Walkypedia Wiki

This is how the world ends: not with a bang, but with an inexplicable shout-out to '80s breakfast cereal advertising.

Soggies are archenemies of noted cereal mascot Cap'n Crunch. They may rule.

Spoiler warning!
Plot and/or ending details follow.


The Soggies were unleashed on the Walkyverse when Leslie Bean's spite-driven diversity hiring created a dimensional anomaly, in the process erasing the boundaries between fiction and non-fiction.

After drowning Space Batman and (presumably) Frank Miller, the Soggies' forces converged on the Shortpacked! toystore under the leadership of the Sogmaster. The ultimate fate of the Walkyverse remains unknown, though an earlier flash-forward showed the DeSantos walking near a Sogmaster statue some years after the Shortpacked! finale.


  • As explained on the old Shortpacked! LiveJournal, the phrase "Soggies May Rule" originated in a Spider-Man/Cap'n Crunch ad comic from the '80s. Upon reading it, David Willis became obsessed with the phrase and immediately set about putting it into a strip.
  • Earlier strips hinted that the Soggies quickly overwhelmed the Walkyverse's defenses because of a critical lack of Cap'n Crunch cereal.
