IDW Announces Second Printing for INFESTATION #1

the Opening Salvo in IDW’s Multi-Title Zombie Event Sells Out

Second Printing Available in Stores on February 16th

San Diego, CA (January 27, 2010) – IDW Publishing is excited to announce that INFESTATION #1 has sold out! Setting the stage for the company’s massive INFESTATION event, IDW is rushing a second printing of this debut issue to stores. INFESTATION #1 kicks off an epic adventure that invades Star Trek, Ghostbusters, TRANSFORMERS, and G.I. JOE comics with hordes of zombies and infected robots. Written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (The Thanos Imperative, Legion of Super-Heroes) and illustrated by David Messina (True Blood), INFESTATION #1 starts the multi-title event with a bang, and never lets up. To meet the continued demand and ensure readers can get in on the brain-eating action, the second printing of INFESTATION #1 will be in stores on February 16th, and readers should check availability with their local store.

“The response to INFESTATION has completely exceeded our expectations,” said Chris Ryall, IDW Chief Creative Officer and Editor in Chief. “This project has been in the works for years and it’s very regarding for all of us at IDW to see it getting such a positive response.”

This initial 32-page INFESTATION story begins in IDW’s own ZOMBIES VS. ROBOTS universe, where something goes terribly wrong and ultimately infests the worlds of TRANSFORMERS, STAR TREK, G.I. JOE, and GHOSTBUSTERS. From there, the story spins ferociously into each of the four properties throughout February and March, and culminates in April’s bombastic finale, INFESTATION #2.

In February, TRANSFORMERS: INFESTATION #1 and #2 and STAR TREK: INFESTATION #1 and #2 will ship bi-weekly. The TRANSFORMERS title will also be penned by Abnett and Lanning, with fan-favorite Nick Roche handling the art. STAR TREK: INFESTATION will be written by mainstay writers Scott and David Tipton and illustrated by Gary Erskine (Dan Dare) and Casey Maloney (Zipper).

March will see the release of the bi-weekly G.I. JOE: INFESTATION #1 and #2 by writer Mike Raicht and artist Giovanni Timpano, as well as GHOSTBUSTERS: INFESTATION #1 and #2 by Erik Burnham (The A-Team: War Stories) and Kyle Hotz (Marvel Zombies).

Artist John K. Snyder III (Phoenix Without Ashes) will provide covers for the two INFESTATION issues, as well as 1950s sci-fi film-inspired images for each of the four involved series.

INFESTATION #1, 2nd printing ($3.99, 40 pages, full color) will be available in stores on February 16, 2011. Diamond order code DEC10 8147.

TRANSFORMERS: INFESTATION #1 and #2 (each: $3.99, 32 pages, full color) will be in stores on February 2 and 16, 2011, respectively. Diamond order codes DEC10 0337 and DEC10 0340.
