The purpose of this strip is basically to pad the 8-bit "storyline" and draw it out longer. I just thought it up real quick, then went ahead and made it. I was bored that day.
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.
