Dark Horse Comics Releases New ‘Plant Vs. Zombies’ Miniseries By Paul Tobin And Ron Chan [SDCC 2013]
It looks like Periscope Studios is the place to be for PopCap Games’ popular Plants Vs. Zombies. Dark Horse Comics has released the first two chapters of a new six-issue PvZ title by Eisner Award Nominated Bandette writer Paul Tobin and Roy’s Boys artist Ron Chan, which are available now through Dark Horse Digital.
From Dark Horse’s official press release:
PopCap’s immensely popular Plants vs. Zombies game finally gets the plant-filled, zombie-zapping comics treatment it deserves! The confusing-yet-brilliant inventor known only as Crazy Dave helps his niece, Patrice, and young adventurer Nate Timely fend off a “fun-dead” neighborhood invasion in Plants vs. Zombies: Lawnmageddon!
The first issue (free through July 21) and subsequent $0.99 installments will be released roughly bi-weekly through August 14 before being collected in a hardcover on November 6. San Diego Comic-Con attendees, however, will be able to pick up a limited print exclusive edition of Plants vs. Zombies #1 at Dark Horse booth #2615 or the Plants vs. Zombies Booth #129 during the show.
Released (and in some cases re-released) on basically every major video game platform between 2009-2012, PvZ has sold millions of copies. Its direct sequel Plants vs. Zombies 2 and first-person-shooter Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare are set to arrive later in 2014.
