Possible Slowdown Ahead! 09/25/2012

by Joe

Chapter 7 is in the books! Thank you all for voting for your favourite chapter summary format! I may think of something new for the next summary :D

As Joe said in the scene, things may slow down on the comic end as I try to meet deadlines for TPD2, which we want to complete by December (fingers crossed!). If I don’t post a scene at a normal time, please understand that it is most likely because of TPD2 work :D

We’ll see how much I can handle and how demanding Chapter 8 will be! I hope you’re looking forward to it as much as I am :D

Enjoy Chapter 7’s Summary – “Not Even Sam Could Do This”!

I also need to know what size your browser is when you visit The Pocalypse for future reference. We’re currently working on something that will require a browser so this information is very important. Please visit this page to let me know what your browser size is. Thank you so much! This information will make your future The Pocalypse experience even better! :D

Who can you find in the Hammerston suburbs? Vote to see! Please vote for The Pocalypse here everyday! (Powerfist, Greybane, Rosa, Cross, Stinger, Jake, Obliteration, and Doc are in this one!) I’m going to try coming up with a new incentive every update (or every few updates) :D Thank you for voting!

wow, very good summary, i prefered sam’s creations but whatever, one question, why can’t sam use his powers?

Dr.krillin on September 25, 2012 at 7:34 pm

I love Joe and his board :D

Zach on September 25, 2012 at 7:51 pm

Joe created 3 un-cubed beings for the first time in the dream world!
PlantKing is spherical
Nick and Greybane are normal
Yay! His ability is growing!

NeoWarrior on September 25, 2012 at 8:13 pm

I think Sam was trying to get Joe to unlock his powers himself (as that would grant him supernatural strength, speed, armor and healing as well as mind-crafting) by feigning the inability to mind craft.

r2d2go on September 25, 2012 at 8:28 pm

Typo with “Joe, you we’re the eighth.” we’re should be were, and so on.

I like how Joe returns back to his board at the end. It’s perfect.

Taioko on September 25, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Whock…. Whock…. Whock… I’m jealous of joe. I want a board as nice as his.

@Joe Maybe a plant summery would be interesting, considering I figure that the next Chapter will involve them a lot.

The Khan on September 26, 2012 at 2:01 am

Bonjour M. Joe, it has taken several hours,as it is currently 2.10am here, but I have finally caught up to your story line
You are truly an incredibly gifted individual……..
Now I go to bed, my wife, she will be wondering where her husband has gone…………

Rovage St Laurent on September 26, 2012 at 2:13 am

The board whackin’ Joe is back babeh! XD

Genome Robi on September 26, 2012 at 2:29 am

Uhhh,… What about the guys back in New Hammerston? It’s been so long since what we last knew about them.

Damian Dante on September 26, 2012 at 3:24 am

Great summary Joe! I can’t wait for the next update. Good luck!

Irene on September 26, 2012 at 5:09 am

BTW what happened to Mr. Comedy of the original summaries? This is the second summary he misses no? The previous one was done by a machinoid if memory serves…

NeoWarrior on September 26, 2012 at 9:18 am

@Taioko – Thanks for the catch! Fixed! :D

Joe on September 26, 2012 at 11:39 am

Joe: *whack**whack**whack**whack**whack**whack*
Sam: Stop it!!!

Timstro59 on September 26, 2012 at 12:15 pm

I didnt like this summary,it felt too long and abit boring and there was 2 much happening on the screen while the text was on,i found myself looking up and down constantly to make sure i didnt miss anything. Bring back that machine thingy or make a new concept,maybe make it like a side scroller where you walk to sections of each scene,you can control a character of your choice and when you get to the next slate or stage or whatever the character summarises it up for you,that way you can go at your own pace and control your favourite character at the same time?

Wayne Mangham on September 26, 2012 at 12:37 pm

I thought the visual aids were an enhancement, rather than a detriment. It allowed for a lot more than the 4 characters to be shown that the talking heads panel with the comedian generally allowed, and added some humor that was fairly bad puns (I appreciate puns, but sometimes they just hurt). Can’t think of anything that was missed, awesome work Joe

Some Guy on September 26, 2012 at 1:31 pm

@ Dr krillin Maybe the mutants mind isn’t powerful enough to allow sam to use them. It could be that its mind was just powerful enough for sam to possess

shalidar13 on September 26, 2012 at 2:04 pm

@shalidar13 very good explanation, but since i remember the mutants mind was hell of a mind because it was disrupted by the scientific guy, so it should allow him to at least use some of his powers, or am i wrong?

