Oblivion Song, Vol. 1 Reviews
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 artist Di Felici's Franco-Belgian/European serious cartoon style creates a good reading flow. The monsters and scenarios are a beautiful mix between colorful and atmospheric. The perspectives are cinematic; characters look uni ...more
Meine Liebe zu Comics reicht weit zurück, beruht allerdings hauptsächlich auf Asterix&Obelix sowie den Abrafaxen und erst vor wenigen Monaten habe ich (neben Animes und Mangas) das Subgenre der Graphic Novels entdeckt. Nachdem ich dann einiges online gelesen habe, war ich mir immer noch nicht sicher, wo genau ich mit dem Lesen anfangen sollte – und dann habe ich auf Lovelybooks die Leserunde für „Oblivion Song“ gesehen.
Für den ersten Band der Reihe (und auch für die folgenden) haben sich der ...more
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, ale da se na to zvyknout. Proste klasicka Evropa :D.

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 venture into that alternate dimension, intent on finding his lost brother and anyone else that is still alive and fighting to get back home - Nathan Cole cannot resist the allure of the Oblivion Song.

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. Its a slow burn...but I find all of Kirkman's work to be like that and I don't mind. It's fun to let things simmer and stew until they explode with confidence.
I'm a sucker for anything post-apocalyptic feeling and this d ...more
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.
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 presumed dead.
Nathan works in a poorly funded facility that goes to Oblivion to rescue any remaining humans. When he catches two humans and teleports them back to Earth’s dimension, they tell him of 100 humans survivi ...more
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 while also being sure to pepper it with characters that we actually give a hoot about. It doesn’t hurt that Lorenzo De Felici’s art is GORGEOUS, cartoony while somehow also being genuinely adult. Time will only tell if “Oblivion Song ...more
