Image Comics, 2019
Nathan Cole begins this second chapter on trial, explaining how the original experiment had gone horribly wrong, and why he was so personally driven to try to correct it. Director Ward (the general who is holding Cole) announces his intention to use the dimensional shifter as a weapon, which is enough to motivate Cole's girlfriend Heather (who works for Ward) to release him. Meanwhile Nathan's brother Ed (who he brought back from Oblivion in the first arc) is struggling to fit in back on the home world. Ed has decided he wants to stay in Oblivion--and when Nathan argues with him he triggers the device, causing another chunk of Philadelphia to switch places with the Oblivion dimension. Lots of big monster fight scenes later, Ed is back in Oblivion, joined by his friend Lucy. The collection ends with a strange scene of a human prisoner and an alien creature who appears to be trying to imitate him...a new twist for the next installment.
