HERE BE DRAGONS – New Rivers Of London Comic Series Announced!


Last week, Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel announced the next Rivers of London comic series: HERE BE DRAGONS! Co-authored with New York Times best-selling author and BAFTA-nominated screenwriter James Swallow, you can watch a Forbidden Planet-hosted clip above.

The new series is set after the events of AMONGST OUR WEAPONS, the ninth and latest novel in the series. Here’s what Swallow said about the series…

‘Some say that a dangerous monster is at large over London. Some say that “Electric Ladyland” wasn’t the only thing Hendrix released into the wild, back in in 1968. Some say the Fey are hunting prey in the shadows. And some say only fools and bold, young coppers venture where the map warns “Here Be Dragons”!’

Want to read all of the Rivers of London books in chronological order? Titan Comics has created a new graphic with all of the books to date…

Titan Comics has published all of the Rivers of London comics in English, to date; Panini has published the first nine in German.

We’ll share covers, release dates, and more as this information becomes available.

RIVERS OF LONDON: DEADLY EVER AFTER Collection Out This Week!


The collected edition of the latest Rivers of London comic arc, DEADLY EVER AFTER, is out this week! Officially published by Titan Comics on November 25th, it is the tenth comic series set in the Rivers of London world. Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel, and Celeste Bronfman, here’s the synopsis:

Illustrations from a mysterious book of fairy tales drawn in the late 1800s are coming to life in the 21st Century and causing havoc. The illustrations were originally painted by a Victorian artist called Jeter Day who disappeared one night in an enchanted forest when he was spirited away by tree nymphs never to be seen again…

Now, with the enchantment accidentally broken by Olympia and Chelsea, daughters of the river goddess Mama Thames, Jeter, twisted by his time spent with the nymphs, has returned to our world bitter and resentful. It is a world he neither recognises nor likes. All he wants is his life returned to him and woe betide any man who stands in his way.

With Peter and Nightingale busy on another case, it falls to sisters Olympia and Chelsea with the help of the Foxes to stop Jeter and save the day.

Series artwork is by José María Beroy.

Vol 7: Action at a Distance

Thomas Nightingale is a man of immense power, one of the most highly revered magicians in Europe, but with a guarded past. Hidden within the archives of London Metropolitan Police’s Special Assessment Unit, Detective Constable Peter Grant is about to uncover a brief glimpse into his mentor’s history.

Vol 8: The Fey and the Furious

When a Mitsubishi Eclipse washes up on the shores of the Netherlands, officers are surprised to find some unusual cargo in its boot. Fortunately, unusual cargo just so happens to be wizarding-cop Peter Grant’s speciality. Infiltrating illegal street races, Peter hopes to find the supplier, but instead quickly finds himself speeding into a whole new world of trouble, where old enemies await.

Vol 9: Monday, Monday

What starts as a routine undercover operation to break up an organised teenage pickpocket gang turns into something far more dangerous when the Metropolitan police are confronted by a Swedish werewolf who’ll stop at nothing to avoid capture. Now it’s up to full-time cop and part-time wizard Peter Grant and his cohort of chums to hunt the deadly lycanthrope and bring him to heel!

New RIVERS OF LONDON Comics Boxset Out Now!


A new Rivers of London comics boxset is out now! Written by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel, and collecting volumes 4-6 — DETECTIVE STORIES, CRY FOX, and WATER WEED — it is published by Titan Comics in comic stores today! (It’ll be released in other bookstores more widely on December 14th.) Here’s the synopsis…

CSI meets Harry Potter in this graphic novel from Ben Aaronovitch, writer of the bestselling Rivers of London supernatural police procedural crime novel series, and Andrew Cartmel author of The Vinyl Detective.

A stunning box set edition of three of the bestselling graphic novels in the Rivers of London sequence, starring Ben Aaronovitch’s laconic trainee wizard and budding detective, Peter Grant.

Volume 4: DETECTIVE STORIES — From foiling an aspiring god to confronting a virtual flasher, Peter Grant’s police history has been anything but conventional; whether that’s chasing down ‘Falcon’ crimes with the aid of modern technology, or confronting timeless villainy with his magical skill-set. Now he faces what might be his biggest challenge as he faces an internal investigation at the hands of the Met’s best internal investigation officer, DI Chopra and all that’s at stake is his badge.

Volume 5: CRY FOX — 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 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…

Volume 6: WATER WEED — An anthology series of stories featuring Police Constable Peter Grant, his partner, Sahra Guleed, and their associates, as they tackle supernatural crime on the streets of London! 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!

The perfect gift for the Rivers of London novel fan who hasn’t discovered these amazing graphic novels yet! Includes Art Cards featuring the cover art from the individual graphic novels.

The first three story arcs have also been collected in a boxset, published by Titan Comics. Titan has also published the seventh and eighth collections, and are currently publishing the ninth story arc: ACTION AT A DISTANCE, THE FEY AND THE FURIOUS, and MONDAY, MONDAY.
