As a follow up to last year’s zombie invasion, Comic Publisher IDW has recently launched Infestation 2, in which their line of licensed comics face off against the otherworldly creations of legendary horror author H.P. Lovecraft.
In the comic, HP Lovecraft is revealed to be only writing his horror stories based on ideas that he somehow absorbed from another dimension, as a direct result of being sensitive to the outside world. It tells the story, through flashbacks, of how Lovecraft was assassinated in order to prevent the elder gods from using his stories as a bridge to our reality. It worked for a while, until Lovecraft’s work became so popular, that the fans of the stories themselves were able to serve as bridges where HP failed.
Now, the various horrors, monstrosities, and gods have crossed over to our plane of existence, as well as other realities, which include the realities that are home to various IDW comic titles, such as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, GI Joe, Danger Girl, and others.
