ELDER GODS MEET STEAMPUNK CYBERTRONIANS IN DIXON’S “INFESTATION 2: TRANSFORMERS”

Optimus Prime and Megatron may be More than Meets the Eye, but how will they contend against gods whose very images inspire madness? A group of Robots in Disguise stranded in America’s Industrial Revolution strive against the incomprehensible evil of H.P. Lovecraft’s Elder Gods during the first month of IDW Publishing’s “Infestation 2” crossover event. Like the previous “Infestation” event, IDW’s first-ever crossover which pitted their various licensed properties against vampires from their “CVO” series, “Infestation 2” takes the form of a two-issue series which bookends several tie-ins.

“Infestation 2: Transformers”, a two-issue miniseries by Chuck Dixon and Guido Guidi, returns to the “Evolutions: Hearts of Steel” universe, which debuted in 2006 as the first (and, to date, only) entry in a planned series of alternate universe Transformers titles. In the original miniseries, also by Dixon and Guidi, events awaken long-slumbering Autobots and Decepticons in the late 19th century, with the evil Transformers attempting to exploit the rail lines currently expanding across the United States to their own dark purposes. This time around, though, the heroes face a menace unlike anything they’ve ever encountered.

For more details on the series, CBR News spoke with Dixon about “Infestation 2: Transformers,” which ships bi-weekly in February.
