UK – Ordinary Launch Party

ordinary.jpg.size-230Rob Williams and D’Israeli will be launching their new comic ‘Ordinary’ at the Forbidden Planet Bristol Megastore at 5:00 pm on Wednesday 28th May.

What if everyone woke up with superpowers – and it was the worst thing in the world?

When a strange plague gives every human being on the planet special powers, it’s seen as the next step in human evolution. But hope quickly turns to terror, as every war, terrorist attack, every crime, every simple street argument escalates to a truly horrific point.

The plague must be cured if humankind is to survive. The key lies in the blood of the only human being who didn’t get powers when the plague hit: A downtrodden, recently divorced New York plumber named Michael Fisher. The most ordinary man alive has suddenly become the most extraordinary person on Planet Earth. Giant baseball players, grannies ageing in reverse, a talking Grizzly bear. That’s nothing out of the Ordinary!

Rob Williams is a British comic book writer. Among a huge list of credits, he is a regular writer of JUDGE DREDD for 2000AD, including the hit series’ ‘Titan’ and ‘Trifecta’, he writes THE ROYALS for Vertigo, and recently was one of the writers on the ‘Into The Light’ official tie-in comic for Namco Bandai’s DARK SOULS II computer game.
