The flip side is that the popularity of the game spawns further iterations of the franchise in other media, in this c ...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 boo ...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
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.
I've always been a big fan of the Plants Vs Zombies games and other media so this was a delight. The read is very quick and enjoyable. I feel like I appreciated it more than some might since I know lots about the series and such but regardless, it's great! Dave is perfect from game to comic and the addition of his niece is fantastic. Overall, this is a great story and adds so much to the already amazing series. ...more
The zombies were not to bad... But they probably won't be getting any beauty treatments for their faces. They were not to creepy. I would not think that the age of 3-5 can not handle it. But if you are a parent you can decide, some children are different in handle things differently.
Why did I pick this ...more
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 ca ...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 look ...more
I do feel like there was a bit of a weird story lapse in trying to turn the game into a story though, and it didn’t feel cohesive for me.
It was super fun to see all of panels and action, but unsure of its merit as a graphic novel. Maybe it should have stuck to games?
Over all, if you have some time to use up I would suggest you go read this comic. ...more
Based on one of my all-time favourite video games, this comic was a ton of fun! Full of colour and awesome graphics, the story line, characters and artwork, I enjoyed my reading experience immensely. Gave me the urge to play through this game yet again (maybe my third? Fourth time?). I plan to get the next volume of this series from my library ASAP.
Definitely recommend for readers of all ages. ...more
