Previous books by the author/in the series I’ve reviewed:
After reading Dog Men last week, I decided to double back and read some more of the Rivers of London graphic novel series.
This was good, but not great. I liked this volume a lot, but it had some narrative quirks which weren’t quite satisfying. The villains were a bit… trite. The plot seemed a little half-baked. I liked the plots of basically all of the other five more than this, particularly Black Mould and Night Witch.
I did have fun though. Abigale had some screen time and as always Molly is a hoot. Molly, who doesn’t talk in the books, is SO EXPRESSIVE and SO HILARIOUS in the visual medium.
But I did notice two visual mistakes. First, a character had a soul patch in one frame and never had it again in the rest of the book. Second, a character had differently shaped eyes in three frames but had another shape of eyes for the rest of the book. Small details, but I noticed them.
Overall, I can recommend this to just about anyone, especially for fans of the book series. This is the sixth story in this graphic novel series, and was worth the read.
