Yen Press to Adapt James Patterson's Daniel X Novels

posted on by Egan Loo

The manga publisher Yen Press has announced on Friday that it will adapt James Patterson's Daniel X series of science fiction novels into graphic novel form. The title character has the power to manipulate objects with his mind and to reshape himself, and he uses this power to take vengeance for his parents' murders.

Korean artist Seung-Hui Kye (Recast) will handle the actual drawing of the graphic novel project. His work will appear Yen Press' monthly manga anthology, Yen Plus, before it is published in trade paperback format next summer.

Yen Press and another Korean artist, Narae Lee, are already adapting another of Patterson's novel series — Maximum Ride — since last year. Both of these novel series have been optioned for film adaptations. Yen Press is publishing Takahiro Arai's Japanese manga adaptation of Darren Shan's Cirque du Freak novels and has revealed plans for Korean artist Young Kim's adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novels.
