Twilight Breaks Records

Shouldn’t be any surprise by the recently released graphic novel adaptation version of the popular Twilight series has broken records for sales of a graphic novel.

Little, Brown and Company released the following:

Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1 Shatters Graphic Novel Debut Sales Record

The graphic novel adaption of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight sold over 66,000 copies in its first week, the largest debut for a graphic novel in the US, according to publisher Yen Press. Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1, illustrated by Korean artist Young Kim, already broke the record for largest first printing for a graphic novel with 350,000 copies.

I’m not sure which is more surprising, this shattered a record or that the record is 66,000.  We’ll see how long it takes for them to run through the rest of the first print run.
