Like, you know, Stephanie Meyer? Get it? [Mar. 25th, 2009|12:23 pm]

Did you ever think about reading these books, but then thought:
"I don't really have the time/attention span/proper sort of pre-teen hormonal fascination with vampires"?
Now you can see what happens without taking an entire weekend of your life to wade through
approx. 4000 pages of descriptions on how pretty Edward is!
Read on.

Second Page, Cut for SPOILERZZZCollapse )

Not to step on any Twilight fan's indestructible vampiric toes. I did actually very much enjoy my weekend in Forks.
(as evidenced by my reading the entire series in a weekend)
It's just SO FUN to fun on it.

PS: I have NOT seen the movie yet. I will hit that up movie-rental-store style tewt sweeet.
Because I am the only person on earth who doesn't have freakin' Netflix.

I do heart you.

There are so many reasons I love you, Lucy!
1. You put me in a comic.
2. You put Oblong in a comic.
3. You distilled the entire Twilight saga into a perfect comic!

You must watch the movie. It's delish!

Complete awesomeness

You have completely summed it up! This is hilarious. And yes, it is just so fun to fun on it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading all 4 books and hate myself for it.

BUT DO NOT SEE THE MOVIE! Worst film ever.

I know exactly how you feel. I was all filled with twilight hate, but i couldn't seem to put them down. it was like some kind of crazy drug.
I'm better now. Rehab only took a couple of months as well. :)

Tragically, this is my life. I won't tell you how old I am because then I'd have to kill myself.

That is SOOO true. There was so much shame in my heart when I desparately searched the local book stores for the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th books.

I proudly wear my "Forks Spartans" shirt and "then buffy staked Edward, the end" shirts together. :)

That happened to me also.

Wow, that first comic sums up how I came to read to Twilight books. I'm a completist so once I start something I have to finish it. At first I thought there was only one book in the series. I finished the first book and then found out that there were more. I went back to library to read New Moon and was put on a waiting list for Eclipse. After a month of waiting I got fed up and just bought the third book. And I really want to read the fourth book to see if it's as bad (or worse) then people say it is.

Lucy dear! Believe it or not I just "StumbledUpon" you! haha. It reminded me I meant to comment... Also believe it or not... you caused me to get my own addiction. After reading your comics I decided "what they hey? Might as well give it ago" I CAN'T STOP! You're right... it's painfully addictive. I don't know how it happened. I've just started book 3.

So thank you Miss Lucy... perhaps we need to start a vampire appreciation society...

btw, I have you're book still and I'm determined to get you to sign it!

Miss you!!! :-)

Oh no, you fell! I read the first one and I had to force myself to finish it - I simply could not face another page of hormonal nuzzling and infatuation. It was like reading a twelve year-old's secret fantasy diary... I just couldn't do it. It felt so wrong!

By the way - the fourth book? Are you taking the piss? Seriously? That happens? If so, you are correct: "WTF?!"

Very awesome! I've been sucked into them, too, but make fun of them every chance I get. I couldn't take it seriously if I tried, so I just see it as a fun fad I can rip on and enjoy watching at the same time (I do like the soundtrack and I liked the movie better than the book). Your comic captured it's absurdity perfectly. Yay!

This is really great! Reminds me of how I couldn't put down the books after starting to read them, but in hindsight, they weren't really that great. ^^;

The birth scene is tragically accurate. XD

I was linked here, and I have to say that this comic was amazing. I haven't read it myself, because I am afraid of exactly the same thing happening to me.

Stoopid vampire won't put out?

Must be broke.

HAHAHA, that is exactly how it happened for me.

The book was sitting on my shelf for months, and I didn't even give it a second thought. Then one day, I decided randomly to pick it up. And the next thing I knew, I had read the entire series (and bought hardcovers of it) + watched the movie (bought it, of course) + the director's handbook within a ONE-WEEK span. I swear that book is like CRACK!

Now since then, I've listened to the audio books, watched the movie a million times, started reading FAN FIC's about the characters... and I even bought an Edward doll and started photographing him in various location.

For the record, I am a grown adult, and I haven't played with dolls (other than with my nieces) for at least 15 years. Until now.

Freaking crack book.

I had to comment on this just to say the same thing happened to my bestie and I. It's like some sort of insane witchcraft or something. I thought to myself, "man those books sound stupid, and I will never like them, but I will read them because otherwise I have no right to say that."

And so I read Twilight and thought, "christ, this is dumb," AND NOW I HAVE ALL FOUR BOOKS. EVEN THOUGH IT'S DUMB. HOW?! I also begged my bestie not to read it, but she didn't listen and the same thing happened to her. We're seeking treatment.

I just stumbled upon this and it is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. Your rendition of Breaking Dawn is genius. Pure genius.

I haven't read past the first chapter of "Twilight" but I think this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. I saw the movie, it was so bad, it made me think better of even attempting to get through the book. .

OMG, that was me! I'm 32 and asked my hubby for Twilight for Xmas. I read the entire Anne Rice vampire chronicles so I figured this was right up my alley. Didn't expect to get sucked in. I had all four books read within a week AND read the half-book available on her website (which I've now heard she's going to finish and publish).

Your art style is adorable, and I appreciate your humor. Definitely passing this on. ^_^
