Release Date: February 15, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

My knowledge of Dungeons & Dragons comes exclusively from the 1980’s Saturday morning cartoon. I knew going in that Infestation: Dungeons & Dragons #1 wouldn’t be starring any of those characters, but I was curious anyway. What I found was about as different as you could get.

Writer Paul Crilley introduces the world of Dungeons & Dragons in a single paragraph printed inside the front cover, which pretty much set the tone for the rest of the book.

Although summer is still months away, it feels like it’s here because Infestation 2 #1 feels like a big summer crossover/comic event. And in fact, it is.

Duane Swierczynski does a FANTASTIC job setting up this event. This issue is both set up AND execution. While none of the licensed characters appear in this issue, you get the origin of the monsters that are set loose to go and attack the Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the GI Joe team, and more. This is one comic that’s packed with action from start to finish. Any history or continuity points are revealed in between action sequences. This is a great first chapter to the next two months of Infestation comics.

The GoD List: Comics For January 25, 2012

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Let’s Go Red Wings!” MK2Fac3 and “Clap! Clap! Clap, Clap, Clap!” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of January 25, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

The other day, I was staring down the barrel of a 30-issue stack of comics with wide eyes and a full heart. By the time I got halfway through, the fact of the matter is that my eyes were starting to squint and my heart shrunk 10 sizes. I’m kind of the reverse-Grinch after he stole Christmas. But only with comics. And really, it’s tough to get excited about comics, because honestly… they let you down a lot of times. So, it’s always a good thing when you find a couple of people that can give you guidance on what are safe bets for things that don’t suck. Hopefully we are those people for you, and when we’re not certain on what’s going to be good or not, we tell you honestly. If there’s one thing you can trust, we’re not here to promote companies, we’re here to promote comics that we enjoy and that we think that you will enjoy.

So, enjoy this, The GoD List, your place for weekly comics and collections!

Digital Comics Deal: IDW’s ‘Infestation’ Half Off Sale

Infestation Half-Off Sale

Comixology and IDW Publishing announced today that they will be offering a half off, 99-cent sale for IDW’s recent crossover event Infestation.

Now, you know how crossover events work, right? A comic book publishing company schedules a mini-series that “changes the face of the comic book company forever!” You know about those right? All the big companies do them. And you also may know that IDW has a lot of licensed properties and there’s not a lot of marriage between those comic book titles, as well. Right? Well, you’d be right on all those accounts. So, if it’s hard to wrap your brain around, I totally understand. It’s hard for me, too. But in 2011, it actually happened! That is correct, sir or madame, IDW tied together their universe with a zombie outbreak story that infected and affected the pages and characters of Star Trek, Transformers, G.I. Joe, and Ghostbusters. That’s both insane and awesome, isn’t it? I mean, I don’t know how it works, but I’d love to see a zombie Transformer.

Infestation 2

IDW Publishing will be bringing back their Infestation series, with the aptly named Infestation 2. The first Infestation dealt with a zombie invasion attacking some of IDW’s most popular licensed properties such as GI Joe, Transformers, Ghostbusters, and Star Trek. This time around, it’s not zombies, it’s Lovecraftian “Old Ones” gods attacking from across time and space.

IDW Publishing: InfestationOooh, I just love it when we zombies get all multi-dimensional n’ shit!

In January of 2011, IDW Publishing is set to launch a multi-title crossover event named Infestation, in which several of their flagship titles will be invaded by none other than… you guessed it, Zombies!

The event kicks off in January 2011, with Infestation #1 from writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, which finds us in IDW’s own Zombies vs. Robots universe just prior to some insane multi-dimensional event that seeds the rest of IDW’s titles with zombies and ‘infected’ robots. The event continues throughout two bi-weeky issues from each from their ‘Blockbuster Hollywood’ line, which includes Star Trek, G.I. Joe, Transformers, and Ghostbusters, and will conclude in April 2011 with Infestation #2.
