The first strip after a three month hiatus. Three whole months, and this was the best I could come up with? How sad. Well, at least I got that Invader Zim quote in there, so it's not a total loss.
Metroid, Samus Aran, Space Pirates, and all that other stuff are properties of Nintendo. Contra is a property of Konami. All other characters are property of their respective owners. Pretty much everything else is property of me, unless specifically noted otherwise.
