After reading the first issue of Ordinary, I was worried somehow Williams would cop out in the finish. Actually, I thought he would cop out in the second issue. Instead, he cops out in the finale of the series. It’s not a one hundred percent cop out, but it’s in the high eighties. Williams gets a high B in coping out.
The comic starts just fine, however, which makes it all the more irritating. Regular guy Michael is still saving his kid, there are some fantastic visuals and some very humorous play off them in Williams’s plotting. It’s going just fine. Until the governments show up to fight over Michael and D’Israeli starts checking out as far as detail.
His composition is weak too. He has too many characters to track and so he just rushes through. The comic might survive it, if it just weren’t for Williams’s writing deficiencies.
Writer, Rob Williams; artist, D’Israeli; editor, Steve White; publisher, Titan Comics.
