Invader Zim #13 is silly, lighthearted, and ridiculous, which is exactly how the series and this character's story is supposed to be. It is entertaining and zany, and is a nice break from so many stories that are hellbent on being dark and serious. As someone who was dreading a series that was without its original creator behind it, I have been very happy and satisfied with what I've read. Jhonen does serve as "Control Brain", which is probably the best title I've ever read in a credits page of a comic book. It definitely shows, and I'm glad the series is continuing to be so great, with issue #13 as proof.
