Skybound’s Thief Of Thieves Kicks Off Its Final Heist On Independence Day

by Brendan M. Allen

On Monday, Image/Skybound Entertainment announced one last job for Thief of Thieves, their ongoing heist series created by Robert Kirkman in 2012. Series artists Shawn Martinbrough and Adriano Lucas return for the series blowoff. They’ll be joined in the final arc by writer Brett Lewis (The Winter Men).

Martinbrough says:

It’s been an absolute pleasure working alongside Robert Kirkman, Nick Spencer, James Asmus, Andy Diggle over the various arcs of this series. Having the freedom to visually create the world of Thief of Thieves and fill it with such an eclectic cast of characters has truly been a blast! For the final chapter, I welcome my School of Visual Arts college buddy and amazingly talented writer Brett Lewis to our crime family here at Skybound Entertainment. Together, with our superb colorist Adriano Lucas, letterer Rus Wooten, assistant editor Arielle Basich and our ever vigilant and very understanding editor Jon Mosian, we’ve been working hard to take our fans on one hell of a ride on this last job!

Previously in Thief of Thieves, readers saw master thief Conrad Paulson racing across Europe to be crowned the greatest thief in the world…only to be taken out by his enemies. Now, Conrad Paulson is dead—or is he? And what does a notorious Russian prison have to do with anything?

Find out in Thief of Thieves #38, when the entire crew returns to kick off its final heist.
