T3H Metroid Galaxy is a hand-drawn, black and white stick figure comedy comic series. The plot of the series and several of its characters are drawn from the Metroid video game series. The series tells the story of Samus Aran, a female bounty hunter, and her adventures. The story uses comedy elements such as self-humor, breaking the fourth wall, running gags, and, most commonly, parodies of popular culture elements, usually media such as TV shows, movies, or video games, to achieve its humorous effect. The series began its run on May 16, 2006, and has over 150 issues, including a spinoff miniseries, T3H Zelda Galaxy.
