The Tithe Offers Heists of Biblical Proportions


Matt Hawkins and Rahsan Ekedal are really good at a lot of things, but there's one good thing in particular. They're really good at making new series with Top Cow that are interesting and outlandish. In this case, The Tithe is an all new, thriller suspense series due in stores in April.

"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."

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.

The Tithe offers the start of a high-stakes heist adventure on April 15. Cover A by Ekedal can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code FEB150488, while Cover B by Ekedal can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code FEB150489. Full press release below.
