Earthquakes aplenty

Strip 355: Earthquakes aplenty

Well, first up, let me explain a bit about Metroid 2. After you kill all the Metroids in a given area, there's an earthquake.
The earthquake basically lowers the lava level that you will most likely have previously passed by or over, allowing you to go to the next area of the game, where you kill more Metroids, etc, etc. So anytime I make a mention of an earthquake, that means that the lava has dropped, and you get to go to the next area.

Moments later
Ahh... that was entertaining.
When Samus says that all those flying Metroid-looking things die, she means...
*rumble* *shake* *rumble* *vibrate*
Ok, seriously... what the hell keeps doing that every so often?
Why are you asking me? How in the hell should I know?!?
DAMNIT! I had JUST gotten the hang of getting my way out of this pit, and then that damn earthquake shook me down to the bottom of it again! Well... time to start over...

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 MSPaint. Yes, the one that everyone runs in fear from. That's why the comic looks the way it does.
