Last March, InvaderCON took place in Atlanta, Georgia. It was, according to the convention's Facebook page, the sole convention in the U.S. that catered to Invader ZIM fans. But, the short-lived Nickelodeon cartoon, created by comic book author/artist Jhonen Vasquez (Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, Squee) has grown in popularity recently (we've seen proof in the form of Gir sweatshirts at Hot Topic) and, apparently, so has demand for the convention. Next summer, InvaderCON is set to come to somewhere "near Los Angeles" in late-July of 2012.
Jhonen Vasquez is listed as a guest for the next convention, which should be enough to get Invader ZIM fans ready to pack their bags now. Also, they're bringing in stars from the series, including Andy Berman (Dib), Richard Horvitz (Zim), Rikki Simons (Gir), Eric Trueheart (Abductor Blue), and Melissa Fahn (Gaz).
