Kyle Higgins and Felipe Watanabe court divinity with Ordinary Gods
On the heels of sales beast Radiant Black, Kyle Higgins courts divinity in an upcoming collaboration with The Flash’s Felipe Watanabe, Ordinary Gods. This centuries-spanning epic sci-fi/fantasy series is set to launch from Image Comics on July 7.
This monumental new series of mythic proportions will debut with an extra-length first issue. Each issue will also feature stunning, wraparound cover art from such artists as Dave Johnson, Nicola Scott, Declan Shalvey, Rod Reis, Tula Lotay, Dan Panosian, and series artist Watanabe, all with colors by the Eisner Award-winning Matt Wilson.
The Luminary. The Prodigy. The Brute. The Trickster. The Innovator. Five gods from a realm beyond our own, leaders in the “War of Immortals.” At least, they were—before they were trapped, sent to a planet made into a prison, forced into an endless cycle of human death and reincarnation.
Ordinary Gods follows 22-year-old Christopher. He’s got two loving parents and a 12-year-old sister. He works at a paint store. He’s in therapy. He’s one of the Five. Which means, in order to save everyone he cares about, Christopher will have to reconnect with his past lives and do the unthinkable: become a god again.
