Abraxis Wren is the most notorious inquisitive in sharn... and when a routine— well, routine by his standards—case puts him on the trail of creatures beyond the ken of mortal, it’s only a matter of time before he finds himself caught up in the middle of InFesTATIon 2!

but what else has been nesting in the deep dark? A series of strange occurrences leads the Turtles into long forgotten tunnels. What they find there should have been left alone, for as light fades and walls narrowâ€”bone-chilling terror awaits!

cobra has always had a penchant for dark experiments. This time theyâ€™ve gone too far and opened a portal to a realm of violence and madness. As squadron after squadron of coBRA VIpeRs falls under the thrall of the elder gods there seems no way to stop the hideous transformations that are taking place. The only hope lies in a group of already-insane coBRA agents... and a joe named snAke eYes!

y’know what I hate to see in My America?
I mean, beyond foreign-born presidents, electric cars, immigration policies, cornsyrup hate, late-night comedians, hybrid cars, irony, recyclable grocery-store bags, public radio, earmarks, pot dispensaries, low-emission cars, turkey burgers, e-book readers, and electronic cigarettes? I really hate conspiracy theories. Feels like every one of my “contemporaries,” which today means any hack with a fruity laptop (I mean Apple, you bleedinghearts, thinks the government is up to shenanigans no one knows about. Well, they are up to shenanigans, but not the kind the UFO hippies would have you believe. Instead, they’re busy opening our borders to aliens, freaks, talking animals, sentient clouds, and Fat Elvis’ ghost. I ask you, is that what the Founding Fathers had in mind? Think about this before you try to tell me I’m wrong: lately, I’ve been hearing weather reports that call for clouds and a chance of giant tentacled monsters! Travel bureaus advise against going to Iraq and Alaska! What kind of world is it where we have to worry about terrorists and rumored bloodsucking monsters with the same urgency? Where’s the government to go in and take care of these problems that are happening right in—or above—our own front yards? They don’t listen. They don’t care. If they did, do you think they’d allow Bat Boy to be lionized the way he has been? Do you think he’d be free to roam around and break bread or drink beers next to anyone he pleases? Of course not. So while I hate to see all of those things I listed above, I loathe even more that I now live in a world where Lovecraftian monsters can rain down out of the sky and wreak havoc; I hate knowing Alaska is tainted in ways I don’t even want to think about; I can’t stand that Bat Boy and some other illegal space alien can pal around the city with no restrictions. And I hate all of you who’re so worried about secret things the government might be doing that you’re not paying any attention to the egregious things they are doing. In short, you deserve to be infested by demons. This is still supposed to be yours and My America, and it’s time we reclaimed it for ourselves.
