9780007354740: Five Little Pigs (Comic Strip Edition)

Why can't Poirot stop thinking about the nursery rhyme FIVE LITTLE PIGS in this brand new comic book adaptation of one of Agatha Christie’s best ever books.

The death of a rich and celebrated painter is not something people forget about - especially when his wife is convicted of the murder and locked up for life. Case closed. But sixteen years later, their daughter opens a letter that proves her mother didn't do it. Hercule Poirot must go back in time to discover what really happened on that tragic day…

Five Little Pigs is widely regarded as Agatha Christie's best written book, in which Poirot has to untangle the truth from five different accounts of what happened one fateful day. Now David Charrier and his accomplice Miceal O'Griafa have created an elegant graphic version worthy of this masterpiece.

“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

From the Back Cover:

Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, yet there were five other suspects: Philip Blake (the stockbroker) who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist) who stayed at home; Elsa Gree (the three-time divorcee) who had roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess) who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister) who cried 'wee wee wee' all the way home.

It is sixteen years later, but Hercule Poirot just can't get that nursery rhyme out of his mind…

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.

"Mrs Christie as usual puts a ring through the reader's nose and leads him to one of her smashing last-minute showdowns."
