    This plot had a set-up that I really enjoyed. A weird catastrophe transmits about ten square miles of Philadelphia into an alternate dimension and vice versa (or something of the sort, thankfully it does not get bogged down with the exact mechanics of this). Weird flora and fauna are i...

    Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Robert Kirkman's books have been somewhat hit-or-miss for me, so I was a little skeptical about how this one would turn out. A section of a city in Pennsylvania gets overrun by monsters and a large p...

    This first arc of Oblivion Song is setting up a pretty cool story. In typical Kirkman fashion, the characters and how they are developing takes center stage while the world they are in is there to tweak everything and add that little extra special something. Not much else to say. It...

    A decade after part of the city disappears, our main character is still dedicated into entering the monster infested area to search for survivors. The government wants him to stop, and not all who are rescued were necessairyly looking to go home. I'm impressed with what Kirkman has...

    I read and enjoyed an advance edition of the first trade, featuring four of the first six issues. It's a fun story that feels a little bit familiar, but the writing and characters are interesting and layered, and there's a compelling twist at the end of issue 4 that sets up much confli...

    I received an ARC of this graphic novel at BEA 2018. There is no doubt that Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead and Outcast) writes a good story. 10 years after the transference, a rift that opened to another plane of existence, scientist Nathan Cole is still trying to recover his brother...

    This is an Advance Edition of the trade of the first four issues of Oblivion Song and I had to add it manually, so no review and no star rating because I'm not sure if I should yet. ...

    Interesting new series by Robert Kirkman, but I?m not madly in love with the artwork. It?s quite different from Outcast or The Walking Dead, which is my favorite of Kirkman?s stuff. The inter-dimensional travel angle is nifty. I?m curious to see what comes next. ...

    Giant monsters walk the land while small groups of humans try to survive - Oblivion Song is basically Image?s answer to Dark Horse?s BPRD: Hell on Earth, and, like that series, it?s pants! The more detailed plot outline is that 10 years ago 300,000 people were transported to ...

    [Read as single issues] In one fell swoop, the world was changed. A section of Philadelphia was transported to an alternate dimension filled with monstrous creatures and dangers the likes of which the human race had never seen. Now, ten years later, only one person continues to vent...

    Apocalyptic sci-fi adventure story about Americans disappearing into a (parallel?) dimension infected by strange creatures. Story: starts simple and ALMOST generic but reveals interesting details later on. I'm guessing this is a much bigger story than it Art style: Italian arti...

    The Walking Dead + Black Science + Black Hammer. That's Oblivion Song. I had not heard anything about Kirkman's newest title until I was lucky enough to get my hands on an Advance Reader Edition TPB, featuring the first six issues. From the synopsis alone, I knew it was right up ...

    Oblivion Song Vol 1 is a great sci-fi horror comic by the creator of The Walking Dead. Oblivion was created ten years prior when Philadelphia was overrun by huge alien beasts from an alternate dimension. Unfortunately, the beasts like the taste of human flesh. 20,000 are missing and...

    The art was dope! The story was awesome. I love the semi post?apocalyptic vibe. I read books 1?6 in one go and plan on starting on Vol. 7 & Vol. 8 really soon. ...

    I found the premise very intriguing. Part of Philadelphia gets transported to another dimension full of giant monsters. Now it's 10 years later, a scientist has figured out how to reach the other dimension and is bringing the people back one by one. This would be 5 stars for me if it w...

    My reading/opinion might be hindered because this was a physical ARC and not the final copy. This was a solid intro to a new series but I wasn?t connecting to the characters. For a start my reading felt disjointed due to a lack of chapter separation. I?m hoping the final copy ad...

    Fantastically written otherworld fantasy meets gritty drama. The artwork is beautiful, my only complaint is the coloring?s monochromatism can sometimes muddy details. Other than that, I?m excited for this series more than anything else by Kirkman. ...

    THE WALKING DEAD and BLACK SCIENCE had a baby, and they named it OBLIVION SONG. It's not as dark as either of its parents, but not quite as engaging either. The post-apocalyptic survival-horror aspect of the story doesn't appeal to me. A large portion of this story feels copied-and-...

    I was a bit sceptical at the start. I found it awfully slow with the world building and the introduction of the characters. Ive always enjoyed post apocalyptic themed stories and this was no exception. The slow build up really ramped up until the ending. I can see the world or worlds b...

    One arc into Robert Kirkman?s new series ?Oblivion Song,? and I think I can already say pretty definitively that I?m hooked. Like in ?The Walking Dead? and ?Outcast,? Kirkman nails the perfect tone, simultaneously leaning full-on into the high concept of his premise whi...

    This was an interesting start to a new series - I haven't read TWD by Robert Kirkman, so I can't compare this series to it. However I thought the story was intriguing and I'm excited to see where it goes next! The basic premise is that many people have gone missing in the Oblivion - ...

    Well, despite my friends disagree on this, I like Oblivion song. The story, world and the art. De Felici's art, for me, bit resonates with my favourite David Rubn, and I really like it. It's playful, colourful, strong inking and sharp style. I'm really enjoying that. And I really enj...

    Premisa je zajimava, ale rozjezd je dost vlaznej, takze do nejakyho finale prvniho story arcu sem se doslova pronudil. Nicmene od nejakyho patyho sesitu to zacina nabirat grady. Puvodne sem to chtel zahodit uplne, ale druhymu booku dam nakonec jeste sanci. Kresba mi moc nesedla, ...

    The events are treated something similar to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. That along with PTSD themes strike strong emotional chords. The main character along with supporting cast develop well while maintaining a sense of realism as they face otherworldly creatures. This sci-fi fantasy c...
