Brand new Metroid shirt based on original .gif by College Humor illustrator Caldwell Tanner

I was inspired to draw a Sad Metroid after seeing the Busted Tee’s great Bummerman shirt. There’s something delightfully melancholic about giving emotions to blank-slated characters. It’s kind of like watching a clown cry, except in this case the clown is a life-sucking videogame alien parasite, but you get the idea. Also, I’m a big fan of the Metroid series, and always felt it never got enough love, which is another thing this Metroid is sad about. He’s very complex.” — @caldy
