When the news hit oh so long ago that IDW was entering the realm of the “comic crossover event” it was met with skepticism and dread, admittedly from me.
Despite that, the thought of all these properties from my youth playing around together was too good to pass up, and I was there cash in hand when Infestation Issue #1 hit the stands. Likewise with Issue 2 and all the rest.
What I hadn’t foreseen was that somehow, the powers that be at IDW were able to weave these very different universes together to tell one solid story. Lo and behold, I enjoyed the hell out of it.
At the end of last week, IDW announced Infestation 2.
There was no skepticism to be found anywhere in the immediate vicinity.
