    When I interviewed Frampton several months ago in anticipation of Oddly Normal's release, he promised that if we gave him two issues, we'd be hooked into the story and would want to continue coming back into the world of Fignation. I've given him two issues, and I have to say"he's right. I want to come back again next month. Read Full Review

    Earnestly charming and curiously sincere, Frampton's "Oddly Normal" #2 captures the delight of dreaming unencumbered by the constraints of the real world. Anchored by a dynamic and engaging protagonist, and exploring an unpredictable world this title promises to bring readers on a journey worth taking. As Oddly Normal comes of age in a fantasy world she will remind the audience of the joy of believing in magic. Read Full Review

    Oddly Normal #2 is a good, but flawed issue. All of its flaws can be boiled down to one simple point: Not much happens. That's unfortunate given the hook and potential we saw last issue, but the writing and artwork are still pretty good despite this flaw. Hopefully the next issue can kick things back into action, because I would hate to see a series with this much potential drop any lower. Read Full Review

    "Oddly Normal" #2 is cute and fun, but falls short on plot progress. Hopefully, in future issues, Frampton can pack in more action while not sacrificing any of the smoothness of his pacing. Oddly does finally enter Fignation, and Frampton has built up enough interest and plot tension that readers who were hooked by the first issue will still be hooked. Read Full Review

    As previously mentioned, the first two chapters of Oddly Normal have focused mostly on its primary characters and striking a tone and pace with its readers. Frampton's writing is filled with energy and his choice to keep the panel-to-page ration down, allows the reader to move through the chapters incredibly quickly. For children and families, the story of Oddly Normal is a solid read and looks to offer a great new universe and fun stories issue to issue. Read Full Review
