Around four years ago we’ve had a couple of volumes of a City of Bones graphic novel before the project was unfortunately discontinued. The Mortal Instruments and graphic novels fans can now rejoice though, because Cassandra Clare and Cassandra Jean’s first volume of The Mortal Instruments: The Graphic Novel is going to be available on October 31! Have a look at the cover below:

Announcing that the long awaited Mortal Instruments graphic novel illustrated by @cassandrajean now has a pub date! October 31, 2017 – this Halloween! Available wherever books are sold, and containing a few extra scenes like Sizzy's first kiss in Central Park 😉 Amazon link in bio for further info. **********American/Canadian pub; no info about international sales right now though it will be orderable through Book Depository.
Cassandra Jean answered a very relevant graphic novel question on her tumblr:
Is volume 1 of the mortal instruments the whole book adaptation of city of bones or half of it?
Half of it. There was too much content to squeeze into just one volume, not without majorly cutting out pieces of the story, so City of Bones will span two graphic novel volumes. – Volume 1 has a brand new scene, and Volume 2 will as well!
We can’t wait to read the graphic novel and are very excited for the extra scenes, especially Simon and Izzy’s first kiss ♥
