The Number

A couple of weeks ago Fantagraphics Books released another wonderful Thomas Ott hardcover volume, The Number. Thomas Ott is a cartoonist from Switzerland and all of his comics feature stories that are wordless and drawn in a beautiful scratchboard style and have a Twilight Zone quality to them.

The Number is about a man who's on death row who gives a piece of paper with a number on it to a guard and as the reader experiences The Number they see how that number (73304-23-4153-6-96-8) affects different people who come in contact with it.
