“CSI meets Harry Potter” might be a good way to describe Titan Comics’ new series, Rivers of London. Based on the best-selling novels by Ben Aaronovitch, the 5-part comic will focus on the adventures of Peter Grant, a young officer the London, who deals with a special part of the law enforcement world: magic and the supernatural. Aaronovitch will pen the story along with Doctor Who showrunner Andrew Cartmel, with art from Lee Sullivan (Doctor Who comics).
The comic, which will take place between Book 4 (Broken Homes) and Book 5 (Foxglove Summer), will be titled Body Work. “I’ve been a massive fan of the series for a long time and it’s always a dream to bring something you revere to life as a comic, especially when you’re working with such an incredible team of creators!” Steve White, Titan Comics Senior Editor, said in a press statement.
Titan Comics has released a trailer to promote Rivers of London: Body Work #1, which will be available in comic stores and on digital devices July 15.
