INVADER ZIM COMES TO COMICS
At long last, the adventures of Invader Zim will continue. They won't be appearing on TV where they began. Instead, everyone's favorite little alien, his robot sidekick GIR, and his nemesis Dib will be showing up in comic books thanks to a partnership between Oni Press, creator Jhonen Vasquez, and Nickelodeon. The first issue of the ongoing comic will be released on July 1st, 2015.
"All of us at Oni Press are elated to be bringing the first new Invader Zim stories in years to a rabid fanbase," explained Oni Press Editor in Chief, James Lucas Jones. "Getting to tell those tales with folks from the show like Jhonen, Aaron Alexovich, Eric Trueheart, and Rikki Simons just makes it all the more sweet."
"I'm always confused when people say how much they miss Invader Zim because the show never stopped running in my head, and then I remember everyone else isn't in my head," said show creator Jhonen Vasquez. "I try to imagine the world for all those people who don't know what Zim's been up to since the show went off the air and it makes me shudder. How can people live that way? Hopefully this comic helps make the world a better place."
Invader Zim was a pretty awesome TV show and I'm definitely part of that rabid fanbase that Jones referenced. I'm glad that so many TV shows have found a second life in comics. Invader Zim joins others such as Buffy, Firefly, and The X-Files so it's in pretty good company.
Invader Zim #1 debuts on July 1st, 2015.
