ODDLY NORMAL CONJURES UP ADVENTURE IN MARCH
Children’s graphic novel from Image Comics explores themes of bullying and imagination
The charming and otherworldly ODDLY NORMAL by Otis Frampton tells the story of a girl who doesn’t feel like she fits in, no matter where she goes. The young heroine of the March graphic novel from Image Comics endures the bullying of other kids for her green hair and pointed ears. Oddly got those traits from her mother, who is a witch, but didn’t get the ability to use magic along with them. Or so she thought.
A fateful wish on her 10th birthday leads to her parents disappearing, and Oddly must travel with her eccentric Auntie to Fignation, the weird world of supernatural beings, to find out how to get them back — if she can get them back. There, as the first “Earther” that her new classmates have ever seen, Oddly feels as much of an outsider as ever. Continue reading Preview: ‘Oddly Normal’ Book 1
Oddly Normal is a stranger in a strange land. Or maybe she’s not. Who’s to say what is strange in Fignation? Or what’s normal, for that matter. Oddly Normal’s first day in Fignation is one she’s not likely to forget because, for the first time, she doesn’t feel out of place. Until she gets to school, that is. Seriously, even the kids in another dimension can be mean. This comic is just plain fun, no doubt about that. Oddly has taken her first step into a larger world. Otis Frampton has done an excellent job with this comic. He has made a creative and fun book that can be enjoyed by all ages. Check out a preview. Continue reading Review: Oddly Normal #3
