UK – NumberCruncher Signing

numbercrunher.jpg.size-230

SIMON SPURRIER signs his new graphic novel NUMBERCRUNCHER at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 15th January at 6:00pm.

A time-twisting romantic thriller-noir metaphysical black comedy from the smash-hit writer of X-Men Legacy and Crossed: Wish You Were Here!

Numbercruncher is the story of a lovesick, dying Mathematician who cheats the rules of the Afterlife to be reincarnated within his lover’s lifetime… and faces the full force of Karmic Accountancy as a result. One Karmic agent – the surly Bastard Zane – must stop the time-twisting romance before the Mathematician can escape Existential Justice!

Simon Spurrier was physically born in the 80s but profiles an existential/curmudgeonly age of 103.

Working as an Art Director for the BBC in the armpit of the millennium, he took an unscripted tangent into the murky depths of Making Stuff Up On Paper and has since become an award winning author and graphic novelist.

His latest crime novel, A Serpent Uncoiled, was released to great critical acclaim in 2011, while his comics works includes Judge Dredd, Crossed, Gutsville, Six-Gun Gorilla, and the all-new, all-weird X-Men Legacy – part of the “Marvel Now” initiative.
