At the 1978 Boskone SF convention, over dinner, Robert Asprin, Lynn Abbey and Gordon Dickson came up with the idea of creating a shared universe fantasy series. In 1985 it was adapted to comic form by Starblaze Graphics.
THIEVES' WORLD is the story of a town... specifically, a town called Sanctuary. The residents of Sanctuary are spawned from the dark side of fantasy's finest writers - Lynn Abbey, Poul Anderson, Robert Lynn Asprin, Robin Bailey, John Brunner, C.J. Cherryh, Christine DeWees, David Drake, Diane Duane, Philip Jose Farmer, Joe Haldeman, Vonda McIntyre, Chris & Janet Morris, Andrew J. Offut, Diana Paxson, and A. E. Van Vogt. Under the brush of artist Tim Sale, the best-selling Thieves' World anthologies enter the realm of the graphic novel.
The first three graphic novels were later collected together and republished as a single, colorized volume.
