AHHH! 01/15/2011

by Joe

It’s GO TIME! Wife’s going into labour and we’re off to the hospital! No scene today! I’m FREAKIN’ OUT! :D Wish us luck!

See you soon! :D

EDIT: Thank you so much for your well-wishes and advice, everyone! Our baby boy was born on January 15 :D We named him Nathaniel and he’s healthy and happy (except when he’s hungry)!

I have such awesome, awesome readers! Monday’s scene will be on time because you guys are so great and although my baby takes top priority, The Pocalypse needs attention, too :D

Awww…. Ok. We understand Joe~

Squizzel on January 15, 2011 at 4:26 am

Oh crap, good luck joe.

Kyle on January 15, 2011 at 4:35 am

This baby better be worth missing a day of The Pocalypse! Good luck Joe!! Tell the baby I say hi!

Timmy HarleQuin on January 15, 2011 at 6:03 am

I dislike children so i must say i don’t wish your child well, but i don’t hate women, so uhm, Safe Birth okay.

Liro Raeriyo on January 15, 2011 at 7:13 am

You can make it up to us by putting the kid’s name up for a vote on the forums! How’s that sound? Anyway, good luck!

Chilingsworth on January 15, 2011 at 7:16 am

Its ok Joe, a baby is more important then a comic.
Oh, and CONGRADULATIONS! your a dad now!

But we still expect Pocalypse. >.>

Dan on January 15, 2011 at 7:22 am

I support Chilingsworth’s idea :D Put the vote up soon!

Xanag on January 15, 2011 at 10:08 am

You took the time to update that to tell us?!?

Asparagus on January 15, 2011 at 10:42 am

Um, I think He just MIGHT want to name the child with his wife, not random strangers, but if that’s what floats your boat , Joe, feel free

Khalia M on January 15, 2011 at 10:59 am

Hope everything goes smoothly, Joe. Looking forward to an update about Powerfist Jr.

uncanny474 on January 15, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Best of luck, make sure you grab some painkillers. Your hand is going to be sore in the morning.

ArkaniusXII on January 15, 2011 at 12:50 pm

best of luck!

momo on January 15, 2011 at 1:12 pm

I nominate Abernathy. And if it’s a girl, Hannelore.

Toaster O' Vengeance on January 15, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Woah! Congrats man, spend as much time with your family. The comic is secondary. Congrats again. :D

Zylar on January 15, 2011 at 1:17 pm

maybe you should add your childs name as a new character. just saying >O<

mikelord356 on January 15, 2011 at 1:17 pm

how 2 form babby?

wally on January 15, 2011 at 1:24 pm

Best of luck Joe! Children are a blessing to be sure.

Sam on January 15, 2011 at 1:47 pm

you should name it Aragorn

tWiCHY on January 15, 2011 at 3:19 pm

good luck :D!

Simmimila on January 15, 2011 at 3:23 pm

Congrats!!
I hope it looks like your wife!!
(haha just kidding)
I’m sure it will be a beutiful baby

Eastar on January 15, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Congrats. Best of luck, My two daughters are the best thing that ever happened to me.

Brad on January 16, 2011 at 1:37 am

I’ll be short there: Best of luck, you will need to get your hand looked at afterwards and Aragorn is a wonderful name.

drakanor dream on January 16, 2011 at 2:24 am

yes a great baby it will be the new you call him joey.

mikelord356 on January 16, 2011 at 3:10 am

Congratulations!

Glasgow on January 16, 2011 at 3:53 am

Congratulations to you Joe! This will be one heptic night/week for you having to care for both child and wife, but I’m sure you will be a great Parent! Be sure to be gentle this time around, it’ll be a horribly-magical experience for your wife…

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on January 16, 2011 at 3:59 am

You should name the child Yarrpocalypse Cowboy/girl Minijoe/$wifename.

Eric the half a bee on January 16, 2011 at 8:06 am

So excited!

Hope everything goes/did go well!

