Invader Zim

Created by Jhonen Vasquez. Written by Jhonen Vasquez and Eric Trueheart. Portland, OR: ONI Press, 2016

Zim, sent to earth (with his pet robot Gir) by "The Almighty Tallest" (who just get rid of him), believes he's here to study Earth's weaknesses. Dib, a boy in Zim's class, knows Zim's an alien but no one believes him. It's one corny joke after another with a few mean pranks that can be used as talking points about bullying, appropriateness, and civic/moral responsibility.
