    James Asmus did a great job building on what Nick Spencer had built and if his first & second issues are any indication of what we have to look forward too then count me in. James continues the cool/slick writing tradition we have all grown to love in issue 9. James is clearly building us up for an epic dilemma that Redmond will face. I can't wait to see how it plays out. Shawn Martinbrough continues to wow me in this series because I always feel like Thief of Thieves belongs on a movie story board. The writing and art go hand in hand and this new duo is doing it right. Going forward I would like to see direct interaction between Redmond and Augustus and also see how Augustus even got involved in the thief game Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Oct 6, 2012

    This is a series that will blow up when/if it eventually hits television and has a smooth feel to it that makes you cheer on Redmond hoping he gets away with his latest game/heist. With a past that's slowly being revealed, there's more than enough to keep me coming back for more and more. Easily one of my favorite comics on the market. Read Full Review

    This series wont be for everyone, but I have a hard time believing that fans of cleverheist movies, Kirkman comics, or a compelling crime series will find much to dislikewith this comic. Though this issue didnt blow my socks off, this series is better taken inwhen the whole arc can be observed as a singular story. Great artwork certainly helpsan issue where the script spends the entire plot teeing up the issues to come. A solideffort from the team and Thief of Thieves continues to impress me when compared tomost books from the Big 2. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Oct 2, 2012

    That being said, there is a lot of potential still here for Thief of Thieves. If it doesn't get bogged down in gangsta cliches and sticks to its original premise, there is a lot to be seen in the upcoming issues. Read Full Review
