    Not the greatest start to a new series, although there is potential here. I wasn't really clear on what was going on for much of the story (hadn't read the back cover blurb which basically summarizes what happened--if you can't figure it out from the story, well...). The artwork was pr...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    I've followed Kirkman pretty faithfully since Battle Pope. It's not all diamonds, but Invincible is my favorite superhero series ever, so with that over, I have to be read to read and appreciate Oblivion Song right? Anyway, it's here, and it's pretty good! The premise is awesome, with ...

    A solid start to a new series that has captures my interest. The plot itself isn't anything groundbreaking but I enjoyed the narration of it and the artwork. It's still early in its introduction of the storyline though so things could really shake up, for better or worse. ...

    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 ...

    I received a promotional ARC of this comic, however, this hasn?t influenced my review about it. When I first read the idea, the basic plot, of this graphic novel I thought it would be super cool. I?m usually in for story lines that look like alternate dimensions, people disappea...

    This was a good opening but I guess I was expecting more. So we start off with a guy running away from monsters, shooting people, and then everyone teleports back to the real world. We learn that there's another dimension, world, and it took a good amount of our people in a certain...

    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...

    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...

    Love the concept. Parallels to the book/ movie 'Annihilation', so if you like that, you'll probably like this. Not the biggest fan of the art. It's not that it's bad, it's just that it doesn't feel like it pairs well with the story or mood. ...

    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...

    "It's safe enough." Chapter One of Robert Kirkman's newest venture, Oblivion Song, sets up a pretty interesting premise with a story that gradually gets better over the course of the book and a finale that, whilst it didn't have any real impact on me, definitely made me want to pi...
