Jhonen Vasquez Returns to "Invader Zim" For New Issue Of Comic Book Series

Jhonen Vasquez Returns to Invader Zim In This Week's Issue [PREVIEW]

Oni Press has released a preview of Invader Zim #20, out this week from the publisher!


The issue is a break from the book's ongoing narrative and serves as a stand-alone one-shot, written by Invader Zim creator Jhonen Vasquez.

The cult classic animated series launched a new, monthly comic at Oni two years ago, and will soon return to TV in the form of a movie on Nickelodeon.

The original Invader Zim series launched in 2001 to critical acclaim, and quickly became a cult hit. The series chronicled an alien named Zim who arrived on Earth from his home planet of Irk with imperialistic intentions of conquering the planet (in order to gain favor with his Irken home race). Wildly ineffective but hilariously earnest, Zim and his robot companion GIR attempted to blend in and study the human race while simultaneously trying to enslave it. Despite Zim and GIR's subpar disguises, the only humans who realize they are extraterrestrials are school-aged paranormal investigator Dib. Invader Zim ran for 27 episodes over two seasons, and received a Primetime Emmy Award and an Annie Award for individual achievement in animation (which went to storyboard artists Kyle Menke and Steve Ressel, respectively).
