Description

Miss Marple's first case is adapted into the first Miss Marple comic book in this long-awaited adaptation of one of Agatha Christie's most famous novels.

Nothing ever happens in the peaceful village of St Mary Mead. So it seems almost incredible when Colonel Protheroe is discovered shot through the head in the vicarage study. Unfortunately for the murderer, there is someone in the village who knows everything, sees everything and hears everything - and she intends to work out who killed the Colonel. Her name is Miss Marple!

The Murder at the Vicarage was the book that introduced Miss Marple to the world. Loosely based on Agatha Christie's own grandmother, this charming but suspicious old lady was to become the world's most famous amateur sleuth, and is brought to life in this graphic adaptation by the artist Norbert Morandière, known internationally as 'Norma'.

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.
