'Oddly Normal, Vol. 2' by Otis Frampton continues Oddly's journey of discovery in Fignation. I liked it, but didn't feel like there was a ton of story advancement this time.

Oddly is living with her strange great aunt, and she is shown a room full of memories that her mother left behind. Oddly gets to see what happens before she was born, and then is whisked off to school, where she meets some new friends. I like Oddly because she does always make those around her feel better, even if it's just to make them a sandwich.

But we don't learn much more about where her parents are, or even advance Oddly's search for them. I felt more of a sense of wonder with the first issue, and that was lacking a bit this time, maybe because I was already familiar with the world. I did like the new characters that were introduced, and they could develop into interesting story points further down the road. I still think it's a fun graphic novel for younger readers.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Image Comics, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
