ANNOUNCED!  I’ll be writing the second arc of THIEF Of THIEVES for Image Comics & Skybound Entertainment starting with issue #8 in September!

In fact, you can read the initial announcement in The Hollywood Reporter with some great quotes & info about the series.

The book is the latest smart, surprising, and utterly cool comic from Robert Kirkman (creator/writer of Walking DeadInvincible among others).  He created the world, characters, and story – and he’s co-plotting the series with a few of us rotating writers.

The current arc (available digitally or in your local comic shop) was written with Nick Spencer (creator of the hit comic Morning Glories).  I can tell you that it’s working up to a truly classic (and for me – narratively rich) finale through issues #6 & 7.  If you haven’t been reading it – you really should catch up or get the trade in September.  I also have to mention that Shawn Martinbrough is doing art for every issue of the book and absolutely delivers a cinematic cool that brings the characters and the danger to life.

I was surprised and thrilled to be asked to work on the book around the end of last year.  And one of my favorite days of my career so far was the January day spent with Kirkman and another fantastic and well-respected creator-to-be-announced-later brainstorming and fleshing out concepts and story arcs through the next three arcs of the book.  It really was like the TV writer’s room approach that Kirkman had envisioned for the series.  And it was a blast.

Both because of that brain-trust approach and the more grounded, realistic nature of Thief of Thieves – this book is going to be unlike anything I’ve written in comics.  And I am so excited for it to come out!  There’s still plenty of my instincts in the book – but I’ve been excited and inspired by both what Kirkman & Spencer have already done with the book and the concepts flying around our writer’s room.

I couldn’t be happier about getting a chance to work with Image Comics and such phenomenal collaborators.  I hope you’ll dig it, too.
