In the first Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare video game from Electronic Arts, Dr. Zomboss and his legions of zombie minions attacked the lush plant utopia of Suburbia. In the recently announced Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, zombies have taken over, and now, for the first time in franchise history, the plants are on the attack. Delivering a story taking place between Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, the Garden Warfare comic has the exclusive reveal of how Dr. Zomboss conquered Suburbia. The evil-genius leader is up to a whole new set of tricks—and this time, he's succeeding, thanks to his mighty Imp and Z-Mech! But hope remains, as our zombie-battling champs Nate and Patrice discover horticultural help from the future and the past, and Crazy Dave misses out on an ice-cream cruise!
"We're excited to partner with Dark Horse Comics to tell the origin story of how Dr. Zomboss came to power in Suburbia," said Jeremy Vanhoozer, senior creative director at PopCap Games. "This pivotal moment in Plants vs. Zombies history is entertaining and hilarious, and will draw readers into this crazy world with these over-the-top characters like never before. I can't wait for fans to get their hands on this new series."
Written by Eisner-winning comic genius Paul Tobin (author of previous PVZ comics and about a billion more titles) with art by artistic wunderkind Jacob Chabot (The Mighty Skullboy Army and many others), this series that takes PVZ and you on a highway to the danger zone of awesome fun hits the stands on October 28, 2015!
