Imagine a world where everyone has superpowers. That is, except you. You are the same old turgid, miserable, lonely loser you've always been. But when it comes to superpowers, apparently you can indeed have too much of a good thing. With everyone able to destroy tower blocks with a single punch, any minor fracas escalates into a city-leveling combat, and the world is now in ruins as terrorism and war threaten the very survival of the planet. What's needed is a return to normality, to devolve back from Superhuman to just human - and there's only one man for the job: down-at-heal, divorced New York plumber, Michael Fisher.

Reviews

"Williams and D'Israeli have concocted one of the most engaging and imaginative comics I've read in years." - Rick Remender "Rob and D'Israeli craft an uncut diamond of a premise into a warm, witty and wonderfully illustrated gem. This is lovely comics." - Al Ewing "Rob Williams and D'Israeli are masters of the big picture and the tiny details." - Douglas Wolk, author of 'Reading Comics: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean' "As brutal as it is funny and as intelligent and thought provoking as it is violent and gory, 'Ordinary' takes an age old idea and flips it completely on its head" - MASS MOVEMENT "One of the most critically acclaimed and interesting takes on the superhero genre in a long time" - FLICKERING MYTH "Recommended" - SCI-FI ONLINE "Williams's script crackles with his trademark wit and imagination" - BROKEN FRONTIER "Surreal and lovely, one of the most beautiful books of the year." Warren Ellis "Imagine a place where everyone has their own unique superpower, and you can tell just from looking at them what that story? Now imagine it done with wit and wonder, and a talking bear, and a bloke who can magic beer out of thin air. Who else but Rob Williams could write it?" Garth Ennis "Williams and D'Israeli have a fantasti comconcept on their hands." ComicbookResources.com "A great first issue... ORDINARY is anything but."
