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.

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.
