Review: Rivers of London: Night Witch #5
Press-ganged into helping a Russian oligarch hunt his missing daughter, PC Peter Grant and his boss, Thomas Nightingale, London’s only wizarding cops, find themselves caught up in a battle between Russian gunmen, a monstrous forest creature – and their nemesis: The Faceless Man. But as Grant and Nightingale close in on the missing girl, they discover that nothing about this case is what it seems!
The conclusion to the second story arc of the modern fantasy series Rivers of London is an intriguing tale. While it’s the conclusion of this volume, it does leave a few unanswered questions especially due to the confusing ending panel. Something tells me this isn’t the last story arc for this series by any means. It does conclude the story arc well but leaves one wanting more.
The wave of realistic art continues as the strange case comes to end. There’s a few interesting flashback scenes throughout the comic with most of them using the Russian frontier during WWII as a setting. It helps create a solid contrast between the past and the present.
