Skips, the enigmatic yeti groundskeeper, is the focus of this new series, as we finally get to see the world from his point of view. As a reward for all the good work they’ve done, Pops takes the team on a mini-vacation. But for Skips, this vacation is going to be anything but restful. Fans of Regular Show and big, muscle-bound yeti will want to check this issue out.
Plants Vs Zombies Lawnmageddon HC – Dark Horse collects the digital comics into one nifty hardcover! Zombies are invading Nate Timely’s quiet town, and he’s determined to stop them. With the help of Patrice, her confusing-yet-brilliant inventor uncle Crazy Dave, and the plants Dave has cultivated and planted around town, Nate will help fend off the zombie invasion—after a lemonade and cookie break! This very funny book brings the award-winning video game to comics readers in this original adventure. If you liked the video game, or just very silly stories, pick this book up.
