Shifting Gears! 03/07/2013

by Joe

Thank you all for waiting so long for this one! :D

Please expect and understand that future scenes will take just as long or even longer to produce and upload. Please follow me on Facebook, Twitter and RSS to stay updated on when I make new posts! :D

Now that I’m fully shifting gears to Green Pixel’s game art, I will be posting updates here about our games’ progress (ie. Dr. Vile and TPD2). I want to get these projects done so you guys can finally play them! :D

Also, for anyone who’s worried about The Pocalypse ending: stop worrying! :D The Pocalypse will not end until the story is over. Yes, updates will be slow but I don’t plan on stopping. On the contrary, I have some pretty ambitious plans for The Pocalypse and I expect to fulfill those plans, even if they take years to do :D As Confucius said, “It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop.” Great words to work by :D

Enjoy Scene 16 – “Under Attack”!

Again, thank you all so much for sticking by The Pocalypse and I’ll work as hard as I can to make all your waiting worth it :D

Vote to see all the enemies that you’ll be facing in TPD2! Good luck to us humans! :D Please vote for The Pocalypse here everyday! Thank you for voting!

Click to show/hide comments.

Well, that was well worth the wait. And once again, you prove you can do absolutely masterful cliffhangers.

Some Guy on March 7, 2013 at 11:40 pm

:) excited . :)

LOR on March 7, 2013 at 11:45 pm

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! NOT MORE WAITING! THIS IS KILLING ME!

zach on March 7, 2013 at 11:49 pm

HAHA .. waited long too haven’t you zach? :D

LOR on March 7, 2013 at 11:51 pm

made those comments when i havent read the comic yet.
now that i’ve read it .. all i could say was oh my God. pretty much like when i saw Manny Pacquiao fell in his face and just lied there flat. OH MY ..

LOR on March 8, 2013 at 12:06 am

AAAAAARGH Joe!

man! you can’t keep doing this to us ):

Tio Ba on March 8, 2013 at 12:29 am

BUT IT IS INDEED A FUCKIN AWESOME SCENE! Keep up the good work man!

Tio Ba on March 8, 2013 at 12:29 am

You must enjoy torturing us all with suspense, lol. Its killing me, they better meet finally in the next episode… :p

Laserhead on March 8, 2013 at 3:10 am

WAAAH DARNIT Y U SO CRUEL AUTHOR JOE!? *will wait patiently for next eppie*

Micaela on March 8, 2013 at 3:34 am

loading…
loading…
System checks : Brain, fully operational.

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING MEEEEEEEEEEEEE D:

Khayne on March 8, 2013 at 5:27 am

Same wait or longer?! Jesus Christ. Welp, I guess I will check every month or so then.

bobsickle on March 8, 2013 at 6:02 am

Like the Carlsberg ad using footage from “Ice Cold In Alex”: Worth the wait

MrBester on March 8, 2013 at 9:30 am

This…. will go bad.

robert on March 8, 2013 at 10:30 am

HOLY SHIT THAT WAS SO BADASSS worth the wait

Nomad on March 8, 2013 at 10:43 am

Holy cow! Awesome episode! The real threat wasn’t the mutant, the vampire, or the plant. It was Joe!

Ptolemy on March 8, 2013 at 10:54 am

It was so long too… thank you Author Joe for rewarding our (admittedly thin) patience with a great scene. Definitely worth the wait.

Lil'T on March 8, 2013 at 11:12 am

I liked the human explosion part.

Erik on March 8, 2013 at 12:41 pm

I need to see BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.

Drakhat on March 8, 2013 at 1:17 pm

You are teasing us too much!!!!!!!!!!!!
Still good scene love the suspense.

Bliss on March 8, 2013 at 2:39 pm

God Dammit Joe, you son of a bitch. You did it again.
Just kidding. Keep up the fantastic work, even if it does take like a month to come out!

HollowVergil on March 8, 2013 at 3:58 pm

Confucius said, “It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop,” but didn’t he also maintain a negative view of women in saying that women have no dignity and less human rights than men and are supposed to be at home, fulfilling the stereotypical roles of wife and mother.

Frustrated on March 8, 2013 at 4:04 pm

wait a moment, until the story ends? you better never end this story, it has so much potential to turn into separatte stories and the story of a whole world!

Dr.krillin on March 8, 2013 at 4:09 pm

It’s been sometime since I commented on a scene. All I can say is: WOW! This was a great scene and it was well worth the wait. Now that Victor is out…crap…..of course, now I’m wondering how they’ll stop him. I wonder if the Plants will help.

Perseus on March 8, 2013 at 4:55 pm

Okay author Joe we get it you’ve mastered the art of the cliffhanger. Awesome scene truly worth the wait.

Jermell Williams on March 8, 2013 at 6:08 pm

I feel bad for the soldiers…

Kaboom456 on March 8, 2013 at 6:27 pm

*browtwitch* what is it with you and cliffhangers?! i swear if you let us wait that long AGAIN (or make the next scene entirely about cross+that ship) i´ll find out where you live and….feed you to my plant! *pants* ok, sorry, but i´m getting frustrated here. i tried to distract myself with playing blockhopper, but with my old keyboard with its dragging keys its damn near impossible aka VERY frustrating…oh well, just date up, will ya?

