Numbercruncher #1 is an extremely well-written comic. The writing flows well, and reads better than most other comics I have read. The story is a little boring, more so because it seems more like a prologue than its own story.

The main character, Bastard Zane, hates it in the afterlife. He works for the karmic accountancy. The afterlife is all about numbers, and the Divine Calculator, Zane’s boss, keeps it running smoothly. This is done by maintaining the smooth running of a “re-circulation” of souls, reincarnation.

That’s all fine until, one day in 1969, a dying mathematician realizes the true nature of the afterlife. He comes to the Divine Calculator to make a deal. Problem is, the Divine Calculator structures the deck in his favor. But this time, the mathematician might have a few equations he didn’t consider.

The art is well-made, and fits the story so well. The art flows just as well as the writing does. This comic is a great read, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes this sort of thing. I myself plan on keeping an eye on the series as it develops.
