Stephenie Meyer & Young Kim | Yen Press | CBR | ISBN 0759529434 | Pub March 16 2010 | 213 Pages (Monochrome) | 90.22 MB

The graphic novel adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's , the first book in her four-volume and runaway bestseller , published by Yen Press and adapted and illustrated by Korean talent Young Kim. The adjective is appropriate since Ms. Kim's monochrome artwork are just about perfect for the subject matter. Anyhow, just as the original books became best sellers, and the movie adaptation of these books box office hits, also set printing records: it sold over 66,000 copies in its first week, the largest debut for a graphic novel in the US, according to publisher Yen Press. It has already broken the record for largest first printing for a graphic novel with 350,000 copies. Of course you can ask any American teenage girl on the street if she has read Twilight and it would be safe to say she has (although we would much rather have them read many other books with better topics). If you're in the US you can ask your girlfriend or wife about it and chances are she's read it, too. And if she has, maybe now's your chance to curl and cuddle up with her with a laptop or e-reader and read the graphic novel.

Eng | RS & Hotfile | 4 CBR | Dupuis/Cinebook LTD | June 25 2008 - Oct 25 2009 | 286 MB Total

is a Belgian comic book series by Philippe Francq and Jean Van Hamme, published by Dupuis. Largo Winch started as a series of novels by Jean Van Hamme in the late 1970's, but stopped due to a lack of success and the huge amount of work Van Hamme had in the meantime with his comic books (e.g. ). When Francq wanted to start a series with Van Hamme, he revived his old hero, and reworked the novels into the first albums of the comic series. Later, new stories followed. The albums are more or less based on the same basic plot: someone is trying to harm Largo's company or to take control of it from him, and he has to fight that someone to ensure the survival of his holdings. All the stories of the series are published in two volumes, the first one being the one putting Largo in an impossible situation, and the second one letting him get out of it. In addition, both volumes share the same background color on the cover. The stories appear originally in French (among the most popular, in fact), and Cinebook has translated Largo Winch into English and has released them in single-issue books of 2 stories at a time. Graphic and explicit. Mature Readers.

Graphic design is a form of communication using text and/or images to present information. The art of graphic design embraces a range of mental skills and crafts including typography, image development and page layout. Graphic design is applied in communication design and fine art. Like many forms of communication, graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created, and the products (designs) such as creative solutions, imagery and multimedia compositions. The designs are applied to static media as well as electronic media, not always in the completed form. In commercial art, client edits, technical preparation and mass production are usually required, but usually not considered to be within the scope of graphic design.

Felipe Ferreira, Ivan Brandon, Rafael Albuquerque | Image Comics | ISBN 1582408475 | Aug 8 2007 | 100 Pages (c2c) | 73.08 MB

American comics readers have just started to notice the art of Rafael Albuquerque, but he's been working on comics in other countries for awhile. Before for DC Comics or any of his work for Boom! Studios on titles like and (the first issue now available for free from Boom!), the Brazilian artist had done work not only in his own country, but quite a bit for AK Comics, the company that publishes comics for the Middle East. One of those past works--one that Albuquerque calls his favorite--was released for American audiences by Image Comics: . It is a 96-page graphic novel about a street-level crime war in the fictional city of La Rambla. Previously titled "Rumble in La Rambla," the book is optimized for the graphic novel format and has become what the creators are calling the "director's cut" of the original series. Created the first time around by writer Felipe Ferreira with Albuquerque on art, the comic was reworded for American release by Ivan Brandon. Great, gritty artwork on a gritty graphic novel.
