    The book skips ahead three years from each character's perspective and we see what they've been up to in the intervening years. There's a lot of great things in this book. Unfortunately, the art isn't one of them. There are some long passages without any dialogue and I have an incredibly difficult time telling what's happening solely from the art, especially when they are on the alien planet. The fight sequences just look like random lines on the panel to me.

    My favourite volume of Oblivion Song so far. This was genuinely breathtaking and I swear my heart rate was actually elevated reading this one. The only bird poo in my pint was learning the next volume will be the last, damnit! My next book: Here’s Negan! My favourite volume of Oblivion Song so far.

    This was an intense and action-packed volume. Much of this volume has the reader exploring what's happened in the three year timeskip, as we cut to one character's perspective to another while slowly building the ongoing story in the background. It culminates in a big invasion force war between Oblivion and Earth, with some incredible fights and impressive display of artistic range. There's still a lot of drawn-out exposition that makes the story deeper but a bit bogged down, though all of that This was an intense and action-packed volume.

There's still a lot of drawn-out exposition that makes the story deeper but a bit bogged down, though all of that can be forgiven for the deeper emotional moments and the action scenes. The first issue of the volume probably has more pages without dialogue than pages with dialogue, the art really tells most of the story here. Kirkman knows when to step back and let De Felici go wild, and by the end we get treated to some great art not just of the Oblivion setting and creatures but some good old Earth fighter jets and explosions. It's another fantastic volume in this series and I look forward to seeing where this goes next after how this volume ends.

    Three years later, and everything's going wrong. Oblivion is invading, Nathan is missing, and Earth is woefully unprepared. This volume really kicks things into high gear. There's a lot of plot progression, some more heartfelt reunions, and a cliffhanger ending that turns the series on its head in a way that only Robert Kirkman can pull off. De Felici's artwork remains superb, and Kirkman always knows when to get out of the way and let him do the heavy lifting. Apparently there's only 6 issues of Three years later, and everything's going wrong. Oblivion is invading, Nathan is missing, and Earth is woefully unprepared.

    A three year time leap brings us right up to the invasion countdown! Oblivion Song is yet another hit from Robert Kirkman, expertly paced, with carefully crafted characters. I mean, they're not particularly deep characters, but I care about them and don't want to see them decapitated. This being Kirkman, of course, I'm waiting for that guillotine to arrive. As predicted, I forgot a lot from volume four, so I was a bit thrown off by the alien homeworld and political battles taking place there.

As predicted, I forgot a lot from volume four, so I was a bit thrown off by the alien homeworld and political battles taking place there. I also would have enjoyed more time in Oblivion with Nathan, and perhaps more time on Earth with those left behind. All told, this volume felt a tad rushed, but it still had plenty of pages dependent entirely on Lorenzo de Felici's art for storytelling. Kirkman is one of the few writers who can get away with leaning so heavily on his artists. I really appreciate it! Comics don't always need speech bubbles to tell me what's going on. Anxiously awaiting the sixth volume! If it really is the last one, I'll probably have to read the whole series straight through to catch all the nuances I forget between volumes.

    Robert Kirkman is a fine writer. But titles like Oblivion Song are a real disappointment, because it just feels like it needed more time to marinate before it was ready. But why wait, when you’re churning out as many comics as possible in the hopes somebody might develop them for the screen and give them the depth and polish they lack on the page? I can’t begrudge Kirkman for using Skybound to develop so many screen properties. More power to him. But when his comics become little more than fancy Robert Kirkman is a fine writer.

But when his comics become little more than fancy studio pitches instead art to succeed on its original merits, there’s just not a lot to love here. Bad comics are sad. But halfhearted comics made by a genius are a real shame.

    I'm actually a little disappointed after reading this one. There's a lot of time skips in this volume, which I'm not entirely opposed to, but a lot of significant events happen that could have been entire stories themselves! I would have loved to seen more the leads learning how to interact with the aliens and becoming allies. We get some of that with Nathan while he's trapped on Oblivion, but I would have loved to see more of his wife and family back home working with the few alien survivors wh I'm actually a little disappointed after reading this one.

Missed potential, but still a good read. Onward to the finale!

    Lots of pages, not much plot. Mostly fighting with poorly thought out conversations.
