"Riddled with wit and bursting with as much mischief and behavioural insight as any Kyle Baker book, this collection of short strips and cartoons is exactly the sort of the masterclass in style and colour that you’d expect from the king of comics-orientated logo design." — Page 45

“Rian Hughes is a certified artistic genius. Amazing… there’s so much going on, you have to see it to believe it. Delightful… different… it says a lot about where we've been, and where we might be going. A wholly unique, incredible experience.” – Forces of Geek

Rian Hughes has got your number!

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? -- a full-color hardcover graphic novel with transparent dust jacket, 6” x 9” (portrait), 120 pages
