Titan has released some preview art from Rivers of London: Night Witch #1, an all-new story set in the universe created by former Doctor Who scripter Ben Aaronovich for his acclaimed urban fantasy novel series Rivers Of London. The comic serves as a special prologue for the next novel in the series, The Hanging Tree. Night Witch is written by Aaronovich and Andrew Cartmell (a former Doctor Who script editor) with art by Lee Sullivan (Doctor Who, Judge Dredd) and Luis Guerrero (Doctor Who, The Troop). It’s released on 16 March.
A police vehicle on a routine prison transfer in north London is stormed by Russian hoodlums seeking to free a very particular prisoner. Their target is a witch. A very powerful witch who doesn’t want to be free. Things rapidly turn very ugly for the hoods and it’s soon a job for full-time police constable and part-time wizard, Peter Grant.
