Robert Pattinson has a comic book!

Some exciting news for all you Robert Pattinson fans (so, most of you, right?) … Bluewater Productions (the same folks behind the Female Force comics, including one on Stephenie Meyer) are featuring Robert Pattinson in a new issue of their Fame comic series.

But that’s not all … Twilight Parents Examiner/Twilight Moonlighter (and a good friend of NNT!) Kimberly Sherman is the WRITER of the comic!! Check out the news via E! online:

The second installment of Bluewater Productions’ new comic book line, Fame, features none other than your favorite sparkle vamp. The 32-pager doesn’t hit comic book stores and until May, but E! News has the exclusive first look.

The issue, written by Kim Sherman and drawn by Nathaniel Ooten, with the cover created by Juan Mar Studios, delves into the star’s music, modeling and, of course, those dreamy roles he played in the Harry Potter and Twilight movies.

“I chose to conceptualize A-lister Robert Pattinson from a unique perspective, immersing the reader into the life of the talented actor beyond his most famous role,” Sherman says.

Congrats to Kim!! And we can’t wait to see the comic for ourselves!


Cool vampire comparison chart!

Ever wondered if any other vampires sparkle? Are they all as hot as Edward? Who has fangs and who doesn’t?

The Open Book Society has tracked down a fun comparison chart of vampires through time, listing everything from weaknesses to plot similarities; Twilight to Count Chocula.

 The full chart can be seen on Wikipedia.

“A Winter’s Tale” Fan Fiction Winners!

Firstly, I want to apologize for the delay … but here are the winners of our Nov-Dec ’09 Fan Fiction Challenge.

For this challenge, we asked you to write a story that takes place in winter.  The winners each get to post this banner with their stories.

First Place: Snow on Italian Rooftops-Justice by Natilie Sawada

This short story gives us a glimpse into Jane’s mind, as well as what the Volturi are up to.

Second Place: The Wise of These Days by The Sound and the Fury

This is a sweet story showing a post-Breaking Dawn Cullen Christmas, inspired by The Gift of the Magi. I like the way this story reminds us that just because Bella became a vampire and joined the Cullen family, it doesn’t mean every day will always be sunshine and roses.

Third Place: December by Cas2986

Taking place during the heart-breaking Christmas of Bella’s senior year, when the Cullens were away, this story is written from Charlie’s point-of-view.

Honorable Mention: New Moon’s Christmas by HollySACullen

And here is Bella’s point-of-view of Christmas without Edward.

Congrats to the winners! See past challenge winners here, and be sure to check out our January-February 2010 Challenge … the deadline is February 28th!

Preview: Twilight in Forks Documentary!

Okay, I confess … when I first heard about the Twilight in Forks Documentary, I was skeptical. I mean, really? It sounded a bit like someone just trying to make some $$$ off the whole Twilight phenomenon. But after watching this preview via Kaleb Nation, I think I may actually check out the full documentary. Of course, I AM curious if the documentary isn’t all love for Twilight. Living in the Pacific NW, I can tell you that not everyone in Forks loves the attention it’s getting these days — despite how good it’s been for the local economy. (Forks was a struggling logging community pre-Twilight … no one will deny that the fandom has definitely helped the town stay afloat.) Anyway, I’ll stop making commentary and get on with it … here is Kaleb’s video blurb about Twilight in Forks, which includes the documentary trailer:

Stephenie Meyer’s new recommendations!

Stephenie Meyer has updated her official website this morning with a bevy of recommendations.

For books, she recommends The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows. Meyer writes:

It was one of those books that feel absolutely perfect and satisfying, and when you finish it you sit around wishing that you could find another book just like it.

Meyer also recommended the band Metric, particularly their 2009 album Fantasies.

And she has nothing but praise for the upcoming book-to-movie adaptation Dear John, based on a Nicolas Sparks novel:

I will confess, I cried. Also, I discovered Channing Tatum, who I’ve somehow missed until now. Likey. Lots. Amanda Seyfried is entrancing as always, and the chemistry (chemistry is always the crux of a movie for me) between them is lovely. Though the chemistry between Channing Tatum and Richard Jenkins (who plays his father) was my favorite part.

Read all of Meyer’s message on her official website.
