For some reason, a number of people thought I was permanently going 8-bit. Okay, so that number was only two, but still. But don't worry, I shall return to 16-bit (32-bit?) glory in a few strips.
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.