Peya Luna on March 8, 2013 at 8:30 pm

BEAUTIFUL!
We had the Inner Joe:Outer Joe / Victor:Joe dynamic BACKWARDS!
Either the true ‘joe’ is Victor (it was a codename)
-or-
‘Victor’s and ‘Joe’s alignments have been misunderstood and are reverse what the scientists thought
else
Joe has yet another plot twist with the Elders or some such we have yet to connect to this cliffhanger fest
^,_,*

sh4d0wfl4re on March 8, 2013 at 11:19 pm

How many stock soldiers are there in this place? It seemed like they had a small town (beginning), then small colony (after vamp/zombie attack that took some soldiers), then merely interchangeable stock soldiers…how many soldiers are left- after this seemingly wipe-out of the last remaining ones?

shadowmonkey71 on March 9, 2013 at 1:54 am

Please, can you please please please pleaseeeeeeeeeeee update the scene as soon as possible?? :C

Darine on March 9, 2013 at 5:43 am

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrlgh so… much… frigging… CLIFFHANGEEEEER…

Surin on March 9, 2013 at 9:41 am

Okay Joe that is not cool! Not author Joe but Victor or whoever he is! That guy has gone nuts! Annhika might be a key to control maybe still he almost harmed a little kid! Thats a new low!

sykes on March 9, 2013 at 9:48 am

I was missing you’r Cliff hangers autor Joe n.n

PS: If you continue doing The Pocalipse I dont mind waiting at all n.n

Acrontus on March 9, 2013 at 3:45 pm

Hey AJ(author joe), i think the next Pocalypse game should be a playable version of the story or some part of it. Think about it, playing as Joe, Bernie, Jess, or all of them with different missions and everything!

Erik on March 9, 2013 at 6:31 pm

HOW DO YOU DO THIS? This stuff is incredible. What program are you using besides flash?

Xani on March 9, 2013 at 7:08 pm

…excitement followed by plot followed by drama followed by surprise followed by cliffhanger…

this is worth the wait and possibly the most exemplar scene so far!

NeoWarrior on March 9, 2013 at 8:54 pm

FINALYYYYYYYY!

r2d2go on March 9, 2013 at 11:56 pm

great scene joe, i was just coming up with voices for the charecters and i think it seems awesome if sam has a russian accent.

mouseman on March 11, 2013 at 12:49 am

I think I have dies [pinches arm] owwweee
Nope this is real

. on March 11, 2013 at 11:30 am

Joe… please… just make them meet T_T

PD: love ya

biperfuture on March 11, 2013 at 6:08 pm

Well, i saw TP again. It was like… 12 hours or 18 hours(in 2 days), don’t know. Now i understand really MORE than before.

Erik on March 11, 2013 at 6:16 pm

Well that was pretty damn good :D

Grant on March 12, 2013 at 5:23 am

haven’t commented i n a long time.as with previous scene’s, this is really showing joe’s power, easily beating a vampire who took down an elder, all in all this is pretty tense, also this is the first time i really pay attention to the more warped serious soundtrack you have added.

dragonborn156 on March 12, 2013 at 4:22 pm

Oh god. I had another idea. Why not a survival pocalypse game? Imagine, you are a survivor in no colony, and the game is all about that, surviving, scavenging, finding a good place to stay, or being a nomad. Like Minecraft or Don’t Starve, but pocalypse monsters!

Erik on March 12, 2013 at 8:12 pm

Joe should just die. He’s not worth it. No matter what happens he’s a douche and will kill everything and anything. From day one i haven’t liked him, and now i completely admit that even meeting his sister is pointless. Please die joe.

Nice episode.

Marduk on March 13, 2013 at 12:42 pm

@ Erik that would be pretty neat

Marduk on March 13, 2013 at 12:44 pm

Am I the only one that was yelled: “NO MOTHERFUCKER!” at the end? Because these cliffhangers will surely kill me.

Reina on March 13, 2013 at 9:26 pm

@Marduk how could you say that about Joe he is the main character and the funniest on in the web comic and his sister is not pointless she is a member of the colony and will help Joe concentrate his powers

keiss on March 13, 2013 at 9:31 pm

@keiss: In case you haven’t noticed, Joe will KILL THE ENTIRE COLONY. That is, unless they can control him. If they can, great. If they can’t, they should have killed them when they could have because with technology, Sam, plants and greybane they can stay pretty safe.

r2d2go on March 14, 2013 at 12:48 am

RRRRRRRRGH! DAMN IT JOE! WHY DO LEAVE US LIKE THIS!? JUST MAKE THEM MEET!!!

Knuckle Joe on March 14, 2013 at 10:40 am

Holy frick that was intense! Joe really seemed evil in this one, and it’s not every day I get that feeling from a villain! I especially loved the part where he finished counting down and killed the soldiers, because it was both creative and awesome. Can’t wait for the next one!

I'll Eat Yourself on March 14, 2013 at 6:27 pm

I don’t know how many time5 you have heard thi5, but thi5 i5 the be5t thing ever, and I don’t mean thi5 update, I mean the pocalyp5e. Thi5 web comic i5 an amazing piece of work and I hope that the thing5 you do with it will be 5hared with the world and that a5 many people a5 po55ible will ob5erve thi5 unrivaled piece of work. I don’t think that anyone ha5 ever put thi5 much work into a 5ingle web comic(other than Andrew Hu55ie)and hone5tly, you are up there with him. I cannot wait for the next update of thi5 and hope thi5 goe5 on for a long time.

For those to lazy to translate, luca here said “why not upload more chapters, I’m dying of boredom, honestly luca”

Pseudonym_ on March 18, 2013 at 11:40 pm

I think sincerely would be a more accurate translation for the end.

@Wayne Mangham- recien estoy en segundo año de ingles

luca on March 20, 2013 at 7:19 pm

@Luca I’m just in 2nd year english.

I was thinking about translating the comic, but i have to learn swf editing

Erik on March 20, 2013 at 8:13 pm

Luca-> Joe esta teniendo dificultad en dar tiempo a este sitio ahora que tiene un nuevo trabajo. Si bien estamos felices por el, esto resulta en que el tardará mucho más tiempo de lo usual en poner nuevos episodios. Lo mejor que podemos hacer es ser pacientes. Respecto a traducir los episodios a otros idiomas (español), a menos que Joe consiga alguien que traduzca todos los dialogos en todos los episodios y que sepa suficiente del programa que el usa para reemplazar los dialogos, y que sea de confiar, dudo mucho que Joe tenga el tiempo para realizarlo.

