Anna and Johan are two
freelance thieves who've been asked, by a strange Mr. Horwitz,
to steal over 30 Million dollars in diamonds from a mining company
in Cape Town (South Africa), in exchange of a good share of the
Once in the city, they team up with Natalie, a young red haired
hacker, who appears to be the one who gave Mr. Horwitz the idea
of stealing those diamonds.
Difficulties show up very soon: Johan and Natalie end up hating
each other, due to a rivalry that rises when they begin snooping
for finding Anna a way to break in the vault. Also, the group
needs find someone trustworthy who could take the diamonds safely
out of the south african borders, where Mr. Horwitz has arranged
a deal with a buyer.
The choiche falls on Mario, a pilot who only seeks forgiveness
for an old incident that involved him and Anna. Of course, who
made that choiche was Johan, as Anna is still holding resentment.
In spite of all these troubles, the plan comes toghether: Anna
succeeds in bringing the diamonds out of the vault. But that's
when Natalie decides to keep them for herself.
Anyway, a short after, and thanks to a long talk with Mario, she
realizes to actually have a crush on Johan and comes back to fix
As you can see, the
story is very simple, since I intended to focus this comic mainly
on the characters rather than the plot. Unfortunately that's not
my kind of comic: even if I believe it wasn't a bad idea, i'm

that's why I mercilessy killed it before it was too late.

She's a thief, and proud to be one. She doesn't steal for
money, but for challenge: to prove herself that there's
no place she cannot sneak into. She is, in fact, extremely

Anna may seem a quiet girl at first glance, but she's actually
very aggressive and has a pretty bad temper. Many had learned
better not mess with her: she may not be strong, but her
fists are as fast as unexpected.
Anna's best friend since when they were little kids. He's

One day he tried to convince Anna to quit stealing, but,
since then, he ended up being her accomplice. Now, he
approaces the objective in disguise in order to learn
all about the security (where the cameras and sensors
are, access codes, etc...), and reports back to Anna.
Mostly known as Red Ferret, Natalie is one of the few female
professional hackers in the world. She may not be the best,
but she knows how to bypass a firewall and, as long as there
are people who pay her to do so, she's happy: making herself
a name on underground networks isn't her goal, making a
lot of money is!
That said, she really loves talking about herself, and she
does it really a lot ...so much she could even stun people
with her talk.
He's an aerotaxi pilot and Anna's ex-boyfriend. "Ex"
because he's unintentionally responsible of her first (and
only) arrest and, since then, she always refused to talk
to him. He's still in good terms with Johan, who wishes
the two would get along again.
Mario is a very quiet guy and overly cautious in everything
he does, as he believes that even a very small mistake can
have disastrous consequences.
