    i didn't see this anywhere else... thought i'd post it...

    Newsarama.com : SDCC 2010: IDW Publishing: Infestation LIVE!

    all i can say is WTF... i see no way of how a crossover between all these titles would work, so i'm a bit worried... but i'll try to keep an open mind once they announce more details...

    I'm guessing when they say Crossover it will be something 'multi-dimensional' that will involve all these properties rather then try and shoe-horn all of them to occurring within the same universe. This only really bothers me with Joe, since it's a much more grounded concept in IDW and has stay more on the "sci" side of SciFi for the most part, as opposed to TF, ST and Ghostbuster where other dimensions are fairly simple to digest.

    Haha..this is IDW trying to do a crossover event with the scale of Marvel and DC, but they forgot they have a range of unrelated properties.

    I mean..Transformers and GI Joe, I can understand..but also using Star Trek and Ghostbusters..plain crazy. :p  Of course, will wait to see how it will turn out, but the idea sounds silly enough...

    I don't think i got my though across clearly above: i'm thinking most likely only the villain or infestation will be the "crossover", kind of like how Dark horse did the Star Wars Vector crossover, which took place over 4 different time-frames, so you'll get the characters from each universe "fighting" this infestation and MAYBE someone tracking it across the dimensions.

    The only thing that would make this PERFECT for me is if they also cross over with Doctor Who!!!

    smacks of desperation to me. But I'm sure it'll boost sales for them.

    I'm surprised they haven't found a spot for My Little Poney in there.

    As a huge fan of two of these properties (Trek and TF) and a casual fan of the other two (Joe and GB) can I say this is a truly awful idea. Such crossovers NEVER end well, despite the best intentions of the creators.

    I'm betting you're absolutely right. He says it "involv[es]" each of the franchises. Nowhere is the word "crossover" uttered.

    hopefully it won't be as bad and as pointless as the avengers/transformers crossover from a few years back.
