It's always those darn snakes.


Xob's a she?! Wait, who's xob anyway?



Zob's other half.


Then why did Plok not even encounter a single snake in the Flea Pit?


Why does this remind me of Super Metroid?

Was this whole encounter based off that one part where Samus found that baby Metroid?



The metallic orange and the apparent body figure to some degree, plus the lack of visible skin could be seen as Samus-like (or perhaps Samus is Zob-like), and thus contribute to that effect. They may have had the same armor supplier in 1986. I think those are Zob's real oblique and serratus muscles, though.



>Then why did Plok not even encounter a single snake in the Flea Pit?

It's not the same location.


You mean there's more than one Flea Pits?



Yep there are 7.


Metroid! This is totally Metroid! Jhon confirmed it.



I'm new to the comic. I can't believe I'm just now finding out about this! I used to play Plok all the time as a kid! It's so awesome to see the guy doing stuff again; thought it'd take Smash Bros. for that to ever happen (and I was well aware that, if it was the only way, then there was absolutely no way at all). I'm definitely going to be stalking this comic!

On topic, though, I'm quite curious about this character, and Xob as well. I'm waiting to see how this all ties together...

Welcome on board, WarriorWare!



Come to think of it, this comic kinda reminds me of the recently ended Smash Bros. webcomic "Brawl in the Family." Like, Wubba Duck is Kirby, Plok is Dedede, and Rockyfella is Meta Knight.

So that's TWO holes in my heart filled by this comic! :D



I never thought about it before but Metroid & Zub (Zob) both originated in 1986. Metroid is a far more sophisticated game of course. Zub is practically a mini-game in comparison.
