It's Day 2 of our Tenth Anniversary Spree, which means we're taking an in-depth look at the Roomies! strips from 1998!

For today's featured storyline, I've decided to zoom in on "Sexuality and the Modern Joyce", which exists mostly to feature Joyce wiggling her butt. The innocent Joyce has decided to claim her crush, Danny, once and for all, but instead gets her self esteem crushed by his roommate, Joe. Back when Joyce was a naive shut-in innocent, she was fun to tease. Her worldview was so fragile. These days, she's finally normalized. Less fun, admittedly, but more healthy.

Walky seems like the obvious self-insertion character in Roomies!/It's Walky!, but, truthfully, he's a red herring. It's really Joyce. Her evolution is my own. Don't tell anyone.
