Not Your Everyday Gratuitous 'Twilight' Roundup

'FEMALE FORCE' (Bluewater Productions)

As November's release of the "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" draws nigh, expect those Twilight tie-ins to strike as quickly as Edward Cullen's canine teeth.

Among the post-Comic-Con announcements is the news that Bluewater Productions will issue a bio-comic of "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer.

Reelzchannel announced that the "Female Force: Stephenie Meyer" comic -- there'll be two versions -- will hit the stands right before the "Twilight" sequel's scheduled Nov. 20 release.

This week, of course, "Twilight" won 11 Teen Choice Awards, including "best drama picture" (tuning in for professional reasons rendered me near-deaf, by the way -- is there anything really louder than a tween-jet engine?!).

In other recent news, Edward Cullen and Bella Swan will now be available as Barbie dolls, the New York Daily News reports. No word on whether the Bella doll bleeds when bitten, let alone bleeds oh-so-metaphorically if she pines for a brooding vampboy.

And then there's the quickie-clip from the "New Moon" trailer due Friday:

There. Hope you're sated for a bit. This much "Twilight" news at once is nearly too rich for my blood.
