In the wake of last year’s hit Netflix movie Enter the Florpus, the Invader Zim renaissance is fully underway, with Portland, Oregon's Oni Press launching a new quarterly comic book series based on the cult character, along with a new series of collected editions featuring the best comic adventures of the past!

Invader Zim Quarterly will begin in April 2020 with "GIR's Big Day", featuring a story by Eric Trueheart and Aaron Alexovich, launching an extra-length series retailing for $5.99 that will replace Oni’s current Invader Zim monthly, which, launched in 2015, will end with the 50th issue, written by the character’s creator, Jhonen Vasquez, also due out in April.

July will see the debut of a series of Best of Invader Zim collected editions, bringing together stories from Oni’s first Zim series. Invader Zim: Best of World Domination — a $9.99 anthology of four stories featuring Zim’s attempts to take over the planet, each one cruelly foiled by pesky humans who should know better. (The release of this title is timed to Abrams' publication of The Art of Invader Zim hardcover.) Invader ZIM Best of GIR is slated for November 2020.

Invader Zim has been a cult character since the 2001 debut of the eponymous series on Nickelodeon. The show ran one year before being revived on Nicktoons in 2006 for a delayed second season. Oni’s first Zim series launched in 2015.
