This is the worst loss.jpg I’ve ever seen.
From July 22 – 27, 2002, I had a guest strip week! Josh Phillips of the webcomic Avalon (the best) filled in for me, accomplishing so many things, the greatest of which is Walky’s “SKEEBALL! face” in the final strip, which is a term I use to this day to describe the double-thumbs-up manic-grin I often deploy in my own art AND LIFE. Where are you, Josh Phillips? I love you and I miss you.
On July 13, 2001, It’s Walky! took a weird week-long break for reasons. *deigns to actually read the first one* Oh, BotCon. Sure. Anyway, by “break” I mean “I still drew strips but they were ridiculous.” So here they are, since they don’t really belong in the proper archive.
I found these hidden in between the real pages while grabbing them out of the binder to scan. These three strips, a Friday, Saturday, and a Sunday, would have run in place of the strips leading up to the “four words — your twin sister Sal” thing. I guess I decided that they needed more punch and I redrew them. Good choice, me!
EDIT: Heh, actually, I think what I wanted was to get Walky unstuck from that wall for this sequence. Again, good choice, me!
