Ordinary Gods #3

Ordinary Gods #3 seemed a little slow out the gates at first — assuming you got a little confused with some of the names being thrown around at first, like me. Once I realized what the first few pages were setting up, my jaw dropped.

One of the things that’s so interesting about Higgins’ story is the everyday people in this world who have no clue what’s truly going on. Some serious chaos is set to take place in Ordinary Gods #3, similar to what we saw in the series-opening issue.

Sure, it all makes sense when you have an understanding of what’s really up with the major players of this story. But I am fascinated by the ugly optics the characters that can come with some of the actions taking place.

Based on the ending of Ordinary Gods #3, things could get even more twisted in this prison world we all simply know as Earth. Pairing the bizarre nature of this story with Felipe Wantanabe’s art also adds to the range of emotions through these first issues.

As for the story’s main character, Christopher, readers only spend a little time with him in Ordinary Gods #3. A lot of the moving parts are centered around him, of course. But this issue shows readers more of what’s going on with some of the story’s other moving pieces.

Score: 8.5
