Invader ZIM fans unite for ANOTHER chance to make the ultimate fan experience happen with InvaderCON III: FINAL DOOM!

Here’s a Kickstarter to try and fund a third and final Invader ZIM fan convention aptly named InvaderCON III: FINAL DOOM.

  • The money raised here is for the cost of running the show itself, not the profit.  It’s based on what the first two InvaderCONs cost.
  • The event would take place near the end of July or early August in 2014.  This is so that school age fans can attend the show (with, we assume, their parental units).
  • The event would take place in (or near) Austin, Texas.
  • All physical items in the Kickstarter (decals, shirts, etc.) will be shipped out by December in time to be great gifts for the holiday.

Obey the fist and pledge today to help make another Zim convention possible!

Handmade Custom Zombie My Little Ponies from bydaianita.

These gory little equines are the epitome of cute/scary. It’s amazing what you can do with a little apoxie sculpt and acrylics.

Okay, you little stinkers, you listen up. I didn’t get my associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education to be upstaged by a bunch of super babies, you hear me? I’m the assistant teacher. I’ll deal with the issues. I don’t need you little turds coming in making a lot more work for me.

Clark, every time you pick up the whole toy box and throw it at a bully, that’s a lot of toys for me to pick up. Peter, you know when you spray spider webs all over everything? Well, guess who gets tasked with clean up duty on that? Anthony, if I have to patch another hole you blasted in the wall because you thought you saw a burglar, I’m going to flip. Jay, tell your parents to cut down on the soda, because every time you run around the room, you knock down all the artwork.

Basically, long story short, cut the crap, understand? Except you, Steve, you’re fine. I just don’t know why you hang out with these guys.

Want to feel old? Sure you do! Here’s a fun fact: Star Trek: The Next Generation ended its run almost 20 years ago. Ended its run.

Those of us who still get this reference are the last guardians of this sacred knowledge. When we pass, so too will all TNG memory.

If only there was some way that we could pass this information on to those who proceed us, as Data stored the number 3 in the episode “Cause and Effect”. Otherwise, ours shall be the last generation to enjoy The Next Generation.

Wait…I’ve got it! We’ll force our kids to watch it!

We’re taking a stand right here. Rock Paper Scissors means rock, paper, and scissors. No Spock. No lizard. Spock doesn’t vaporize anything. Lizards don’t poison Spock. Neither of them are even there.

We’re not just being purists here. The whole deal with Rock Paper Scissors is its effortless simplicity. If you need a diagram to check the results, you might as well be playing Axis & Allies. We can’t dictate what signs you throw in the company of your fellow heretics, but if you whip a Spock or a lizard out on us, you better be ready to get cut. Or broken. Or, at the very least, covered.

“I just need some basic answers. Am I in Kansas?”

“No.”

“Missouri?”

“No.”

“Nebraska?”

“No.”

“Oklahoma?”

“No.”

“Well, I think that’s all the neighboring states, so I’m going to call B.S. on you.”

“What about Colorado?”

“Colorado doesn’t border Kansas, wicked witch lady.”

“Yes it does! I lived in La Junta after grad school. It’s near the border.”

It’s fun to think about the zombie apocalypse, you guys, it really is. It’s fun to imagine the world being thrown into turmoil by an outbreak of some mysterious disease. But let’s be honest: if there was such an outbreak, we’d squash it. Quickly.

Why? Because of all this zombie stuff we have now. Movies, games, TV shows, shirts. You’ve been WAITING PATIENTLY for your turn to live out the Night of the Living Dead, or Dawn of the Dead, or World War Z, or whatever…

Except it won’t go how it goes in those movies, because EVERYONE who’s not a zombie will also be out hunting zombies, so the whole thing will be a wrap in, like, a half-hour.

See, movies ruin everything.

Keep that in mind the next time your buddy has one of those “hold my beer” ideas and wants you to “just trust me, man, trust me.” If it seems so stupid that you can’t imagine a way out of it without an injury of some kind, trust your instincts.

HINGES is a fantasy webcomic about a doll named Orio and her troubling companion Bauble.

New to the city of Cobble, Orio must depend on help where ever she can find it, but her assigned familiar Bauble has other interests.  And as the two explore the walls of their city, they find that they are not the only new arrivals.

In a place that runs like clockwork, it only takes a little disruption to upend a city.

Help Meredith McClaren print the first story arc of HINGES, comprising 109 color pages in a 6.5 x 9″ hardcover book by contributing to her Kickstarter here: Hinges Book 1: Clockwork City

I’ve already made my donation!

The year: 1988. The place: Crestwood Mall in suburban St. Louis. The scene: crowded, as Saturday afternoon turns into Saturday night. In the crush of humanity, one bold voice stands out. A 14-year-old nerd skips energetically through the throng cackling about how he’s invisible, annoying the holy hell out of everyone within earshot. “I’m invisible! Ha ha! Nobody can see me! I’m invisible!” Only the green-sport-coated figure of a mall security guard can stop this shameless rampage of idiocy.