NeoWarrior on March 20, 2013 at 11:43 pm

@Wayne Mangham Don’t be one of those “Proud to be an American” type of people. English is one of the HARDEST languages known. Don’t think other races are “primitive” or “dumb” Just because they don’t know YOUR language.

JustCallMeBlaze on March 21, 2013 at 6:59 am

ME. ME TRANSLATING THE COMIC. “but i have to learn swf editing” means ME TRANSLATING THE COMIC. I will not try to learn, though. I decided it, i have better things to do with my time.

Erik on March 21, 2013 at 10:00 pm

@JustCallMeBlaze you sir are wrong, English is the complete opposite of hard. Try learning Finnish or Hungarian or Croatian/Serbian. Their grammars are a bitch (pardon my French). The only thing hard about English is proper spelling and that can be learned without too much effort.

RandomBloke on March 22, 2013 at 8:07 am

Proud to be american,thats insulting on so many levels lol im from the UK and i hate americans,but its funny you say that as they butcher the english language worse than anyone else.

Wayne Mangham on March 22, 2013 at 8:24 am

@Wayne Mangham: Keep your opinions to yourself, especially if they insult others. You’re being a real jerk.

NeoWarrior on March 23, 2013 at 12:25 am

“language is language

So unless we think like you, shut up. Nice hypocrisy bro.

D on March 23, 2013 at 3:21 am

I agree, you are very close-minded in your open-mindedness.

bobsickle on March 23, 2013 at 6:33 am

lol
If you prefer to hear me write for quite some time about how you should show your opinion if it’s equal to all members of a party involved and only if the result is positive, ask. I only wrote that statement to keep these people from going at each other’s throats for a reason as ridiculous as the one they chose. Is it hypocritical to wish for some sort of peace rather than a meaningless debate over “preference” of all things?

NeoWarrior on March 23, 2013 at 8:17 am

@neowarrior no me molesta el idioma, de hecho me ayuda mucho a aprender ingles, pero a veces me canso de no entender muchos terminos que dicen, cinceramente luca.

luca on March 23, 2013 at 6:34 pm

@luca-> en tal caso es vital preguntar a aquellos que pueden traducir el idioma con mayor facilidad. Aqui hay bastantes listos para ayudarte de ser necesario y aprender idiomas puede resultar entretenido. Personalmente, el español es mi idioma natal, pero el ingles se me da con identica facilidad. Claro esta, a veces desearía que en lugar de inglés hubiese aprendido japonés… (no es un insulto al idioma inglés, sino una observación de que muchas cosas permanecen en Japón y nunca son traducidas a ningún otro idioma).

En resumen: Pregunta y todas tus dudas se aclararan, excepto el significado de la vida que todavía está bajo proceso de decodificación… :P

NeoWarrior on March 24, 2013 at 1:36 am

Wow, what a good way of make some time for Joe…

Erik on March 24, 2013 at 9:14 am

Lol some time without the comic and every turns into a scientist that knows everything about nothing,Joe needs to make more comics to keep us stupid and sane…

NeoWarrior on March 25, 2013 at 2:31 pm

And the month goes by…

AlaneosFotega on March 26, 2013 at 1:37 am

reasons why english is hard to learn
-Unusual spelling system -subtle word ordering -word stressing -irregular conjugation of words
-different forms of synonyms

im not saying english is the hardest language, but it is certainly confusing for those that did not grow up learning it
-@Wayne Mangham: i would have to argue that we Americans don’t butcher the english language and what you call that is actually our different dialects due to people from many cultural backgrounds immigrating to America and learning english while keeping some of their old language

skip on March 26, 2013 at 2:04 am

I really ought to learn Spanish as it doesn’t seem too hard: I got the gist of NeoWarrior’s posts without knowing a single verb conjugation…

Or maybe I’ll just get on with learning Dutch (for fun). That has its own English-style annoying pronunciation rules.

MrBester on March 26, 2013 at 9:50 am

Awesome scene Joe!

PS: Hi~ I just wanted to say that, even though you tend to go behind schedule, I still love your flash comics, and I’m not mad that you are almost a month behind. (Well, okay, I admit I am a bit impatient right now D-:<)

However, I think you should try to satisfy your audiences, shouldn't you? C:

NeoWarrior on March 31, 2013 at 2:00 am

I don’t understand why are so many complaining about the comic being “late”. Everybody knows that he has a new job now, one that requires more time from him than the pocalypse does. And honestly, I think Joe has more important stuff to care about other than you complainers needs. The site is still up, so even though he decided to cancel the comic he would probably leave a note here.

Kulta on March 31, 2013 at 3:52 am

If it was me i would delay the comic by a day every time somebody complained,kids with internet = impatience,been like this ever since the internet became more accessible in the late 90s.

Wayne Mangham on March 31, 2013 at 8:28 am

I agree, some people should calm down, get out and get a breath of fresh air before posting. Joe is updating The Pocalypse once a month or every two months, so? If you can be patient you’ll eventually see a new scene, if you can’t then it’s your problem. It’s not like Joe got lazy or ran out of ideas or is trolling everyone on purpose: his life is simply a lot busier than it used to be, and you should be grateful that he’s still willing to slowly work on new scenes on his little spare time. Most comic authors in his situation would have just closed the site and left the story unfinished. And the more people attack him verbally for the lack of updates, the more you’ll just make him wonder why he’s still doing this, considering he earns little by keeping this webcomic on track. I just hope he’ll continue ignoring the stupid comments and remember there are also lots of faithful readers who can wait, no matter how long it takes to see each new scene.

