ICYMI, Rivers of London HERE BE DRAGONS #1 Out Now!


The first issue (of four) in the latest Rivers of London comic series, HERE BE DRAGONS is out now! The eleventh story arc in the Rivers of London comic series, it is written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel, and James Swallow. Here’s the synopsis…

A dangerous monster is at large above the streets of London. And it’s name is… Wyvern!

After a Met Police helicopter on night patrol is attacked by an unidentified aerial phenomena, the Met’s only sanctioned wizard, Peter Grant, and his mentor, Thomas Nightingale, are called to investigate.

Peter and Nightingale find themselves drawn into a battle between two groups of hunters – one human, and one fae – as they uncover a legacy of events that extend back to the 1960s. To save the skies of the city, Peter must face the enraged beast – but can he end things peacefully… or will he be forced to destroy the last wyvern?

Series artwork is by José María Beroy, who also did Cover A (above). Covers B and C (below) are by David M. Buisan and Vv Glass, respectively.

The comic series is part of the overall Rivers of London canon, so if you would prefer to follow overall Rivers of London story in chronological order, here’s a handy graphic Titan Comics has created to help you out…

The only title missing on that graphic is Ben’s latest novella, the Sunday Times-bestselling WINTER’S GIFTS, which takes the action across the pond to the United States! The book is out now, published by Orion/Gollancz.
