Above is merely the first two frames of a massively vertical comic chronicling the life a green Space Invader. Created by Ehud Lavski for Dorkly, it ought to make you think about your actions towards gaming's standard cannon fodder. Are they truly evil? Do they have families? Doesn't it seem odd that Space Invaders, Goombas, Moblins, or other such low-level grunts could potentially have these rich personal histories, yet it takes but a matter of seconds to extinguish their lives?

Who is the real monster?
