Today, Image Comics and Robert Kirkman confirmed the end of his apocalyptic comic book series Oblivion Song in the issue #30 letters page.
“If you’ve been paying attention to the buildup of this story from arc to arc, you might have suspected that we were nearing a natural endpoint…and we are, issue #36 was always planned to be the final issue,” wrote Kirkman. “When we conceived of this series, I thought of it as a trilogy of 12-issue arcs. Looking back, you can see the time jumps between #12 and #13, as well as #24 and #25, marked definitive chapter breaks along the way. That was by design.”
Oblivion Song takes place in an apocalyptic Philadelphia and follows Nathan Cole as he attempts to rescue the citizens lost in Oblivion. The series is co-created by Robert Kirkman (writer) and Lorenzo De Felici (artist), with Annalisa Leoni as the colorist. Issue #31 hits stands this June, and the series will conclude with issue #36. The series is currently in development for a film adaptation at Universal.
Oblivion Song #30 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, February 24.
Oblivion Song #30 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play. You can pre-order or purchase it through our ComiXology link.
