Murder on the Orient Express: The Graphic Novel
Murder on the Orient Express: The Graphic Novel is a faithful adaptation of the famous Agatha Christie novel, adapted and illustrated by Bob Al-Greene. With one odd exception: Hercule Poirot is completely bald, with an exaggerated mustache that continues into his sideburns.
Regardless, it’s an entertaining way to re-experience the story at one’s own pace. The frequent use of full-page horizontal panels captures the claustrophobic feel of the train cars, even when they’re divided into panels to more easily guide the reader’s eye.
It’s a word-driven book, obviously, with Poirot’s deductions and the various characters’ stories, but the illustrations help a lot in reminding the reader of the time and place of the events.
It’s unlikely anyone interested doesn’t know the twist by now, but Murder on the Orient Express: The Graphic Novel is an entertaining way to re-experience the story.
