Recently IDW announced their follow up event to 2011′s Infestation. Oddly enough it’s being called Infestation 2!

Just like the first event this will feature characters from various properties that IDW publishes comics based on. While Transformers and G.I. Joe both return, Ghostbusters and Star Trek are out and replaced by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Weekly World News, Dungeons & Dragons and 30 Days Of Night.

Also out are the zombies. This time around it’s the tentacles ‘Elder Gods’ of Lovecraft lore!

Just like the original series this will begin in January with Infestation 2 #1 then go through the crossover titles and wrap up in April with Infestation 2 #2.

Part of the build-up to the debut issue is the recent release of the Dark Secrets Of Infestation 2 Ashcan Preview. These were sent to stores but if you’re like many other people and missed it or your stores wasn’t able to get copies of it then fear not! Here is the full ashcan preview available for you to check out as we all get ready for the Lovecraftian Infestation of the IDW multiverse!
