lol, wow. I know, as Transformers fans, we like to complain about anything different and new, but I'm pretty surprised here. So, it's a Zombie story. Yeah, other comic book companies have done that before. Yeah, as far as we can see, zombies seem like a minor threat to Transformers. But, really, whats wrong with just having a little fun like this? It'll probably end up as it's own canon/universe, so whats the harm? Transformers comics are not going to be ruined FOREVER
because of this.
From most reports this crossover will be in-continuity for all the series involved. I might be wrong so don't hold me to that and if I'm wrong I'm sure someone will correct me on it.
Since I hate zombies and I'm not interested in reading any of the Ghostbusters, Star Trek, G.I. Joe,
and Zombies vs. Robots
comics so I'll pass on it. And I love IDW's current take on The Transformers
since I read All Hail Megatron
TPB vol. 1 and I love the new ongoing series (ask around I'm one the biggest defenders of the current series and of All Hail Megatron
) but Darth Bombshell is right, this stupid crossover serves no real reason, from a storytelling point of view, for any of the Infestation
books to exist,(or at least that I can tell) other than to milk fans out of their hard-earned money.
If it was Unicron, Q, Gozer, and Cobra-La teaming up to create some multiverse mayhem (and you could throw in some zombies and vampires with them) that doesn't take place in any of their continuities and was done for just for good old plain fun then I MIGHT
be interested in it. Does anybody here remember when crossovers were actually fun to read?
But zombies spreading through a multiverse? If I want that I could read any of the various Marvel Zombies
mini-series. Even with DnA writing it (two of the finest writers in comics today) IDW can't sell me on this mess.
I don't think that the Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Trek,
comics being published by IDW (and/or by any future publishers down the road) are ruined forever by this stupid crossover but IMHO it doesn't exactly doesn't help any of them either.
