Image Comics ending Robert Kirkman series ‘Oblivion Song’ with issue 36

Press Release

Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici’s science fiction series Oblivion Song is ending with issue #36. Kirkman revealed it would be ending in the Oblivion Song #30 letters page, out today. Oblivion Song #31 will release this June, and with the series concluding with issue #36 the series will likely have its final issue release in November barring any delays.

As Kirkman says in the letters page, the project has been nearing a natural endpoint with issue #36. “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.”
