Rivers of London Volume 5: Cry Fox Reviews

    The graphic novels continue to be nowhere near as good as the regular novels, but they throw in some added interest, and keeps me in touch with the universe while I wait for Lies Sleeping to come out. With this one, I like that Abigail gets a bit more page time, but most of the rest...

    I enjoyed this one a lot, though I thought giving Reynard Wolverine hair and muttonchops was a little ridiculous. ...

    I'm reading the Rivers of London graphic novels out of order and here is a case where it has bitten me. Apparently you want to read Rivers of London: Night Witch first. While I'm happy to get more Peter Grant stories via these graphic novels, they are missing a large part of what I ...

    This is the next in the graphic novel instalments of the Rivers of London series (Peter Grant). The book does follow the series and in fact at the end of the book (where there are usually a number of extras including one shot strips and other details) there is a chronological history w...

    These little graphic-novelettes are not meant to be stand-alone stories, but read alongside the "Peter Grant" series (starting with Rivers of London. I can't remember if the novels specifically reference events that occur in the graphic novels, but if you're already reading the series,...

    I love Rivers of London graphic novels. I initially thought they were just the graphic representations of the same stories covered in the books. How wrong I was! I recently read Lies Sleeping, and there was a reference to the foxes which I didn't get as I hadn't read this. Great...

    This fifth graphic novel of Peter Grant's adventures concerns some posh scum who re-enact the film A Very Dangerous Game for fun (i.e. hunting, but with the prey being humans, not foxes), except they choose Peter's cousin Abigail as their next victim, which goes about as well as you'd ...

    The 5th graphic novel in this series and according to the authors reading order comes before the latest novel 'Lies Sleeping', hence I read this first. Another, more or less, stand alone graphic novel that contains a single case with an old adversary, Reynard the Fox. Although this ...

    Perfectly acceptable addition to the Rivers of London graphic novel collection. We've pared down to four comics per volume, so the story arcs are getting a little tighter. Things I liked: -The panel where Abigail first walks into the "library" filled with only the single book. It ...

    Hm. Also ich bin etwas enttäuscht. Bis jetzt haben mir die Comics gefallen aber an diesem hier hab ich ein bisschen was auszusetzen. Und dabei würde ich es gerne mögen wollen, da es um Füchse geht. Das beste an dem Band ist definitiv Abigail. Ich mag ihr Character Design und find...

    Another quick story that takes place in between the novels. (In this case, post The Hanging Tree and pre whatever's next.) The action takes place some time after "Night Witch" in the Detective Stories graphic novel. Happy to see that Abigail and Guleed have larger roles in this sto...

    The more I read these Peter Grant comics, the more I like them. This one involved Abigail playing innocent while wearing a T-shirt that said ?Monday: The Struggle Is Real,? so I?d say that?s an automatic four-star situation. ...

    These graphic novel additions to the Grant/Nightingale world continue to be consistently good. It was fun to see Abigail in action in this installment. ...

    Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com 3.5 Stars It is no secret I'm a fan of the Rivers of London series and one of the things I like is the multiple ways in which the story is told, e.g. here the graphic novel. Like its predecessors it is good in keeping y...

    This next entry into the Rivers of London comic series seemed a little short - but I think that's because it was only 4 issues instead of the longer 6-issue stories from the first few volumes. The story itself is a good an interesting one, although Peter himself is hardly in it, so it'...

    This latest Rivers of London graphic novel may well be my favourite yet. When the daughter of a Russian oligarch goes missing Grant and Nightingale are called in. Then it turns out that Abigail has gone missing too. With some help from some foxes the Folly realises demi-monde inhab...

    Reynard Fossman is a very foxlike man, one of the demimonde. He arranges a kidnapping and other crimes to get himself some money. In addition to the main story, which brings in Peter and Nightingale as well as Peter's niece Abigail, there are the usual, for these graphic novels, one-p...

    The Rivers of London comic continues to show off what you can do with a great licensed comic. It's well written by Aaronovitch and Cartmel, it maintains strong continuity with the books, it keeps some continuity of its own, and it feels important. In Cry Fox we get the story of a re...

    The latest graphic novel in Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London series. Characters from earlier graphic novel "Night Witch" appear, along with Abigail and that slimely little refugee from the hunt, Reynard Fossman. I can't give an synopsis without given the plot away. It's a fairl...

    Wow, that was surprisingly disappointing. The plot was both convoluted and cliche. Non of the characters got to be very active in their own story, or at least not in a way that ultimately mattered bc of deus ex nightingale. Also the tone just felt really off - assuming I cared about th...

    Graphic novel edition of a Peter Grant short story is a good little taster but I prefer the full novels. Art work is good though ...

    I may have lied a bit earlier. While I normally don't read graphic novels, or haven't in many years, something happened to me while I was reading the last few of these Rivers of London graphic novels. I started to get an itch. A very minor itch, but definitely something I haven't felt ...

    Its good seeing Peter and co in another novel although very limited time with Peter in this one. Others appear as the main character. The story itself is pretty cliched and simple, nothing really original. Its been told a million times with different authors. Just waiting for November ...

    The RoL crew re-enact 'The Most Dangerous Game' with some talking foxes thrown in to hammer home the allegory. Entertaining enough until the next novel arrives. ...

    In brief: A girl?s kidnapped for ransom, Abigail Kumara is taken with her, and the only witness is a talking fox. Just another day at the Folly. Fifth in a series and tangential to another one. Thoughts: This is pretty average for the Rivers of London comics. It?s good fun, with...
