    I love reading ST in novel and comic form. I also read a fair bit of other comics (and other non-ST novels). However, I have to say, IDW's Zombie cross-over that involves ST is quite foolish. I get that Zombies sell, but puhleaze......

    I don't see where zombies are really any more outrageous than some of the other stuff that was on TOS, like a giant space amoeba and Apollo.

    ... but crossing that stuff over across all those unconnected franchises makes sense? :cardie:

    well if the X Men can visit the Enterprise, why not zombies.

    I love the Spock sketch. :) I mean, if there were ever a canonical situation where he would come back as a zombie...

    Well, from what I've read (not the actual comics, just the info released on sites like this) the actual series are staying unconnected. So I have no problem with it whatsoever.

    As almost happened in Harve Bennett's "Return to Genesis" script treatment. Spock was a vampiric-looking image appearing in people's mirrors.

    These sketches are from the fun "Infestation: Sketchbook", a promotional aside, not the actual plot of "Infestation".

    Exactly. The Zombies (or in GI Joe's case, the robots) all spill over from the IDW multiverse (Where their Zombies vs Robots and Covert Vampire Operations books reside) and into the universes of the various franchises. There is no interaction between the various franchises and the stories are all self-contained.

    As for Zombies in Trek-- The Borg? The Vulcan expedition to The Expanse? Nothing new or out of place here.

    The Onlies in "Miri" when they hit puberty and become Grups.

    Spock with no brain.

    The possession of humans by "The Lights of Zetar"...
