    Ok back to Zim, I give this a 5/5 because it does what a comic should. It has a start, middle and end and through it makes you laugh and remember what this show was all about. Craziness!! Read Full Review

    So yeah, for all of you curious, Oni Press's Invader Zim is still good. Still really good, in fact. If you're a Zim fan and you aren't reading it yet, I just don't get you. I just don't GET you. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Chris Bennett Jan 6, 2016

    The issue ticks all the boxes you'd want from a Zim book. Seriously, it could be an episode of the show so easily " with one notable exception. It's clear from the first page that Green has brought his own original style to the book which seems to be one part Ren and Stimpy, two parts European newspaper strips. Everything is much more over-animated than previous issues, with big, bold "anime" style eyes and a slightly flat colour, giving the book a noticeably different tone to previous issues.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 6, 2016

    If nothing else, this issue proves that an Invader Zim comic can work under more than just one group of creators. This issue isn't necessarily superior to those that preceded it, but it at least offers a different take and a different visual interpretation on the Zim-verse. A little variety is never a bad thing.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jan 13, 2016

    It's an interesting treat to see another cartoonist put their own spin on Zim, even if there are some occasional growing pains. Like last month's issue and most of the episodes that spawned Zim, this is a completely inessential read. A weak ending and some repetitive jokes hold this one back, but this still feels like Zim and it's a part of Zim that we haven't gotten much of. If you enjoy the absurdist world that Zim inhabits this is a great look at it, but otherwise it's merely an interesting experiment. Read Full Review

    The last four pages were a weak ending, but the escalation of the main gag had me giggling uncontrollably.

    this book is always fun, and this issue is no exception. The main exception in this issue is what drives it (in my mind, anyway) the farthest from being an “all-ages” book in the first six issues so far. And that is with its gross-out humor that is so prevalent in the TV series- because, while this was a cartoon, and it was marketed towards children, it was more of the teenagers like myself who were the true target demographic of that series, and that seems to be the benchmark for this book as well. It was a bit more “gross” than I thought it would be, but it didn’t push me away from the book, it just reminded me more of what I was used to seeing from the Invader Zim series, and other shows from that era before-the-internet, when TV shows could do basically anything they wanted (like Rocko’s Modern Life, Ren & Stimpy, etc etc). I really enjoyed the humor of this book- which I almost always do, and I like that this story features my favorite secondary Zim character more heavily- Gir. I loved Gir’s character in the show, and I loved the look of the character, taking it upon myself to try my level best to draw Gir in his green dog costume drinking his chocolate and bubblegum milkshake like a million different times, because I could do it halfway decently. This book doesn’t deliver anything groundbreaking, but it does well in being an Invader Zim comic book- so that’s something, right?
