A Brand New Sequel To Stieg Larsson’s Millennium, In Comic Books

Millenium_illus_Runberg_Ortega_PT (1)The DC Comics Vertigo adaptation of the Millennium trilogy didn’t end up making much of a wave after its initial publication in 2012 and petered out into 2015.

The French adaptation from Dupuis however seemed to fare a lot better. So much so that it is spinning off into new material starring Mikael Blomkvist and Salander.

While there is a new Millennium novel recently published, written by David Lagercrantz, these comic books will not adapt it, instead tell their own stories, into their own comic book continuity.

The new books will be by Sylvain Runberg, the Franco-Swedish writer who wrote the previous Millennium adaptations for Depuis,  and newcomer artist Belen Ortega.

The first volume will be released next autumn.
