A Normil Day
Rick Normil is used to superhero problems. In fact, he was woken up by an interdimensional imp just this morning. Before noon, he's had his body hijacked, met a ghost, and seen one of the world's most powerful heroes taken over by a villain. Rick will have to use all his resources, including a superpowered zombie, to return everyone to their proper bodies—and then deal with the aftermath. More
Rick Normil is used to superhero-related problems. He works at a newspaper that seems to be cursed to be involved in strange events, and it’s rubbed off. In fact, he was woken up by an inter-dimensional imp just this morning. But being a ghost is putting a crimp in his style.
Armand, another ghost, helps him get his bearings. But then there’s the question of who Armand is, and what he feels so guilty about. Armand has a devastating secret, one he’s prepared to keep from the whole world. He’s convinced that the world shouldn’t look like this—superheroes, supervillains, whole cities and countries—and he feels personally responsible for the shape of Rick’s life. He claims to have superpowers, but they come with conditions, and he’s reluctant to use them on Rick’s behalf.
Rick will have to convince him soon, however. Because the person who stole Rick’s body is on the move. Rick is friends with Guardian, one of the strongest superheroes in the world, and the bodyjacker wants to become him. He uses Rick’s body to get close to Guardian, then takes Guardian over. Rick will have to use all his resources, including Armand’s powers, the paper’s star reporter, and a superpowered zombie, to get Guardian’s body back. And then he’ll have a few words for the man, because Guardian was keeping a secret too . . .
A light-hearted superhero romp which deliberately borrows elements from various popular superhero stories, A Normil Day explores the life of a cosmic cat toy, and why it isn’t all bad. The world may be different—and yes, it is Armand’s fault—but people are more or less the same.
