It's cool that they are doing the Prime comic as a prequel to the tv show. We get to see more of Cliffjumper and get some back-story seeing as how the show left us with a big hole in that department.

As for the Infestation comic...Don't know how they are going to tie that one into the Transformers story arc and actually not all that interested in that aspect. I'm curious about it as a stand alone deal. Just those few pages and the short character bios were enough to get my interest. I don't think IDW will need Giant F'ing Robots or Starship Enterprise crews to make this zombie tale a winner.

Next up... Star wars and Zombies!

Oh yeah, they already did that....

Darn, I wanted something that had a crossover event. G.I. Joe meets Transformers meets Star Trek and the other thing!

"These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise, pursued by zombies with the Nemesis on our tail, so we have F-22's bombing them..." *Cue original startup music*

The transformers prime one, well we all know Arcee survives. And Cliffjumper Dies, so its all good over here.

The Transformers Prime comic looks alright, but even Transformers and Ghostbusters combined can't prevent Infestation from looking crap. Zombies are overrated and crap, IMHO.

I really like the atwork for the last two covers of Infestation. Not too impressed with what's inside though.....but hey. It's better than what i can do.
