SDCC 2013: Dark Horse Partners With PopCap for Plants Vs. Zombies!
Dark Horse Comics is bringing the first official Plants vs. Zombies comics to the world, released in a partnership with PopCap Games. The first and second chapters are ready for you to read NOW! Paul Tobin and Ron Chan join forces with a bevy of battling plants to deliver a hilarious, all-ages, action-filled zombie romp to your neighborhood!
The six-issue miniseries will be available first digitally and will be collected in a beautiful hardcover available later this year. In conjunction with this epic release, Dark Horse has crafted a standalone iOS app for Plants vs. Zombies comics, which will be available for 99 cents and includes the first issue! As a special SDCC launch, the app and issue #1 will be free for the duration of Comic-Con International (July 17–July 21)!
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! Winner of over thirty Game of the Year awards, Plants vs. Zombies is now determined to shuffle onto bookshelves to tickle the funny bones and thrill the brains of readers of all ages.
Be sure to stop by the Dark Horse booth #2615 or the Plants vs. Zombies Booth (#129) at SDCC to pick up your limited print exclusive edition of Plants vs. Zombies #1!
