Whats with YA going going comic? It is, apparently, the new thing to do. James Patterson did it with his Maximum Ride series, even Stephenie Meyer with the Twilight series, and now Richelle Mead will join the parade with her Vampire Academy series.
You know what? I can't wait for it really. I bet those fight scenes will look awesome in comic mode, and if they make Rose a little less scarier (have you seen the cover above?) I could live with her comic self. Also, I'm not really sure about Dimitri, he doesn't look like my imaginary Dimitri, which looks a little like this:
Not too shabby uh? This anime character's name is Amon and he's from Witch Hunter Robin (anime series- one of my favorites). Ive used Amon in my mind when thinking of Dimitri cause they are both kick ass, silent, mysterious, wise, and hot as hell.
This is what Richelle Mead has to say:
"Pretty awesome, huh? That's the cover, and the full book will be out August 2011. For now, I'm just really excited to be able to share this with you and can't wait to see other artwork come in. I've seen a few samples of other pages, and everything they've done is really amazing."

August 2011!! I can't wait for the comic, would have bought it anyways if only to add it to my Vampire Academy collection, but truth is I'm genially interested in what the outcome might be.
