Oh, hell. "Infestation" wasn't bad enough for them? Now they're doing another mega-epic "event"?

Seriously, at what point does IDW officially give up the license?

I love all this hate for the comics. It makes me makes me feel like a proper outsider when NO ONE likes what I'm reading. ;)

I kid... Infestation is actually a best seller around here and the Transformers part of it has already gone out of print! :lol:

Apparently a large group of the comic readers don't even post here. :P

So? Just because something makes a lot of money and sells out doesn't mean it's quality. It means there's a lot of suckers out there wasting their money.

Yeah well I guess I'm one of those rare people who actually enjoys this and otherwise hates Ongoing altogether.
