It's almost like a Wheel of Fortune-style before-and-after. "Solid Snake in a box" + "a box full of kittens" = "Solid Snake in a box full of kittens!"
The artists, Becky & Frank of webcomic Tiny Kitten Teeth, painted this particular rendition of Solid Snake ("in his natural habitat," they explain) for artist Olly Moss, at San Diego Comic Con.
Today has been rough. We should all take a moment to bask in the joy that is Metal Kitten Solid.
