1[[quoteright:350:]]˛[[caption-width-right:350:[[ Crisis on Infinite Walkyverses]]]]˛˛The Walkyverse is the setting of four {{webcomic|s}} series by David Willis: ˛˛* ''[[ Roomies!]]'', ''[[ It's Walky!]]'', and ''[[ Joyce and Walky!]]'', which [[Webcomic/RoomiesItsWalkyJoyceAndWalky share a page due to the interconnected nature of their narratives]], and˛* ''[[ Shortpacked!]]'' ([[Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}} page here]]), a spin-off comic from ''It's Walky!'' which is largely self-contained.˛˛Outside the Walkyverse is the Dumbiverse, containing only ''[[ Dumbing of Age]]'' ([[Webcomic/DumbingOfAge page here]]), an UltimateUniverse AlternateContinuity combining characters and elements from all four (but none of the science fiction elements so far). ˛˛The Walkyverse also includes (de facto at any rate) a number of other comics largely written by friends of Willis, including (but not necessarily limited to) ''Webcomic/{{Melonpool}}'', ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'', ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'', ''Webcomic/QueenOfWands'', ''Webcomic/GirlsWithSlingshots'', ''Webcomic/AllNewIssues'', ''Webcomic/{{Multiplex}}'', ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'', ''Webcomic/DieselSweeties'', ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'', and ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound''.˛˛The Walkyverse officially ended with the final ''Shortpacked!'' strip on January 17, 2015, and the final strips of ''Joyce and Walky!'' were uploaded on May 17, 2015. A series about Joyce and Walky's pregnancy, ''[[ It's Pregnancy!]]'', ran from June to December 2015.˛˛----˛˛!!Tropes that apply to the Walkyverse as a whole:˛˛* AuthorAvatar: Every series has one:˛** Danny Wilcox in ''Roomies!'' started the trend, intentionally sharing many traits with Willis. By his own admission, however, Joyce grew into a more fitting avatar. ˛** Walky from ''It's Walky!'' was more overt, again sharing initials with Willis but also a first name and nickname, car, and other traits. ˛** ''Shortpacked!'' took it to the next level, with two avatars: one being a fictionalized version of himself, and the other being Ethan. And in-universe, they're rivals in the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' fandom.˛** ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'', while an [[AlternateUniverse AU]], has Joyce as his avatar, due to their shared [[TheFundamentalist style of religious upbringing]].˛* CerebusSyndrome: Each comic got DarkerAndEdgier after starting off light-hearted and episodic.
