As Bayonet stands revealed as a manifestation of Britt, the CVO operative who unleashed the Infestation on the Multiverse in the first place, she proceeds with her plan to conquer this universe. With the zombie-fied Kup as her lieutenant, she begins her plans to use Las Vegas as the launching point for a virus that will destroy the world. Autobots and Decepticons find themselves having to work together to save not just the human race, but all mechanical life as well.

The fact that this particular zombie infestation also works on robots is a stroke of luck for the story – the TransFormers could make quick work of any typical zombie plague. Putting them at risk as well makes the story more compelling, and the way one of them rises up and stands against the plague makes for great reading. The ending of this issue isn’t all that surprising, and I find myself suspecting we’re going to see similar conclusions to the rest of the Infestation crossovers as well, just to set things up for the finale. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but it could get a little repetitive.

Nick Roche’s art is pretty good. I especially like the look of Britt/Bayonet, and the way he “zombifies” some of the robots looks very nice.

This was okay. I hope the other chapters spice things up more, though.
