Agatha Christie's crime novels, already immortalised on television, on film, on stage and in audio books, have been adapted as comic strip editions.
The relaunch of Christie in this new way is timed to coincide with the annual Agatha Christie Week on September 9 to 15, 31 years after the novelist's death.
The relaunch in comic form is an effort to make the world's second best-selling author more appealing to new and younger readers.
The famous Orient Express will be instantly recognisable to Christie fans. The first 12 of 83 titles will launch next month and the rest are due to follow next year.
The start of the roll-out, September's Agatha Christie Week, marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of Christie's Death on the Nile, a film that starred Dame Maggie Smith.
Christie will appear as a character in the new series of BBC1's Dr Who, which is due to start next year, a move that will introduce her to new fans.
In the Murder of Roger Ackroyd, the protagonist knows too much and pays the price. In classic Christie-style, he dies while reading a crucial clue to another killing.
An estimated one billion copies of her novels have been sold in English, and only William Shakespeare has been more widely read, according to the Guinness Book of Records.
