UK – Ordinary Signing

OrdinaryRob Williams, Ben Oliver, and Simon Gurr appears for a signing of ORDINARY, the graphic novel, and AUTHORITY, HUMAN ON THE INSIDE at the Forbidden Planet Bristol Megastore on Saturday 1st November from 1 – 2pm.

For ORDINARY, Imagine a world where everyone has superpowers. That is, except you. You are the same old turgid, miserable, lonely loser, you’ve always been. 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-heel, divorced New York plumber, Michael Fisher.

The AUTHORITY, Earth’s last of defence, have performed God-like acts in their defence of the planet, whether defeating ancient gods or fending off inter-dimensional invasion forces. But these brave acts haven’t always endeared them to many in power, particularly in the United States. The President, tired of being embarrassed by what he views as a bunch of costumed freaks, sets a plan in motion that could very well destroy the Authority from the inside — a plan so cunning and unexpected, it’ll shake the Authority to their very core.

UK – Ordinary Launch Party

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.

D’Israeli – aka artist Matt Brooker – has created Future Shocks for 2000 AD, and Consequences, a one-off sequel to Timulo. He has drawn Judge Dredd, worked as a colourist on Miracleman and 2000 AD, and as an inker on Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and Grant Morrison’s Kill Your Boyfriend.
