Heads Up! Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 2 Is On Its Way!

I don't know about you, but I really enjoyed Volume one of 'Twilight: The Graphic Novel'. The art was beautifully done and the characters were far closer to what I believe Edward and Bella would look like than, say, their movie counterparts. 

Back in March 2010, I totally expected to get volume two within a few months of volume one, especially with volume one only covering half of the novel. Alas, it is now June 2011 and we have just received a release date from Yen Press for volume two. 'Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 2' will be debuting October 2011 in hardcover and ebook format.
To be completely honest, I think having to wait a year and a half for this volume might hurt it. For sure, I will read it, but can I invest another $22.00 in a series that may or may not get finished in a timely manner? I've been spoiled with manga series releasing three or four volumes a year and understand the differences between those and 'Twilight: The Graphic Novel', but I wish Yen Press had come up with more of a plan in terms of releasing them in a timely, scheduled manner... 

Anyway, to answer my own question, I will probably, totally buy it. I own the first one, why not buy the second? I just *really* hope that it concludes the 'Twilight' novel and doesn't stop right before the action starts in the third portion of the book! I don't know if I could wait another year and a half for another volume of 'Twilight'!

Oh, thanks for the heads-up. I was wondering when this was coming out. I read the first one, and thought the artist did a great job of capturing the characters and storyline in comic book form. I actually kind of prefer some of the graphic novel's renditions of the cast to the movie's!
