Fan-made Metroid manga looks freaking fantastic

Recommended Videos

I’m really impressed with this manga. Most of it’s in color, and all of it looks awesome. The story is pretty weird; there’s a whole lot of words, but nothing really happens. That’s OK though. As far as free online comics go, you can’t ask for much more than this.

As with so many things that Nintendo fans produce, I have to wonder why Nintendo of America doesn’t make use of this comic. How much would it cost them to get the rights to it and release it as a pre-order bonus for Metroid: Other M, or hire the artist to draw some manga to correspond with the game? It would probably be a hell of a lot cheaper than hiring Beyonce to sell Rhythm Heaven.

Speaking of Metroid: Other M, now that I’m done with Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, I’ve been thinking about the game a lot. Can’t believe that it’s coming out in just a couple of months. With this, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, and Donkey Kong Country Returns, 2010 could be the best year for Nintendo sequels ever.

Am I onto something with that proclamation, or am I just high off of all that half-naked Samus oogling? Hit the link below to oogle half naked Samus for yourself, then tell me how high you feel in the comments.
