Titan Comics releases “Rivers of London” trailer


Following up on its reveal of the first cover for its Rivers of London series, based on the best-selling novels by Ben Aaronovitch, Titan Comics  has just released a special trailer to promote the project.

The new comic was first revealed last October, and Titan has now confirmed it will be releasing a five-part comic series penned by Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel with art from Lee Sullivan, (replacing the previously-announced Matthew Dow Smith), coloured by Luis Guerrero.

The hugely popular Rivers of London novels – the series named after the first novel in the series of the same name, which was released in 2011 – follow the adventures of Peter Grant, a young officer in the London Metropolitan Police who is recruited into a special branch of the Met that deals with magic and the supernatural.

The brand-new Rivers of London comic adventure entitled Body Work, will be set between Book 4, Broken Homes and Book 5, Foxglove Summer, in continuity with the novel universe.  (Read our review of the latest, Foxglove Summer, here)
