Oddly Normal Looks at Nightmare Wishes


Birthday cake tastes delicious, inspires a bout of singing and comes with the promise that if you blow the candle out you'll be granted a wish. While two of the three are generally pretty guaranteed, the third is a little less sure to happen. That's especially the case in Oddly Normal from Image Comics. And in Oddly Normal #1 by Otis Frampton, Oddly’s life is an unhappy blend of the magic and mortal worlds, but just when she thought life couldn’t get anymore miserable, one innocent wish throws her life asunder. With her safety abruptly thrown into great peril Oddly must travel to the land of Fignation to try to save her family and get back the life she took for granted.

"I'm looking forward to taking readers on a fun ride," said Frampton. "Fignation is the collective imagination of humanity and Oddly is going to be stuck there for a while. Monsters, magic, super-heroes, time-travel... expect all of it in Oddly Normal."

Filled with steampunk-esque creatures, magical new alliances, floating dirigible, and a nefarious mystery, Oddly’s adventure is anything but normal. Oddly Normal is a witty, world-building fantasy sophisticated enough to enchant adults and whimsical enough to inspire the imaginations of younger audiences. Oddly Normal #1 arrives in stores September 17 and will be available for $2.99 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code JUL140443.
