I remember when Plants vs. Zombies, the game, first came out years ago. Mostly because I was incredibly addicted and couldn't stop playing. Since then, the franchise has grown to a massive level, branching out to more apps, video games, toys, and comics. There are multiple collections of Plants Vs. Zombies books out already, including: Plants vs. Zombies: Timepocalypse, Plants vs. Zombies: Lawnmageddon, and The Art of Plants vs. Zombies. Now it's time for more! Dark Horse Comics and PopCap Games have announced, Bully for You, a new ongoing Plants vs. Zombies miniseries.
The series will be written by Eisner Award–winning writer Paul Tobin, with art by Ron Chan. The story will focus on characters, Nate, Patrice, and Crazy Dave as they investigate a strange college campus. Dr. Zomboss's crime-filled college years will also be revealed. In addition to the hilarious educational escapade, there will be 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 more!
It sounds like it's going to be a really fun read. I think it's always a wise choice when creators take an educational spin on things. It allows young readers to learn while having a good time. As a fan of the game, and the overall franchise in general, I look forward to seeing what this book brings to the table. You can preorder your copy of Plants vs. Zombies: Bully for You #1 at your local retailer today. It's set to release in June.
