Prolific writer and producer Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead, is taking on science fiction in a brand new comic unveiled today at New York Comic Con, Oblivion Song.

The book, which Kirkman described as “post-apocalypse adjacent,” is his first new comic in three years. It’s a collaboration with artist Lorenzo De Felici. Kirkman screened a trailer for the upcoming monthly series for fans:

The book, which Kirkman described as “post-apocalypse adjacent,” is his first new comic in three years. It’s a collaboration with artist Lorenzo De Felici.

Here’s the official description of Image Comics and Skybound’s Oblivion Song:

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?

Given Kirkman’s track record in launching comic properties like The Walking Dead and Outcast on the small screen, can an Oblivion Song TV series be far behind?

Oblivion Song #1, from Image Comics and Skybound, will be released on March 7, 2018.
