In case you missed it: our #InvaderCON3 #Kickstarter has passed it’s goal!
Right now there are a LOT of happy Invader ZIM fans on the Internet.
In 2011, we launched a convention project (designed to be a “one time thing”) called InvaderCON – the Invader ZIM fan convention. It took place in Atlanta and it served as a reunion of the voices of Zim, Dib, Gaz, and Gir. Over 1,000 people showed up and everyone had a great time.
By popular demand (and with the agreement of series creator Jhonen Vasquez to appear) we created a “sequel to the one time only” InvaderCON convention: InvaderCON II: DOOMCON. Another 1,000+ people attended from 42 different states and 7 different countries.
We learned that Invader ZIM fandom really IS a global thing.
After that, we kept getting requests to do ANOTHER InvaderCON – but we had moved on to our other projects. Which ones?

- Florida Anime Experience in Orlando, Florida!
- Florida Comics Experience in Melbourne, Florida!
- PinUpalooza in Orlando, Florida!
- WasabiCon in Jacksonville, Florida!
</end shameless plug>
Thus it was devised that we would create a Kickstarter for InvaderCON III: FINAL DOOM. Similar to how some of our staff (former directors) planned the final JACON convention in Orlando, Florida – we opted to make sure it was CLEAR that this is THE last InvaderCON.
(The final JACON was named “JACON X: ENDGAME” so that there’d be no doubt.)
So we launched the Kickstarter… and five days before completion it hit goal. So pending the outcome on Sunday night at midnight (East Coast Time) – there WILL be another InvaderCON.
