Issue #2 of critical smash Numbercruncher by Si Spurrier, PJ Holden & Jordie Bellaire hits comic stores next Wednesday 21st August and we’ve got a preview for you! If you haven’t read Mark’s stellar review of the first issue, click here (you really should).

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!
