First comic that I'll be flying through today is the second issue of the Thief of Thieves series. Like I said last issue, the writers for this one(Robert Kirkman and Nick Spencer) are top of the line, but the first issue just didn't do anything for me... Let's hope business picks up with this one.
Thief of Thieves #2:
Summary: Redmond is still insisting that he's retired, which is still pissing off/shocking Celia. From there Redmond heads to a restaurant and meets with his ex-wife. Redmond tells her that he had quit being a thief, which angers his ex, since she had wanted Redmond to quit that life years ago, but he couldn't let go. Redmond's ex makes it clear that they had no shot at reconciliation, but she does tell him to tell his son that he had gotten out of the life.
Thoughts: Yeah, there was some flashback stuff involving Redmond and his ex-wife, like how they got together and stuff, but it didn't seem important enough to put in the summary. Anyway, once again, like the prior issue, this issue just didn't produce for me. We're getting little bits and pieces of Redmond's(and other character's) history, but what I've read thus far really isn't all that interesting. So Redmond stopped being a thief. And he has an ex-wife. And a son. It's just not grabbing me yet. Oh well, here's hoping that changes come the next issue.
Score: 6 out of 10.
This is the part of the movie where the sad music would play right before the scene shifted.