Francesco on March 31, 2013 at 8:37 am

considering most people were used to an update or two a week, i can see how everyone is impatient but you guys just need to wait.

mouseman on March 31, 2013 at 10:13 pm

I stopped being impatient, now i just don’t care about it.

Erik on April 1, 2013 at 12:04 am

Sooo… Anybody wanna play chess?

Batman on April 1, 2013 at 2:39 am

I’ll always care. This is my favorite webcomic. I don’t know when Joe will update next, but I still plan on being around to see it. I have to agree though, this is a bit too long. It’s already been a month, and Joe normally at least drops by to say hi, we’ve hardly heard anything from him in that time.

To pass the time, I’m kinda thinking about doing an RP. Anyone else interested?

BloodWolf7 on April 1, 2013 at 10:55 am

@BloodWolf I mean i don’t care if he uploads or not, but i didn’t stop watching the comic.
And, what is a RP?

Erik on April 1, 2013 at 4:23 pm

@Erik Role Play

OrdinalChaos on April 1, 2013 at 7:23 pm

@Erik
RolePlay within the forums

NeoWarrior on April 2, 2013 at 6:03 am

maybe, what kind of RP?

mouseman on April 2, 2013 at 8:05 am

as in what would it be about

mouseman on April 2, 2013 at 8:05 am

last I checked, an apocalyptic world where you determine your character and background, as well as possible powers then go on missions

NeoWarrior on April 2, 2013 at 8:33 pm

Sorry for not checking in, everyone! :D Yup, I’m still around and I’m still checking the site everyday! Thank you for your continued patience! Unfortunately, I haven’t found time to work on the next scene yet :( And, I agree with RP-ing in the forums! If you guys start a The Pocalypse-related RP, I may get some ideas from it! :D

Joe on April 2, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Joe, we all miss you. But, those of us with regular lives, read, job holders and college students, we know how hectic life can get. Those of us that really want to see the next scene, and lets face it, most people who watch the entire comic want to see how it continues, will wait around. Do what you have to, but please don’t make us wait until June. :)

Blackmoon845 on April 2, 2013 at 10:26 pm

Hey Joe. Out of curiosity, how far are we in the storyline right now? How many chapters are you planning to include in the remainder of the comic?

Grant on April 3, 2013 at 12:59 am

Crossover with The Walking Dead!!!!!!!!

DAAAAAAANM!! So Victor got Joe… well the world might end just because of him…

Hey, Author Joe, just curious but couldn’t Victor be beaten if Sam and Rosa attacked with their minds? Also I think Joe might beat Victor if Annika is involved… so the real question (to everyone but the creators…sorry) Is who will have the body? Joe or Victor?

hiei on April 3, 2013 at 6:34 pm

“Crossover with The Walking Dead!!!!!!!!”
No….. Please no….. Ten thousand times I say please no…..

D on April 4, 2013 at 1:08 am

@hiei I think the real question is who is the original bodies owner and if it is joes body how did victor get in and vice versa

scoin on April 4, 2013 at 9:04 am

Englisch is ja wohl mal total einfach zu erlernen -.-
Mal davon abgesehen steht euch Amis und euch wannabe Spaniern der Rassismus echt net gut zu Gesicht. Ahja kleiner Hinweis an alle Amis: Ihr habt keine Kultur und ihr seid kein Volk, ihr seid ein bunt zusammengewürfelter Haufen von Nachfahren derjenigen die es in ihrem eigenen Land zu nix gebrach ham. Dieser ganze Rassismus und Fantatismus immer… aber wir sind ja die bösen nech? o0 So und das ganze schreibe ich auf deutsch damit der neue Trend des in der eigenen Sprache schreibens hier fortgesetzt werden kann. — Btw: America sucks and this here is another month without an update…

@Jareth
That was surprisingly readable, considering I only took the first half a latin class.
Sorry that people often fail at connecting with their heritage’s around here. It can be hard if one only has second hand information to get anything beyond the accent right, much less remember important things from neighboring cultures such as Germany.
I couldn’t read enough of the second half to know the answer to your question, sorry that I have yet to learn that much latin…

Extraintelligence on April 11, 2013 at 4:36 pm

Hitler was Austrian, just saying!

Pauric on April 12, 2013 at 11:59 am

@Jareth:

I respect all races, religions, nations and sexes. What I don’t have time for is bigotry.

I hope you continue writing in german as it is refreshing and allows me to brush up on my less used skills but please don’t post things like America sucks. I mean seriously do you know that ALL of America sucks? Have you seen all the states, have you ever been here?

I would love to visit Germany or anywhere else for that matter! Use my skills but alas I’m not rich. :p As for everyone else, lets keep it civil please. This isn’t a forum board for flaming, this is someone’s personal site. Up until now I haven’t read these posts and sadly i’m at a loss as most of the time the comments are quirky and funny. But ‘as usual’ the internet allows us to become flaming jerks, without borders and claiming total anonymity.

@JOE! Looking forward to the update bud, keep up the good work!

Cori on April 12, 2013 at 3:11 pm

I hate to say this Joe, but please, we are all begging you, PLEASE MAKE MORE OF THE POCALYPSE. OR AT LEAST MAKE SOME COMIC STRIP VERSIONS. THOSE CAN’T POSSIBLY TAKE AS LONG AS A FULL ANIMATION. WE WON’T CARE ABOUT COLOR OR DETAILS. I LIKE TO THINK I AM A PRETTY PATIENT GUY, BUT THIS IS STARTING TO IRRITATE ME

Pseudonym_ on April 12, 2013 at 11:48 pm

@Pseudonym Just stop caring about it. Look, I was impatient, but I had an idea. Check the page once a day, like at night. Check the scene, if no new scene, check the comments. If not, get into 9gag or play a game!

