This season of Gossip Girl hasn't been my favorite so far, but that's not stopping the franchise from expanding into new mediums. It all started with Cecily von Ziegesar’s series of novels, and now our favorite Upper East Siders will be spotted at comic book stores.
Yen Press, the company behind the forthcoming Twilight graphic novels, will offer a new spin on the characters' high school lives in Gossip Girl: For Your Eyes Only. The comics are set to hit shelves in January 2010, and here's a big twist: the stories will largely focus on Blair and Vanessa, rather than Blair and Serena — though those flowing blond locks on the cover have got to belong to S, right?
Every now and then I'll flip through one of the GG novels when I'm wasting time at Barnes & Noble, but I'm not sure how I feel about a comic book. The whole idea sounds a bit like fan fiction to me (but with an animated Chuck Bass). Are you into this idea?
