The flip side is that the popularity of the game spawns further iterations of the franchise in other media, in this ...more
Finally this wonderful, epic game gets a comic book! I loved, no adored the game, it was a really brilliant idea to have plants fight zombies!
So in this book we meet Nate and Patrice (who also happens to be Crazy Dave's (yes THE Crazy Dave) niece), in the beginning everything is fine, until they look out of their tree house window and see ZOMBIES!
They soon hurry to Dave, because, well even though he is clearly crazy, he is also brilliant and knows ...more
I love PvZ games. I'm giving the first one another round, and I'm playing the second daily. The are one of the best casual games you can find. So when I discovered very late that there was a comic book series I had to try it.
The book itself is directed to kids, but it feels like the writer didn't even try to catch the spirit of the game. None of the game's humor and fun. It doesn't mean that there's no humor in the book, it just that it's not good enough to appeal to adults as other ...more
I think this graphic novel supplied by NetGalley shall be the first thing I officially read and review on it. Here's hoping that all goes well ... Or I might just go back to paper books for a while again.
My seven-year-old son really enjoyed this book. He's a big fan of the game, and having two human kids thrust into the world really got his imagination running. The illustrations are great, and he laughs every time he looks at the peashooter drinking lemonade. Plus Crazy Dave is just as weird here as he is in the game. Only his niece ...more
Given that it’s based on a game, this is a great graphic novel with nice illustrations. The plot line was a little thin, but is comparable to most other zombie literature/film (i.e. there are suddenly zombies, so we have to run away and somehow defeat them!).
Is it great literature? No. But if you want some fluffy entertainment or are ...more
Full disclosure: I received an electronic ARC of this book via Netgalley.
I am a huge, huge fan of all things Plants vs. Zombies (though giantbomb's First Look feature on PvZ2 leads me to believe that may not be the case for too much longer). I've played through adventure mode and gotten to gold-trophy status at least a half-dozen times, and when I have a spare moment, I'm as likely to play Vasebreaker Endless as do anything else. ...more
Who doesn't love Plants vs. Zombies? It's on pretty much every platform and device, and it's fun for all ages. The zombies are slow and fun to destroy, the plants are creative and punny and colorful, and Crazy Dave is...well, crazy. So imagine my glee at finding a comic featuring Crazy Dave, his plants, and the zombies!
This comic is basically a contained adventure in which Nate Timely and Patrice must save their neighborhood from the zombie ...more
All’s not well in the city of Neighborville. An eccentric zombie horde has been unleashed, and the only one’s seemingly able to keep their fighting wits about them are young Nate Timely and his new kick-butt friend, Patrice Blazing. Fortunately, Patrice’s Uncle happens to be a genius “top-notch scientist”…although, he’s otherwise known to the neighborhood as the ...more
So you may be asking, how do you make a comic out of a game where you plant plants to defeat zombies. There's only Crazy Dave, who barely speaks English, and Penny, ...more
