It looks like Netflix have committed quite the daring raid to liberate Invader Zim. Maybe it was hidden in a vault over at Nickelodeon, perhaps it was in some lock box in a hot topic warehouse or maybe Jhonen Vasquez had it stored away in some secret room in his attic. No matter what Netflix have liberated it and it’s almost like nothings changed.
Zim and his arch nemesis Dib are back for another dark and Nihalistic sci-fi adventure and honestly I am pumped. The show was always just weird enough that it managed to age very well. Netflix for their part have kept the classic animation style of dark rich colors. Of course I would be remiss if I did not mention the overly sarcastic Gaz and the absolutely bat shit crazy Gir are back. But for me the icing on the cake is that Richard Horvitz, the voice of Zim, has easily slipped back into the role of Earths weirdest and loudest threat. Yes this one looks like another easy win for Netflix.
