Here’s Billie’s real first appearance.  I didn’t expect her to become a real character.  Her entire existence at this point was grown out of a throw-away gag in a story I wrote in high school.  Walky was having an argument with Big Boss and brought up his friend Billie to prove some dumb point about girls with names that sound like boy names.

So I put her in this strip as crowdfiller to please myself, as I so often do.  I figgered she knew Walky, since that was the only “established” thing about her (in my brain and no where else).  And then I made up two other people on the spot.

Anyway, she becomes really really important.
