‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics The previous arc, ‘Water Weed’, was different in that it was the first written solely by Andrew Cartmel. No worry was necessary though, as it turned out pretty good, with I’m assuming creator/formerly co-writer Ben Aaronovitch serving as a sort of […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the final issue of the ‘Water Weed’ arc, and although it has been enjoyable, it has also meandered a little here and there and has not quite offered up as much as it promised. I’ve certainly enjoyed […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Several story arcs in, and I finally bit the bullet and started to read the Rivers of London novels alongside the comics. Though, funnily enough, I actually like the comics more (at this stage of course, several more books to go […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was the first one we have seen where the fab creative team that has so far guided this book along was no more. Ok, maybe that’s overstating it a tad, as both Andrew Cartmel, as writer, and Lee Sullivan, […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Seems to have been an absolute age since there has been a new Rivers of London book, and looking back the last issue of the ‘Cry Fox’ arc was back in February. How dare Cartmel and Aaronovitch have any time off. […]

‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ben Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Always a pleasure when a new issue of one of my favourite books drops. I read many comics every month, and some I read through a sense of completion rather than a sense of enjoyment, but can honestly say […]

‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ben Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw the beginning of a new story arc, Cry Fox, which although it did feature a fox of sorts had absolutely no crying. It did , though, have a whole heap of other stuff that directly led […]

‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ben Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Always a pleasure when a new issue of Rivers of London arrives, even more so when it is the start of a new story arc. You never quite know where this book will be going, so rich is the […]

‘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 #2′ Review

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Rivers of London continues to be one of the consistently best books out there month after month. It combines the best of both worlds, story wise. We get clear, defined story arc’s, which allow for anything and everything the […]

‘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 […]

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, […]
