THIEF OF THIEVES SNATCHED OFF SHELVES
DEBUT ISSUE OF NEW ROBERT KIRKMAN TITLE SELLS OUT ON FIRST DAY OF RELEASE
Continuing a trend for SKYBOUND/Image Comics in 2012, THIEF OF THIEVES #1, the first issue of a new series by Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD), Nick Spencer (MORNING GLORIES), and Shawn Martinbrough has sold out. The issue has immediately gone back to press and a second printing (DEC118235), with a new cover by Martinbrough, will be in stores on the same day as THIEF OF THIEVES #2, March 14.
The story of a master thief who gives up a luxurious and thrilling life of crime to try to salvage everything he lost -- his family and a life above ground -- by leaving it all behind, THIEF OF THIEVES launched on February 8. Prior to sale, there was wide interest in Kirkman bringing a television-style writing process to comics. A team of writers helps to refine the story of THIEF OF THIEVES, with Kirkman at the helm to guide the story.
Like all SKYBOUND/Image Comics, THIEF OF THIEVES is available on a variety of electronic platforms, as well as in comic book stores.
If you haven’t heard about Shawn Martinbrough yet, you must be living under a rock. The THIEF OF THIEVES artist recently wrapped up art for Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER, has worked for every major publisher in the industry, and even made a book about drawing noir comics. His art on THIEVES- accompanied by Felix Serrano’s colors- are both subtle and vibrant.
It’s my pleasure to give you FIVE THINGS TO KNOW! about Shawn Martinbrough:
"I attended Fiorello H. Laguardia High School of the Performing Arts and Music and Art in NYC. The influential pop artist Keith Haring spoke at an assembly and I had no idea who he was at the time. I do now."
"One of the greatest comics that I ever read growing up was Avengers Annual #10 drawn by the great Michael Golden."
"I will take breaks from the art table to bike around the White House and Capitol building to clear my head."
"I watch films for visual stimulation almost as often as the average person listens to a favorite song.
Ask me how many times I've seen "The Last Boy Scout"."
"I drew Robert Kirkman, Nick Spencer and Sina Grace in the first issue of "Thief of Thieves" and no one noticed!"
Be sure to pick up Thief of Thieves #1, on sale tomorrow, in comic shops nationwide.
