Robert Kirkman announced his first new title in three years at New York Comic ConOblivion Song. The title will be drawn by Lorenzo De Felici and focuses on a world dealing with a global supernatural tragedy. Oblivion Song differs from The Walking Dead as it doesn't deal with an apocalyptic collapse of society and won't take ten years to be adapted to television.

Ten years before the comic begins, 30-square miles of land from another dimension are suddenly transposed into an American city. With the "Transference" come hordes of gargantuan monsters and a strange fungus-like substance that eventually leads to some 20,000 people being murdered. In time, the city is able to reclaim some of its territory and drive most of the creatures behind a wall that separates them from the slice of interdimensional wasteland that lies beyond.

Oblivion Song is set to release March 7, 2018.
