To quote Zim, “Prepare your bladder for imminent release!” Or perhaps GIR’s “Doom Song” is more appropriate here.
Whichever the case, Oni Press released the above teaser image on Twitter and Tumblr, as a sure sign the publisher will announce a comic book revival of Invader Zim, the critically acclaimed animated series by Jhonen Vasquez. (If the phrase “DOOM IS COMING” isn’t clear enough indication, Vasquez retweeted and reblogged the image.)
Debuting in March 2001 on Nickelodeon, the series centers on Zim, a short, naive and rather inept alien from the planet Irk who attempts to infiltrate humanity in his effort to conquer Earth and enslave its population, with the assistance (theoretically, at least) of his malfunctioning robot servant GIR. Standing in his way is Dib, a young paranormal investigator who’s determined to expose Zim as an alien.
Invader Zim was abruptly canceled in December 2002, with unaired episodes eventually shown in 2006 on Nicktoons, with seasons 1 and 2 re-released in 2010.
As Oni’s posts indicate, more details are expected on Friday.
