An important date for your calendars: Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel will be at London’s Forbidden Planet next week, signing copies of the RIVERS OF LONDON: BODY WORK collection and issues of RIVERS OF LONDON: NIGHT WITCH #1 — including an exclusive Ben Oliver variant (pictured below)! Ben and Andrew’s comic series are published by Titan Comics. Here’s the synopsis for BODY WORK…
Peter Grant looks look your average London police officer, but he is actually a part-time wizard in a very elite branch of the Metropolitan Police. It’s his job to investigate those crimes that regular cops don’t like to talk about because they often involve vampires or strange things in Underground tunnels.
Peter’s latest case features a self-driving killer automobile, a Serbian refugee, the Most Haunted Car in England, a handsome drug dealer with a nice paisley scarf and a seemingly harmless wooden bench with a dark past!
Here, too, is the synopsis for the first issue of NIGHT WITCH…
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 very powerful witch who doesn’t want to be free.
Things rapidly turn very ugly for the hoods and it’s soon a job for full-time police constable and part-time wizard, Peter Grant.
RIVERS OF LONDON: NIGHT WITCH issue one is published on March 16th, 2016. Series artwork is by Lee Sullivan and Luis Guerrero.
