News, Happenings, and Whatever Other Junk


If you're reading this right now, all I have to say is... wow. It's shocking to me that anyone still comes around to this site, over three years since the last comic. I know most people gave up hope a long time ago, but there's still a handful of you that still wait for that next comic. Either you're all completely misguided or I'm just that awesome. Maybe a combination of the two. But either way, I wanted to express my appreciation. I may have abandoned this project a long time ago but some of you didn't.

Why did I give up, anyway? It was a lot of reasons. Part of it was that I started getting busy and had less time. But frankly, I just kinda grew out of it. I started this comic when I was 16 and what appealed to me back then wasn't doing it for me anymore. The Metroid series in general was losing my interest as well (for which I actually blame the community. Not you guys so much, but a lot of the Metroid fans out there were a bunch of pretentious, stuck-up cocks and that just ruined it for me).

But lately I've been thinking about this comic again. Not a lot, but it started nagging at the back of my mind again. I think it's always bothered me how I stopped production on such a cliffhanger and never saw it through properly. But it's been so long since I've done one of these that any storyline ideas had long since left my head. So I just kept ignoring it.

Until tonight. I was bored, and for whatever reason I started reading through the archives again. I have to admit that a lot of those earlier ones were pretty horrible, but there are still a few gems in there. Reading the strips brought me back to 2005 and put me in a nostalgic mood. And I decided, "You know what? Fuck it. I'm going to write a new strip."

Besides, it was either this or laundry. And I hate laundry.

So enjoy this batch of strips I whipped up. I'm not going to make any promises that more will be forthcoming, but who knows. If you feel like contacting me, feel free to email me at (ironically in the years since I quit this site I've adopted actually savageboredom as my default online alias).

Thanks for sticking around guys.

PS: I hope I still remember how to update all of the site mechanics. If something's not working right, let me know.