Barb on January 16, 2011 at 11:30 am

@Eric the half a bee- please… no more name suggestions from you… At least about baby names…

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on January 16, 2011 at 1:29 pm

Congrats! Just a warning though,
most boys will give you a giant headache worrying over whatever shenanigans they act on next. (if me and my brothers are any goby)
And most girls will have their shenanigans done quietly while smiling pleasantly and should worry you more but don’t. (if my friends are any goby)
But you’ll love them dearly all the more so for the headaches (if keeping my little bro out of trouble is any goby!)

sh4d0wfl4re on January 16, 2011 at 5:21 pm

I have to agree with NeoPhantom. No more name suggestions for people… Although I do hope that the babys fine, and we still get updates ^^

Squizzel on January 16, 2011 at 7:06 pm

Congratulations. Good Luck Joe.

Give your kid(s) all the essential knowledge and training. Like spotting lies/manipulations AND lying/manipulating. It’s nearly impossible these days to get to success with honest, naive, and good-hearted zeal most parents are trying to induce in their children minds. This particular ability might prove priceless in life, and if you won’t teach it yourself, someone else will do. Tho, it’s a bit early to think about that kind of stuff >.< xD .

Yan on January 16, 2011 at 7:15 pm

Oh, and don’t forget to teach your kid to be an animator! We’ll need someone to carry on the webcomic if you were to every (shoke horror) quit.

Squizzel on January 16, 2011 at 9:21 pm

Congrats! My best to all of you, especially little Nathaniel!

Jim Ryan on January 16, 2011 at 10:20 pm

Congrats Joe ;-)

Hillbo on January 16, 2011 at 11:54 pm

Congrats Joe,
I wish you and the misses all the best with the little one :)

Valvar on January 17, 2011 at 1:56 am

Congrats Joe, and welcome to the world Nathaniel!

Eric the half a bee on January 17, 2011 at 2:39 am

Congratulations Joe.
Good luck raising him. You’re going to need it.
Maybe little Nathaniel going to be a character in future scenes?

Naughtius Maximus on January 17, 2011 at 4:43 am

A child is a sign of hope :)
Best wishes for the junior & you guys :)

dexen deVries on January 17, 2011 at 5:28 am

Wow:D my friends little sister just had her baby yesterday too:) his name is Hayden I think…

Curator on January 17, 2011 at 8:19 am

yes awesome that your makeing some new pocalypse but remeber the pocalypse is your first born but nathaniel is the new child. and nathaniel needs more attention.nurture the young you have to leave the older be.so we understand if theres wont be new pocalypse than it used to be. sincerely- mikelord356

mikelord356 on January 17, 2011 at 8:55 am

Wow, everyone seems to be having kids these days… Ah, well I wish you and your wife well. がんばてね!

erichan on January 17, 2011 at 1:31 pm

I’ve been here since the very beginning of the Pocalypse, and let me share some irony with you my friend :)

January 15th 1994 i was born. The same day as your baby boy, oh sweet irny! He and i can fight the Pocalypse as a team one day :3

Enzeru Kagai on January 17, 2011 at 2:28 pm

With this comment we reach 43 in this page! Let us reach 50 as a sign to support Joe!

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on January 17, 2011 at 9:56 pm

Goal of 50? Sure! Also, I was (almost completely) joking about the naming idea. :P

Chilingsworth on January 18, 2011 at 12:26 am

Boy or girl? I have a daughter, 15 years old. Time seems to fly as you look back on it so enjoy the moments as they happen.

Deris on January 18, 2011 at 12:27 am

Hey Joe, Congrats to you and your wife :)

A baby is such a beautiful thing ;)

I’m waiting for Monday scene with impatience.

Joe Kehr on January 18, 2011 at 1:35 am

I’d be surprised if Joe updates today. I mean, just a few days after the kid is born, and all. Also, this makes post 45 for our “50 posts to support Joe” challenge, right?

Chilingsworth on January 18, 2011 at 3:34 am

Congrats Joe on your new baby! Hope you become a good parent. And hope that your new son won’t be that much of a trouble maker when he grows up, I know I became one.

Geolancer, Guardian of the Light on January 18, 2011 at 4:06 am

@Chillingsworth- actually, it was 46, and THIS post I am making right now is 47

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on January 18, 2011 at 5:17 am

Congradulations! I’m almost as interested in Joe’s story as I am in the other joes story!

Josh on January 18, 2011 at 8:26 am

And this post is 48 ^.^

Xanag on January 18, 2011 at 8:44 am

Post #49!!!

Enzeru Kagai on January 18, 2011 at 12:58 pm

50! We support you Joe!
