Invader Zim Creator’s Boba Fett Fan Art Book Is So Perfect It Hurts
Jhonen Vasquez, creator of the cult cartoon Invader Zim, shared some fan art highlighting an imbalance in recent episodes of The Book of Boba Fett.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Episode 6 of Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, “Chapter 6: From the Desert Comes a Stranger,” streaming now on Disney+.
Jhonen Vasquez, the writer and artist who created the cult cartoon Invader Zim, is apparently a fan of Boba Fett’s Book who feels a little sorry for the main character because he was left out of his own show for the past two episodes.
Posting on Twitter, Vasquez shared a drawing of Boba Fett on a simplified Tatooine background. The character is looking at an iPad and crying, with a thought bubble above his head that says, “But this my show.” Vasquez captioned the tweet, “Boba Fett is watching the last two episodes of his own show,” and added the hashtag #bobafett with his iconic Fett helmet emoji.
star wars fans were thrilled to see the return of Din Djarin from Star Wars: The Mandalorian in last week’s episode of Boba Fett’s Bookbut the crossover also caused confusion when Fett himself didn’t even appear, with the only link to his own story going through a message from Fennec Shand at the very end.
“Chapter 6: From the Desert Comes a Stranger,” which aired Wednesday this week, doubled down on Fett’s absence as well as guest appearances. The episode not only brought the bounty hunter Cad Bane from The Clone Wars for his live-action debut, but also welcomed Luke’s trusty droid R2-D2, Grogu, Din’s foundling, Ahsoka Tano, Cobb Vanth, and Luke Skywalker himself, aged as he was in The Mandalorian. While some viewers are unreservedly thrilled to see the favorites return, some may join Vasquez in wondering who owns the show. Boba Fett it is true.
Vasquez began his career with the indy comic book series Johnny the murderous maniacas well as its consequences Raclette and I feel sick. In 2001, his animated show Invader Zim premiered on Nickelodeon, telling the story of an outcast alien whose attempts to take over Earth never seem to get past school where he poses as a human student. The series ended in 2006 but retained a cult following and a sequel film titled Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus was made for Netflix and aired in 2019.
The first six episodes of Boba Fett’s Book are streaming now on Disney+. To see if Fett returns to the spotlight, watch the Season 1 finale on Wednesday, February 9.
