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?
