    Okay I will apologise in that this is a little bit late but I think the cold I have just shifted had something to say about that. Okay so what to say about the next in the Rivers of London graphic novel series? Well for starters as the series of books increases there is finally an n...

    Another decent (but not outstanding) Rivers of London collection that should please (but not thrill) fans of the novels. This collection consists of four self-contained short stories linked together by a cute framing device. ...

    Love this series bur this has to be the strongest offering from the graphic novels do far. Multiple short detective stories from Peters past. Told from Peters view explaining how things got solved etc. Just way too short!! ...

    I found these quite technical and fun. World: Standard art. But the world building here is good. It's not huge and grand but it fills in the gaps nicely and also gives little character moments that make me smile. The bulk of the story is actual world building with a large chunk in ...

    The most recent offering in the Rivers of London graphic novels series. This one is four separate stories linked by the device of Peter Grant doing his final interview to ascertain whether he is suitable to be promoted to Detective Constable. The interviewer, Detective Inspector Cho...

    Nice little filler till the next novel comes out. ...

    Four short stories from Peter Grant's career in policing, with the framing device of his detective's exam (conducted by an understandably confused non-magical copper). They're all far more substantial than most single issues manage these days; granted, the opening story is a bit on the...

    Rivers of London: Detective Stories is the latest combined volume of the spin-off comics from Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London books. This one contains four short, self-contained casefics, recounted by Peter as part of the assessment process for his promotion to Detective Constable. ...

    Ich verschlinge die Graphic Novels zu der Rivers of London Reihe immer regelrecht. Es ist einfach so schön immer wieder kurze Einblicke in den Alltag der Charaktere zu bekommen, während man auf eine neues Buch wartet. Die Geschichten sind immer mit sehr viel Liebe und sehr vielen D...

    3.5 stars. Unlike the previous graphic novels, this one contained four standalone stories rather than one case. This made it a little less satisfying, although it did contain some cases from the early days in Peter's career which was interesting. I still enjoyed it, but mostly because...

    Good stuff as always. Could have done with more Nightingale, but this was still an enjoyable collection. ...

    Part of what I love about these books is the police procedural stuff, so obviously I really enjoyed these little case reviews. Plus bonus Leslie feels. ...

    This volume of the 'Rivers of London' graphic novel series takes a slightly different format to the previous ones. Rather than being a single story, it's a set of short stories, with the overarching narrative of Peter taking his detective exam and these being episodes from his history ...

    This collection of stories about Peter's past cases is really the least of the Rivers of London comics so far. There's nothing at all wrong with it, but the cases are forgettable and there's not much contribution to the overall storyline or world. The exception is when the authors r...

    This is my favorite of the collected comics so far! Peter narrates four of his cases to a reviewer who investigates whether he is good as s detective. We get flashbacks to the partnership with Lesley as well as other cases, and they all fit the length well. The art is still far from pr...

    This is the best of the Rivers of London Graphic novels so far. The comic strip format really lends itself well to short high density stories, and the structure here with Peter sitting for his Detective Interview highlighting the best of his earlier cases allows for quick fire fun stor...

    A nice mix of "short" episodes from Peter Grants's career, filling in a few gaps between the novels. These therefore don't have the same depth as the longer comic or novel tales, and thus aren't quite as gripping. One or two even have somewhat disappointing conclusions, unfortunately. ...

    3.5 stars, really. I liked the frame of Peter undergoing his detective review, allowing the book to flash around in the timeline. Still not sold on the artwork but I did like the cover. Some of the cases were a little more coherent than others, but on the whole, a fun collection. ...

    I always enjoy these. Funny in a quiet, thoughtful way that makes you double take and go back to read again. Peter is up for his Constable interviews and is recounting cases from the past to show how well suited he is for police work. Consolidating all separate issues into this o...

    Tak tenhle díl byl super :) 4 krátké p?íb?hy, pár jednohubek k tomu a kreslí? se tentokrát víc odvázal. ...

    I enjoy this series. The novels are better than the comic books though. ...

    Excellent set of illustrated short stories in the world of Peter Grant ...

    Love Rivers of London novels and since being introduced to the graphic novels, love them as well. ...

    It's never enough. Just a short taste of Peter Grant and then it's over. I miss Lesley. So does he. ...

    But does he get it? Answer the tough questions, comic. ...

