Adventure Time Ice King #1 – BOOM! Studios finally gives the villain of Adventure Time his own miniseries. The Ice King has always been the villain in the Land of Ooo, kidnapping princesses, messing with Finn and Jake, and generally being a weirdo with his gender-flipped dream journal. But there more to him that that! When he wakes up one morning and finds his beloved Gunther the penguin gone, he embarks on a journey to find him. Both tragic and funny, the Ice King is more complex than the usual cartoon villain. This series will help enlighten fans more about what makes him tick.
Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare HC – Dark Horse Comics releases another series based on the video game Plants Vs Zombies. Dr. Zomboss is at it again, with another nefarious plan to take over the suburbs, with the help of technology from the future. Back from the future is adult Nate and Penny who are determined to stop Dr. Zomboss and the future that awaits. This volume collects issue #1-3 and is the prequel to the game Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. This hilarious action-packed, zombie-fightin’ adventure is perfect for readers of all ages.
