Rivers of London: Body Work, #5

A battered old harmless wooden stall? A snazzy sports car turned homicidal killer? A pack of wayward rich kids? Like pieces of a weaponizsed jigsaw puzzle, the links between these three apparently unrelated things are becoming lethally clear to full-time London cop and part-time wizard Peter Grant!...

Rivers of London: Body Work, #5 Reviews

  • Christine

    I haven't read many graphic novels, but I'll read anything to do with the Rivers of London series, as they are brilliant! I pre-ordered this set of five comics as soon as I read on Ben Aaronvitch's website that they were in existence. As a story, it slots into the book series seamlessly. It has a well thought out mysterious crime which Peter sets out solving in his usual analytical and cynical style with plenty of witty banter along the way. There is also a bit more of Nightingale's back story.

There is also a bit more of Nightingale's back story. I enjoyed the illustrations which matched the fast pace of the story and helped to bring it to life, although I prefer the characters I had imagined myself to the illustrations! There is an extra double page at the back of each comic which explains a particular detail of the story in a bit more depth. I wouldn't have missed these sections if they weren't there, but they might be of interest to some people. Overall I enjoyed this comic series and it has satisfied my craving for Peter and his pals until I can get my hands on the next book!

    Nice conclusion to the Body Work story, although I was annoyed by the typo calling it a ducking "stall" instead of stool. Loved the short epilogue with a Downton Abbey theme, and interesting notes about the demi monde by Peter at the end.

    This whole story has been a wonderful take on King's Christine. Loved it.

    I’m a big fan of the Peter Grant series, and yet I’ve avoided the graphic novels for one reason: I’m not a fan of graphic novels. I’ve tried to get into them a few times, yet I find it extremely difficult. I can understand the appeal, I can see why there are so many graphic novel fans out there, but I doubt I will ever be one. Nevertheless, my curiosity about the Peter Grant graphic novels remained. Thus, I decided it was time to borrow Body Work from the library.

    With this one, it’s very much a case of “it’s not you, it’s me”. As I’ve stated, I’m not a graphic novel fan. Although this was a nice addition to the Peter Grant storyline, it didn’t do much for me. There was no point where my feelings reached the high they do when I am reading one of the novels. It was okay, but it was not enough to blow my mind – making it a rounded down two-point-five-star rating.

    If you do enjoy graphic novels and you’re a fan of the Peter Grant stories, then you should certainly give the graphic novels a read – it is a nice extra for fans, but it is not something I will be reading more of.
