DC Comics Releases Cover Art for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Graphic Novel

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Graphic Novel (Vertigo/DC Comics)

Last October DC Comics announced that the Millennium trilogy of crime novel thrillers by Stieg Larsson would be adapted into graphic novels.

Today, the publisher announced more information about the first in the series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which will be published as two volumes by its Vertigo imprint. The cover art for the first volume is shown (right; click for larger version).

The story is by Denise Mina and Leonardo Manco with art by Andrea Mutti. The cover was drawn by Lee Bermejo. The release date of this first volume in the series is scheduled for November 2012.

"We're thrilled to be adapting this incredible story into a series of graphic novels," Vertigo Executive Editor Karen Berger said in a statement. "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."

There are at least two other versions being considered, one by Belgian publisher Dupuis for the European market (a nine-volume adaptation, scheduled for release later this year), and the other a manga from Japan.
