Rosearik Rikki Allen Simons (born September 8, 1970) is an American voice actor, writer, graphic novelist, and artist, best known as the voice of GIR in the Nickelodeon animated series, Invader Zim. Simons also co-created and wrote the Robotech: Clone comic series. In 2017, Simons voiced his first non-Invader Zim role as the Red Trollblin and some incidental Kotassian characters in the Cartoon Network series, Mighty Magiswords created by Jhonen Vasquez fan, Kyle A. Carrozza.[1] He also does some frequent on-off voices on the show from time to time such as the Borfl in "Get that BORFL" and Dill in "To Balderly Go".


In addition to his graphic novel and novel work, Simons also painted backgrounds for animation, including Jackie Chan Adventures and Invader Zim. He painted both issues of Jhonen Vasquez's comic I Feel Sick. Simons also works with his wife, illustrator Tavisha Wolfgarth-Simons, writing, co-illustrating, and coloring comics and novels.
