      It looks like this is going to be a lot to handle even for the most rabid zombie fan, because there's a fairly high issue count to what's essentially a two-month story. Even though it all seems worth it, my advice is to get the two bookend story issues, and pick your favorite of the four universes and get its two issues and enjoy. And, if you like that enough, you should plan on getting the trades for the rest later. That's my plan. Read Full Review

      The issue opens with an Infestation update, presumably for fans of the TransFormers who arent reading the greater crossover. Good call, but it should work the other way too. People picking this book up just because of the crossover could really use a primer on the IDW version of the TransFormers universe. Read Full Review

      Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Feb 7, 2011

      Perhaps worst of all, although the book appears to be trying to stand alone, the final-page twist relies on a story detail from "Infestation" #1 only covered on the recap page, and since I read this prior to "Infestation" #1, it was unclear what questions I was supposed to be asking of the twist. That alone, seems like bad form for a comic labelled issue #1, and it's unfortunately indicative of the comic's quality as a whole. Read Full Review
