That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

Love me some Lovecraft though. The real authentic stuff.

The Pretender Monsters might have been the obvious choice to use here what with the existent Lovecraft link in Monstructor, but I'm kinda glad to see the Seacons get some airtime instead. Underused and all that.

Anyone else have the fish-men remind them of that fish Battle Beast with the purple armor?

I've already decided to grab this title (as well as the 2 Infestation 2 issues, naturally) but I'll wait to see if I'll like it before grabbing the other titles, like GI Joe or TMNT. I'll probably get the trade if I decide to.

Interesting to see they changed the 'Bee design, didn't mind his original HoS look. Or maybe that was just for the cover and he'll be a locomotive again in the series.

Huh, didn't expect to see HoS again. Cool that they're not just visiting the main IDW universe again, since TF is very multiversal.

Looks pretty cool, even for someone who doesn't care about Lovecraft.

As a side note, I hope eventually Kup resurfaces somewhere.

I think this is so they can do a bit more with the premise.

In the main IDW-verse we knew going in there was going to be nothing of lasting consequence to the core cast or universe.

I figured they just didn't want to drag the main continuity into a crossover a month after the relaunch. Besides, steampunk and Lovecraft work well together.

So what will infestation 3 be about?

So this time around are the comics actually going to cross over at all?

Also, should I ever bother with any of the IDW comics relating to Infestation, like wherever these CVO guys are from?
Woooo!

You know, my initial reaction to this was "great, this one isn't a part of the man IDW continuity, so I don't have to read it." Mainly due to the first Infestation being so weak, except for the Star Trek issues, which didn't even need to be linked to Infestation to work.

But this....actually looks like it may be decent. Like someone above said, this time I'm waiting for reviews, and if I read it it'll likely end up being the eventual Trade Paperback.

Edit: @ Zodberg: I wouldn't bother with any of the others unless you were already reading them. From what I saw of CVO (admittedly, just what was in the crossover) it read like a lame ripoff of Hellboy and Torchwood. And no, not in an awesome way, despite how that description sounds.

Seacons? SEACONS?!

Dammit, I was hoping this would hold no interest to me and I could skip it without a second thought, even with the HoS designs. Although I am hoping it'll have Kup in some way.

Interestingly, Snap Trap seems to have a mini Piranacon head instead of his normal head.

-Edit- Oh and I love that they're using Submarauder's pretender shell design (who I just realized both robot and shell share the same colors as the Seacons).

The Seacons shown are Snaptrap, Tentakil, Nautilator and... Skalor maybe?
