NUMBERCRUNCHER #1-4 (Si Spurrier / P.J. Holden)

It’s a time-twisting romantic thriller crime-noir metaphysical sci-fi black comedy

Un mathématicien ayant découvert l’équation de la vie marchande avec le Calculateur Divin pour retrouver l’amour de sa vie. Malheureusement, il est ressuscité 60 ans trop tard. De son coté, Bastard Zane n’attend qu’une chose: que le matheux vive sa seconde vie aux cotés de sa belle pour qu’il vienne honorer son contrat en le remplaçant au département karmique.

C’est le point de départ de la nouvelle mini-série Numbercruncher du scénariste anglais Si Spurrier (X-Men Legacy), réalisée en collaboration avec le dessinateur P.J. Holden pour l’éditeur Titan Books.

Le premier numéro de cette mini-série en quatre chapitres sort en juillet.

From the smash-hit writer behind X-Men Legacy!
Dying young, a brilliant Mathematician discovers a way to cheat the terrifying Divine Calculator.
He schemes to be endlessly reincarnated in the life 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 Karmic agent - 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![/quote]

Nothing worse’n a Mathematician in love.
As he died, in 1969, a Mathematician glimpsed the equation that drives the universe. This allowed him to strike a deal with the Divine Calculator: to be reincarnated, with all his memories intact, for another chance with the woman he loves.
In exchange, when he dies for a second time, he’ll go straight into the workforce of the Afterlife, setting free another operative - a surly chap in a bowler hat by the name of BASTARD ZANE.
But the Divine Calculator has a horrible sense of humor, and he’s incarnated the Mathematician thirty years after his death, in a poverty pit on the other side of the planet. The Mathematician still has a plan to spin things in his favor… but Zane isn’t taking any chances with his cosmic get-out clause.
After all, they don’t call him BASTARD for nothing![/quote]

Bastard Zane is hot on the Mathematician’s heels, as the reincarnating schemer dives back through time and lifetimes to be with the woman he loves, again and again, across a hundred different incarnations!
The Divine Calculator wants the Mathematician’s mind under his contract, and Zane wants his freedom from the fulfilment of the same… so it’s time to warm up his maths-driven accident gun - and kill the bloody genius as many bloody times as he can bloody reincarnate!
But when you’re dealing with a dead man as smart as this one, things are never going to go smoothly![/quote]
