Oni Press will release two special issues tied to TV properties this summer: Invader ZIM: The Dookie Loop Horror and Rick and Morty Presents: Hotel Immortal.
The storyline sounds promising: interdimensional creatures called Chrono-Dumpers eat time and use our dimension as a toilet, creating an infinite time loop. Dib and ZIM live in the poop loop forever; each day they wake, the tuxedoed pig farts, the world ends.
Vasquez explained his approach to the story. "When I heard that we were reaching the final issue of the Invader ZIM comics, I immediately started thinking of ways to end it as stupidly as possible, which is a pretty big challenge considering the levels of stupid the comic had already gone to," he said. "My only hope is that when people read it, their brains won’t work anymore. That’s how I’ll know we did our jobs right."
Variant covers for the issue will be created by Vasquez, Cole Ott, J.R. Goldbert, and Aaron Alexovich.
Oni is tying the release of Invader ZIM: The Dookie Loop Horror to the 20th anniversary of the property. The show actually premiered on March 30, 2001 (see "Johnny the Homicidal Space Invader?").
