Zombies, garden gnomes, time machines, and Citron (the world's first bionic orange).

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is a great way to entice kinds who are hooked on video games into reading. Colorful artwork, a fun story, and maybe a bridge to getting them to put down the controller for a few hours and read.

I love the idea, but a word to the wise, I found the Kindle version to be a bit of a strain on the eyes, with little flexibility to adjust the size of the image and subsequently the text.

Story by Paul Tobin who has written comics for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, and many others. Look for his debut novel, Prepare To Die!, coming soon.

Jacob Chabot is a cartoonist whose credits include Spongebob comics, Simpson comics, and many others.

Michael J. Rainater is a freelance illustrator whose work has been featured in advertising, web design, and independent video games. On top of this he self-publishes a number of comic books.

Steve Dutro is a noted comic book letterer from Northern California. He has spent decades in the comic book industry working for Dark Horse, Viz, Marvel, and DC.

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare will be published on February 2, 2016 by Dark Horse books and will be available in both hardback and kindle formats.

I don't think my expectations going into this series could have been any lower, but my first exposure to the Tobin's zany characters in this volume had me laughing out loud practically through the whole book. The absurdist humor is consistently funny and Chabot's visual humor adds tremendously. Dutro's lettering is also creative and funny in and of itself and fits right in with the art and writing. It's rare in kids' comics that capitalizing on media properties results in something as intellegent and entertaining as this.
