New Comics Day | Preview | January 15th


Wednesday is nearly upon us so it’s time to take a look at new and noteworthy additions to your pull list. So here are my picks for the Wednesday 15th of January.


Numbercruncher Collected Edition

Also out today (14th January) is the collected edition of Si Spurriers’ Numbercruncher published by Titan Comics.

Heaven: the ultimate bureaucracy.

At its head, not a white-haired anthropomorphic deity with a harp and a throne but a wizened,weaselling old man with bad breath and bad attitude. At his right hand, Bastard Zane, a surly civil servant with a big gun whose job it is to stop those who think they can buck karma.

And then there’s Richard Thyme: genius mathematician and a man who will do whatever it takes to defy Fate and return to his one true love — even if he is dead.

Cue a critically-acclaimed and twisted tale of reincarnation, resurrection and Karmic Accountancy! Mesmerisingly written by the superb Si Spurrier (X-Men: Legacy, Crossed: Wish You Where Here) with gorgeous art from PJ Holden (2000 AD) and colorist Jordie Bellaire (Captain Marvel, Rocketeers, Manhattan Project), this is for anyone who has ever wanted to beat the system — senseless!

Numbercruncher is available now in hardback from titan-comics.com.


Lenore #9

In more news from Titan Comics we’ve got a preview of Lenore #9 which hits comic stores tomorrow.

Taxidermy is missing and Lenore has an important question for him, so she forces Pooty and Ragamuffin to join her in a mighty quest, dressed as fantasy heroes, to rescue their lost friend from the evil clutches of something that is clutch-y. What obstacles will be thrown in the path of our brave and noble warriors? Honestly, no idea yet. Seriously, I just thought of this like 2 minutes ago while watching TV. It’ll be epic-y though. EPIC-Y!

This is the last issue before the big battle happens that destroys the town of Nevermore and forever costs one of the main characters their lives. It’s all been leading up to this. Well, not THIS, this. Next issue is the THIS, this. THIS is confusing. Whatevs…Lenore and gang do a fantasy quest. Funny happens. *Drops mic*

Lenore-2

Lenore-4
