Rivers of London: Body Work (2015) Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel, Lee Sullivan, and Luis Gurrero

Rivers-of-London-Body-WorkIf you’ve been paying any attention, you know that I have a deep and (probably) unhealthy love of Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London series. So when I saw there was going to be a comic, I searched because BY GOD I wanted that comic.

Luckily, Gary’s Comics came through for me, and I was able to order the series. Of course, since I hate cliffhangers, I had to collect them all (there are five books in this collection) before starting to read. (Also, I got the eBook versions, because… I have no good reason, really.) So I’ve been waiting patiently for these, and finally read them. (I still haven’t been down to Gary’s to pick up the 5th volume, so that was read as an ebook, which I don’t enjoy for comics.)

Boyd-Work-GuleedThis story is set between Broken Homes and Foxglove Summer, and finds Peter working with DC Sahra Guleed to investigate killer cars.

I’ve always liked DC Guleed, and I’m delighted we get to spend more time with her.

“Nightingale wants me to be more discreet.”

“Discreet? You blew up a tower block!”

“That wasn’t my fault.”

“Covent Garden burns down?”

“Sshhh.”

As you can tell, the dialogue is typical Peter, which I adore.

body-work-mollyOf course we also get Beverly Brook, but even better, we get to see Molly outside of Peter’s view of her.

Rivers-of-London-TobyPlus: Toby.

Will you enjoy this if you haven’t read the Rivers of London series? I honestly can’t tell you. I love this series so much, I can’t look at it separate from my adoration. But if you’ve read the series, you’ll want to check out the comic–especially the little one page comics in the end (often starring Toby) and Peter’s descriptions of areas of London and magic.
