A police vehicle on a routine prison transfer in north London is stormed by Russian hoodlums seeking to free a very particular prisoner. Their target is a witch. A very powerful witch who doesn't want to be free. Things rapidly turn very ugly for the hoods and it's soon a job for full-time police constable and part-time wizard, Peter Grant. Covers by Paul McCaffrey, Alex Ronald, and Lee Sullivan.

    The story has places to go, and I can't wait to see where they're going to take it. Read Full Review

    Authors Ben Aaronovitch & Andrew Cartmel have penned an interesting debut issue, but in a way the story feels a bit convoluted and rushed " as if they wanted to push as many plot points into the first stanza as possible. I have faith that future installments will run smoother and more focused, based on Aaronovitch's previous work. Artist Lee Sullivan does a nice job, drawing realistic landscape backdrops thataccentuate the characters effectively. A decent start to which I know will be an exciting series. Read Full Review

    Not bad, but it was sometimes difficult to wonder who was who - and what was going on. I just hope this isn't going to go off on an anti-Putin job...
