The second volume of Vertigo's adapation of the Stieg Larsson novel "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" is set for a May 2013 release, DC's Source blog announced. The book will be written by Scottish crime novelist Denise Mina with art by Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti, and finishes up the graphic novel based on one of the most popular books of all time.
Last month we interviewed Denise Mina, who commented on the wide appeal of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo":
"I think that people are reading it for the story and that’s what’s great about it, and that’s the great thing about crime fiction is that the audience really comes with a sense of entitlement and if they’re not enjoying it they just stop reading they don’t feel like they have to plow on until the end so they can see the resolution. But you know like comedy shows sometimes everyone likes one particular comedy show most of the people don’t really think I have a sense of humor. Well a lot of the people who read this book didn’t read traditional crime fiction, thriller, chase books, and so I really reached another audience altogether."
"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Vol. 2" will be available in stores May 1st, 2013
