Issue one of the five-issue limited series (of which only the first issue was printed).

INFECTED Graphic Novel

The INFECTED graphic novel is on hold, indefinitely. Issue #1 is available, but there is no Issue #2 at this time. We were late enough turning in #2 that IDW Publishing decided to put the series on hold until the final four issues of the five-issue series are complete and submitted to them. Only then will they re-solicit the title and get the remaining issues into stores.

We do not have a projected timeline for the completion of the remaining four episodes.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and for not delivering on expectations.

The Diamond product code for the INFECTED comic is MAY120450. If you call your local comic shop to ask for it and they can’t find it, give them that Diamond product code.

Praise for INFECTED Issue #1:
“Some of the most chilling fiction of the decade.”
— Lonmonster,
“So intense that I can’t tear myself away from it.”
— Matt Wilkins,
“Minshew’s art is highly realistic and supremely well measured.”
— Richard Caldwell,

From IDW Publishing comes the INFECTED graphic novel, a five-issue comic adaptation chronicling Perry Dawsey’s high-octane tale of survival.

Perry Dawsey is 6-foot-5, 265 pounds of angry ex-linebacker. He knows all too well that if he doesn’t control his quick temper, people get hurt. Through constant focus, he has locked his violent past away in the deep dungeons of his mind.

The infection changes everything.

Strange microscopic parasites tap into Perry’s bloodstream like tiny little vampires. They start as bright orange blisters, but soon take the shape of triangular growths just beneath his skin. The “Triangles,” as Perry calls them, try to control their host by manipulating hormone levels and flooding his body with neurotransmitters — imbalances of which cause paranoia, schizophrenia and excessive aggression. As Perry begins a desperate battle to cut the Triangles out of his body before it’s too late, his self-control dissolves into raging, murderous madness.

About The Author


  1. Matt

    Hey Sigler,

    Who would win a fist fight, Scary Perry Dawson (assuming he never got injured and kept training) or Quentin Barnes?

    My money is on Dawson…INFECTED FOR THE WIN!!!!

    Let’s get a beer and talk about it, your treat!

      Matt: Quentin, hands-down. Quentin is huge. He’s 7-feet even, 380 pounds. Perry is 6-5, 255-ish. Perry is giving up 135 pounds to one of the best athletes the galaxy has ever seen. And don’t think Quentin is some QB punk, either — he grew up on the mean streets of Micovi and spent the first 14 years of his lift literally fighting for food. While Quentin has come a long way and grown as a person, never forget that he is a street fighter and will absolutely lay you out if you cross him.
