I’m a sucker for those good old heist movies, in which there are all kinds of complicated plot twists and turns and surprises, highlighting the advanced master strategy of the protagonist – the forward-thinking nature of the (anti)hero we follow. Enter Thief of Thieves, the concept of which is literally like the above description, though things go awry and the tale moves into a completely singular and sometimes unexpected direction.

Thief of Thieves follows the master of pilfering renowned among the criminal netherworld and organized syndicates, known as Redmond (aka Conrad Paulson). He is the best of the best, and is known for taking down major heists. But in his mind, his time is up – it’s time to step out of the scandalous life, and retire. Despite this, constant evolving events cause him to get dragged back into the lifestyle.

His son, Augustus, tries to follow in his father’s shoes, more so from rebelliousness against Daddy Redmond. Augustus gets himself tied up in Mexican Cartel business, causing his father to step in and attempt to pull his son out of a hole that just keeps getting deeper and deeper.

This brings us to Issue 14″¦

Robert Kirkman Developing ‘Thief Of Thieves’ For AMC
  |  

AMC announced today that Robert Kirkman will be bringing the new Image comic book Thief of Thieves to the the cable network.

As a comic, it feels very much akin to the many comics from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips considering its crime/noir vibe.

Thief of Thieves #2
Story by Robert Kirkman
Written by Nick Spencer

Release Date: March 14, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

Thief of Thieves #2 might not feel like much of a comic at first, my initial feeling was that it was underwhelming, but let it gestate some. I think there’s something interesting going on here.

The writing is the big draw for the new series from Image Comics. Or, to be more accurate, the writing process itself. The publishers’ star scribe/Chief Operating Officer, Robert Kirkman, is utilizing his experience as Executive Producer on The Walking Dead and acting as ‘Show Runner,’ in TV terms, on the title, which, in comic terms means taking ‘Story’ credit. He’s said, in essence, that he writes the broad outline of the story and that a different writer per arc will actually script the book. Morning GloriesNick Spencer is tackling the first arc.
