These Boots Are Made For Climbing

Many of you are familiar with Wally’s Swiss Alps styled climbing gear. Not only is it questionable where he got it in the first place but also how quickly he is able to change into it. That’s a handy talent, would definitely shave some time off getting ready in the morning.

The original art is for sale as well as the previous “Snooping” one. I started it a bit higher (it is a great piece) and will lower it if there is no immediate interest. Thanks again to everyone that has purchased original art, you are helping support the comic as well as getting some great one of a kind artwork from Wally & Osborne history.

I thought it would make some cool wallpaper too. Movie poster style. This wallpaper also reveals Wally’s full name. It was originally suppose to appear in a comic a long time ago where Osborne hollers his full name at him, but I forgot to include it. So here it is first appearing in some silly Wallpaper. It is mentioned in the book too, boy, I need to get on that book…

  • I’m ashamed of what I’m about to do


  • Tyler Martin


  • Daniel

    Wow…he looks evil at the last one. The cool kinda evil.

  • Jarekk

    I hope our icebear has some spiks under his shoes… it could be a little difficult to climb up without. πŸ˜‰

  • {GiGi}

    Woah, I don’t remember Wally being so serious!

  • ZyphBear

    Oh I so want that art….Can’t wait. Lets hope I can get the money scrounged up for it by the time you put it on sale!

  • Lee

    Lederhosen sind zurück! Haben Sie sehr Angst!


    HA HA HA HA HA LOL LOL LOL LOL wally has no Idea what hes dooing but hes stil vary determend!!!!!!!!!!! L!O!L!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TO FUNNY MUST BE THE FUNNYEST COMMIC YET ! LOL :mrgreen:

  • Joey

    This is alsome! THE RETURN OF THE GEEKY CLIMBING SUIT! I thought I would never get to see these again! Nobody better mess with wally when he has the icepick! This is golden man, just golden. I LOVE IT!!

  • Osborne A. Penguin

    cool Wally looks like hero! Sweden style owns!!! Hey Tyler u should start putting things in old comics in new comics like what you did here. Wally is just plain COOL!!! it looks like he’ll do anything to get Osbornes beek back!
    this comic isnt just funny, its like *gasp* wallys back in his suit!

  • Osborne A. Penguin

    hey guys im commenting so early because my school has early release! woohooo! we early release because of parent confrences

  • Joey

    Im commenting early, cause we got a 5-day weekend. We got out on Wednesday and we got Thursday Friday and Monday off! And I agree with Osborne A. Penguin because I like seeing old stuff

  • Shrew

    I really like the last frame, but I think it would be cooler if the “Oh yeah?” was in the previous panel, and the last one was just the “Step aside!” part. More punch that way. :)

  • Osborne A. Penguin

    i agree with shrew that would give it more “punch” if u made wally say “Oh yeah?” in the last panel. that will make the audience like “What will happen next?” or “will Wally beat up the skua and make him fly him up there?” ok that will never happen. πŸ˜‰ but ya theyll say “*gasp* Wally’s back!” and give them great suprise.

  • Penguin Boy

    I’M wearing a penguin suit right now!!!!! IT IS SO MUCH FUN TO TYPE WITH FLIPPERS!!! although it is a little harder. It’s true. I AM apenguin boy!!! YAAAAAAYYY! :) πŸ˜‰

  • Penguin Boy

    how many of YOU have penguin suits. I wanna know!! It’s so much fun being a penguin! πŸ˜‰

  • Osborne A. Penguin

    i know how to get “flippers”. just keep your fingers together and type with your middle finger. πŸ˜‰ im doing it right now! :smile: thanks for agreeing with me Joey. I like it when people agree with me. πŸ˜€

  • Osborne A. Penguin

    hey Tyler i did some math and found out that all the original art you have sold is a total of $440!!!! so you have a lot of money for On The Rocks! πŸ˜‰

  • Phizlo

    COOL. “Return of the the Ice-Climber” starring Wallace F. McGillyCutty. weird name to give to Wally. :) Wally is reminding me of the Terminator. Scary . . .

  • Cristina

    I like wally’s middle name

    I still wanna know how wally got to antarctica, is that in the book?

    I think we need more reoccuring characters, like the scroungy penguin.

    And FAN ART bring back the FAN ART!!!!!

  • BriGuy

    I’m exited about where the comic is going. I love the last panel. I didn’t think that we’d see Wally’s Alp suit again. ❗ Now were are actually getting somewhere. πŸ˜›

    Wally obviously didn’t read the sign in the second panel.

    Oh.. I also liked the wall paper Phizlo was talking about. It’s cool how it’s like a movie poster.

