A well-crafted tale of multiple deceptions and clever scams, Heist #1 (Vault Comics) is a highly enjoyable crime thriller. Readers will instantly love the sci-fi premise of How to Steal a Planet.
Welcome to planet Heist! It’s the cutthroat capital of the entire Nehring System, home to billions of the worst men and women in the galaxy. The Pan-Galactic government has no idea what to do with the planet, but conman Glane Breld and his band of thieves know exactly what to do with Heist-they’re going to steal it.
Here are 5 reasons why you should you read Heist #1:
5) Getting The Gang Together!
HEIST #1 comes out THIS week from @thevaultcomics, by me, @ArjunaSusini, @AstoneVittorio & Saida Temofonte! Read the story of the biggest heist of all time, when Glane Breld & his crew set out to steal an entire planet! pic.twitter.com/Vjf7yPkLaB— Paul Tobin (@PaulTobin) November 4, 2019
If you love heist movies such as The Sting and Ocean’s 11, you’re going to love the idea behind this series. Like the classic crime films, the first part of the narrative is about putting the crew together.
4) The Writing!
Writer Paul Tobin does a great job of having morally ambiguous characters, such as Glane and Brady, talking smooth and acting cool. Glane knows he has an impossible job to do, but with the right crew, he can pull off anything. The lettering by Saida Temofonte goes a great job getting into Glane’s thoughts as he narrates the con job with his own suspicions.
3) The Artwork!
Artist Arjuna Susini is amazing at building a sci-fi world that still feels grounded. Notice how Glane flies around in his own convertible, with the top down. Brady looks like a kid, but his face has whiskers on his cheeks, like he might be a human/animal hybrid.
2) The Colors!
The eye-popping colors by Vittorio Astone are really bouncy in the nightclubs and shady stores. In his pitch-perfect fashion design, Glane looks cool with purple jacket and the white streak in his black hair.
1) The Perfect Crime!
In the script for an upcoming issue of HEIST, I told @ArjunaSusini to just design a minor character however he liked, and so Arjuna made him into a scary giant worm with a hat and a cane, and this is why I absolutely love working together with him. pic.twitter.com/pqZTZBDX8v— Paul Tobin (@PaulTobin) November 4, 2019
A fun read, Heist #1 does a great job with the world-building and introducing the characters, Now that we know who these crooks are, I can’t wait to see how they plan to steal a planet.
Heist #1 arrives in stores on November 6th, 2019.
