Image Releases Jim Valentino’s Complete normalman this July!
A Visitor From Another Planet crash lands on Levram, where everyone has super powers except him! Rocketed into space by his junior CPA father (who thought his planet was about to explode — it didn’t), he traveled for 20 years and is about to embark on a series of senses-shattering misadventures under the wing of the witless Captain Everything. Image Comics proudly presents Jim Valentino’s masterpiece of superhero satire – The Complete normalman!
Image Comics publisher Erik Larsen says, “Valentino’s normalman reads like a celebrity roast of the history of comics. 25 years after his first appearance, norm, Captain Everything, Sgt. Fluffy, Nasty Girl, Rotten Kid, and the rest of the gang remain a cutting and hilarious commentary on all the excitement and excess of comics. We’re proud to be introducing norm’s adventures to a new generation in the first ever definitive edition.”
The Complete normalman collects every single normalman story, including all 13 issues of the original series, plus the normalman/Megaton Man crossover, the normalman 20th Anniversary Special, rarely seen convention strips, advertisements, covers, and more. Experience the greatest superhero satire of them all under one cover this July!
The Complete normalman ships this July, and is available in Diamond Previews (MAY071861). It is 432 pages, and is a black and white trade paperback with a cover price of $19.95.
