Back in December, we told you that Denise Mina had taken on the project of adapting Steig Larsson’s work for graphic novels. The full comic of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo won’t be out until November, but as of yesterday ComiXology has a free first chapter preview (you do have to create an account to download it, but it doesn’t cost anything).
It’s hard to tell much from a single chapter, but the text is intriguing and the artwork is very detailed (you have to zoom to see it in the electronic version). Would it be even cooler if the whole thing looked like the cover? You betcha. But it’s pretty nifty anyway, and since it’s free, now’s the time to check it out if you’re curious.
