Early in 2008, An unusual comic book was drawn, scripted, and released in the stores in about 2 years by a young girl that got the plot idea of a Zombie pet story and was inspired by horror video games and zombie movies. When Patches the Zombie First Comic book was published, it wasn't as popular in the beginning, with only 5 chapters in the book, and only a few copies in English. However, after drawing more copies, and creating sequels, Patches became quite a popular Zombie that was known by all comic book lovers. Furthermore, as years went by of success in the Comic Book, People from across the world began to notice Patches the Zombie and created fan art, toys of the characters, and also some fanfictions. Eventually, in the year of 2014, the release of the animated series was aired on Nickelodeon after many months of hard work on animating from a team that included the author. Just after the first episode aired, more fan mail, fan art, and fan fiction were created from many inspired people. Patches and Kat were the most popular in the fan art.
It has been predicted that the end of Patches the Zombie series will be ended somewhere in the year 2018 with about 5 seasons, however, the Comic book series will continue the adventure of Patches and Kat to more chapters, copies and fun for others to read.
Before the Animated Series of Patches the Zombies was the Comic Book series written and drawn by none other than the directer of the animated series herself, Stacy, that published the book late in November, 2008. The Comic book and the Animated series are basically similar except the fact that Comic Book series has more episodes and continues then the Animated. However, both have the same concept and plot with Patches and Kat the main characters that have the same personality differences and mood behaviors.
Patches favorite snack is not Brains, in fact, Kat had the idea of feeding Patches Gummy Worms for the same texture, and it worked. Patches has an odd addiction to Gummy Worms now.
Patches has an attraction to anything fluffy, soft, or small.
