PORTLAND, OR, 05/16/2018 — Issue #3 of the hot new series—OBLIVION SONG—from New York Times bestselling writer Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD, OUTCAST BY KIRKMAN & AZACETA) and breakout artist Lorenzo de Felici is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with rapidly growing customer demand.
“We massively overprinted issues one and two of this series, and thought for sure it would have found its level by issue three. We were wrong,” said Kirkman. “Everything about the launch of this series has been astounding thus far and it just keeps surprising us. We plan on keeping the early issues in print for as long as we can so new readers can dive in as the word spreads on this amazing series with stunning art by Lorenzo De Felici and Annalisa Leoni.”
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 #3, 2nd printing (Diamond Code MAR188797) and OBLIVION SONG #4 (Diamond Code APR180613) will hit stores on Wednesday, June 13th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, May 21st.
