Keen followers of the Metroid series may be aware of the Comic Bom Bom manga, Metroid: Samus & Joey. This non-canon story was first published in the magazine in 2003 and focused around Joey, a young boy who is saved by Samus Aran after an attack on his village, and thereafter swears to stay by her side as a side-kick.

The manga - which was illustrated by Idzuki Kouji - was then compiled into three volumes, but the final chapter - Metroid EX: Samus & Joey - was never pulled together and published in its own volume, and can only be found in the pages of Comic Bom Bom.

The guys over at Metroid Database have been working tirelessly over the past 5 years to scan and translate the entire Samus & Joey series, and have finally completed work on Metroid EX, making the entire storyline complete.
