SDCC 2016: Invader Zim's Jhonen Vasquez on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Children of the future, I would like to introduce you to our pal, Dark Lord and Master, Jhonen Vasquez. Jhonen created a comic book called Johnny the Homicidal Maniac which taught us all how to get in touch with our true feelings of blind, unadulterated hatred for mankind and to channel that positive energy toward craft projects which would one day open a door to a black universe where the old ones sleep. It's good to have goals. Jhonen also made a comic called Squee which personified all of our rightful fears in the tiny, quivering body of a small boy tormented nightly by all the evil this reality has to offer. It's a classic. Later, Jhonen would move onto a little indie cartoon series called Invader Zim which was about a green alien boy that just wanted to be loved. Blind, unwavering, relentless love that comes with no questioning or resistance. It's the most American thing he's done to date....UNTIL NOW!! Watch Jhonen Vasquez out-crazy Teen Titans Go in a special San Diego Comic Con exclusive cartoon short...

Thank you Jhonen Vasquez! You are a gift to an unworthy humanity. Your blood sacrifice is forthcoming.

Also...I now demand Jhonen TMNT style toys in scale with the Invader Zim ones. Do eeeeet.
