Skybound and Humble Bundle’s Walking Dead Package

humble bundle walking deadHumble Bundle actually has two comic packages running today. Earlier we posted about the IDW/Transformers one, but Skybound is also in on the action with a package packed with comics from The Walking Dead and a few of their other series like Ghosted and Invincible.

Humble Bundle works by having individuals pledge whatever amount they want, split between various things. In this case it’s Humble Bundle, Skybound, and three different charities, Penny Harvest, Rett Syndrome Research Trust, and Indie Cade Foundation. You can give it all to one, just a few, or split among them all.

This has some interesting tiers too. If you pledge $40, you get a t-shirt, and volume 20 of The Walking Dead. For $65, you get a limited edition Negan figure.

This is a great way to get all kinds of cool stuff, and support a charity!

Review and Recap: Thief of Thieves #21

ThiefofThieves21_Cover“Wake up, Conrad. It’ll never be over.”
– Audrey

Thief of Thieves #21 continues the relentless story of Conrad Paulson with the second issue of the fourth arc that is aptly titled ‘The Hit List’. Writer Andy Diggle is creating a darker world for Conrad to navigate through and, to be honest, I had always imagined this series to go down a more shadowy and murky avenue from the start with its unique storyline. This issue shows us just how deadly Conrad’s world can be as the crime war he is involved in heats up. The best part is Lola’s back story is revealed…well, just the part about how he got his name, but it’s awesome.

When I first read about Thief of Thieves’ release it was at the same time I read about it being picked up by AMC for a potential series. At first, I thought it would be sort of an “Ocean’s Eleven” type story with its perfectly timed comedic elements, a dash of drama and tons of action sequences as our anti-hero, Conrad, pulls off another unbelievable heist. It has become so much more than that with each subsequent arc and The Hit List is proof of just how far the creators are willing to go to bring us great stories.

Spoilers for Thief of Thieves #21 Below

Issue #21 intends to create a darker path for Conrad and the supporting characters to go down, hopefully showing us a side to Conrad we haven’t seen before. Now that the crime war has hit close to home, Conrad has no choice but to exact revenge on those that have wronged him and his family. I can only imagine how great the following are going to be as we follow him down this road to revenge. The issue is a great continuation to last issues set up for this arc. Learning more about Lola, one of my favorite villains, is another great bonus. His back story in this issue reveals how he got his name and it was extreme to say the least, but something you would expect from Lola.

A review about Thief of Thieves would not be complete without talking about the amazing illustrations by Shawn Martinbrough. He draws Conrad’s emotions so well it makes the story so believable and the characters so real. By adding that extra dimension it truly separates Thief of Thieves from other comics and this issue has plenty of emotion to show. We possibly see Conrad at his lowest point of the series and Diggle and Martinbrough continue to make Thief of Thieves appear fresh and new with each arc. Issue #21 is a definite ‘buy’ and coupled with Issue #20 would be a great jumping on point for any new reader.

Thoughts and Discussion – Spoilers Warning

- Do you really think Audrey and Augustus were on that boat?

- How did the Italians know where Conrad’s boat was located if he rigged the GPS? Could Arno possibly have something to with it?

- I’m really excited for this arc. Conrad using his unique talents and abilities to get revenge is going to make an awesome story going forward.

Review: Thief Of Thieves #20

ThiefofThieves20-Cover“Just one problem with weapons, of course…I take it you’re familiar with the concept of mutually assured destruction?”
– Foxley to Conrad

Thief of Thieves #20 starts its new arc, called The Hit List, that continues off of issue #19 perfectly. For those of you that are looking to pick up a new comic book series to read, Thief of Thieves #20 is a great jumping on point. The way Andy Diggle writes Conrad Paulson’s capers and interactions you get a sense that you’ve been with this book from issue #1. Robert Kirkman is not the writer for this arc, but Andy Diggle is superb as he takes over the hefty responsibilities of this one of a kind comic that should be on everyone’s Pull List each month.

SPOILERS BELOW FOR ‘Thief of Thieves #20′

This new arc promises to deliver the best stories yet for our slick hero, Conrad, and this issue starts off the mob none too happy with him. They visit him in prison and we get a sense of what the next five or six issues will focus on; Don Parrino’s book of mafia payoffs. Conrad has it and everyone else wants it. After he gets roughed up a little, in an attempt to make him divulge the book’s location, in walks a new character to the series, Sebastian Foxley, Conrad’s lawyer. He gets Conrad out of prison much to the displeasure of Inspector Ferrara and his ‘mob goons’.

