Steig Larrson’s “Millenium Trilogy” to Become Graphic Novel Series

by Caleb Hamilton


International phenomenon and best-selling book series, The Millennium Trilogy is being adapted into a series of graphic novels by DC Entertainment’s imprint, Vertigo. The company will work with Steig Larrson’s (author of the Millennium Trilogy) estate and Hedlund Literary Agency to adapt the books. Find out more after the jump.

Larsson’s books will be presented in two graphic novel volumes that will be available in both print and digital formats. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo volumes will be released in 2012, followed by The Girl Who Played with Fire in 2013, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest rounding out the series in 2014.

“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-publishers of DC Entertainment. “It’s a distinct honor to work on a story that is already so popular with millions of readers around the world.”

“Stieg always liked comics and it will be exciting to see the unforgettable characters he created come to life on the comics page,” says Joakim Larsson, younger brother of the journalist and novelist whose untimely death in 2004 meant he didn’t see even the first book in the Millennium sequence published.

The Millennium Trilogy is currently being adapted American cinema, with the first of the films, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo due out this December.
