DOOM DOOM DOOM: The Art of Invader Zim

Chris McDonnell, Jhonen Vasquez


Created by indie comics artist Jhonen Vasquez, Invader Zim tells the story of extraterrestrial outcast Zim, from the planet Irk. With the assistance of his malfunctioning robot GIR, Zim repeatedly tries (and fails) to execute his dastardly plan to conquer Earth, all while masquerading as an average elementary school student.

DOOM DOOM DOOM: The Art of Invader Zim is the definitive history of both the fan-favorite series and the upcoming Invader Zim television movie Enter the Florpus, airing in spring 2019. A fully authorized, all-access compendium of never-before-published production art, storyboards, behind-the-scenes photos, and ephemera, the book will feature exclusive, interviews with Vasquez and other key crewmembers that reveal the origins, art, and imagination behind one of Nickelodeon’s most beloved turn-of-the-millennium series.
