9780007280544: Hallowe'en Party (Agatha Christie Comic Strip)

A thirteen-year-old girl holds the clue to a death at a party on 31st October – was it a fatal mistake or a murder?

At a Hallowe’en party, Joyce – a hostile thirteen-year-old – boasts that she once witnessed a murder. When no-one believes her, she storms off home. But within hours her body is found, still in the house, drowned in an apple-bobbing tub.

That night, Hercule Poirot is called in to find the ‘evil presence’. But first he must establish whether he is looking for a murderer or a double-murderer.

Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie’s books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories – full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world’s most popular and exciting mysteries.

Review:

“There is always room for more Agatha… These graphic adaptations dish up the quintessence of Christie. There are, in other words, lurid melodrama, plenty of weird and wonderful coincidences, lashings of period-perfect style and a thorough workout for the little grey cells.” Observer

“Agatha Christie is a classic of her genre. These are good stories. Now they can be accessed in different ways.” Times Educational Supplement

“Along with their brilliantly noirish covers, the books are intended to reinvigorate Christie’s murderous tales… Mixing their quintessentially English tales with a continental taste for comic books, the series will appeal to graphic novel fans who may not otherwise discover Agatha Christie’s most enduring stories.” Velocity Magazine

Book Description Harper. 1 No Jacket(s), 2008. soft. Book Condition: New. Hoping to make this year's Hallowe'en a night to remember, Mrs. Drake throws a party for all the youngsters in the village. One of them, an angry and unpopular 13-year-old named Joyce, gets so caught up in the theme of the evening that she claims to have witnessed a murder. Nobody takes her seriously, of course—until she is found drowned in an apple-bobbing tub. This Hercule Poirot investigation, written in 1969, includes an appearance by his apple-munching sidekick, crime writer Ariadne Oliver. The book is part of a series that presents Christie's gripping mysteries as full-color graphic novels, adapted and illustrated by talented visual storytellers from France and Belgium. 46.
