A time-displaced master thief teams up with a 20th century hacker in Smooth Criminals, debuting in November from Boom! Studios. Written by Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Kurt Lustgarten and illustrated by Leisha Riddel, the new series follows an unlikely duo who work to solve how one of them ended up cryogenically frozen and how to pull off the biggest heist of the ‘90s.
Shannon Watters, Senior Editor at Boom! Studios says:
Sometimes the secret to lasting best pal-ship is committing a few victimless thefts of incalculable value. Or that could just be why Smooth Criminals is such an absolute delight. This is a story about women from different time coming together in the world of 90s where the rules aren’t just meant to be broken – they need to be obliterated. If you want to join the heist of this – or any other – century, you better get ready to ride shotgun with Kiwi, Kurt, and Leisha in November.
It’s tough to not draw comparisons to Austin Powers with this premise, but judging from these early preview pages, Smooth Criminals definitely distinguishes itself early on.
Smooth Criminals #1 will feature a main cover by Audrey Mok and a variant cover by Chynna Clugston Flores. It’s set for release on November 21st, 2018.
