In the annals of “two great tastes that taste great together” you will find many worthy pairings: peanut butter and jelly, Olsen and Johnson, shave and a haircut. But none, I tell you, none are as a great as the recently announced pairing of Plants vs. Zombies and Dark Horse Comics, a pairing that is about to change history, make happiness explode for all, and go down as pretty much the best thing ever. How is it happening? In the form of Plants vs. Zombies: Lawnmageddon!
What is Plants vs. Zombies: Lawnmageddon (you might ask)? It’s a comic series of zombie-zapping brilliance where Crazy Dave himself helps fend off a fantastically fun-dead neighborhood invasion. Written by Paul “The Tank” Tobin and drawn by Ron “More Than Just a Man” Chan, it’s a botanical battle royale that even made Philip laugh out loud. And that’s saying something! It’s coming out first as a digital series, then as a bound collection. This is a comic that all will love, kids, parents, cranky teens, and even grandparents and your tipsy uncle. And even cooler (wait, is that possible?) is that there’s an exclusive print edition of the first issue, only available at the Dark Horse booth or the PopCap booth at the San Diego Comic-Con.
If you aren’t going already, I strongly suggest you head to San Diego now. Right now. And get ready to download the digital comics – if you want your life to be awesome, that is. And I know you do! It’s available right now in iTunes and on Dark Horse Digital.
