After the tremendous success of RIVERS OF LONDON: BODY WORK, next year Titan Comics will be publishing Ben Aaronovitch‘s and Andrew Cartmel‘s second RIVERS OF LONDON comic mini-series, NIGHT WITCH! The covers (above) were first unveiled on io9. Here’s a mini-synopsis for the new series…

A police vehicle on a routine prison transfer in north London is stormed by Russian hoodlums seeking to free a very particular prisoner. Their target is a witch. A dangerously powerful witch who doesn’t want to be free. Things rapidly turn ugly for the hoods and it’s soon a job for full-time police constable and part-time wizard, Peter Grant.

NIGHT WITCH is set between FOXGLOVE SUMMER and the upcoming THE HANGING TREE, which is due to be published in July 2016. The first issue of the new comic series will go on sale on March 16th, 2016. There are plans for a signing at London’s Forbidden Planet on release day — details to come.

The Peter Grant series is published in the UK by Gollancz, in the US by Del Rey and DAW Books, and has been published widely in translation. See Ben’s page for details.
