The “math-inspired” A calculated man From writer Paul Tobin and artist Alberto Albuquerque, the comic series follows Jack Beans, an accountant who lives under witness protection after betraying his former employers, the Pinafore crime family. After three years, Beans decides to reclaim his old life, but what follows is a journey of murder, chaos and math.

“This was a very competitive situation, but creatively they not only understood our vision for the title and starring Jack Beans, but brought us a writer, Peter Calloway, who we had not only worked with before, but also presented us with a concept. That’s in sync with the devilishly fun creations of both Paul and Alberto,” said Jon Kramer, CEO of AfterShock Media.

“It’s not often that a story grabs you by the throat and your heart at the same time,” adds Calloway. †A calculated man did just that. The moment I read the wonderful, outrageous book by Paul and Alberto, I was excited to bring it to the screen.