Erik on April 13, 2013 at 12:53 am

Wow, some of you guys are pretty ungrateful and impatient. Get a grip. Please ignore them Author Joe, there are more important things in life than providing an awesome webcomic for free. Hope you and your family are well.

@Jareth:
Not sure if you’re a troll, but you are embarassing yourself. Du beschwerst dich über Rassismus, lässt dann aber selbst extrem rassistische Kommentare ab. Da dreht sich mir echt der Magen um.

limepire on April 13, 2013 at 4:00 am

Guys i have a message from author joe about the future of the comic and of his where abouts,please take a minute to watch the video please its very touching.

@Pauric
Yes, I know, but he also held a German citizenship. Ergo, he is also German.

Erik on April 13, 2013 at 6:36 pm

I wish people would stop posting internet troll videos from five years ago, it makes me sick that this site is being defiles like that.

@Joe I know everyone has been yelling about updates but they do have a point, it has been over a month and now if you look at the update log, you would think it is a last update. we all are hoping you update the comic and are still alive.

technoWeasle on April 14, 2013 at 10:01 am

also @ the people who don’t read enough homestuck that is MY OWN typing quirk, so no double i’s, or two’s, or word replacement. If you wondering why, I stopped typing with it because it is hard.

1) whats latin to do with that? well yeah latin is one of the origins of this language but thats it o0
2) Hitler was from austria.
3) Dont call it Schnitzel
4) Nein ich bin weder ein Troll, noch bin ich rassistisch. Ich habe lediglich die Wahrheit gesagt.
5) Ich finde die Ironie hier herrlich, nicht-deutsche die Deutschen die Nazi-keule um die Ohren hauen und vorher selbst rassistisch wie sonst was sind ^^ herrlich. Jemand Popcorn?

Jareth on April 14, 2013 at 4:34 pm

Last time he updated we started rumours about the pocalypse end. Maybe that will work now!

Erik on April 14, 2013 at 6:53 pm

an update with news at least would be nice.

mouseman on April 14, 2013 at 7:09 pm

Have any of you realized that Joe could be working on the game we donated money too.so which is more important, something you paid for or something you getting for free.

king jd on April 14, 2013 at 11:46 pm

@Jareth:
Wenn du hier als Nazi beschimpft wurdest hab ich das verpasst, was durchaus sein kann. Dich als Nazi zu beschimpfen nur weil du Deutsch bist wäre natürlich unangebracht. Aber einfach mit eigenen rassistischen Kommentaren zu Kontern bringt wirklich gar nichts außer, dass du dir und Deutschland einen schlechten Ruf einbringst.

“Ich habe lediglich die Wahrheit gesagt”. tut mir Leid aber das ist einfach nur bullshit.

“Hinweis an alle Amis: Ihr habt keine Kultur”. Falsch, Amerika hat eine deutlich ausgeprägte Kultur, ob sie dir nun persönlich gefällt oder nicht.

“und ihr seid kein Volk” klingt etwas seltsam, wie definierst du hier Volk?

“ihr seid ein bunt zusammengewürfelter Haufen von Nachfahren” so ziemlich die einzige Wahrheit in deinen Statement. Heißt aber noch lange nicht, dass sich daraus keine Kultur entwickeln kann.

“derjenigen die es in ihrem eigenen Land zu nix gebrach ham.” Falsch, und hier ist der Rassismus (im Englischen würde ich statt “racism” in diesem fall das Wort “culturism” benutzen, da du dich ja nicht auf eine “Rasse” beziehst sonder auf eine kulturelle Gruppe) am deutlichsten, da du implizierst, dass alle Amerikaner Versager sind. Außerdem ist es einfach nur Respektlos gegenüber den Leuten die aus verschiedenen Gründen (ja unter anderem auch den Nazis) nach Amerika geflüchtet sind. Viele davon hoch intelligent, Wissenschaftler und Künstler etc.

“america sucks”: wenn das keine wertende und verallgemeinernde Aussage ist dann weiß ich auch nicht. Jedenfalls keine fakten!

tl,dr:

Countering racist statements with your own racist or culturist statements helps noone and only makes you look bad.

limepire on April 15, 2013 at 3:28 am

@ everyone:

Sorry for derailing this comment section. It just bothers me when people engage in racist or culturist discourse. I promise this was my last post on the matter.

limepire on April 15, 2013 at 3:31 am

@ Everyone

Ever heard the phrase put enough monkeys in a cage with a type writer and they will create shakespeare?

I think it applies here…

Wayne Mangham on April 15, 2013 at 6:10 am

Ok, nothing personal Author Joe, but when I start to forget the plot and I had to go back reading every post just to remind this and that, well, that’s the time to quit reading a webcomic. Nice job though… Good luck for the future! Bye!

Sam on April 15, 2013 at 7:43 am

Joe,
Are you alright? I hope things are going well. This long of an absence tends to make me feel that something really big is happening in your life right now. A fresh perspective can be helpful.

Mark on April 15, 2013 at 11:40 am

@Mark and all – Thank you for your concern! I feel loved :D I’m just fine, just really, really busy. Busy enough to keep pushing the next scene back and back :( I want to get Green Pixel’s big game projects out of the way (including The Pocalypse Defense 2) so that we can focus on smaller projects and, of course, the webcomic :D With my full-time job taking up my weekdays, I’m sure everyone can understand that these plans will be a slow process. Also, I understand that I will be losing readers as a result. I fully expected that and I understand how you all feel. All I can do is thank the people who are sticking around and supporting The Pocalypse! And, to all the readers who are leaving, I hope I can win you all back one day :D Thanks for checking up on me!

Joe on April 15, 2013 at 1:44 pm

Joe while i understand the frustration of the other readers i also understand how hard this will be for you with the new job. You have done a great job until now, and i for one will not be leaving because of a slow down like this. Good luck to you in your job, and i hope that things settle down for you soon so you can come back to us.

