Optimus Prime vs. Cthulu? It's an unlikely fantasy battle, but apparently that's what IDW's "Infestation 2" has in store for us. As we know from the interview with IDW's Chris Ryall that was posted earlier today "Infestation 2" will introduce Lovecraftian mythos into the IDW universe, which will include the Transfomers "Hearts of Steel" timeline. Now artist Guido Guidi has treated fans with a sneak peek at one of his "Infestation 2" covers featuring Hearts of Steel Optimus Prime vs. Cthulu. Check out the awesome black and white cover art mirrored below from Guidi's deviantART page.

I wonder if this means that HOS Optimus will actually have a role in the story. I mean, besides taking a nap. :roll:

Sweet. I imagine this is going to be set in the Victorian era. Perhaps Arkham, MA will be used as the setting.

I was thinking since Mr. Dille was also behind the creation of one of my favorite Hasbro franchise, the Inhumanoids, which looking at some the characters, Tendrill, the Langastoids, and the whole series draws its inspiration from Lovcraft's works. That it would be a good time to revive them for IDWverse Transformers books. Even last year's zombie INFESTATION, the Inhumanoids' very own Undead Horror, D-Compose, would've fit nicely into the event.
