So a news story that seemed to have fallen through the cracks is the reveal that Nickelodeon is working on a full-length feature film version of cult favorite animated series INVADER ZIM! *Squee!* And while it is only a TV movie, that's still intriguing news, seeing as how the show only lasted two seasons 15 years ago.

Now, I never really got into the show at the time. I thought I was too cool - watching adult shows like SOUTH PARK, SIMPSONS, and BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD - to watch kiddie Nickelodeon bullshit. I wasn't, of course. One thing I do remember, however (besides all my exes in high school and middle school's obsession with it) was how it was one of the few kid's shows to have actual Goth characters in it. Not only that, but they weren't just fun side characters, but actual main characters. So I always thought that was cool.

I've since seen episodes as I've gotten older, and while the basic premise sometimes wears thin, I have to admit I love the art style, and a lot of the humor is much darker than you'd think for a show like this (even if it's counteracted by kid-humor, like the overly-cute robot dog-thing GIR). Either way, I'm intrigued to see how the movie holds up.

So any fans of ZIM? And if so, you excited for more adventures? Either way, sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: I actually own Jhonen Vasquez's JOHNNY THE HOMICIDAL MANIAC graphic novel.

While author loses millions of points from any self-respect information Invader Zim fan for the Gir diss, this is green for the news itself.

JTHM

I watched ZIM sometimes, but I read JTHM about 8 times in high school. I have a bunch of autographed stuff from Johnen Vasquez, and he is one of the weirdest people I have met. If this does well, then I hope he is up for a JTHM movie.

Since I loved the show as a kid, a while ago I decided to re-watch to see if I would still enjoy it as an adult (I don't remember that much of it). It's possible that I'll like it more since I read that the humour isn't really kid-friendly. Reading this has made that decision a priority.

Keep original animation style

As long as it looks and sounds like the original, the fans will love it. The problem with cartoons these days is they all have limp dick looking characters.
