Zombies vs Robots #0

Has anyone followed this series?  IDW reprinted issue 1 here because it's the foundation for thie Infestation event.

Gotta say I really liked this issue.  It feels like Proof or Chew.  Except there is basically no good guys.  I'm thinking about digging up the rest of the series and checking it out.

Unfortunately, your not missing much.  I read the Zombies vs Robots #0 and got psyched up for this but the crossover is pretty bland.  I'll finish it out then send the whole lot up to eBay.
