When we last checked in with Denise Mina, she had just finished working on Vertigo’s graphic novel adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. In a recent conversation, she revealed that she’s already working on the next two books featuring Lisbeth Salander:
Will you be working on the rest of the Millennium Trilogy graphic novels?
Denise Mina: Yes! I’m writing the rest of them too! I’m halfway through the script for The Girl Who Played With Fire and moving on to The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. I’m loving it. It’s great to be writing comics again and with an adaptation I can worry more about the visuals and less about the narrative arc. The books are so dense it’s a matter of cutting back and cutting back. The second part of Dragon Tattoo will be out soon.
