Comics: DC's Vertigo Imprint to Publish Millennium Trilogy

DC Comics' adult-oriented imprint, Vertigo comics, has recently announced they have secured the worldwide rights to a graphic novel adaptation of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy. The books The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest have sold nearly 30 million copies worldwide and have spawned three Swedish film adaptations and are currently in process of being adapted for American cinemas.

The graphic novel adaptations will be released yearly starting in 2012 and will be presented in double sets. In keeping with Vertigo's cutting edge marriage of print and digital, the trilogy will be available in both formats.

“The intricate characters and stories Larsson created in the Millennium Trilogy are a perfect match for the graphic novel format, where we can bring Lisbeth Salander to life in entirely new, visually compelling ways,” stated Dan DiDio, Co-Publisher of DC Entertainment.
