The heist you've been waiting months to see goes down! Will Redmond - AKA Conrad Paulson - be able to pull this off, or will his final caper leave him behind bars, or worse... six feet under?

    The first "Thief of Thieves" storyline is about to wrap up, and at that point barring utter disaster next month I'd say that it's a success. A fun overall story with great snappy dialogue, and some gorgeous art. I've been sold since the first issue, but it's been a real pleasure to have the book maintain such a strong tenor since then. A good job from all involved. Read Full Review

    Shawn Martinborough's wonderful artwork of the theft in progress serves as a background to the fatherly advice in the letter. Read Full Review

    Thief of Thieves #6 has got several good hooks to it that's well worth the $2.99. With Spencer's story arc soon coming to an end, I would recommend the upcoming first trade for newcomers looking to jump onboard. Or, if you are feeling adventurous, look for the back issues and get them all! That might be difficult, as this book has gone back for double printing in some occasions, so not a lot of unsold copies lying around, I reckon. Still, the series is definitely worth the effort!

    Shawn Martinbrough's pencils continue to amaze. The entire issue looks like a storyboard for a potential episode. AMC probably loves this, as it gives them a great idea for what the episode should look like. The always talk heavy issues cater to Martinbrough's strengths, as it gives him a chance to draw characters with lots of personality. Readers can get a great read on who they are and how they will react in this situation. The body language use rivals Chris Samnee as some of the best in the industry. While the issue has a realistic feel, the heavy line use gives the issue a comic book feel. Too often artists try to be as realistic as possible, forgetting where the story is being published. But Martinbrough gives us the best of both worlds. As a reviewer, I can see this book becoming a bitch to review, as it's going to be harder and harder to find ways to say “this book is great and you should be reading it.” Read Full Review
