January 8th, 2012 by Marc Comments

IDW are releasing the complete hardcover collection of their epic 2010 crossover event Infestation on January 27th. The story is an epic event that spans the Transformers, Ghostbusters, GI Joe and even Star Trek universe. The book can be ordered here, we’ve our pre-orders in, but meanwhile, here’s IDW’s synopsis… get ready:

IDW’s first-ever mega event is collected in this hardcover collection as something goes horribly awry in the IDW universe: a dimensions-spanning zombie outbreak of epic proportions, which threatens to tear many of IDW’s biggest realities asunder! The infestation spreads into the Transformers universe as Galvatron crash lands on Earth, and it falls upon our “Bots-in-blue to run to the rescue of …well…Everyone to fight off not just Galvatron, but the zombie horde spreading through Las Vegas! It continues when a robotic arm of unknown origin has been discovered and both G.I. Joe and Cobra race to discover its secrets. Little do the two sides know that the arm has its own agenda -… more » assimilating the world’s military technology into the Infestation fold! It then crosses over into the Star Trek universe as a routine visit to a colony world takes a horrifying turn when Admiral Kirk, Mr. Spock, and Dr. McCoy find themselves surrounded by hordes of the undead! And, thanks to a plague of poltergeists that resist long-term storage in the containment grid, the Ghostbusters are dealing with a surplus of work …and their job is only going to get harder when Britt’s zombies try to take a nibble out of the Big Apple!Finally, Britt has returned, armed with new technology that will spread the “Infestation” across all known realities. The zombie apocalypse looms and the remaining members of CVO are running out of options…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
