Axel-In-Charge: Navigating the "Civil War II" Landscape, Bringing DMC to Marvel
IDW Publishing has announced its crossover event Infestation is not only infecting comic stores, but has also found its way to Apple’s iTunes store. This unique zombie-fied crossover among IDW’s licensed titles Transformers, Star Trek, G.I. Joe and Ghostbusters has been coming out with a series of one-shots and miniseries over the past few weeks, and IDW’s new Infestation app offers all of the titles of the event in one place.
“We’re excited to bring out Infestation as a stand-alone comics app,” Jeff Webber, IDW’s director of ePublishing, said in the press release. “While all of the issues are also available in our IDW Comics app for our regular readers, creating a stand-alone Infestation Comics app allows us to introduce the whole event to fans of the individual brands. This way, casual readers of Transformers, Star Trek, G.I. Joe and Ghostbusters digital comics can see what this big comics cross-over event is all about!”
In addition to offering digital equivalent to the stories in print, IDW has also teased a special “TOP SECRET digital-only crossover” for the app. The press release murkily teases that, saying: “This will be one huge surprise for comic fans everywhere. All we can say right now is, bring a life vest!”
What could it be? Maybe the undersea-born Godzilla, which IDW recently started the license for? Maybe. Or it could be the launch of something new … maybe zombies vs. Jaws?
