Not Your Everyday Gratuitous 'Twilight' Roundup

By Michael Cavna


'FEMALE FORCE' (Bluewater Productions)

As November's release of the "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" draws nigh, expect those Twilight tie-ins to strike as quickly as Edward Cullen's canine teeth.

Among the post-Comic-Con announcements is the news that Bluewater Productions will issue a bio-comic of "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer.

Reelzchannel announced that the "Female Force: Stephenie Meyer" comic -- there'll be two versions -- will hit the stands right before the "Twilight" sequel's scheduled Nov. 20 release.

This week, of course, "Twilight" won 11 Teen Choice Awards, including "best drama picture" (tuning in for professional reasons rendered me near-deaf, by the way -- is there anything really louder than a tween-jet engine?!).

In other recent news, Edward Cullen and Bella Swan will now be available as Barbie dolls, the New York Daily News reports. No word on whether the Bella doll bleeds when bitten, let alone bleeds oh-so-metaphorically if she pines for a brooding vampboy.

And then there's the quickie-clip from the "New Moon" trailer due Friday:

There. Hope you're sated for a bit. This much "Twilight" news at once is nearly too rich for my blood.

Comments

From my reading on Cracked.com (generally NSFW) - where they loathe Twilight with the intensity of a million suns, which is why I love their commentary - I have found out that later in the series, there is an extremely graphic, bloody scene concerning Bella vomiting blood in the fourth book.

We can only hope the Barbie series doesn't go that far, either.
