12. Moving

Life changes. (The full-color version is here; I left the first two panels for symbolism’s sake.)



Iron Aran

What!? A copyrighted character on an otherwise completely original blog? Wait… TWO?! (And am I supposed to get permission to use their likenesses?)

That’s right, folks! I don’t limit myself to only my own creative properties. That would be exhausting. Instead, once in a while, I carefully and accurately combine characters from Marvel Comics and Nintendo, respectively. Which ends up being just as exhausting, as it turns out.

I guess this specific character, a combination of Tony Stark/Iron Man and Samus Aran, arrived at just the right time. I started creating her and similar mashup characters on a hunch after seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron, and I’ve finished her art just as Nintendo wraps us its E3 Digital Event and Treehouse Live presentation!

Even more surprising is the fact that a new Metroid game is in the works for the 3DS… but, unfortunately, it’s not at all what I was expecting. I’m happy to know it’s not just a 3-on-3 Blast Ball game (which was first shown at the Nintendo World Championships 2015), but I’m also getting a bit impatient. I mean, come on. The fans are ready. The Wii U is ready. Reggie’s body is ready. Give us Metroid Prime 4 already!

That, and Zelda Wii U. But before I go off on another Nintendo tangent, I have an announcement to make: Tomorrow is going to be a big day for Shenanigans. Some will laugh, some will cry, but in the end it’s going to be inevitable. Be sure to tune into the strip up on the top of the blog or on Tapastic tomorrow for the big news!
