Dib wears the wrong pants… WITH DEADLY CONSEQUENCES!!  Can the Earth survive an invasion from the waist down? (Spoiler: Maybe!)

Tell your LCS you want to get your grubby hands on my variant cover with the code DEC151491 (or DEC151490 for the main cover). Cut off date for pre-orders is Feb, 29th. Thanks for letting me do this @onipress!

PANTS! is a legendary “LOST EPISODE” of Invader ZIM.  A story that finds Dib battling an invasion of disgusting alien pants with mind-control powers, it was originally shot-down for reasons that are now lost in the mists of time.  But writer Eric Trueheart never gave up carrying the torch for the trousers.  Now Trueheart, series-creator Jhonen Vasquez, and artists Aaron Alexovich and Dave Crosland finally bring the pants out of the closet and onto the page.  A tale as funny as it is creepy, PANTS! will delight old-school ZIM fans and newcomers alike, and make you never look at your legs the same way again.


I made these ads In honour of International Stuttering Awareness Day today. Enjoy!

edit: Looks like Tumblr screwed up my scheduled post! It was supposed to go up on October 22 which is indeed International Stuttering Awareness Day. In any case, I’m glad to see a lot of sharing - please continue to spread the word!

New article in response to the lates reveal by Paul Dini on why marketing execs don’t want girls in their audiences for super hero shows.
Sounds horrible right? People are shocked! Yeah, well, it’s worse then you think. 

I explore the reasoning, that drive execs and marketers to pro-actively exclude women from their audiences and to pro-actively encourage a culture in which women do not feel welcome.

This is why we can’t have nice things… or can we?
