''[[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=100501 Vexxarr]]'' is a comedy Sci-Fi webcomic by Hunter Cressall. The initial setup sounds similar to ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'': An alien EvilOverlord sends his flunky to conquer Earth, mostly to [[ReassignedToAntarctica get him out of the way]]. However, it plays out quite differently. For starters, the flunky Vexxarr is quite well aware that he is incompetent, or in his own words: "Let's say I know a thing or two about being volunteered for one-way missions." Secondly, Vexxarr tries an [[AlienInvasion open invasion]], with Literature/TheWarOfTheWorlds-esque walkers. It fails miserably, and Vexxarr is captured. Initially, the comic showed Vexxarr living on earth. After a while though, Vexxarr was allowed to leave, and since then the comic has centered on Vexxarr's journey through the galaxy, and trying to find a place that [[EverythingTryingToKillYou isn't inhabited by something that wants him dead.]] [[FateWorseThanDeath Or worse.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AchievementInIgnorance: Vexxarr is [[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=070317 "not even curious"]] as to how Spoorflix and Minionbot accomplished their impossible task.
-->'''Vexxarr:''' Sanity means knowing when not to call reality's bluff.
** And from a pair of Bleen marines:
--->'''Marine 1:''' Wait, you mean I've piloted a starship ''and'' destroyed a Lattrox capital ship?
--->'''Marine 2:''' Yeah... who knew how much you could accomplish if you just stopped bothering to learn how?

* GeneralFailure: The Bleen admiral fighting the war against the Lattroxx
-->'''Admiral:''' Why would I thank you for destroying my entire plan of attack?!?!
-->'''Cadet:''' Because you'd inevitably end up doing it yourself anyway? [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud I... said that out loud, didn't I?]]
-->'''Vexxarr:''' It's okay. Everyone was already thinking it.

** Sometimes not habitual enough.
--->'''Admiral:''' Silence, cadet! I do not wish to hear your insolent prattling on my bridge. Why I do not simply space you is beyond me.
--->'''Vexxarr:''' Probably because he would enjoy the change of scenery?
--->'''Cadet:''' Actually, I put in a requisition three times.

* TeleFrag: Although not involving an actual ''teleporter'', this is the result when Sploorfix tries to keep some [[spoiler:Lattrox boarders]] (who have been mutated by Twee-space into tiny, cute creatures) safe from Sid (who is now a horrible monster) by locking them in a cargo container...that, when the ship ''exits'' Twee-space, is ''far'' too small for the three now-suddenly-normal-sized [[spoiler:Lattrox]] inside.
-->'''Vexxarr:''' Some friendly advice? ''Never'' open this.
