I’m interrupting my vacation full exotic cocktails and space exploration to let you know that Inveder ZIM 45 is out today. The things I do for you.
Soooo I can finally talk about my next graphic novel. Ted Naifeh and I have been working on this thing for years now. Actual years. And after a handful of delays, scheduling conflicts, and the occasional apocalypse, our book will finally be be hitting shelves this autumn.
Meet KRISS. That's him brooding in the snow. I hope you like him because I'm going to be pestering you about him a LOT over the next several months.
FINALLY the raddest comic you will EVER READ EVER hits comic shops today (bookstores and Amazon tomorrow)! Justin Wagner wrote and drew it, I colored it, and Melanie Ujimori lettered it! Go get it! DON'T BE LAME!
WHERE WE LIVE: LAS VEGAS SHOOTING BENEFIT ANTHOLOGY is an upcoming graphic novel and 100% of the proceeds will go to the survivors of the attack. It will be available on May 30th.
I am thankful to my friends, Jim and Wendy Williams, for inviting me to be a part of this and I am eternally grateful to them for taking it upon themselves for putting it all together.
Frankly, writing and drawing this story is one of the hardest things I've ever done. And I couldn't be more proud of it.
Who wants some good news for a change?? I got some radical news right here!
The PIZZASAURUS cometh!
Justin "The Wag" Wagner (ok, no one really calls him that) is on art and story while I'm on colors!
BEHOLD the SCIENCE MAJESTY of INVADER ZIM 22! If you buy this you will get smarter because SCIENCE!
And it looks like Barnes & Noble put it on its list of best graphic novels of August. I don't know why. I mean, that comic is full of beans.
Two things out today! (whew!)
INVADER ZIM 20 (drawn by me and colored by Fred C Stresing): This issue was written by His Supreme Overlordness, Jhonen Vasquez himself! He commands you. HE COMMANDS US ALL.
COURTNEY CRUMRIN Vol 1 (written/drawn by Ted Naifeh and colored by me): This $10 paperback re-release is the PERFECT way to get into the CRUMRIN series if you haven't already. (On a personal note, this book is really special to me. On top of it being a lovely story, this book was, in a way, the book that spring boarded my comics career. I'll always be grateful to Ted and Oni Press for taking a chance on me.)
Here it is! INVADER ZIM #12 comes out today!
This is the first issue of my run as illustrator and I couldn't be happier. Aaron Alexovich and Fred Stressing make me look so much better than I deserve. First round is on me, gents.

Today INVADER ZIM #10 is out! I colored and lettered this one, Dennis and Jessie Hopeless wrote it, Dave Crosland drew it, and Jhonen Vasquez CONTROLS US ALL!!!
Go get it. It has one of my favorite covers.
Hey gang, the latest issue of INVADER ZIM hits stores today. Whats cool about this issue is that it's a "lost episode". It's adapted from a script that was originally intended for the show but never made it to production. This is new-vintage Zim here, folks. And it's AWESOME.
Oh, and there are pants. Lots and lots of pants.
Published by @onipress. Story by @JhonenV and @erictrueheart. Layouts by @essrose. Art by @DaveCrosland. Colors and letters by yours truly (and they even let me draw a teeny tiny bit).
I already letter INVADER ZIM and get to occasionally color a cover but this month I got to color the whole issue as well.
Everything is proceeding according to my plans. MUA HA HA!
Do-Gooders, by Oni Press, comes out today! I did the colors on this fun little children's book. As always J. Torres has done a splendid job and Justin was kind enough to intentionally leave the backgrounds vague, giving me the opportunity to really get tin there and give the colors a special "animated background" look.
An immensely fun book to work on! Cheers!
Today Princess Ugg Vol 2 hits the stands! This volumes collects issues #5-8 and is totally my favorite! GO GET IT!
