A decade ago, 300,000 citizens of Philadelphia were suddenly lost in Oblivion. The government made every attempt to recover them, but after many years, they gave up. Nathan Cole...won't. He makes daily trips, risking his life to try and rescue those still living in the apocalyptic hellscape of Oblivion. But maybe...Nathan is looking for something else? Why can't he resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?

    Oblivion Song offers Kirkman fans a chance to start something new, just in case they are getting a little worn out by the constant "everyone versus us" element of The Dead, with a book that hides it complexity behind a veil of a cartoon style art. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 15, 2018

    There's still something intriguing here and I'll be back to read more of Oblivion Song. The new trend in comics seems to be safe first issues that excite the reader just enough to bring them back and then to wow them with the second issue. We'll see if that's true here. If you're a fan of Kirkman's this is an easy sell. It's vintage Kirkman and he's found a balance between the Apocalypse and the modern world. His writing is comfortable here and he has a talented artist guiding the story. The flip side of this is that if you're tired of Kirkman's writing, this isn't likely to bring you back to his books.
