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

'Agatha Christie' was born in Torquay 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 attribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequaled ingenuity of her plots.

BEWARE – NOBODY IS QUITE WHAT THEY SEEM!
