‘The Town’ Meets ‘Heat’ in Upcoming Heist Comic ‘THE TITHE’

Writer Matt Hawkins (THINK TANK, TALES OF HONOR) and artist Rahsan Ekedal team up for an all new thriller suspense series—THE TITHE—coming from Top Cow this April.

In THE TITHE, mega-churches are being robbed for millions of dollars by a crusader hacker group known as Samaritan who is giving the money to causes they deem more worthy. This modern day “Robin Hood” is being pursued by two FBI agents who actually admire their quarry but want to stop the theft before it escalates.

“If you’re fan of heist movies like Heat and The Town, you’ll get a kick out of The Tithe,” said Hawkins. “Instead of banks or art museums however, we’re robbing mega-churches and the morality of all involved is put to the test.”

The blurb from Image comics is touting this crime thriller as akin to Michael Mann’s classic crime caper ‘The Heat’. I know big words right? But I do like a good heist story and the premise is an interesting one. I think time will tell just how much the whole robbing mega churches angle will split opinion a lot will depend on how well that side of the story is handled. There’s a hint in the blurb that no one in this story is going to come out smelling of roses.

Either way I’ll be interested to see what a preview looks like and blimey those masks in the promo art look seriously scary.

THE TITHE’s starts on April 15 and Cover A by Ekedal can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code FEB150488. Cover B by Ekedal can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code FEB150489.
