    Oblivion Song has all the makings of a sprawling dystopian epic. It presents a glimmer of hope in a sea of chaos, as these folks have found a way to survive in such hellish conditions. They've built a community and they work together to protect it. Nathan represents a threat to that. Will they stay or will they go? Read Full Review

    OBLIVION SONG #5 doesn't do much to move the story forward, but it certainly works to further develop every one of the characters. It's definitely worth checking out. Read Full Review

    The pace continues to be slow, but now we know what happened to Nathan's brother, and we know that the survivors are not completely helpless on Oblivion. Back on Earth, Nathan's team continues to struggle to keep it together with an encroaching military intervention threatening their work. Kirkman and De Felici continue to build their world and hopefully the plot moves forward considerably in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Chris Terry Jul 12, 2018

    Robert Kirkman is doing what he does best and telling us a good story. Issue #5 is peeling back more of the story and finally giving us the "reunion" it has been leading up to. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Shani Gohar Jul 12, 2018

    When dealing with established writers, it can be easy to compare their latest work with their most notable work. This can be a huge obstacle as with that success comes expectations that every issue of the new book delivers what hardcore fans loved about the previous ones. Robert Kirkman has proved time and again that he knows how to maintain the intrigue of fans and turn his books into ongoing gold. Oblivion Song isn't The Walking Dead. It isn't Invincible. It isn't Outcast. It doesn't need to be. I'm looking forward to seeing how this first story arc wraps up and how the team transforms this comic into a reputable behemoth if its own. Read Full Review
