quite fit with my personal agenda. I am also a writer , though I haven't published anything,yet I do hope that somewhere in the coming year I will be able to finish my book.

Congrats on the success and please keep us in touch with further artwork involving the graphic novel. I love the cover and I am sure that I will equally love the contents.

Rose truly looks as I imagined her. Pretty Badass :D and Dimitri ...Well..he is a GOD. :D Lissa with her shy-ish posture just as I imagined her to be.

Hope to keep in touch. Although I know you have tons of fans that hope that too...

I was just wondering if you will make a movie about these books. The are really good and personally I like then better than twilight and I think theyd make a better than twilight .
Aug. 8th, 2010 03:38 am (UTC) funny.i cant wait !!

in regaurds to the vampire acadamy
Don't get rid of rose please I actually like her and she and I have alot in common. I really do enjoy reading how she is so willing to just jump right in and even thinking it through as she goes is awsome. I hate to think you are going to end this series with a spin off. With out rose and lisa I don't think it would play out correctly. They were your main characters off the get go and I always wonder what would become of them. I will admit though that my aticipation for your next book about them is intense. Keep up the good work and I also love the artwork here it is great and it also helps define the main characters. Thanks for the books.

I'm sorry but this looks horrible. I hate it 100%, they are all insanely ugly and none amount to what they are described to look like. Im really disappointed. There's no way I will read it. VA does not need to be a graphic novel its perfectly fine being just a novel. This is the worst idea. I prefer to go on what they are described to look like and picture them myself. I'm already pissed off with how Spirit Bound ended and what all happend in it, I didn't even want to finish it. I really really hope this won't happen. I don't even know what to say but that I really hate this.
