Description


A high-stakes heist thriller about the most daring and successful thieves in Chicago: three generations of women from the Banks family.

For fifty years the women of the Banks family have been the most successful thieves in Chicago by following one simple rule: never get greedy. But when the youngest Banks stumbles upon the heist of a lifetime, the potential windfall may be enough to bring three generations of thieves together for one incredible score and the chance to avenge a loved one taken too soon.

From NY Times bestselling writer Roxane Gay (Hunger; Black Panther) and artist Ming Doyle (The Kitchen).

"The Banks is the best kind of heist story: a sharp, tight robbery with escalating tensions and threats coming from every direction." - The A.V. Club

"It will leave most readers smiling at the end of their journeys with the Banks family." - The Beat
