    This issue brings the funny just as awesomely as the first and the nostalgia is far from dead. Invader Zim's strong start continues unhindered. Read Full Review

    Anyway, Oni's Invader Zim is still going strong. New character dynamics added and some familiar faces are reintroduced with this installment (the Tallest). If there are any Zim fans out there who haven't picked up this comic, I dunno why they're waiting. Read Full Review

    Invader Zim #2 continues the fun that Invader Zim #1 started.  I hope that Invader Zim #3 continues what Invader ZIm #2 did.  Don't get me started about Invader Zim #4...Wait a second.  I'm sorry, let me close the Comic Reviews for Dummies book.  Okay, that's better.  This series is a dream come true for Invader Zim fans and those who want to know what all the hype was (is?) about.  If you are in either of those groups or just want to read a hilarious comic with great characters, give this book a try.  I bet you Logan would love it if I can just stop him from doing all that playing and exercising.

    This series channels all of the show's bizarre, spastic humor as it renews the endless feud between Dib and Zim. Even better than that rivalry is the banter between Dib and his ship and the constant comedic relief/philosophical musings of GIR. Read Full Review

    With the way the story is progressing, it seems to be taking on a slightly more serious tone than that of the series, and as long as all the characters are reset by the next issue (pretty sure there's going to be a riot if they don't) then this could be a very strong series that should draw in a whole new age group of fans.

    The pacing is a little fast, and both the plot and narrative voice may take some time for newcomers to acclimate to, but this is a very good second issue. Invader ZIM was sorely missed, and I'm hoping for great things from the franchise now that it's back in action and making its move right for the nostalgia center of my brain. Bring me more! Er, please. Read Full Review

    Overall, this series is doing very well, just as the television show did. There are new interactions between characters that is looking good so far, and some familiar faces that we saw in the show as well. This is definitely a must-read for any Invader Zim fan out there. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Aug 26, 2015

    Invader Zim #2 remains an incredibly honest revival of a beloved property and an absolute gift to fans. Even so, this isn't the essential read its predecessor was and the jokes are more hit and miss this month. The art remains a particularly lovely and faithful representation of the cult classic's aesthetic and, while you can feel how much this script wants to be animated, the storytelling is very strong. Though it's merely average compared to the series' incredible opening salvo, Invader Zim #2 encourages my belief that this may well be one of the best comic revivals I've ever seen. Read Full Review

    Still, even with an ending that doesn't quite hit its mark, there's enough other good material in "Invader Zim" #2 that it's still above average. I'm glad that Oni Press has such a strong creative and I think this is still a gift from heaven for diehard fans. I'll be back for more. Read Full Review
