Plants vs. Zombies Boxed Set Coming from Dark Horse


There was a time when zombies were only popular around Halloween. Now, it looks like everywhere you go, zombies are there waiting for you. Still, Halloween does warrant zombie participation, prompting Dark Horse Comics and PopCap Games to release a Plants vs. Zombies boxed set collecting three critically acclaimed graphic novels. Paul Tobin and Ron Chan are bringing the zombie adventures of Patrice Blazing and Nate Timely as they join forces with Crazy Dave to fend off several fun-dead invasions.

This deluxe boxed set includes Plants vs. Zombies Volume 1: Lawnmageddon, Plants vs. Zombies Volume 2: Timepocalypse, Plants vs. Zombies Volume 3: Bully for You and an exclusive Plants vs. Zombies double-sided poster. In fall 2014, Dark Horse announced record sales of over 500,000 copies of Plants vs. Zombies books following multiple sold-out print runs. The Plants vs. Zombies Boxed Set hits comic shops October 14 and bookstores November 3.

Full press release below.
