Peter Grant and team have a new challenge on their hands with Here by Dragons.
Artist José Mara Beroy and writers Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel (The Vinyl Detective) team up with BAFTA-nominated scriptwriter and award-winning New York Times bestselling author James Swallow for the latest Rivers of London comic book series.
It feels like a good time to be a Rivers of London fan and a tabletop gamer. Why? The Rivers of London RPG, co-written by Ben Aaronvitch and from Chaosium, is out and well-reviewed.
Furthermore, the Basic Roleplaying engine that powers it has been re-released via ORC. That’s the license project being spearheaded by Paizo, but not controlled by them, to be open and safe for third parties.
Titan Comics has just released a preview set of cover art for Here Be Dragons #1 ahead of a July 12 release.

Here Be Dragons synopsis
Titan has provided the following synopsis;
A dangerous monster is at large above the streets of London. And its name… Wyvern!
After a Met Police helicopter on night patrol is attacked by an unidentified aerial phenomena, the Met’s only sanctioned wizard, Peter Grant, and his mentor, Thomas Nightingale, are called in to investigate.
Peter and Nightingale find themselves drawn into a battle between two groups of hunters – one human, and one fae – as they uncover a legacy of events that extend back to the 1960s.
To save the skies of the city, Peter must face the enraged beast – but can he end things peacefully… or will he be forced to destroy the last wyvern?
