When everyone has a number, everyone knows their place. Lower numbers are better, higher numbers are less important, and that's just the way it is. But what if that number could change? You might try to buck the system and assert your individuality... or you might end up with a big fat zero. Big questions are explored and unexpected answers found in the first solo comics collection from award-winning designer & illustrator Rian Hughes. His whimsical, witty, and insightful strips reveal the lighter side of our obsession with social rankings. Where do you stand in the pecking order? Is your number up?

    Out of 5 stars I give it a 5. Over-all its a great read. I will definitely be picking up some copies for my friends and family. I dont see any speculation happening on this but, there are some awesome panels that I could see turning into viral memes. Done right this could be a marketing monster. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Dec 28, 2017

    Rian Hughes is a British graphic designer whose worked has appeared in numerous avenues, including the UK small press and of course 2000AD. His design skills are clearly abundant throughout this book. The one page “in-jokes” are a fine example of the delineation of the premise. The art is simple but effective, again demonstrating the virtues of its comic strip origins. The only problem I have with the book, and this is a small quibble, is that at 128 pages, the joke may for some feel a little flat towards the end. Still, if you want to take a break from the superhero world, with a book that cancause an instant smile before delivering a stronger message upon reflection, then this book is more than worth a look.
