‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics This arc has grown on me a little. Yes, it’s been a little mixed quality wise, but then again almost any central story told through multiple side tales always is. I quite like the ‘framing sequence with stories leading […]

‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics This Detective Stories arc is a bit of a mixed bag so far. It is interesting in the sense we are getting snapshots of past cases, and of past relationships, notably that with previous partner Lesley May. Not so […]

‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics It was three long months ago when I reviewed the last Rivers of London issue, the final part of the Black Mould story arc. That was fine stuff. In fact, aside from a couple of issues during the ‘Night […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics The final issue of a story arc is always a mixed blessing. On the one hand, you want a resolution, you want to see how it all finishes and if it lives up to what has gone before. On […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Some people don’t like too much humour in their reading, be it science fiction, horror, etc. They seem to think it dilutes the effectiveness of the genre. I tend to think the opposite. Very few things in life, entertainment […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Colour by Luis Guerrero | Published by Titan Comics This story arc has so far been outstanding stuff. Full of fabulously snarky dialogue, police procedural, magic, and a generous dose of humour and tongue firmly planted in cheek. The black mould of the […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Colour by Luis Guerrero | Published by Titan Comics Last issue, the first of this new ‘Black Mould’ storyline was an absolute cracker. None of the story arcs have disappointed of course, but this really had the feel of a creative team hitting […]

‘Rivers of London: Night Witch #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Rather like the first ‘Rivers’ limited series, Rivers of London: Night Witch has been a solid read. Sometimes perhaps promising a little more than it ultimately delivered, but usually maintaining a good balance between telling the main story and interweaving […]

‘Rivers of London: Night Witch #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp So far the ‘Night Witch’ arc has been very entertaining, lots of nice character work adding to the ongoing storyline involving a lot of Russian things – Russian gangsters, Russian witches, Russian supernatural beings.

‘Rivers of London: Night Witch #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first issue of the Night Witch arc was slightly odd in that the main characters of the book, PC Peter Grant and his boss Inspector Nightingale, barely featured. A lot of time was spent […]

‘Rivers of London: Night Witch #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first Rivers of London arc, ‘Body Work‘, was a nice 5 issue jaunt, enjoyable throughout without ever really being an essential read. We got a nice grounding in the world of PC Peter Grant, […]

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp You can approach this issue, and this series, in two ways. One, like me, as a novice to the world of Peter Grant, already the star of a series of novels by Ben Aaronovitch. Or […]
