Ordinary Gods’ First Two Issues Get New Printings
Kyle Higgins and Felipe Watanabe’s breakout hit—Ordinary Gods—has sold out completely at the distributor level. Image Comics is fast-tracking both issues #1 and #2 for reprint in order to keep up with increasing demand for the series ahead of the exciting Ordinary Gods #3 release this September.
The Ordinary Gods #1 and #2 reprints will feature new cover art by Watanabe and Igor Monti.
In Ordinary Gods, readers meet Christopher. He’s 22. He’s got two loving parents and a 12-year-old sister. He works at a paint store. He’s in therapy. And, as it happens, he’s the reincarnation of one of the Five gods from a realm beyond our own, leaders in the “War of Immortals.” Now, 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.
In Ordinary Gods #3, the series welcomes a new member to the creative team—Joe Clark—to join Higgins as a co-writer. Clark is a multiple award winning music composer and arranger whose compositions and arrangements have been performed by the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, Randy Brecker, Jon Faddis, Kurt Elling, Phil Woods, Ira Sullivan, the Minnesota Orchestra, players from the Chicago Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic, and more worldwide. His arrangements can also be heard on many albums, including Kanye West and Malik Yusef’s “G.O.O.D. Morning G.O.O.D. Night.” He will join Higgins and Watanabe as a permanent co-writer on the series going forward.
