Synopsis:

5 is the Perfect Number is the story of an old Mafioso who is forced out of retirement when his son is murdered. He lays down his fishing rod and picks up his pistols and goes looking for revenge.

Spare, romantic, surreal, 5 is the Perfect Number introduces one of the new European masters to British readers.

Review: "Hard-nosed modern noir doesn't get much darker or harder than in this touching story of an old Mafiosi hunting down the killer of his murdered son. Imagine Beat Takeshi remaking the final reel of The Godfather with pen and ink. It's so beautifully drawn that you'll quickly understand why when it comes to comics the Italians believe the Americans can't touch them" ( Time Out)

"Igor Tuveri, otherwise known as Igort, has produced what may well be the best crime comic of the past five years. What makes 5 is the Perfect Number stand out is the visual experience. Every page is a joy in composition and staging" ( Comics Journal)

"Set in a Neapolitan city-scape vividly, sinisterly rendered in blue and black ink, it is the tale of an old Mafia man's last sortie, with a wide-screen feel and a bitter-sweet ending" (Peter Millar The Times)

"In this moody, duotone graphic novel Igort, alias Igor Tuveri, breathes an unexpected beauty into the gritty mafiosi genre, importing subtleties from Japanese cinema and manga" ( Dazed and Confused)

"Graphically beautiful, stunningly paced - each panel is a well observed moment frozen in time" ( Seth)
