Sean O’Keefe to Pen Script for Oblivion Song
O’Keefe’s latest project, Wonderland, which stars Mark Wahlberg with Peter Berg directing, recently wrapped filming. O’Keefe sold the first script based on the Robert B. Parker bestselling Spenser book series in a deal with Netflix.
Image/Skybound Entertainment’s Oblivion Song by Kirkman and De Felici features color work from Annalisa Leoni and the lettering of Rus Wooton. Additionally, Sean Mackiewicz serves as editor. It takes place a decade after 300,000 citizens of Philadelphia were suddenly lost in Oblivion. The government made every attempt to recover them… However, after many years, they gave up. Nathan Cole won’t.
He makes daily trips, risking his life to try and rescue those lost, alone and afraid, 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?
