Oblivion Song #1

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. You can almost hear the soft, echoing song alluded to in the title. This is a must pick up. So come by and grab a copy today.

Colorist: Dan Brown
Letter: Travis Lanham
Mephisto has taken up some major real estate in Las Vegas, but he's not going to stop there. He's got the rest of Earth on his "TO GET" list and only Doctor Strange can stop him. The only downside? Strange went into Mephisto's Hotel Inferno to confront him and has not been seen since. Add in the fact that the devilish villain has already corrupted several Avengers... Wong and his rag-tag group of mystical heroes look like they're in serious trouble.
The mystical shoe is on the other foot! But is it the wrong foot? Doctor Strange is fighting with all he can but he is trapped. It is up to his team of mystical heroes to help save him and... The entire world! But... Can they get to Mephisto in time? This new(ish) mini-series from Marvel is worth the grab, come by today if you haven't yet and grab the second issue in this magical Doctor Strange saga.
