Review: Rivers of London: Night Witch #2.4
Desperate to find his missing daughter, Russian oligarch Nestor Yakunin has resorted to extreme methods – he has kidnapped innocent civilians to force Peter Grant and Thomas Nightingale – London’s elite wizarding policemen – to help in the search. But you play with magic, you’re going to get burnt…
Rivers of London: Night Witch #2.4 is a complex well-written story, with an ending that leaves you wanting more. The Russians have issued a ransom for a kidnapped child, that is oddly specific.That move only arouses more suspicion by the cops though not the rich family that is giving the ransom. The ending for me is highly surprising since it was beyond unexpected.
Like previous issues, the art is well done. We finally get to see the home of Peter’s Grant lover. The look is a highly modern in design and color scheme that really stands out in the issue.
