Robert Kirkman, best known for writing The Walking Dead, has another success as Theif of Thieves gets a fifth printing of its first issue. While created by Kirkman, the book is written by Nick Spencer and drawn by Shawn Martinbroug. The book is about the ages-old story of the main character trying to get back to his old life, but continually being drawn back into his seedy life.
Image Comics continues to prove that you don’t have to be writing a DC comics New 52 book in order to have a high number of reprints. In addition to Thief of Thieves, Saga and Fatale have also had five reprints of their #1 issue.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Kirkman book if AMC wasn’t optioning it for a TV series.
Thief of Thieves #5 will have its second printing on 4 July and Thief of Thieves #1 will have its fifth printing on 11 July.