    A gentler collection of stories, but with excellent imagery ...

    Really enjoyed the style and links to past stories. ...

    Good to have a series of stories in one volume, rather than just one, and also good for someone just getting into the series. ...

    This latest collection is a string of one shots that are connected by the fact it is Peter going over some of his old cases as he is being reviewed for promotion. None of the stories are connected and in fact one doesn?t have any magic in it since it was about one of the first cases ...

    3.5 stars, really. I liked the frame of Peter undergoing his detective review, allowing the book to flash around in the timeline. Still not sold on the artwork but I did like the cover. Some of the cases were a little more coherent than others, but on the whole, a fun collection. ...

    I always enjoy these. Funny in a quiet, thoughtful way that makes you double take and go back to read again. Peter is up for his Constable interviews and is recounting cases from the past to show how well suited he is for police work. Consolidating all separate issues into this o...

    I enjoy this series. The novels are better than the comic books though. ...

    Excellent set of illustrated short stories in the world of Peter Grant ...

    Love Rivers of London novels and since being introduced to the graphic novels, love them as well. ...

    It's never enough. Just a short taste of Peter Grant and then it's over. I miss Lesley. So does he. ...

    But does he get it? Answer the tough questions, comic. ...

    A gentler collection of stories, but with excellent imagery ...

    Another decent (but not outstanding) Rivers of London collection that should please (but not thrill) fans of the novels. This collection consists of four self-contained short stories linked together by a cute framing device. ...

    Love this series bur this has to be the strongest offering from the graphic novels do far. Multiple short detective stories from Peters past. Told from Peters view explaining how things got solved etc. Just way too short!! ...

    Another decent (but not outstanding) Rivers of London collection that should please (but not thrill) fans of the novels. This collection consists of four self-contained short stories linked together by a cute framing device. ...

    Love this series bur this has to be the strongest offering from the graphic novels do far. Multiple short detective stories from Peters past. Told from Peters view explaining how things got solved etc. Just way too short!! ...

    I found these quite technical and fun. World: Standard art. But the world building here is good. It's not huge and grand but it fills in the gaps nicely and also gives little character moments that make me smile. The bulk of the story is actual world building with a large chunk in ...

    Four short stories from Peter Grant's career in policing, with the framing device of his detective's exam (conducted by an understandably confused non-magical copper). They're all far more substantial than most single issues manage these days; granted, the opening story is a bit on the...

    Rivers of London: Detective Stories is the latest combined volume of the spin-off comics from Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London books. This one contains four short, self-contained casefics, recounted by Peter as part of the assessment process for his promotion to Detective Constable. ...

    Part of what I love about these books is the police procedural stuff, so obviously I really enjoyed these little case reviews. Plus bonus Leslie feels. ...

    This volume of the 'Rivers of London' graphic novel series takes a slightly different format to the previous ones. Rather than being a single story, it's a set of short stories, with the overarching narrative of Peter taking his detective exam and these being episodes from his history ...

    This collection of stories about Peter's past cases is really the least of the Rivers of London comics so far. There's nothing at all wrong with it, but the cases are forgettable and there's not much contribution to the overall storyline or world. The exception is when the authors r...

    This is my favorite of the collected comics so far! Peter narrates four of his cases to a reviewer who investigates whether he is good as s detective. We get flashbacks to the partnership with Lesley as well as other cases, and they all fit the length well. The art is still far from pr...

    This is the best of the Rivers of London Graphic novels so far. The comic strip format really lends itself well to short high density stories, and the structure here with Peter sitting for his Detective Interview highlighting the best of his earlier cases allows for quick fire fun stor...

    A nice mix of "short" episodes from Peter Grants's career, filling in a few gaps between the novels. These therefore don't have the same depth as the longer comic or novel tales, and thus aren't quite as gripping. One or two even have somewhat disappointing conclusions, unfortunately. ...

    3.5 stars, really. I liked the frame of Peter undergoing his detective review, allowing the book to flash around in the timeline. Still not sold on the artwork but I did like the cover. Some of the cases were a little more coherent than others, but on the whole, a fun collection. ...

    I always enjoy these. Funny in a quiet, thoughtful way that makes you double take and go back to read again. Peter is up for his Constable interviews and is recounting cases from the past to show how well suited he is for police work. Consolidating all separate issues into this o...
