Binging Vs. Patience 11/17/2017

by Joe

Stranger Things Season 2 flew by way too quickly :( I like what Netflix does in terms of releasing an entire season all at once, giving us control over pacing each episode but if you’re like me and you can’t wait for a cliffhanger to be resolved, seasons go very quickly. Now I don’t have Stranger Things in my life :(

Also, side note, STRANGER THINGS SPOILERS! >>>>> I thought it was a neat coincidence that Eleven/Jane and Eight/Kali have the same “experiment” numbers as Joe/Experiment #008 and Victor/Experiment #011 :D If the next kid is Six like Simon, I’ll wonder if one of the writers reads The Pocalypse haha

Enjoy Scene 72 – “Eviction Notice”!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook and Twitter for updates!

You can also support The Pocalypse by being a Patreon Patron! Thank you! :D

I also noticed the thing you noticed about the numbers! Damn, this comic sticks so much in my head. By the way, Joe… It’s “bingeing” — unless you’re using the Bing search engine. In which case there’s still something wrong. (ahhh, Bing-bashing jokes)

On a completely unrelated note: Anybody jumped on the new Firefox update? Seems most people are using Chrome, but Firefox got a huge performance boost and fixed all its memory hogging problems. Sexy UI redesign too. “Firefox Quantum” as they’re calling it, is like a dream. If you ever wanted to switch, the time is now.

Haha I noticed the coincidences, too! I was even going to ask if you had no part on the screenwriting of ST2 lol. Even the “dream world” eleven uses to detect other people, there’s a lot of things in common! But I guess it’s all just a honest coincidence hahaha

This fan is giving everyone freckles.

also, you shouldnt have posted this since now they know you know and if its true they have to take another number.

Robert on November 18, 2017 at 6:25 am

I can believe that Simon is a kid, but he really gives out a creepy pedo vibe. Like he is an adult that possessed the body of a child and use it to lure other ones in.
Does anyone remember which season/episode was were we could see all the 16 experiments with Bernie’s dad in a flashback? I don’t remember seeing a kid among them but maybe there was.

Dave on November 18, 2017 at 12:04 pm

@Dave Actually I think simon’s original body was abandoned or destroyed. when simon first appears, Joe asks him “You choose this body, haven’t you?” and Simon confirms. But now that you brought that up, I can’t remember which chapter/scene it appears, but I know the name of the scenes are “Project Sixteen, part 1 – 4” (if I’m not mistaken).

Tio Ba on November 18, 2017 at 1:03 pm

@Dave Sorry, the scenes names are actually “The Immortal Brain pt. 1 – 4”. Starts at chapter 7, scene 11 :D

@Dave Firstly, that is a weird impression to get… sounds like you’d get a pedo vibe from just about anything.
Secondly, my hunch is that Bernard Senior is behind these children. At least, the reason they exist. Perhaps they rebelled when their higher minds helped them to realize the folly of mankind. Or alternatively, Bernard is still there, and he is the one who initiated this plan. I was almost certain this was the case before Simon mentioned adults being the problem.

Been so long since I’ve seen this get updated frequently.

And I’m loving it.

@znaryx

Simon was a full grown adult and changed bodies like victor did, completely destroying the childs original mind as it seems. also, he collected the other kids and slaved them to his will as a sort of hive mind and indoctrinates them to his world view.

Robert on November 19, 2017 at 10:37 am

@Robert in other words, Simon is kind of a hypocrite – he had to destroy a child’s mind to initiate his plan

Tio Ba on November 20, 2017 at 1:56 pm

@Znayx – Literally the first time I mention something like this and I get a “you get this vibe from just about anything”? Reeeeally?
Okay, let me rephrase it: The though of Simon as an adult possessing a child’s body is creepy, regardless if he is a pedophile or not, and even more creepy if he is/was.
Is this better then?

Dave on November 20, 2017 at 7:05 pm

“SHIT HAS HIT THE FAN” best Doc phrase ever.

ShiftyOne on November 21, 2017 at 8:34 pm

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh man that was so freaking funny.. The moment Doc used his override was just perfect. Epic and hilarious in the perfect amounts. Thank you for that Joe. Story keeps twisting in interesting ways! Joe’s finally talking like Joe again which is funny enough by itself.. but the protocols part? That’ll stick with me forever hahaha

Luio on November 21, 2017 at 9:29 pm

I don’t get it. I looked back at “The Immortal Brain parts 1-4” and it even says simon is a “young lad”. Did he really “choose” the body he’s in? Because it looks, to me, the same as the one in those scenes o.o

Kiyuji on November 23, 2017 at 5:29 am

Scene will be up in a few hours! Sorry for the wait! Man, these Fridays are killer :D
