A path too far

Ok, crapcrapcrapcrapcrap... thinkthinkthink... c'mon, ideas people, ideas! A place to hide, cross the lava, vat of booze... SOMETHING!
Well... there is ONE potential answer to the first two of those.
Well, a long while back, there used to be a hidden path up in the kinda ceiling of this place. I crawled along it for a while... so it might go all the way across the lava.
YES! You are a godsend. C'mon, lead us to our path of salvation.

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.
