The deciding factor

Sadly, promising Kraid a crikey if he eats the Zoomer wouldn't work, since it still comes down to him eating unconsciously.

So... nothing I can do to change your mind? Recruit some new tribe members? Booze? C'mon!
And let's see... all of those still end with a not insignificant chance of being devoured alive. Yyyyep, still gonna have to pass.
Cool, I'll see you guys later, I've got a poster to destroy.
Son of a bitch, so close.
You've changed your mind? WOOO-
Now don't get over-excited just yet. As much as I fear being eaten, and as little as I care about the poster... let's not forget the most important factor... that if I kiss you... it'll screw over Samus.
...Ouch, man.
And my blasting the crap out of you will screw YOU over.
And if you do, by god I will crikey the everloving PISS out of you.
Well, that covers one problem. But there's one other precaution I need...
Is this REALLY necessary? You have no idea. Now let's check the lengths again... not a centimeter too long!
So stupid... can't turn away...

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.
