THIEF OF THIEVES #1

IMAGE COMICS

story ROBERT KIRKMAN & NICK SPENCER
art /cover SHAWN MARTINBROUGH

Conrad Paulson lives a secret double life as master thief Redmond. There is nothing he can't steal, nothing he can't have... except for the life he left behind. Now, with a grown son he hardly knows, and an ex-wife he never stopped loving, Conrad must try to piece together what's left of his life, before the FBI finally catch up to him... but it appears they are the least of his worries.
