Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Announces Thief of Thieves: Experience – a Partnership with Internet Explorer for Fans of the Comic Book
Robert Kirkman, creator and writer of the Eisner Award-winning The Walking Dead as well as the Thief of Thieves comic book series and graphic novels, and Skybound, his imprint at Image Comics, announced today their new partnership with Internet Explorer to release Thief of Thieves: Experience, a fully immersive, multi-touch website that allows fans of Thief of Thieves to become fully engaged in a heist.
The Thief of Thieves comic tells the story of Conrad Paulson, alias Redmond, a master thief who steals from other thieves to make up for his past robberies and gain redemption. Each arc of the comic is scripted by a different writer, echoing Kirkman’s experience in the writers’ room on The Walking Dead television series. Thief of Thieves was an instant hit when it was introduced in February, 2012, so much so that AMC immediately began developing Thief of Thieves as a potential series with Kirkman serving as creator/executive producer and writer.
Thief of Thieves: Experience allows fans to create their own secret thief identity, practice their skills in larceny, and ultimately participate in one last job – the big heist. It’s built to take advantage of the new Internet Explorer 10, which is designed from the ground up to be fast, fluid and perfect for touch, with a fully immersive, rich experience that is unlike any other tablet browser.