Casey Anderson on April 15, 2013 at 3:22 pm

Joe, have you considered getting someone to help you continue doing work on the webcomic? He/she would be responsible for the bulk of the work when you can’t do much, but you would be overseeing and making sure his/her work is consistent with the direction you want to take with The Pocalypse

Jhfds on April 15, 2013 at 6:42 pm

@Casey Anderson – Thank you very much! I make The Pocalypse for fans like you :D
@Jhfds – Yup, I’ve considered that :D

Joe on April 15, 2013 at 8:30 pm

I really love the Pocalypse, for real. I know that you have a new job and all… But please, as a true fan, make the new scene. This cliffhanger is killing me! :) (English is not my first language, I am sorry if I have any mistakes.)

FriedPotato on April 15, 2013 at 9:51 pm

All i say is: if you don’t stay in the bad times, dont bother to stay in the good times

PS: Glad to hear of you again autor Joe ;=)

Acrontus on April 15, 2013 at 9:58 pm

Joe, think about my Pocalypse survival game idea! Imagine being a random survivor(customizable!) somewhere in the world. You have to look for a place to live, some food(maybe), and more supplies!

Erik on April 15, 2013 at 10:34 pm

It is very good to hear from you Joe. I feel like I should ask for some reason: How has your baby been doing? I’m guessing this new job is cutting a bit into your family time as well as your comic time…

NeoWarrior on April 16, 2013 at 10:23 am

Just found your comic. Caught up in less than 12 hours…actually yelled profanity, realizing I caught up to a cliffhanger. Now I have no excuse not to do dishes and laundry. Congrats, Sir you have given me a superb story to fall in love with. My hat is off to you.

Todd on April 16, 2013 at 7:10 pm

I check on this website almost everyday to see if you post something new Joe, but if you’re busy, you’re busy. We love you, take care, you and your family. And take it easy ;p

Tyshi on April 16, 2013 at 10:42 pm

Every time I have the time, I check your site for an update. I really, really love your work. So yeah thank you for your awesome work, so you have my thanks and admiration, well for what its worth. I’ll keep voting as per usual, good luck and have a good day Author Joe! And by the way, don’t let us keep you from your personal life, the story can always continue in due time, not to mention your webcom is free, so I don’t have complaints. Stay safe and good luck!

Meodrac on April 17, 2013 at 6:16 am

Joe,

Do whatever you have to. This comic is one of those brilliant ones that will always have a core base, because it is just that awesome. Same with a number of other comics I read. I have also discovered that the best comics I have ever read, sometimes require ridiculously long hiatuses at times. Life is a pain that way. Homestuck, for its flash animations; Bazzelwaki, for all of its brilliant art and the troubled Ben Prager. Hell, even my own artist friend who is incredibly brilliant. As long as you make something worth making, don’t worry about how long it may take. Good art is worth it.

Ragingreaver413 on April 17, 2013 at 7:56 am

Still waiting and voting :)

good work Joe…

SA on April 17, 2013 at 12:40 pm

Really enjoy the comic! I’ve been slowly reading it for over a year now. I understand how much a full-time job can put a damper on your life. Can’t wait to see the next episode :)

Curtis on April 18, 2013 at 4:02 am

1 month 18 days since the last scene. I’m getting impatient but i understand that i have to wait and there is no way i’m going to stop reading this comic but please author Joe if you have time, make just a word update and let us know us whats going on with the new game and your new job.

MrHappy on April 18, 2013 at 9:41 am

At least make a post about the game progress, post pictures of the game, etc… most of us understand your situation, but you should communicate with us more often.

Keter on April 18, 2013 at 4:23 pm

maybe just a news update weekly or bi-weekly if you dont have a comic made?

mouseman on April 18, 2013 at 11:44 pm

Open the comic. dont end it, let the background music play. play songs by Player. pretty good hahaha XD

Khayne on April 19, 2013 at 3:04 am

Hey Joe, you can sell TP soundtrack for the funding of The Pocalypse Defense!

Erik on April 19, 2013 at 6:40 pm

I’m happy to hear that Joe. I’ll keep looking everyday.

Mark on April 19, 2013 at 11:10 pm

Joe, if I recall, there was someone who made a Pocalypse guest comic in the same style as you. You could see if he/she/it would be willing to make a few episodes while you are busy.

Pseudonym_ on April 20, 2013 at 4:16 pm

There’s a typo in this comic. Near the beginning Bernie says, “T-trust me Joe. I only want the best for you. I want your reunion with Annika to be bring you some peace and clarity.” Shouldn’t be a ‘be’ there in that last sentence. :P

EdirTeews on April 20, 2013 at 8:07 pm

I think Pseudonym is onto something. It’s not a bad idea, and it would keep the less patient among us coming back. I’ll be sticking around regardless, as I’ve always liked your work.

SardoukMeister on April 21, 2013 at 3:53 pm

Even tho the wait for the next comic is annoying ill always come back daily and check if its up. U need to make comics, a game, work and raise your kid and be a good husband. dude you get max points from me.

Nathan on April 22, 2013 at 9:54 am

The following of this comic is so loyal and supportive… And anxious! Can’t wait for the next scene!

Dyl on April 26, 2013 at 8:27 pm

why do I get a morbid feeling that Joe might be dead

Bruce Knode on April 27, 2013 at 2:02 am

Pass it over to someone else man – one update every 2 months is shit.

fsdfdsfsdfs on April 27, 2013 at 5:55 am

Friendly tip to fans here: ignore the trolls. Wayne Mangham just kind of shut up after getting ignored

Thisisnotanonymous on April 27, 2013 at 10:35 am

=)Joe u have my full suport man =) i been checking evryday for the next update and i tottaly undestand why is delay =) so take ur time and do it when u can man =) plus i cant wait to play the game =)

Dranlord on April 27, 2013 at 11:25 pm

@Thisisnotananymous – i never shut up dude,and us trolls have to find something to do while passing the time,i for one am a patient one and love seeing all the rage from kiddies who want things now now now now or else they tell mummy!

