Now I'm looking forward to When Becky Met Robin. I've got a feeling that this will be a bizarre and surreal moment that may leave Leslie wondering just what had just happened in her life.

Aw, Leslie and Becky are cute together. This feels good and I'm not going to get worried. Maybe a little.

Either that or Joyce will end up punching out Robin's lights. Yeah, hitting a Congresscritter is a Federal crime but does she really want to have a long string of witnesses up on the stand in court telling the world about how she was in the middle of a home invasion when she was assaulted?

Seriously, I love Joyce in today's strip. Both how she's drawn and her dialogue makes her come across as really heroic and true in spirit.

Meanwhile, Leslie is continuing to work to bring my prediction of an in-class nervous breakdown to pass.

Not only did Leslie plan a whole class about slapping down Roz for her earlier behaviour, she's manoeuvred her into leading it! That's cold!

Well, be anything except sane.  Amber is cracking more and more as this strip goes on.

Well, both of those things are pretty true for comic book heroes... They're always pulling unknown powers out of various bodily orifices, and have at best dubious sanity.

I'd argue anyone who decides to put in a Halloween costume and run around punching people can't be of too solid of a state of mind to begin with.

Especially when the people they are punching are armed or capable of snapping steel girders with their hands. And Amber has faced off against the former, balanced on the hood of a speeding car.

So, as of today's strip (4/24), Amber having something like Dissociative Identity Disorder is as confirmed as it likely is going to get, given Willis's general dislike for labelling his characters' mental states. This is a big revelation for poor Danny who, I suspect, had previously thought that dating Amazi-Girl, not Amber, was either a kind of kinky costume thing or even a secret identity thing.

Here's the weird part: Both of the alters living in that body like him a lot. This could lead to one weird romantic triangle. It will be a test of his feelings for both Amber and Amazi-Girl whether he's willing to take on that complex relationship.

Nothing like having a polyamorous relationship with one person.

The thing is that Amber is more comfortable hiding and she has no incentive to change that at the moment. She's also proud enough not to want to go back on her decisions, no matter how ill-considered. I think that the time has come for Danny to move on... again.

Sad, but true.
Personally, I'd like to see Danny and Sal get *back* together...

( I know - different universe, but the Danny/Sal thing always smacked as cruel (to both of them) to me...)

Danny and Sal? I read far enough in the other 'verse to get that, but...good god, why?

Mainly because they started off together, and in their heart of hearts certainly seemed to *want* to be together.
Danny loved Sal. Sal loved Danny. But ...stuff.  (Nooo, not 'Butt stuff'!!)

I think it would be a nice tip o' the hat to allow them *both* to be happy (together) in this particular corner of the walkyverse.
(Old romantic that I am!)  :-)


ETA:
I think this (below) is from the redux, which is what I read.
I dunno if you read 'It's Walky' from its conception, or if you saw this *new* intro...

They seem to be a great couple... And Danny isn't really the weak 'Charlie Brown-ish' figure he eventually became.

Just read it again... Still think it's a damn shame...   :cry:
