Later this month (25th), Panini are due to publish the German edition of NIGHT WITCH, the second story-arc in Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel‘s Rivers of London comic series! Published in Germany as NACHTHEXE, here’s the synopsis…
Als die junge Tochter eines wohlhabenden russischen Oligarchen scheinbar von einem mythischen Monster entführt wird, sehen sich die Ermittler der Londoner Polizei für paranormale Fälle – Peter Grant und sein Boss Thomas Nightingale – gezwungen bei der Suche zu helfen. Es dauert nicht lange, da befinden sie sich im Kreuzfeuer russischer Banden und stehen einer monströsen Waldkreatur sowie ihrem Erzfeind, dem Gesichtslosen Magier, gegenüber.
Panini has also published the first story-arc in the series, BODY WORK, as AUTOWAHN. The series artwork is by Lee Sullivan (art) and Luis Guerrero (colours).
The series, now available in a collected edition, is published in English by Titan Comics. Here’s the English-language synopsis…
Press-ganged into helping a Russian oligarch hunt his missing daughter, PC Peter Grant and his boss, Thomas Nightingale, London’s only wizarding cops, find themselves caught up in a battle between Russian gunmen, a monstrous forest creature – and their nemesis: The Faceless Man. But as Grant and Nightingale close in on the missing girl, they discover that nothing about this case is what it seems!
Titan Comics has published all of the English-language editions of the Rivers of London series to date: BODY WORK, NIGHT WITCH, BLACK MOULD, DETECTIVE STORIES, CRY FOX, WATER WEED, and the recently-completed ACTION AT A DISTANCE.
