'X-Men' Writer Announces Creator-Owned Series 'Numbercruncher'

Titan Comics, the new initiative from Titan Publishing, announced a new creator-owned series Numbercruncher.

The series is written by X-Men Legacy writer Si Spurrier and illustrated by 2000AD artist P.J. Holden

It is the story is about a young mathematician who enters the afterlife and uncovers a way to cheat the chilling Divine Calculator.


Numbercruncher no.1 will launch on July 10, 2013. 


The Mathematician plots to be eternally reincarnated within the lifespan of the woman he loves, no matter how often the Karmic Accountancy try to cut short each life.


Bastard Zane wants to put an end to the time-twisting romance once and for all, “before the Mathematician can pull-off his greatest trick and escape Existential Justice forever!”

Co-creator Spurrier in a statement says, its a "time-travelling romantic comedy thriller with more twists than Agatha Christie's corkscrew."

Adds Titan Senior Comics Editor Steve White, “Numbercrunchers is one of those intensely personal yet universally brilliant projects you just can’t wait to get into print."

The series will also be available exclusively through comiXology.com and the ComiXology app on the iPad, iPhone, Android, and Kindle Fire.
