Netflix drops first trailer for an anime super-heist based on a Mark Millar comic

Netflix’s Super Crooks sounds like Suicide Squad meets the Ocean’s movies.

The upcoming anime adaptation of a 2012 comic from Kingsman and Kickass creator Mark Millar got its first trailer on Saturday morning. It’s the story of Johnny Bolt, a newly released ex-con who has two major assets: Superpowers, and a desire to use those abilities in the service of a heist.

So Johnny sets himself to assembling a team of similarly powered-up individuals and shenanigans, of course, ensue. This trailer is more style than substance, but the slick patter and dark sense of humor immediately create a vibe and showcase the talents of Bones, the acclaimed anime studio behind My Hero Academia that’s charged with handling the adaptation.

Super Crooks is coming to Netflix with 13 episodes, all 30 minutes apiece, on Nov. 25.