Dr.krillin on September 26, 2012 at 4:17 pm

“Subdued into submission.”

bobbaganoosh on September 26, 2012 at 8:01 pm

@Dr. krillin Who said he can’t?

Pseudonym_ on September 26, 2012 at 11:27 pm

I prefer the Conan end of chapter wrap ups better. They had a funny way of explaining things that happened and things to come in a not so serious time saving way. This summary, however, was very detailed and demonstrated the authors growing skills very well.

shadowmonkey71 on September 27, 2012 at 1:26 am

i’ve been away for so long and so much has happend finally caught up again and i really cant wait for the nect chapter to come out.
man it’s good to read this again. really missed joe, bernie,rosa and jess

keep up the great work ;)

NekoGuy on September 27, 2012 at 1:47 pm

@ Dr krillin that’s a very good point. Another reason might be that sam wants joe to release his powers and so isn’t using his to force joe into releasing them

shalidar13 on September 27, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Joe sure loves his board. I’m lookin forward to the next chapter very much. One thing though, I’m quite sure it’s “gist” and not “jist”. Good luck with TPD2 project.

Limepire on September 27, 2012 at 9:18 pm

@Limepire – You’re right! Thanks for the catch :D

Joe on September 27, 2012 at 9:44 pm

I loved it, beautiful work. Sadly I am up to date now, so I have to wait like the rest of us mortals. Keep them coming.

MackanGyver on September 28, 2012 at 3:17 am

After about 4 monts of inactivity, without seeing the pocalypse I finnaly catched up! Excelent work Author Joe, you have quite a bright mind.
NOW GIVE ME MORE EPISODES xD (jk)

Crazus on September 28, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Shouldn’t that say that Joe AND Bernie leave Jess’s group? And why isn’t the ball on that spider thingy blocky like all the other blockreations (see what I did there?) that Joe has made? And BLOCK SCRUFFLEBECK IS SO CUTE!! :3

illeatyourself on September 29, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I just realized Sam’s recreation isn’t blocky! O_O

illeatyourself on September 29, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Sorry I meant the recreation OF HIM isn’t blocky. XD

illeatyourself on September 29, 2012 at 7:43 pm

LOL! He really loves that board! BTW, why not make some minecraft skins for each of the characters? I already started trying to make one for Powerfist, but I can’t decide if I want it to look like Powerfist or Blocky Powerfist. XD

illeatyourself on September 29, 2012 at 7:49 pm

@ illeatyourself i think you should do Blocky powerfist as he is like minecraft: all blocks no circles

shalidar13 on September 30, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I made a test Powerfist for myself but can’t help but think it looks off. The black collar above the green vest doesn’t translate well. It ended up with it looking like Joe has a green moose head pattern on his clothes. Overall I am happy with it though, seeing as it is my first skin.

bobsickle on October 2, 2012 at 1:48 pm

New here! Love the comic, love the story – the plots arcs nicely! Very inspired.
I honestly found the game first. Great story though!

John Wilkinson on October 3, 2012 at 2:04 am

OK… Now We have seen:
– Humans: Dream Realm.
– Vampires: Mind Realm.
– Machines: Communications Interface.
– Plants: Neuro-synoptic link.
– Joe: Joe’s Craftmind World.
– Zombies: – UNKNOWN – (Maybe a ghostly/death place? ombies can think enought to have their OEM Mind Realm?).
– Mutants: – UNKNOWN – (Maybe a chaotic & distorted versiĆ³n of Dream Realm?).

Yoran Stern on October 4, 2012 at 7:32 am

I hate Android autocorrector…

Yoran Stern on October 4, 2012 at 7:34 am

“ombies” -> Zombies
“OEM” -> own

(We need a “posts editor” or something…)

Yoran Stern on October 4, 2012 at 7:39 am

@Yoran Stern: I dunno, I like the idea of Original Equipment Manufacturer mental realm, zompires use the vampire Mind Realm after all

MrBester on October 4, 2012 at 9:03 am

Oh Joe, you and you’re board XD!
