‘Walking Dead’ Creator’s Latest Creation Coming to AMC

Thief of Thieves

AMC and ‘The Walking Dead‘ creator, Robert Kirkman are thick as thieves, these days. With Kirkman’s zombie drama now established as the greatest thing to happen to AMC since Don Draper, the network has decided to bring his latest comic book, “Thief of Thieves” to TV.

Kirkman’s latest book follows a thief, who you guessed, it steals art from other thieves. Conrad Paulson is a divorced father with an estranged son, trying to piece his life back together. He’s also the master thief known as “Redmond,” who the FBI would very much like to get their hands on.

Interestingly, “Thieves” is based on Kirkman’s time in the writing room, working on the TV adaptation of his undead hit comic. And the celebrated comic book writer feels his latest work is a natural fit for television.

“Much like ‘The Walking Dead’ brought horror to television in a unique and groundbreaking way, I feel ‘Thief of Thieves’ can do the same thing for heist stories, showing the humanity of all the characters, including the criminals,” Kirkman told THR.

Kirkman and “The Walking Dead” producer, David Alpert will team up with Chic Eglee, once again, who worked on the show’s first season. Eglee will serve as showrunner for “Thief of Thieves.” Eglee is also working on the FX adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis’ “Powers.”

Only two issues in, it’ll be interesting to see how the comic develops now that it’s already set for a TV adaptation. Unlike “The Walking Dead,” which was deep into its run before coming to TV, fans will have plenty of time to get on board with Kirkman’s latest comic.

That is if they can snag a copy of the first two issues, which are already sold out.
