    This issue had everything that the last few issues have been lacking. There was no more stand still and it looks like they're finally going to start moving the story along. At first I was a little disappointed that there wasn't any action in this issue, but after I really gave it some thought, I stared appreciating the writing style and realized that the creative team was able to produce a fantastic story and left you wanting more without having to blow something up or let the bullets fly.

    Its time again for everyones favorite crime drama. This is a book I usually read in trade form but, were close to volume two so Im still current. The story picks up with Conrad and his son Augusta in hot water and he must pull off a job or theyll kill his son. Conrad must recruit his ex wife to do one more job to save their son. This title is always a smooth exciting read from cover to cover. The art style here is something of its own and with the shadowy dark coloring it makes for one of the best looking books out there. Just having Kirkmans name on it, along with a solid story moves it off my shelves faster than most books. There are a lot of crime books out there but this is easily the best. If you like any of the Brubaker crime stories, this is right up your ally. This is a title I recommend to everyone! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Vanessa Gabriel May 30, 2013

    Thief of Thieves #14 is a strong start for writer Andy Diggle. Diggle launches into a new arc and doesn't employ any coyness with this story " this is a straightforward, hit-you-where-it-hurts kind of a set-up, and you most certainly want to know what happens next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 30, 2013

    If you haven't picked up "Thief of Thieves" yet, I'd say it's well worth your time. I think it's the strongest of Kirkman's comics right now, and I appreciate that from one issue to the next, there's always a strong element of fun involved. (Even when there are scenes involving depressive drinking; it's not all smiles and giggles, to be fair.) "Thief of Thieves" #14 is a reminder that this book is very much on track, and it's a consistently enjoyable comic. That's a big thumbs up for me. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - J.C. Macek III Jun 3, 2013

    Redmond has proven to truly be the embodiment of the Thief of Thieves, fully living up to that name. All the while Martinbrough seems to be living up to the name of Image itself. Thief of Thieves is one of the more beautifully drawn and colored books Image has to offer in its current lineup. On the bright side, Kirkman, Asmus and Diggle have an excellent setup for a compelling new story arc to introduce us to, possibly equal to the art that tells this story. On the more shadowy side, they're taking their sweet time to tell this tale and stretching it out over as many issues as they can. To be fair, however, with Shawn Martinbrough and Felix Serrano on the title, even the slow pace proves to be the scenic route. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward May 28, 2013

    From beginning to finish, this issue is a joy to read. It has a tense opening, lots of drama and a tantalizing ending. Yet it answers, or does, nothing in the long run. Its a great arc, but it feels as if it stomps, poops and @#&!s on what came before. It has very little to do with it. The father and son dynamic is still there, but everything else is thrown out the window. Read Full Review
