This series of strips felt more important at the time because it was the first real “crossover” between my two casts.  Walky was invading the Roomies! folks, and it was sort of a big deal.  Fifteen years later, I think of all the Roomies!/It’s Walky! folks as generally one huge blob, with the Shortpacked! folks being kind of segregated.  And over time, Dumbing of Age has chipped away at that wall, as well.  It’s just one big crazy group of weirdos.
