InvaderCON was a fan convention organized by Green Mustard Entertainment (aka “Wasabi Anime“) designed to be a celebration for the popular cartoon Invader ZIM. It took place twice: InvaderCON was March 26-27, 2011 at the Marriott Century Center in Atlanta, Georgia and InvaderCON II: DOOMCON was July 28-29, 2012 in Los Angeles California. Approximately 1000 people attended the convention each time.
The event producers have promised to create InvaderCON III: FINAL DOOM pending the success of a Kickstarter campaign.
Invader ZIM initially ran on Nickelodeon from 2001-2003 and is still popular with fans to this day. Even though production ceased almost a decade ago, companies still produce new merchandise featuring the cartoon’s characters and fans continue to rave about the artistic merits of the series. Invader ZIM is a phenomenon that evolved into more than “just another kid’s cartoon.”
