Big Numbers (12 volumes)

Comics' most gifted writer, Alan Moore, tells the overlapping stories of those who live in Hamptonshire, England in such a way that fractal mathematics is shown to be a guiding factor in their (and our) existence. Moore's sense of drama portrays the most mundane activities and dialogues with edge-of-your-seat relevance. His adeptness at capturing various dialects is astounding.

Sienkiewicz's beautiful artwork is black-and-white in the first issue. Gradually, color is added until the all-color final issue. The working title for the series had been "The Mandelbrot Set," but Moore settled on "Big Numbers" as having more resonance.
