The original work of ‘Super Crooks’ is a crime-action comic series of the same name produced by Mark Millar, a legendary figure in the comic industry, and Leinil Yu, a comic book artist. The story centers around a small-time crook Johnny Bolt who recruits the villains that have superpowers for his one last burglary targeting a ruthless super-powered criminal.
Motonobu Hori, the director of “Carole & Tuesday,” will serve as the director, and Bones, a highly appreciated anime creating company, will be in charge of the production.
