Ahh, judging books by the covers-- a better pastime than people would imagine. I've got two books to talk about today, and the first of them is...cue the Jaws music...the Twilight manga(-ish graphic novel thingie).
 

Yen Press is releasing 350,000 copies of this book on March 16th, and I'm already planning on using March 9th's Final Fantasy XIII release as an excuse to stay at home that day. Look, I haven't read or seen any of Twilight at all-- I have no legitimate reason to dislike the series itself (sorry, but "because my readers say it sucks!" doesn't count in my book). 
 
And let's face it, it's not like obsessive Twilight fans storming Hot Topic are that much scarier than obsessive Vampire Knight fans storming a gothic lolita booth at a con, really-- just different volumes of said fans. 
 
But something about the whole franchise sends a shiver down my spine, and not in the good way. 
 
If you wanted more information on it, though, Tony over at Comic Vine notes that you can hit up this week's Entertainment Weekly for the word.

Oh, I feel for G-Man. Such a brave soul to actually go to the length to actually make profiles for the two characters for that article. That or he's a closeted Twilight fan.

LAME! Cash cow for the publishers though. I shamefully have to admit the art looks kinda pretty. Then again I had the same reaction to Vampire Knight..."ooooohhhh pretty! Man this story sucks!"

There is one good thing about Twilight. 
 
Watch the movie with the Riff Trax (Mystery Science Theater guys).  Probably one of the most hilarious ones ever.

@FoxxFireArt: I think he's not. His daughter's a bit too young for her to have exposed him to it. 
 
@Addfwyn: I bet it's fantastic RiffTrax fodder.

All I have to say is why? There is already Vampire Knight and any other vampire manga out there. All of them are exactly the same except some are a bit more extreme (Vampire Knight) than others.
