Rian Hughes Has Got Your Number! Top Shelf’s I Am A Number Out This Week

by Oliver MacNamee

Designer and illustrator, Rian Hughes, offers up a set of strips that look at the status quo and anyone’s potential to be more than just a number. Y’know, like Patrick McGoohan, The Prisoner.

Here’s a taster of this beautifully designed one-shot out this Wednesday, the 27th of December from Top Shelf.

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?