Wayne Mangham on April 28, 2013 at 6:52 am

@ Wayne Mangham – that and trolls will never truely be ignored.

OrdinalChaos on April 28, 2013 at 1:53 pm

@Bruce Knode *Cue eerie music*

Rythian on April 28, 2013 at 3:10 pm

Exactly,you chop a trolls arm off it simply grows back,according to fantasy anyways…

Wayne Mangham on April 29, 2013 at 7:11 am

@Wayne No, that was Piccolo

Erik on April 29, 2013 at 12:52 pm

@Erik, No trolls do that to

RedExodus on April 29, 2013 at 7:00 pm

I sent him a tweet and he is alive lol

http://www.wowwiki.com/Troll

actually trolls Erik

Wayne Mangham on April 30, 2013 at 10:34 am

@Oh, you were meaning THOSE trolls. Sorry, i dont play wow.

Erik on April 30, 2013 at 5:20 pm

i miss the comic :(

greenfeline91 on April 30, 2013 at 8:31 pm

my hope is drying out guys :(

Brettski on May 1, 2013 at 3:43 am

@Erik Actually “these trolls” are present everywhere. LoTR, a lot of MMOs, and others.

Nathan E. on May 1, 2013 at 1:15 pm

Wow, 2 months and nothing?

Goof on May 1, 2013 at 5:56 pm

I think 2 months is too long. (but I’ve waited longer)

Timstro59 on May 2, 2013 at 9:14 pm

I cant wait to figure out that Annika isnt Joe’s sister

RedExodus on May 2, 2013 at 9:39 pm

@Nathan Sorry, i’m more kinda like a FPS kid. And LoTR it’s on my list of movies that someday i have to see

Erik on May 2, 2013 at 10:47 pm

When will the next comic be ready Joe?

White Fire on May 3, 2013 at 3:27 am

About every week to two weeks I come to check the comments. Because you guys are HiLAR!!!ouS! I’ve waited longer for my fave show on TV to come back, and I think I can wait on this too.

Elizzy on May 4, 2013 at 4:29 am

Joe, I am not trying to make this sound mean at all, but, you have been making us wait for the next episode of the Pococlypse for way to long. Take a break from the game for a day and make an episode please

Niko on May 4, 2013 at 11:23 pm

GARRRRHHHH JOE! Y U NO HAVE NEXT SCENE YET?! I can wait, but I might just implode. Do you want that, Joe?

WHATTHEHECKJOE on May 5, 2013 at 2:13 pm

@Joe, sometimes I wish I could crawl inside your mind and live there. Is it just me?

Reina on May 5, 2013 at 2:22 pm

@Joe, this is cruel… you stopped at one of the moments with the most suspense then make us wait for at least 2 months? Just make an episode to stop the suspense about what is happening because it has been a very long time since the last episode. Maybe you could finish one by tomorrow?

Niko on May 5, 2013 at 6:15 pm

@Niko, Good luck whith that

RedExodus on May 5, 2013 at 8:16 pm

i guess is time to call it, real life again has claimed the life of a popular webcomic

shinikage on May 6, 2013 at 2:23 am

This is redonkulous.

oh dear on May 6, 2013 at 9:18 am

Wow I dunno it’s been 2 months and no word of anything? I think this is the end :[
Hopefully no one gets pissed about the game he was suppose to be making since he was funded for it and tries sueing or anything >> I mean… he did get ALOT of money out of it.

Zerphoon on May 6, 2013 at 9:43 am

joe, you need to come back. everything is falling to anarchy!! you used to police the comments soo well in the past. sigh…. also i’m itching for the next scene. it’ll be a huge dissapointment if the story ends here…. or gets rushed to an end. DON’T DO THIS TO US!!!!!

Lukas Lee on May 6, 2013 at 1:31 pm

PLEASE MAKE A NEW ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tigerstar on May 6, 2013 at 1:51 pm

@Joe You know how to get people in their toes right? xD
Now, dont wanna be a burden, so i’ll just say that people are losing faith here,
some are scared the comic just stops and all that, so…..you know, it wouldn’t be a
bad idea if you just posted a comment or something right? ;=)

Acrontus on May 6, 2013 at 2:51 pm

yay! 2 month anniversary without update! (:

[peouquieu] on May 6, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Wow…. I have been a reader from the beginning, but with this wait it makes me think that the comic is over…. Maybe have someone else take over so we can actually have a flowing comic?

Connor on May 6, 2013 at 5:59 pm

Don’t give up and call the Eternal Dragon!

Erik on May 6, 2013 at 6:02 pm

Still around and still reading comments/e-mails/tweets/posts (yes, there are a lot of them!) :D Just to maybe squirt a little splash of water onto the fire, the next scene is still planned and, @Zerphoon, TPD2 is still in production – we didn’t reach our funding goal but we did indeed get a lot of support from fans :D The Pocalypse is not over and I don’t plan on ending it anytime soon (otherwise, I would’ve stopped paying for the hosting of this site 2 months ago) :D Please keep posting, commenting, and e-mailing though! You all remind me everyday that people still want this story to go on!

Joe on May 8, 2013 at 9:46 pm

Well, real life sometimes wins. SOMETIMES. Give us some hope, Joe.

FriedPotato98 on May 8, 2013 at 9:54 pm

=( ='(

zur on May 9, 2013 at 2:17 am

Of course we do Joe! As for me, a comic on hiatus is always better than a comic that will be left unfinished. And even rushing up for a short low-quality scene just to make the impatient ones happy isn’t good – I’d rather wait two months more if that means keep the excellent quality standards The Pocalypse got up to this scene.

