Zombies, Robots, GI Joe, and Star Trek?


Dan Abnett is officially my favorite person.

It appears that comic book publisher IDW has released their first "Universe Spanning Crisis Like Event," and it is so high concept that my mind is about to explode. Here's the company's description.

It begins here! The first-ever IDW event, which affects the Transformers, G.I. Joe, Ghostbusters, and Star Trek universes! This dimensions-spanning storyline begins with a specially priced 40-page story by Abnett & Lanning (The Thanos Imperative) and David Messina (True Blood). Something goes horribly awry in the Zombies vs Robots universe, threatening to tear many of IDW’s biggest realities asunder! Don’t miss the IDW event ten years in the making!

James T. Kirk, Optimus Prime, Snake Eyes, and Venkman vs. Zombies!

I'm overwhelmed.

All that remains is to begin stating up the "Infestation" using Wizards of the Coasts' Gamma World rules set. I think it should do quite nicely for the task. Either that, or Savage Worlds...or the Pacesetter system from Chill/Timemaster/Star Ace...or Risus

Which game system gets your vote?
