Robert Kirkman Must Be Shopping Thief Of Thieves As A TV Show Again, Announces Comic's Return

He's likely to farm out the creative teams again.

Robert Kirkman's Thief of Thieves was announced as a new comic series and a television series nearly simultaneously, a movie normally reserved for Mark Millar and movies. While the AMC TV show hasn't come to fruition, the comic series ended in 2016.

It looks like Kirkman is trying to make a TV show happen again, with the reveal that the comic version of Thief of Thieves is apparently coming back. As his comics are now nothing but IPs for his IP farm Skybound Entertainment, there's no other reason to drum up press for the property.

While Thief of Thieves was created by Kirkman, he took influence from his newfound TV background and created a kind of writer's room on the title, meaning he could pay other writers to do the work for him, but still own the rights. Which would actually make Skybound not that different from Marvel and DC.
