The Twilight films have been big hits at the box office

Stephenie Meyer's popular vampire book series Twilight is to be released as a graphic novel, it has been announced.

Twilight: The Graphic Novel will contain selected text from Meyer's original novel with illustrations by Korean artist Young Kim.

"The characters and settings are very close to what I was imagining while writing the series," Meyer said.

The book will be divided into two parts and the first edition is scheduled to be released on 16 March.

"I've enjoyed working on this new interpretation of Twilight," Meyer said.

"Young has done an incredible job transforming the words that I have written into beautiful images."

Meyer's Twilight Saga have been sold in nearly 50 countries and 85 million copies have been sold worldwide.

Each of the four novels in the saga has sold over a million copies in the UK and the first two films in the series have been box office hits.
