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.
Well, if you’re like a lot of people, myself included, this comic book event may have slipped past your radar even though it sounds outrageously amazing. Well fine readers of Geeks of Doom, we’re in luck! The fine folks at Comixology are currently offering us a three-day, 99-cent sale on each issue from the crossover. That’s right, the main two issue mini-series Infestation is available for only 99 cents a piece, and so are each of the tie-ins which include G.I. Joe: Infestation, Ghost Busters: Infestation, Star Trek: Infestation, Transformers: Infestation, and the four-issue mini Infestation: Outbreak. So, for a mere $14 you can read the entire 2011 event! That’s not a bad deal, you guys. And from what I understand, this sale is taking place just in time to get you caught up on the series before the next Infestation chapter starts this year.
So, if you like zombies, crazy stories, licensed comics, or your just really curious how all of this could work as one series, then you should definitely head over to Comixology right now to ensure your ability to get these comics at the best possible price. Remember, this is only a 3-day sale and it started at 12:01am EST Tuesday, so if you don’t take advantage of this sale before 11pm on 1/26, you’re going to miss out. And really, do you want to miss out on this comic sale? Because I sure don’t.
