Explosive publisher BOOM! Studios has released an unlettered first look preview at Smooth Criminals #1, the first issue in a new series by writers Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Kurt Lustgarten and artist Leisha Riddel. The story:
There are certain things Brenda expects to find while hacking: money, secrets, occasional pictures of cats. She is NOT expecting to find a cryogenically frozen master thief named Mia from the ’60s. Mia is everything Brenda is not—cool, confident, beautiful. And utterly unprepared for the digital age. Despite their differences, the two will need to team up to find out what happened to Mia—and how to pull off the biggest heist of the ’90s.
Said BOOM! Senior Editor (job responsibilities: mainly coming up with these press release quotes) Shannon Watters:
Sometimes the secret to lasting best pal-ship is committing a few victimless thefts of incalculable value. Or that could just be why SMOOTH CRIMINALS is such an absolute delight,” said Shannon Watters, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “This is a story about women from different time coming together in the world of 90s where the rules aren’t just meant to be broken – they need to be obliterated. If you want to join the heist of this – or any other – century, you better get ready to ride shotgun with Kiwi, Kurt, and Leisha in November.
Smooth Criminals #1, with a main cover by Audrey Mok and a variant by Chynna Clugston Flores, hits stores on November 21st. Final order cutoff is on Monday. Check out the preview below.
