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.
“Surreal and lovely, one of the most beautiful books of the year.”
“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?”
“Williams and D’Israeli have a fantasti comconcept on their hands."
“A great first issue... ORDINARY is anything but.”
“ORDINARY is a funny comic... a refreshing twist on the expected.”
