9780007319343: Cards on the Table (Agatha Christie Comic Strip)

A flamboyant party host is murdered in full view of a roomful of bridge players…

When the flamboyant socialite Mr Shaitana boasts to Poirot that murder is an art form rather than a serious science for the little grey cells, the detective has some reservations about accepting his invitation to a party. And his reticence proves to be well-judged when an after-dinner game of bridge turns into something decidedly nastier than mere art…

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
