Backup threatening power

Well, Ridley employed her, takes care of her, and is always around her. It just makes sense that she sees him as her best friend.

No. No, no, no, no, NO! You're LYING! You MUST be lying. You're just trying to save your ass from having to pay two arms and a leg for a drink!
Oh, she'd better not be, if she knows what's good for her.
Oh pfft, or else what?
Hey there, Samus. If you screw over Ridley, they you screw over me, and that's bad.
Oh right... that.
Noone will ever find any itty bitty piece of you if you do anything to my best friend.
Aww, always lookin' out for me.
She's STILL queen of the jerks...
What was that Kraid?
I said 'she still keeps getting perks'... like in the bar and stuff.
Oh... well, I suppose I do, yeah.
Well, that's all besides the point, because I'm not lying.

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.
