A nifty little murder mystery with an Agatha Christie vibe based on the characters from the classic board game -- which I have never played. Thankfully, Tim Hodler provides an article after the story explaining the history of the game and its appeal.

Alternative artist Dash Shaw was a surprising but inspired pick to create this media tie-in. He has fun with the art and plays around with the expectations of graphic novels and murder mysteries, even dropping in a few activities and puzzles along the way.