What comes next is an expertly drawn chase scene as Conrad must evade Inspector Ferrara and his goons at the behest of Don Parrino, most likely. Conrad commandeers an officer’s motorcycle and leads the mob enforcers on a wild chase through the streets of Italy until finally going down into the subway station. Once there, he deceptively makes it appear as if he boarded one of the trains, but really he was just hiding out in the tunnel until the coast was clear.

The issue’s last part consists of Conrad meeting up with Celia, who is the stewardess aboard the private jet that is set to carry him home. It is revealed here that Celia is in fact hiding Don Parrino’s book in a safe place. Celia tries to make advances toward Conrad, but he insists he can’t because he wants to work things out with his wife, Audrey, and try to keep his family together and keep them safe. The last panels are of Conrad staring at the lot his house is on…well, was on; someone burned it to the ground.

From the moment this book came out it has been the first thing I read when each issue is released. Robert Kirkman organizes the book much the same way as a TV show; rather than having one writer for the duration of the comic book’s run, he has different writers and artists rotate and help with those duties. It has worked out very well, offering a fresh perspective to this amazing story and the art involved. Anyone that is worried it would look different or the arcs would not work together seamlessly have nothing to fear as all the parts flow perfectly into one another.

You can’t help but feel immersed in Conrad’s life as each page vividly comes to life through the work of Shawn Martinbrough. Thief of Thieves #20 sets the stage for another caper and action packed arc and knowing Conrad he will navigate through everything that comes his way with ease. We should finally get to see a little history about Lola as well and I look forward to the next interaction between these two very interesting characters.

Thoughts and Discussion

- Did you notice…there was a Marilyn Monroe look-a-like down in the subway when Conrad drove the motorcycle down there?

- What has Lola been up to this entire time?

- Where is Augustus?

- What does Conrad plan on doing with Don Parrino’s book of mob payoffs?

- Who burned down Conrad’s house? Was it Lola? Was it the mob via Don Parrino?

FURIO-#1-PINUP-PerezIt’s a new week of comics and there’s a massive list of fantastic releases coming out, in monthly floppies, trade paperbacks and graphic novels! Check out below for your best bets this week!

Top Pick: Furious #1 (Dark Horse) – I’ve been looking forward to this series since I caught a glimpse of it at last years Baltimore Comic Con. The comic looks at superheroes through the lens of celebrity. Expect a review up today, and I’ll give you a hint… I liked it a lot!

Black Science #3 (Image Comics) – Image Comics’ series mixes mad science with mad humor. The writing, world, story, art, all mix together for one of the strongest debuts of a series lately.

East of West #9 (Image Comics) – An apocalyptic western, the comic takes place in an alternate United States where the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse run free. It’s everything I want in a western infused with sci-fi elements.

Miracleman #2 (Marvel) – A chance to read one of the most heralded comic series. Reprinted for a new generation to enjoy.

Revival #17 (Image Comics) – I think this zombie series might be better than that other one that gets all the notice. Focusing on the people in a quarantined town, each issue is a slowly revealed mystery.

Saga #18 (Image Comics) – Universally loved. It topped “best of” lists in 2013 and 2012. Find out why before you get too far behind.

Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1 (Dark Horse) – The popular cult tv series returns to comics!

Superior Spider-Man #26 (Marvel) – Dan Slott starts his end game for story lines he’s been manipulating for years. One of the best superhero comics on the market.

Thief of Thieves #19 (Image Comics) – Catch this one before it hits the tv screen. An entertaining series about the world’s greatest thief.

Top Graphic Novel/Tradepaperback: Snowpiercer Vol. 1 (Titan Comics) – This graphic novel will have a movie based on it out soon. Mankind survives on a train that never stops, protecting them from bitter cold. It’s a fascinating study on class and country.

Thief of Thieves Will Steal the Hearts of New Readers

From Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, new ongoing writer Andy Diggle, and dedicated artist Shawn Martinbrough comes Thief of Thieves #20. Conrad Paulson is after a big score once again, but this time he may not be so lucky.

Conrad pulled off his last heist, but not without making some new enemies to add to his ever-growing list. Diggle hinted that the stakes would be raised in this new arc. “Master thief Redmond was hoping to retire after the biggest heist of his career, but instead it’s dropped him into the crossfire of an international gang war,” hinted Diggle. “He’s been on the back foot for too long; now it’s time for Redmond to go on the offensive. Things are going to get bloody.”

Is anyone in his life really safe with number of individuals bent on causing him harm? Find out when Thief of Thieves #20 arrives in stores on 4/23. It will be available for $2.99 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code: FEB140639.
