Robert Kirkman has confirmed that his series Oblivion Song has come to an end.
This is not the first time Kirkman has suddenly announced the launch or end of a new series. Walking Dead’s finale took a lot of people by surprise, but for those die hard fans of Oblivion Song, the letters page had to be a bit of a sad moment.
“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 end point…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.”
If you missed picking the issue up this week, you can also get it via digital formats if your comic book store is sold out.
