Invader Zim Fans Conquer LA in 2012

Before you say something like "This will never draw a crowd"...there is a JemCon every year and they have a good ole outrageous time. Surely, Invader Zim can draw in the fanatics from across the globe..and apparently, it has happened before and no one told us!


By popular demand, the convention will happen “one more time” and features the voices of Dib, Gaz, Gir, and Zim along with series creator Jhonen Vasquez.

(Los Angeles, CA, September 15, 2011) InvaderCON II: DOOMCON will take place at the Torrance Marriott South Bay (in Southern California) July 28-29, 2012. The convention is a sequel to the “one time only” InvaderCON that attracted one thousand Invader ZIM fans to Atlanta, Georgia in March of 2011. It will feature voice talent and production staff from the popular cartoon along with the series creator: Jhonen Vasquez.

Scheduled to appear are the voices of the four main characters from Invader ZIM: Andy Berman (Dib,) Melissa Fahn (Gaz,) Rikki Simons (Gir,) and Richard Horvitz (Zim.) Joining them will be series scribe Eric Trueheart and (in a rare convention appearance) creator Jhonen Vasquez.

Tickets go on sale Sunday, September 18, 2011 on the website: Weekend admission to the event is $50, but discount passes can be purchased in advance. One day passes will be available at the door for $30 (Saturday) and $25 (Sunday.) Tickets for premium events such as The Dinner of DOOM! and the I’m Makin’ Waffles! Breakfast will go on sale later in 2011.

For up to the moment information, please follow InvaderCON on Facebook ( or Twitter (
While I'd immediately love to just run off to this show, there are several things on the website that give me red flags. 1 being that they have 6 guests (but may be adding more) and the site states "not all guests will be available for autographs." The website goes on to mention they have tacked on some fees to each guest's autograph price to "keep the door prices low." Since there are currently no events listed beyond a diner and breakfast that you have to pay for separately (and in addition to your entrance to the con), I'm not sure what you actually DO all day at this show. Someone please clue me in?
