The Bastard vs. The Mathematician: Numbercruncher #4


My buddy Bastard Zane has not had an easy time of it. This sneaky Mathematician just refuses to stay dead and give Zane the chance to get the hell out of his lousy job, and he’s making Zane look like a damned fool in the process. You’d be ticked off, too.

On the other hand, true love keeps the Mathematician coming back, again and again, across time, trying to get back to the woman he loves – even if he’s driving her crazy in the process.


It all comes to a head next week, with Numbercruncher #4. Titan calls this issue the “shock conclusion of the critically acclaimed temporal afterlife adventure!”  Will Bastard Zane finally get what he wants? Will the Mathematician? What does the Karmic Accountancy have to say about the whole thing – and does he have one last card to play that will change the game for everyone?

This is the last issue of the Numbercruncher miniseries, but I’m just not ready to say goodbye to Bastard Zane. Si and PJ, please tell me you’ve got something else lined up for him in the future!

In the meantime, check out a preview of Numbercruncher #4:
