After over a decade since the show aired its last unaired episode, independent comic book publishing company Oni Press announced an ''Invader Zim'' comic book revival in February 2015, in collaboration with Nickelodeon and Jhonen Vasquez. The 1st issue was released on July 8, 2015 written by Jhonen himself. Following issue 2, it has been written by Eric Trueheart, drawn by Aaron Alexovich, and colored by Rikki Simons, all veterans of the television series, and been released on a fairly consistent monthly schedule. And in April 2017, [[http://ew.com/tv/2017/04/04/nickelodeon-invader-zim-tv-movie/ Nickelodeon confirmed]] that the series will return to animation as a 66-minute movie for TV, with the voice cast reprising their roles.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Invader Zim might be the most cynical kids cartoon ever created! Everyone is either apathetic, a complete moron, ungodly cruel, or all of the above.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverRecycleYourSchemes: Usually played straight. There is one subversion in the comics, however, as Issue 22 sees Zim once again trying to disperse Flamin' Hot Cheezo dust into the Earth's atmosphere in order to make the planet uninhabitable for humans, something he tried once before in Issue 12, though in this case he changes the planned method of dispersal.


Added DiffLines:

* StoryArc: Issues 22-25 of the comics are the "Arc of Virooz", referencing the mysterious force responsible for infecting GIR with a virus that makes him try to kill Zim.

* CavalierConsumption: Gir does this frequently. Other characters also have their moments.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSnackIsMoreInteresting: Gir does this frequently. Take ''Plague of Babies'' for example: while Zim fights for his life against the Giganto-Baby, Gir enjoys a bucket of fried chicken and mayo (even eating a still clucking chicken). Other characters also have their moments.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Compare the unaired pilot to the first episode of the series (or just the series in general). The unaired pilot was goofy, lighter, and had more of a basis of exaggerated fun, while the series was more darker, lighting was toned down, and the humor was much more darker.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Issue 21 as the comic has this as the way [[FreakyFridayFlip Gaz-as-Zim]] takes over the world -- first, she gets everyone's attention by destroying all the world militaries' weapons, calling it an act of world peace. Then, she solves world hunger with a new artificial food, which happens to contain an alien chemical that makes people stupid and easy to control. This leads to the world's leaders all asking her to take over as ruler of Earth.
