First things first

Think I'm gonna pull an XKCD and have text here for every comic. Not entirely sure why I started doing it less and less.

Also, there was a big delay right after strip 1260, but I just suddenly got a big burst of inspiration. Namely, the last frame. The rest of the comic just fell into place after that scene appeared in my head.

Metroid, Samus, Kraid, and the rest of 'em are all property of Nintendo, who to my knowledge wouldn't do anything such as sue me or shut poor Planet Zebeth down, because they're so damn nice, and Metroid kicks ass : }
This particular comic strip was made solely by me, by that happy little program known as KolourPaint. Yes, the one that everyone runs in fear from. That's why the comic looks the way it does.
