Ben Aaronovitch's career started with a bang writing for Doctor Who, subsided in the middle and then, as is traditional, a third act resurgence with the bestselling Rivers of London series. It was nice to get some additional stories with them working together. It's strongly implied that she pre-dates Mama Thames but as a tributary of the Thames has accepted her authority. I like these graphic novels, they can convey much of the story with the art work, though they have the obvious disadvantage of not being able to allow us as deep into the psyche of our hero that a novel can, but them's the breaks. Having garnered a fair amount of experience and knowledge, Peter is also in line for a promotion and is undergoing the process that could make him a Detective… Self-contained magical crimes, as recounted by Detective Peter Grant to his superiors, as he takes the Detective exam.

If I had to criticize anything it's that the supporting cast barely get a look in here which is a real shame. Either way, they usually involve magic. There are some nice callbacks to and cameos from the novels, and draw on established lore in new ways. This format does let us move around in time, and some of the stories are being told when Lesley May was still Pet This volume of the 'Rivers of London' graphic novel series takes a slightly different format to the previous ones. Time to call in the Met's Economic and Specialist Crime Unit 9, aka 'The Folly'. Having a small, easily solved crime allows us to focus on who and what is important to this world.

So imho there's no real need to read this or the other comics and defo not any need to buy I think I might like this format better than the ones for previous arcs. And maybe once in a career, you're doing it for revenge. There's also a fun noir bit done with another Ghost Interview, and the comic style and the tone changes to match. This comic, like the others before it, like little story board ideas that Aaronovitch could use for nothin else than to tie book events together or at best as teasers for the book series - it has no accelerating plot points and no merit - Me, Im a big fan of the author and the series, but I feel like I've been robbed of the 45 mins I spent on this comic book - I have learned absolutely nothing new a Another 'meh! I think this comic might be the most important, as it involves Peter's potential promotion from Police Constable to Detective Constable am I acronyming corr I said in my review for the last Rivers of London comic compilation that I liked the way that the comics add depth to the novels - add characterization, add a sense of time since the novels are pacing out over years and often skip several months, in-text or between books, there's plenty of room for filler stories - just add, in general. I found it very hard to know when to read what books given some do provide new information and many frequently dip into past events from the main series. An all-new series of Rivers of London short stories by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel. If you've ever wanted to try the mysterious world of Rivers of London, this is the perfect opportunity to get on board! The bulk of the story is actual world building with a large chunk in actual police work which I very much enjoyed.

I like actual words and all that around a story, so can't we just get a short story where Peter thinks about these things while chasing ghosts? And if there is, why oh why did it have to be South of the River—in the jurisdiction of some pretty prickly local river spirits? It is also a worthy and wonderful addition to the Rivers of London or Peter Grant universe — enriching it just a tad more. The Rivers of London novels are great fun and the graphic novels are interesting and fun as well. Register a Free 1 month Trial Account.

Rivers of London: Detective Stories is the latest combined volume of the spin-off comics from Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London books. All in all, Rivers of London: Detective Stories is a well written graphic novel about Police Constable Peter Grant's investigation as he is being evaluated whether he is fit to become a Detective Inspector as one of his superiors reviews four of his cases. This collection consists of four self-contained short stories linked together by a cute framing device. And a very, very slow one. Still, no peace for the wicked. It's interesting to me that they pretty much look like I had imagined them. But I love music and comic books.

This item is not in stock. An all-new series of Rivers of London short stories by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel. However, beyond these character details, this volume is pretty skippable. Each short story was rather well written and was cleverly connected in the grander story about the possible promotion for Peter Grant. An all-new series of Rivers of London short stories by Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel. The Rivers of London series just keeps getting better and better. Four interconnected but not connected does that make sense? Ludmila is in prison for the first bungled kidnapping but is still expected to come up with the ransom.
