DC Comics announced this morning that artists Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti will join crime writer Denise Mina on the adaptation.
Lee Bermejo will provide cover illustrations for the book, which will debut in November under the publisher’s Vertigo imprint. DC is working with the estate of original author Stieg Larsson and Hedlund Literary Agency to adapt the source material.
“We’re thrilled to be adapting this incredible story into a series of graphic novels,”
said Karen Berger, executive editor of Vertigo.
“Denise, Lee, Leonardo and Andrea have such great passion for the material and stylistically they’re a perfect match to bring it to comics life. Their beautifully dark and visceral work will certainly blow us all away.”
DC is adapting all three books in the series – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest – as two-volume graphic novels. The sequels will be released in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
