Recommended Posts

Were y'all aware that former Hellblazer writer Denise Mina is adapting the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo books for Vertigo? With art by Leo Manco?

I suspect DC has missed the boat on this, as the Larsson fad seems to have mercifully passed. I hope the hackwork paid well, because it's a waste of Mina's talents.

Have you read it Tim?

I did not find it engaged me like they original adaptation did. Looks nice. Reads okay, but nothing doing. Would maybe have been worth pursuing as a reasonably priced paperback, but not for this price.

I've not read this adaptation. I read the original novel and thought it was pretty poor. It could be the case that Mina's adaptation makes something better of it, but that would have to involve a thorough reworking which would doubtless upset fans of the novel.

Would it upset them enough to stop them buying it, though?
