Twilight: the Manga sells over 66k copies its first week

Love it or hate it, Twilight is popular. And it's invaded our shores, with Twilight: The Graphic Novel, with art done by acclaimed manhwa artist Young Kim. In its first week, the book has sold over 66,000 copies according to the folks at Yen Press, an astounding number. They're claiming that it's the biggest sale for a graphic novel in the US, which is even more impressive.

At this rate, it'll be less than half a year before they eat through their initial print run of 350,000 copies of the book -- an unheard of number -- and be on to printing money for a long while yet.

While many of you are no big fans of the series (I've yet to read/watch it myself), I'm hoping it'll introduce readers to a number of Yen Press titles and hopefully, the rest of the manga section. So here's to hoping we see some upticks in titles like Soul Eater, Black Butler and Higurashi: When They Cry. I don't quite think the Twilight crowd is into Yotsuba, though.
