There’s always room for Jell-O. And by Jell-O, I mean boobs.
Mystery person’s right hand looks like a Lego hand.
first time i read this i thought this actually was a lego man, and not the □□□□ □□□□□
When I first read it, I was annoyed enough to investigate! Then spend the next week steamrolling through archives.
lol, Wish i would of read all the Other comics before hand…. But at least now i get all the refrances on the 4th re-read.
So which head alien is this?
The one that wasn’t dead!
Very helpful there…
Isn’t this Anti Head Alien?
no anti head alien became head alien and then died rember
Uh. I thought they all died.
… does this have something to do with stuff that happened during the subscription version of Joyce and Walky? I do remember one of the strips having something about an alternate dimension.
Yes. Head Alien II, our friend in the shadows there, is from an alternate dimension. One where he’s not dead.
It’s Meta Head Alien.
Oh! NOW I get it!
Man, your comics need to come with a warning… “start with ‘Roomies!’ first for the full experience”..
And “Continuity is never forgotten. You will be assimilated.”
It IS you! Hi, Dexter!
LOL i love his first lines here. because its aimed at the audience. GO READ ROOMIES!/ITS WALKY!
Is it just me, or do panels two and three make no sense from an in-universe perspective?
No, cause this is a sequel to It’s Walky. Only DoA is a separate continuity.
No, I mean him talking about people being annoyed by his presence and wondering if he’s supposed to be important, and leaving when they figure it requires prior knowledge.
From our perspective, it makes perfect sense. Readers of Shortpacked! might be annoyed and leave. But in-universe customers would 1) not see him in the stockroom and 2) would either assume he’s a kid in a costume and ignore him or call the police, depending on said customer’s awareness of the War. That’s what I meant.
He does say “people out there” which can be construed as either us the readers or the customers outside the stockroom (more likely both). The wording is very well chosen.
Plus Head Alien II is a dimension traveler, so he could have feasibly visited our corner of the multi-verse. I see him popping in on Willis’ bedroom and the awkward conversation that would ensue.
Yep because if you saw an employee talking to some shorty in a costume calling him Head Alien, you would be suspicious too and plus, for the readers who never read It’s Walky, they can read and just shrug him off because he is only slightly important here. I read DoA first than this, I got curious and that’s why I read the others but I didn’t have to.
Okay, I really need to re-read It’s Walky, I haven’t read it since it finished it’s run about 7 years ago or so.
No it cannot be! Head Alien II…. This universe is now doomed to utter oblivion just like the others.
I gotta say in my opinion the balance of Drama and Comedy was something I loved in It’s Walky too me it show’s how good a writer is when you can laugh at silly poop joke’s one minute and feel upset for them the next and it still feel’s like it belongs in the same series.
That’s so true. When I first read this I was all like “Is this guy supposed to be important? The need for an answer annoys me, but not enough to make me investigate. I shall instead go to Wal*mart!”
“Kid, in that shirt you may as well be a boy.”
I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about. When I worked at Circuit City the women’s uniform shirts were… downright flattering. I liked many aspects of my job.
Especially the cute blonde who never wore a bra and was always hurrying everywhere, more often than not jogging across the store.
What? You’re all just as big perverts as I am
I wonder if Head Alien II is based on Galvatron II?
I had to re-read the strip because I didn’t know Head Alien was talking to us, the readers.
Wow, it’s been 6 years since the Head Alien was predicting the imminent demise of the strip.
I swear Willis wrote this with years of anticipation. It all falls into place, it all makes a lot more sense when you read the first comics. It all reveals little by little. So, according to the Alien’s predictions they will eventually end up in wall mart.
Weird, he predicted fan reaction to Final Crisis two years early.
Don’t worry Robin, I will always stay for your Pert Jugs.
