This year there was that extra Wednesday in February. Given it fell in the midst of Infestation 2
's tossed in this "filler" book. I bought it because it's part of Infestation 2
, though I had zero idea who the characters on the cover (and interior story) were. So...kudos to IDW
for some effective branding, getting me to buy something based solely on the very "event banner" on a cover that I try to avoid in most other situations.
issue seems to make a team of Archibald (a character from the Infestation: Outbreak
mini that followed last year's Infestation
event), and Bat Boy from Weekly World News
(which rings a bell but I couldn't quite place it). Archibald literally gets caught up in the dealings of Infestation 2
as one of the Old Ones throws him across the country where he lands relatively unharmed at the feet of Bat Boy. The two wind up in a bar, sharing tell of all the events they've been through and what they've meant to their lives. Ultimately they find that they cannot remain aloof from the ongoing event outside the bar and get involved.
