Rivers of London Volume 3: Black Mould
Ben Aaronovich’s Rivers of London series has a special way of making something out of nothing, and this third volume of the graphic novel series, Black Mould, will make you question every strange black spot in your home and wonder whether it’s growing.
DC Sahra Guleed is brought in to investigate a possible case of the “supernatural” when a friend’s daughter refuses to live in her apartment anymore due to experiencing strong and terrifying feelings–and also saying there was a black mold on the wall that came to life and came after her. Knowing this is a little out of her league, she brings in a good friend and colleague, Peter Grant from the Folly. Grant has a history of dealing with things that don’t fit under the purview of “normal.” They face the mold head-on and apply science to keep it at bay. Using their investigative abilities, they trace the mold’s origin to a big, new apartment building where tenants have been experiencing strange goings on.
Like the last two volumes, Black Mold is another fun tale, with a couple of sideline stories, and together with the colorful, flashy artwork, it’s a great installment to hold readers over until the next Rivers of London novel comes out.
