Plants vs Zombies graphic novel sells a shedload

Dark Horse Comics’ hardcover adaptation of the popular (which is probably putting it mildly) Plants vs Zombies property has proven rampantly popular with fans.

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 Plants vs. Zombies comic book—collecting all Plants vs. Zombies digital comics into one affordable hardcover!

There’s no denying how popular the simple tower defense title that is Plants vs Zombies has become and this book is a direct reflection on that. The game, by developer Popcap and EA, has been ported over to just about every platform under the sun and shows no sign of slowing up any thanks to a forthcoming first-person shooter set in the fun and colorful universe.

Dark Horse’s first foray into the world of tubers versus corpses, Plants vs Zombies: Lawnmageddon, debuted a short time ago and has racked up an impressive 17k copies sold through comic stores nationwide. So popular is the book that a second printing is already in the works which should land in stores on the 5th of February, 2014.

And if you can’t get enough of PvZ, there’s also an art book coming called, fittingly enough, The Art of Plants vs. Zombies.

Part zombie memoir, part celebration of zombie triumphs, and part antiplant screed, this is a treasure trove of never-before-seen concept art and material from Plants vs. Zombies, Plants vs. Zombies 2, Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, and Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare.

Look for it to be out this coming May. In the meantime though, you might still be able to find a copy of Lawnmageddon at your local retailer; just hustle like the Disco Zombie over to your LCS if you want one, cause they’re going fast.
