Last Resort

I know many of you saw this coming. Our favorite juvie penguins wouldn’t miss out on an opportunity to capitalize on the rock shortage.

Questions & Answers

I’ve seen several questions pop up in the comment lately and haven’t had a chance to answer them, so I thought I’d take a moment to now.

When will the book collection be coming out?
I have just finished up some projects that have kept me busy so I am just now getting around to putting the book together, laying out the pages and creating an additional story. This is the first one I’ve put together so I don’t really have an idea of when it will be available but I’ll keep you posted here on any progress.

Why don’t you do a storyline on how Wally ended up in Antarctica from the Arctic?
This is something I planned on telling from the beginning. Most likely it will not appear in the comic strip but as a seperate comic with full page layouts like a comic book. It will either be included as a bonus in a future book collection or appear as it’s own book. It is a ways off as it is something I want to take time to do and make it special.

How long does it take you to make one comic strip? From thinking up the idea, to drawing it, to completing it and then finally the upload?
Ideas really vary, sometimes one pops in my head that apparently was conjured up in the back of my mind, so I can’t say how long it took, but it seems instantaneous. When I’m writing little storylines I will write several strips at a time, maybe five in a half hour sitting or so. Other times I just sit there, trying to come up with a single gag and just going through all my brainstorms and distracting myself for hours. Creating the actual comic seems to average maybe two hours each. Even the simple ones that seem like they are just copy and paste can take up to an hour getting the text right and cleaning up the frames and word balloons. The longest ones are three to four hours, when I add lots of extra details and hand drawn stuff into the mix.

Where’d he get the paint?
Like most bears, Wally is curious and loves digging through trash and storage places. So yeah, he gets most stuff from the science outposts. They must wonder why they have to keep restocking, especially their chocolate supplies.

Why isn’t there any Wally merchandise?
There are some some shirts but just with his face. I’ll be working on new merchandise real soon.

Was their anyone at the costume party you went to dressed up like Dr. Osbourne or Super Wally?
Aha, I can’t believe I didn’t think of doing that. Would have been awkward showing up in underwear though, I suppose we could have done their imagined outfits.

    Hilarious! When all else fails… Buy it from the juvies. 😆 We haven’t seen them in a while and I’m glad to see them back. Love what Osborne says in the second and third panel. 😛

  • BriGuy

    This has just become one of my favorites!

  • Shrew

    Another good one! Keep ’em coming dude, I’ve missed these regular updates. You seriously rock.

  • Shrew

    Haha, um…no pun intended. 😛

  • Phizlo

    Ha ha ha! I like the junior penguins! They sell lots of things, like snow cones and air and now rocks. I really liked the air one.

  • Edi

    Hey Tyler, another question you could answer for us – When are you going to make posters?

  • BriGuy

    Either that or there’s a huge pile of rocks with a sign that says free rocks. Just kidding. Although knowing the juvies, they are probably a bunch a Wally’s snowballs painted black or they are real expensive.

    lol… what I dont get is why they dont just make a huge snow fortress like osborne did [url=http://wallyandosborne.com/2005/07/01/snow-forts/]at the begining[/url]….. lol.

    well here’s my penguin fact:

    Chinstrap penguin can dive down to a maximum of 230 feet,
    and most of their dives only last about 30 seconds! 😯

    Tyler, your comedic genuis has done it again! Keep up the good work! I love the every day updates! I can’t wait to see what happens next.

  • Lil

    Just wanted you to know how much I’ve enjoyed your strip, and how much I admire your talent, but mostly I appreciate all the hard work that you must have to put into this strip (hours and hours behind the scene) to bring Wally and Osborne to life, each with their own characters. …not an easy task, for anybody. From experience, I learned that talent alone isn’t anything without all the effort, the motivation, and the vision it takes to put it into action. I apreciate those hours that you devote to bring a little humor to my day, and I’m sure others out there posting comments feel the same way…..right guys? Keep up the good work, Tyler,.

  • Eric

    Wow…. I totally should have seen that one coming… altho i see that some other people DID…

  • Sheena

    This has got to be the best juvie comic EVER!! I laughed for about 5 minutes non-stop! Go juvies!!!

  • Sheena

    P.S. Wally looks kind of weird in that first scene, and also; does he even know about the juvies?

  • izzieluv

    nice

    Thoose penguins are the cutest darn things, but where are there parents when they cause such trouble?
