Get those checkbooks ready, television producers! Walking Dead mogul and Kentucky land baron Robert Kirkman is launching a new ongoing series with artist Lorenzo De Felici at Skybound in March 2018.
Called Oblivion Song, the new series is a sci-fi book and also features colors by Annalisa Leoni and letters by Rus Wooton. Newsarama has greedily sucked the solicit info out of the teat of Skybound’s marketing department:
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 lost, alone and afraid, 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?
Seems like a somewhat hyperbolic way to describe moving to the New Jersey suburbs, but we get. At least they have pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwiches.
The book hits stores on March 7, and we would be shocked if it hasn’t been optioned for TV or movies before then.
