Click to preview The Anatomy of Metroid, Vol. I (Pocket) pocket and trade book

In the beginning, there was a girl, who looked like a robot, and who set out to destroy alien parasites and the evil biological computer-woman who sought to use the parasites to conquer the galaxy. From that rather weird germ sprouted not only a classic series, but countless fantastic imitators as well. Explore the design language and structure of Metroid, Metroid II, and their quirky cousin Kid Icarus in this 156-page survey of three 8-bit classics.
