SWIPE: Invader Zim Vs Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt

Posted by August 11, 2010 Comment

This post is going to play havoc with my Google traffic I’m sure. Anyway.

Anyway, this is PASWG (oh by the way don’t even google image search the abbreviation, you get “pawg” instead which stands for Phat Ass White Girl apparently) from Gainax.Net. Big (ish) in Japan, expect it to do quite well in America along the usual colonial lines, with the standard amount of complaints from concerned parents. You know the drill. But say… doesn’t that the dog-type creature look a little familiar?

Yes that one. Surely reminiscent of Gir from Jhonen Vasquez’ Invader Zim?

Just a tad…

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself.  If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
