Next week: WATER WEED…


Next week, the first issue in Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel‘s next Rivers of London comic series arrives in stores! WATER WEED #1 will be published by Titan Comics on Wednesday, June 20th. Here’s the synopsis…

Spring Breakers meets Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels on the banks of the Thames! When two of the less well-behaved River goddesses, Chelsea and Olympia, decide to earn a few quid on the side, Peter and Bev find themselves drawn into a sordid cannabis-smuggling operation, controlled by London’s new queenpin of crime – the brutal and beautiful Hoodette!

WATER WEED is the sixth Rivers of London comic series, the first five of which are also available from Titan Comics: BODY WORK, NIGHT WITCH, BLACK MOULD, DETECTIVE STORIES, and CRY FOX. The art for all of the series so far is by Lee Sullivan, with colours by Luis Guerrero.

OPERATION VOLCANO commences!


The first issue in Andrew Cartmel‘s new comic series, DOCTOR WHO: 7TH DOCTOR — OPERATION VOLCANO, is released today! Executive produced by Ben Aaronovitch, and published by Titan Comics, here’s the synopsis…

In Titan Comics’ new mini-series, an unknown alien intelligence in orbit around the Earth. Astronauts under attack. A terrifying, mysterious landing in the Australian interior. The future of the world itself at stake. Counter Measures activated. The Seventh Doctor and Ace are slap bang in the middle of it all! This is OPERATION VOLCANO!

Andrew was a long-time showrunner of Doctor Who; and Ben is the author of the fan-favourite 7th Doctor novel, REMEMBRANCE OF THE DALEKS, which celebrates it’s 30th anniversary this year. This double-sized first issue is available with four variant covers (above and below), and includes a short back-up story, written by Richard Dinnick (Twelfth Doctor) with art by Jessica Martin (Doctor Who actress). You can check out a preview from the issue here.

Ben and Andrew are also the authors of the Rivers of London comic series, also published by Titan Comics, and based on Ben’s Peter Grant series or novels and novellas.

Andrew is also the author of the Vinyl Detective series, published in the UK and US by Titan Books.

CRY FOX, collectively, in June!


The collected edition of the fifth Rivers of London comic series, CRY FOX is due to be published by Titan Comics in June! Above you can see the cover for the trade paperback. The series is written by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel, with art by Lee Sullivan and colours by Luis Guerrero. Here’s the synopsis…

CSI meets Harry Potter in this fantastic new graphic novel from Ben Aaronovitch, writer of the bestselling Rivers of London supernatural police procedural crime novel series!

Vengeful Russian mobsters are looking to hire members of London’s own more-then-natural underworld to bring bloody retribution down on the witch Varvara. However, the ex-Soviet sorcerer is under the protective wing of London’s own wizarding cop, Peter Grant (now a proper detective and everything), and to get the attention of Grant and his colleagues, the the daughter of a prominent Russian oligarch is kidnapped by parties unknown but possibly fox-like. What makes it worse is that Peter is going to have to leave his beloved London and *gasp* go out into the countryside! And when there’s trees and fields and wildlife involved, things never end well…

The first four series have also been published as collected paperbacks and digital editions: BODY WORK, NIGHT WITCH, BLACK MOULD and DETECTIVE STORIES.

Ben’s Peter Grant series of novels is published in the UK by Gollancz, in the US by Del Rey and DAW Books, and widely in translation. The seventh novel in the series, LIES SLEEPING is due out later this year. (We’ll share more information and the cover as it becomes available.)

 

The Seventh Doctor returns!


Later this year, Titan Comics are due to start publishing Andrew Cartmel‘s new Doctor Who comic series! Featuring the Seventh Doctor, OPERATION VOLCANO is sure to please fans of the TV series. Ben Aaronovitch will also be helping out with the series which, as io9 pointed out in their exclusive cover reveal, is somewhat fitting: both Cartmel and Aaronovitch have a long history with the Seventh Doctor — Cartmel was a showrunner during Sylvester McCoy’s tenure as the Doctor, and Aaronovitch wrote REMEMBRANCE OF THE DALEKS and also BREATHE. Series art will be by Christopher Jones, with colours by Marco Lesko. There is no official synopsis, yet, but here’s a series description, from the BBC’s Doctor Who website:

‘In Titan Comics’ new mini-series, an unknown alien intelligence is in orbit around the Earth. Astronauts under attack. A terrifying, mysterious landing in the Australian interior. The future of the world itself at stake. Counter Measures activated. The Seventh Doctor and Ace are slap bang in the middle of it all! This is OPERATION VOLCANO!’

The three-part OPERATION VOLCANO is expected to begin arriving in stores in June 2018, starting with a bumper-sized issue. We are certainly excited about reading more Seventh Doctor, timey-wimey sci-fi adventures!

Covers by: Will Brooks, Chris Jones, and Simon Myers
