    Default Two TV Ads For Vertigo\'s Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Comics

    Vertigo have cut and released two TV trailers for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Denise Mina, Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti's adaptation of the novel by Stieg Larsson. Volume 1 of the book hits next week.

    Note: "Lisbeth Salander is a superhero for grown ups." So that told you.

    Wait. So not only is the adaptation a year past the point of relevancy, but it isn't even for a complete story?

    I would have thought something more along the lines of "the embodiment of Stieg Larsson's fantasies".

    Still enjoyed the books, though.

    It is the worst "drawn" graphic novel I ever saw!!! How could you name this "thing" as a "graphic novel" when in all pages you can see a lot of "crtl-c/crtl-v" drawings??

    It's a true SHAME for Vertigo to have such book in its catalog!!! WTF Vertigo????? You want to prematurely die??????

    A superhero for grown ups, apparently.

    The marketing people at Warner Brothers hadn't come up with the idea yet. They were still sobering up from celebrating the success of advertising the Green Lantern movie via ugly ads printed on the covers of comics.

    Because when you're advertising a movie, the best people to target are the ones who are already most likely to know about it.

    SONY released the movie. Which makes DC's decision to even produce this "book" more puzzling...

    Well it's Vertigo. The publishers have a different mindset. They're not even as corporate as DC.

    It's a story with rape that's not written by Alan Moore!
