Artist: Lorenzo De Felici
Colorist: Annalisa Leoni
Letterer: Rus Wooton

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?

 

If a catastrophic event befell our world and your family was taken away from you, how far would you go to find again? What would you risk? Would you face lands of unspeakable destruction? A lost world filled with the deadliest of creatures? Nathan Cole would. If it means getting those back he lost. He would go anywhere. He would risk everything.

Robert Kirkman (Walking Dead, Outcast) and  Lorenzo De Felici's new Skybound series, Oblivion Song, takes you to the far ends of the darkest places while tugging at your heart strings.

Gideon Falls #1

Heather's Pick

Writer: Jeff Lemire
Art: Andrea Sorrentino
Colors: Dave Stewart
Letter: Steve Wands

A brand-new ongoing series from the acclaimed bestselling creative team of Old Man Logan and Green Arrow! The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city's trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith.

 

A shadow has fallen on a small town. The Black Barn has appeared and the omen can only bring about death. Will the confluence of events that happen around the small town bring destruction or is it merely fate that will bring blood? When it comes to suspense. Conspiracy. Mystery. Gideon Falls from Image Comics is an absolute must. Issue #1 is here!

It is also... Sold out! The series is so good that we could not keep it on the racks. If you were not able to grab a copy while we had it, come in and make a pre-order. The 2nd Print will be available on April 4th.

Another week. Another set of books! Come by the store and we can offer you even more!
