  • Everyone: oh no
  • Everyone: not again
  • Everyone: please-

Some are a sampling of gifts from Christmas, the rest are me just binge-buying a shitton of comics at Vancouver’s Golden Age Collectibles. I have yet to find a comic shop here that has their range and variety.

Aww yiss I’m gonna have me a good time reading.

Happy New Comic Book Day! Today is the kick-off of our SQUARE ONE program—first issues of our flagship titles for only $1!

This first round includes:

Find your local comic shop with or and add your favorite comics to your pull list so you never miss out on an issue!

Which of our dollar comics are you excited to read this week?


As a means of catching ZIM fans up to speed in terms of the series’ highly complicated (everyone throws fits and stuff explodes) plot, and to inform those who have never watched the show (you can tell who they are because they still have their hearing), I hired Recap Kid. He (or she? I never specified and aaronalexovich‘s art keeps it mysterious) is an expert on all things ZIM so you’re in good hands there.

This is the ONLY INVADER ZIM comic review that matters.


Invader Zim Is Back From The Dead

The animated series Invader ZIM first debuted on Nicekodeon back in 2001. While the show never found a Spongebob Squarepants-level audience, its unique style and sense of humor attracted a cult following that remains even ten years after the final episodes aired. Now those fans can take heart that ZIM and friends are returning. Not in another animated series, but in a new ongoing comic book from Oni Press.

ZIM creator Jhonen Vasquez is involved with that new comic, steering its development and even writing the first two issues. We recently had the chance to speak to Vasquez via email. He discussed the joys and challenges of returning to this oddball universe after so long, how closely he and other Invader ZIM veterans are involved and in what page of the first issue GIR will die. Wait, what?

Along with that interview, we also have an exclusive look at four pages from the first issue, which will be released on Wednesday, July 8.

For my storytelling class, we had to copy another comic book artist’s style and in doing so, we had to copy a page of their work.

I chose Jhonen Vasquez’s Invader Zim. 

Above is the original and below is my replication. Please excuse the AWFUL handwriting.

All characters, comics, stories, etc. go to Jhonen Vasquez.
