Preview: Numbercruncher #1
Titan Comics newest series Numbercruncher, will be hitting stores on July 17, 2013. The off-the-wall romance mixing time-travel, life-after-death and coal-black comedy is by Si Spurrier and P.J. Holden.
Utterly unusual, vaguely insane, and unexpectedly heart-warming, Numbercruncher follows a brilliant mathematician who dies young, enters the afterlife and discovers a way to cheat the terrifying Divine Calculator. He schemes to be endlessly reincarnated within the lifespan of the woman he loves, no matter how often the violent bailiffs of the Karmic Accountancy cut short each life. It falls to one such bailiff – the surly Bastard Zane – to put a stop to the time-twisting romance once and for all, before the Mathematician can pull-off his greatest trick and escape Existential Justice forever!
Numbercruncher was originally serialized in black & white in Judge Dredd Megazine in the UK. The series is now being newly colored and expanded for the first time by Titan Comics.
