Plants vs. Zombies comic arrives on iOS, first issue free

The first two episodes of Plants vs. Zombies: Lawnmageddon, a comic book adaptation of PopCap Games' flora, fauna and zombie-infested tower defense series from Dark Horse Comics, are available now on iOS.

Helmed by Paul Tobin (Falling Skies, Marvel Adventures) and Ron Chan (The Guild, Husbands), the six-episode run follows the adventures of series stalwart nutter Crazy Dave, his niece Patrice and Nate Timely as they defend their neighborhood against the invading horde.

The comics will be available through a $0.99 iOS app, whose price has been waived July 17-21 to coincide with San Diego Comic-Con. The first issue will also be free during that time, and you can check out the cover below. The remaining issues will follow on July 24 and 31, Aug. 7 and 14. A hardcover version of Plants vs. Zombies: Lawnmageddon will be available in comic shops Nov. 6 and in bookstores Nov. 19.

"We're excited to see Plants vs. Zombies come to life as a comic book miniseries from one of the industry's coolest and most innovative publishers," said Jeremy Vanhoozer, Plants vs. Zombies franchise creative director at PopCap. "With Plants vs. Zombies Adventures recently launched on Facebook, Plants vs. Zombies 2 becoming available for iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch devices later this summer, and Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare shambling to market in spring 2014, it's a great time to give the millions of Plants vs. Zombies fans around the world a new way to enjoy this beloved franchise."

The next installment in the video game corner of the franchise, Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time, was recently delayed and will launch later this summer. Check out Polygon's interview with senior producer Allen Murray to learn more about the free-to-play game.
