The Return of ZIM!on April 15, 2011 at 1:49 AM
…for one day only. And it’s only a reading… but still!
It seems there was this thing called InvaderCon, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the premiere of I.Z. It happened on March 26th & 27th at the Marriott Century Center in Atlanta, Georgia -and I’m just hearing about it now? Who went to this thing?! About 1000 PEOPLE on the first day, according to some Nickelodeon reps who attended undercover. They were identified as they kicked themselves, for canceling an excellent show with an international fanbase. Jhonen announced beforehand that he wouldn’t show, as he was too busy adorning his hyperbaric chamber with extra conduits and Gir stickers. Still, there were crazy costumes, folks from around the world, and the original voice cast reading in their entirety two unproduced scripts. If someone can front me about two years’ salary, I’ll animate them myself!
(By the way, that’s Elsa, Franky’s Bride dressed as Zim, and the girl dressed as Gir? You’ll meet her in Monday’s comic!)
