Image Comics' "Oblivion Song" #3 goes to a second printing
There's an adage that says "it's always better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it." While this is certainly true for, say, lifesaving materials and things of that nature, there has to be some satisfaction as a retailer when a product outperforms your expectations. Such is the case with Image Comic and the third issue of Oblivion Song, which has sold out and is going to a second printing. It's always good to hear that good comics are performing well.
OBLIVION SONG ENSNARES MORE READERS, RUSHED BACK TO PRINT
PORTLAND, OR, 05/16/2018 — Issue #3 of the hot new series—OBLIVION SONG—from New York Times bestselling writer Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD, OUTCAST BY KIRKMAN & AZACETA) and breakout artist Lorenzo de Felici is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with rapidly growing customer demand.
“We massively overprinted issues one and two of this series, and thought for sure it would have found its level by issue three. We were wrong,” said Kirkman. “Everything about the launch of this series has been astounding thus far and it just keeps surprising us. We plan on keeping the early issues in print for as long as we can so new readers can dive in as the word spreads on this amazing series with stunning art by Lorenzo De Felici and Annalisa Leoni.”
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 still 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?
The second printing of Oblivion Song #3 and issue 4 of the series will both hit comic shops and digital retailers on June 13.
