The main cast of It's Walky!

It's Walky! is the second comic by David Willis set in the Walkyverse, and ran from 1999 to 2004. It's the dawn of the new millennium, and Earth is under attack by midget aliens in purple spacesuits, a giant robot monkey, British ninjas, and an omnipotent cheesehead. But no one there notices because they're too busy trying to sleep with each other.

Whilst It's Walky! officially started after Roomies! finished, several key storylines had taken place during the run of Roomies!, and several characters in It's Walky! were introduced during its run. Elements of what were to come began early on when the Aliens abducted Joe and Joyce Brown, and the returned later on to capture Sal.

Print CollectionsEdit

Despite its popularity, It's Walky! is currently the only portion of the Walkyverse without a print collection.

It's Walky! $100 TheatreEdit

After the official end of It's Walky!, a short epilogue began which updated every Saturday if David Willis got $100 - hence the title. $100 Theatre followed Jason Chesterfield's crack team - SEMME veterans Marcie and Travis, plus oddly familiar newcomer Machete - as they faced off against Monkey Master and his new creation, the Electric Man, with former SEMME agent Marcie.

With the help of Sal and Ultra Car, Jason and his group finally prevail, but Jason breaks up with Sal afterwards, angry at both her illegal interference and her lack of faith in his abilities. At the very end, it's revealed that Machete is actually Bobby Walkerton, son of Joyce and Walky from the future. Bobby is confronted by Head Alien II, who threatens to kill his parents and erase him from existence.

This storyline is later continued in Joyce and Walky!, It's Pregnancy!, and eventually Shortpacked!.

It's Walky!: ResurrectionEdit

A tie-in computer game for It's Walky!, titled Resurrection, was designed but never released.

TriviaEdit

Walkerton
  • The webcomic was called Walkerton (the name of a town Willis lived near, and also the town he named Walky after) for a few weeks. He later changed the name of the comic to It's Walky! because the domain Walkerton.com was owned by a news site serving the actual city Walkerton, Ontario. The domain itswalky.com was available so he just renamed the comic. [1]
