Nunja.Ich muss gestehen, dass ich den Prosatext von Agatha Christie nicht kenne, trotzdem empfinde ich die Comic Adaption als recht misslungen Dem Macher der Adaption geht es offensichtlich lediglich darum, die Kriminalgeschichte verk rzt und in m glichst simpler Weise abzubilden, nicht darum, die Stimmung zu transportieren oder gar Spannung aufzubauen Von k nstlerischem Anspruch wage ich erst gar nicht zu sprechen Der Strich ist lieblos, f r Augen war wohl oft keine Zeit, anders kann ich mir di [...]
Captain Hastings returns to England and drops in to see his old friend Poirot just as Poirot becomes involved in taking down a very powerful and secretive crime syndicate, The Four Some people don t believe The Four even exist, but the trail of bodies proves someone doesn t want Poirot snooping around and will stop at nothing to get him off the case.I don t think I ve ever read this or seen an adaptation of this Poirot story, but it is definitely one of his most exciting And what is it with dete [...]

Convoluted story Probably written when Dame Christie wanted to disassociate herself from Poirot Casual nationalism with strong bias against Eastern Europeans and Asians.
