“When we first created the idea of InvaderCON in 2010 we knew that there were a lot of Invader ZIM enthusiasts out there that would enjoy meeting fellow fans along with some of the television show’s creative talent. We had a good feeling that convention would be a success and, based on the turnout and subsequent reviews, it was.
It wasn’t until AFTER InvaderCON actually happened in March of 2011, though, that the convention’s popularity REALLY took off. Hundreds of new fans discovered the convention (which was designed from the beginning to be a one time event) via word of mouth, social media, and this YouTube video. We started getting emails and messages asking us to do it again.
So here we are… talking about creating InvaderCON II: DOOMCON. It would be an encore presentation of our original event and would happen only once. (READ: This will not be an annual event.) You’ve heard the buzz on teh Interwebz; you’ve seen posts on Facebook hinting at it; folks are tweeting on Twitter about it; but let’s skip past all the hype and get down to facts. Here you go:
Hopefully this will curb some of the speculation that has been going on. Thanks again for everyone’s support for this crazy little project of ours. We appreciate all of you! -The InvaderCON Tallest”

It looks like the staff at Green Mustard Entertainment (the folks who put InvaderCon together) have issued a statement saying they’re running low on tickets.
