Dark Horse brings the world of Plants vs Zombies to monthly unlife

A monthly Plants vs Zombies comic series is on the way from Dark Horse Comics.

Eisner Award–winning writer Paul Tobin and artist Ron Chan join forces to uncover who’s really behind the mysterious Anti-Bully Squad. Nate, Patrice, and Crazy Dave investigate a strange college campus to keep the streets safe from zombies. And Dr. Zomboss’s crime-filled college years are revealed! This hilarious educational escapade also features two bonus stories illustrated by Dustin Nguyen (Batman: Li’l Gotham, Descender). Future issues will feature bonus strips by Peter Bagge, Jennifer Meyer, Karim Friha, Nneka Myers, and others!

The little property that just keeps on ticking, PvZ is just about everywhere these days and still seems to be picking up steam, which is really incredible when you think about it. Not only did the game start life on mobile handsets, but it also was essentially a tower defense title, which isn’t a genre that’s really known for producing blockbuster entertainment properties. That’s kind of what Plants vs Zombies has become though.

Entering the world of games, books, graphic novels, toys, and now comics books, PvZ is a juggernaut. This new series follows Dark Horse’s The Art of Plants vs. Zombies, which launched in 2014, and was dressed as not just an art book, but also as a kind of zombie manifesto. Several PvZ mini-series’ have already been hits for the publisher as well, with the property in total selling in the neighborhood of 500k copies as of last Fall. So that’s pretty big time right there.

Have yet to delve into the printed world of PvZ? Luckily for you, Plants vs. Zombies: Timepocalypse, Plants vs. Zombies: Lawnmageddon, and The Art of Plants vs. Zombies are all available in stores and through Dark Horse Digital right now. Want the new stuff? Paul Tobin and Ron Chan’s all-new Plants vs Zombies: Bully for You #1 hits the racks in June.
