Well, it DID probably help... although trying to "dive" into the land would have been tempting, just to see how deep you go :P

Crap, I think I see ground below. Well... probably for the best, in reality. Oh, but this is gonna hurt.
Actually, I should uncurl and flatten out as much as I can to spread out the shock as much as possible... see if I can make this even slightly less painful on me.

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.
