What good is a slide?

Yep... when the world is pretty minimalistic at best... if you've got access to a slide, you bilk it for all the entertainment it's worth.

Also, get your mind out of the gutter. I didn't notice the double-entendre when I first made the comic :P

Several minutes later...
So how come you didn't go with the others to look for more helpers?
Eh, they're a lot faster than me, and are more familiar with the other flying types. I mainly just know lots of ground-dwellers.
But hey... you ever need anything dragged through small tunnels or paths, you know who to look for.
I guess. Although, something's always confused me... what's up with everyone liking Ridley's slide to begin with? I mean... it's just a freakin' slide!
Have you ever TRIED looking around before? Everything on this stupid, Metroid-thingy-forsaken planet is blocky, pointy, and covered in corners. The closest thing to entertainment we get around here is bouncing on a bush, and that's both lame AND gets boring pretty fast.
Y'know, I never thought of it that way before. Whenever I got bored, I went to Ridley's.
Yeah, we USED to, but some dumb broad kept killing everyone whenever they got close to it!
Yeah, I do that when I'm bored too... and call me a dumb broad again and you'll follow suit.
You said you wouldn't kill me.
I said I'd TRY not to kill you.

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.