  • Cristina

    I went to e-mail tyler my fan art but it said there was an error. so i don’t know what’s wrong.

  • Phizlo

    The title reminds me of the song “These Boots are made for Walking” I saw on Shrek 2. 😎

  • Carlyneese!1!

    Yeah good stuff.

  • Zack

    I miss the scrawny penguin though. Tyler should bring him back like a billionaire because of all the rocks he go :p

    it would be funny if the scrawny penguin beat up the giant pet roll king. =P

  • Hannah

    hey people
    i love Wally’s full name.
    and his outfit. πŸ˜€

  • Phizlo

    You should make a shirt with the last panal on it that says, “Step Aside”. That be so cool. 😎 Wally would scare the heck out of everyone. :)

  • Sarah da penguin lver

    hehehe!!!! i heart Wally’s full name!!!!

  • Joey

    You should make this a shirt!! I WOULD TOTALLY BUY A SHIRT LIKE THIS!!!!! PLEASE MAKE ONE!

  • tux

    Well I’ve got to agree, that piece of original art really is worth $40, I’d even seriously consider it if I wasn’t penguin obsessive. I’d really like to see a great Osborne piece and perhaps a matching wallpaper (especially a 1680×1050 one too!).

    Keep up the great work :)

  • Vom

    What outfit will Wally wear next?

  • OrAnGe JuIcE

    OMG!! That is too flippin’ sweet! This is so funny. I wonder if the skua had the same reaction to the outfit as Osborn did…
    Another good comic by the way, is Hellscream. It’s really good, but it’ll never beat Wally’s silly antics, although Dick the Ninja comes really close. It’s at (yes it is a funny name) or, click on my name to get straight to the title page P.S some swearing, but nothing too extreme, just what you hear at the average high school lunch table…. which is actually is really depressing. In case your wondering: Why the heck is Orange Juice doing this @ almost 2 a.m.? I’ve been living off dayquil & nighquill for the past 3 weeks and it’s just now getting to me, so I can’t sleep.

  • OrAnGe JuIcE

    O.K… well it’s 1: 25 where I’m at so pay no attention to the time!!

  • Sev


    I don’t think Wally could have a more appropriate surname than that.

  • super penguin

    nice. can you make some backgrounds with the osbourne that has no beak tyler? well time for me to go so good bye

  • a guy

    woot. love it.

  • Penguin Guru

    This… Is… Great! No! Excelent! No! Awsome! No! How about Greawsolent! This is the best comic yet Tyler! It’s Greawsolent! Man I love Wally! He has a flight hat, a lederhosen, but no brain! So you finally got the suit Penguin Boy? That’s great!

  • Joey

    Please make a shirt of this!

  • Penguin Guru

    Wallace Fitzgerald McGillicutty? I never thought of Wally having that name. Is is German, because he’s wearing a lederhosen?

  • Penguin Guru

    Sorry I meant “Is it German” not “Is is German” Sorry!

  • Penguin Boy

    (siiiggghh) ahhh… Fresh out of school…. home alone… dressed in my penguin suit, drinking a big pepsi.. Can’t get any better than this… πŸ˜‰

    You’re right, Penguin Guru, Wally sure looks stupid in lederhosen :)

    Ha ha!!!

  • Athena

    Agh! you’re ruining it all! get on with the beak hunting would you? it’s been like… 5 comics? something like that. 5 comics of nothingness!

    I imagine you’re going to put 2 or 3 comics of wally trying to get up the cliff arn’t you? I don’t think he got up the last time he stuck the climbing suit on did he? He, tried to climb the rope…made osborne fall off the cliff… got halfway up on second try… fell off…walked up the path. i don’t supose in the 1 or so year period the petrel king moved onto the cliff they were climbing before did he?

    gah. dang wally’s bad climbing skills. *sniff*

  • Athena

    and in the last panel wally looks… like a grandpappy. the sort of “let’s climb Mount Everest after lunch and go fishing afterwards!” sort of polar bear grandpappy.

  • .K.A.Y.L.A. D.A. P.E.N.G.U.I.N. L.U.V.R.


  • Penguin Guru

    Heyb Tyler! You should make a comic of Wally climbing the cliff for like, 3 panels, and then on the 4th panel it shows the mountain and he’s like 2 ft. off the ground! Is the great petral king a pelican? I don’t know why, but petral king makes me think of a pelican!

  • penguinluvr20!!!!!

    ummmmm……….. hey! if u go 2 and go to on the rocks u will c wally in that same outfit! but only for today!!! (2/17/07) !!!

  • KooKoo
