Vertigo's graphic novel adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, originally announced in October
, now has an official creative team and approximate release date. Coming in November 2012, the considerable crime comic qualified Denise Mina (A Sickness in the Family
), Leonardo Manco (The Executor
) and Andrew Mutti will bring the first chapter of Stieg Larsson's "The Millennium Trilogy" to comics with a cover by Lee Bermejo (Batman: Noel
). Vertigo plans to release adaptations of The Girl Who Played With Fire
in 2013 and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest
in 2014, though creative teams for those releases haven't been specified just yet.

"We're thrilled to be adapting this incredible story into a series of graphic novels," stated Karen Berger, executive editor, Vertigo. "Denise, Lee, Leonardo and Andrea have such great passion for the material and stylistically they're a perfect match to bring it to comics life. Their beautifully dark and visceral work will certainly blow us all away."
