About

Who makes this comic?

Thieves Can’t is written by Bartholomew Klick and Zachary Stoppel. We write it together. Zach draws it, and Bart letters.

This is us.

Bart has an orange die he never uses. Zach loves this die and calls it “Lucky Orange.” Whenever they play D&D, Zach fishes Lucky Orange out of Bart’s dice bag. Bart has tried to give Lucky Orange to Zach on no fewer than twenty occasions. Zach refuses. The luck of the dice would be ruined if it were his and not Bart’s.

Zach has discord, facebook, a phone, and a reddit account. At any given game week, his notifications will light up like a night sky in early July. They are all from the same person — Bart — who is one of those bizarre creatures that prefers to DM than to play. Bart is a player wrangler. He keeps a book of people’s schedules. Zach believes that this is “a super power,” but the reality is that the game will be ruined if people don’t show up.

We met in college, decided to make comics when we each respectively realized that the other one wasn’t a dangleberry, and then started playing D&D whenever we got a chance.

Is this comic from a real game of D&D?

No. It’s based on our experiences as players and as DMs, but nothing comes from any one game. Sometimes we pull a joke directly from the table, but it’s quite rare. Thieves Can’t is a fiction about playing D&D.

Who are the players?

Well, Sera from Ramen Empire is the DM. Feel free to speculate about the others.