Francesco on May 9, 2013 at 5:06 am

@Joe, You know how you have said that future episodes will take longer? Well are they still going to take longer to make even after the Pocalypse TD2 has been made and everything?

Niko on May 9, 2013 at 3:35 pm

@Joe, also could you tell us like what day The pocalypse 2 will be out at most by?

Niko on May 9, 2013 at 4:10 pm

Good to hear that you are still there Joe

raikue on May 9, 2013 at 5:25 pm

Good to hear things are well Joe. Hopefully I can have a proper sit-down with Squizzel so you don’t have to leave these guys hanging.

Haydn Shaw on May 9, 2013 at 9:34 pm

k, that hopes should last for quite some time n.n
Good to hear you still with us Joe! and I’l have in mind that little piece of logic xD

Well, hope everything goes well, we’ll be waiting ;=)

Acrontus on May 9, 2013 at 11:46 pm

Weird….there’s allways at least 1 coment in this place a day, oh well xD

Acrontus on May 11, 2013 at 5:21 pm

@Haydn Shaw – That would be AWESOME :D
Thank you again for the support and patience, everyone! :D (I’d say this post has the record for most comments haha)

Joe on May 12, 2013 at 12:22 am

Brendan on May 13, 2013 at 9:42 pm

Less of the blonde jokes, Niko. You know they can’t keep up, especially as they’re busy staring at a carton of orange juice because it says “concentrate” on it…

There was an explosion at the cheese factory – debrie was everywhere

oh dear on May 14, 2013 at 5:31 pm

Well according to Ryan Sohmer, Joe doesn’t deserve credit now because he hasn’t updated: http://www.leasticoulddo.com/comic/20080509/
Luckily for us, he is an asshole and we generally don’t care about his opinion on others and his sh*tty comic. :D

Anyway, I hope a new update comes soon, even if it’s just an entry.

As for the joke:
– What is the favourite sport of fruits?
– Squash
(I know it’s bad)

Otter on May 14, 2013 at 6:04 pm

Otter, For your information Ryan made that in 2008 and not once does it mention Joe so don’t get mad at him.

Niko on May 14, 2013 at 6:32 pm

Tuesdasy
Jutin Beiber(He is such a joke)

Pseudonym_ on May 14, 2013 at 9:21 pm

@Niko Well obviously :) It’s just a notorious comic on the web, that shows how much of a jerk he is.

Otter on May 15, 2013 at 11:21 am

three things.
1) Pocalypse up till this brake never miss a update.
2) Ryan Sohmer is or runs a comic studio, with over 3 comic he dose and a list of comic that work with him, rights books, and is making a cartoon about Least I could do.
3) this little brake is small compared to some web comic http://dresdencodak.com/ has taken a year off, and dont get me start on http://megatokyo.com/.

A: There isn’t nothing.

JadeDrgn on May 16, 2013 at 5:58 am

Not to detract from your post Chris but updates have been missed/late before. (With late being more common) But yeah, in this last chapter it wasn’t really a problem until now.

Also, keeping in theme with a joke a day.
Why did the Orange stop rolling down the hill?
Because he ran out of juice.
I’m not really proud of that one.

bobsickle on May 16, 2013 at 1:39 pm

Joe, im lucky that i found your comments below this episode as i have kept checking back day after day and been frustrated to not see a new scene. I think many people will not see your comments and start to assume the pocalypse was dead so if i were you i would post a new update even if it just text to let everyone know you are still here! :)

Thanks for your hard work and all the best

Wednesday
So there is a tribe in Africa that kills random people and turn them into canoes. They capture three people. The are feeling nice and they let them decide their own death (Not including old age). So they ask the first person, he says he wants to have it quick and easy, so he take a bullet to the head. The second one says he just wants to be hanged. The third one says get me a fork. The tribe is confused but they get him a fork. He takes the fork, Starts stabbing himself, and yells “YOUR NOT MAKING ANY CANOE OUT OF ME!!!”. Lol.

are you ok? havent heard from you in a wile i hope i all is well

Concerned citizen on May 16, 2013 at 4:53 pm

I’ll be honest: This feels to me like you’ve stoped/slowed the update due to lack of donations. You are losing a huge ammount of followers, and that will directly affect your potential customers for the video game.

Wayne Mangham on May 18, 2013 at 6:10 am

It’s all well and good not updating the comic because you’re busy, but your lack of communication on here to let us know what is going on is shameful. It would take 30 seconds to keep us up-to-date with how shit is going.

oh dear on May 18, 2013 at 10:12 am

Wow .. I guess ThePocalypse is losing it’s flare huh .. And it was just getting good too .. What with rampaging Joe and all ..

HikariNoYami on May 18, 2013 at 11:47 am

For shit’s sake people, lay off Joe; He has a job that keeps him really busy and has a young kid to take care of, so I don’t blame him for not having updated us lately. Stop acting like ungrateful little shits and understand that he doesn’t have much free time to constantly update you.

Jhfds on May 18, 2013 at 3:27 pm

What Jhfds said is true! Stop being such a cry babies ¬ ¬ It’s not like Joe said he won’t do anymore comics, when stuff happens one needs time to set up, im not saying updates will be regular shortly but you people should be acting more gratefull and less like “ungrateful little shits”.

Apart from that, it’s funny how the day/joke thing is still on xD

Acrontus on May 18, 2013 at 4:25 pm

@oh dear you realize he posted 2 days ago right? i men is he supposed to post each and every day to tell you personally that nothing has changed, and he is still not able to update, but fully intends to at some time in the future?

Casey Anderson on May 18, 2013 at 5:39 pm

Yeah, I don’t see why he should be supposed to post everyday something like: “Day 72: Still unable to post a new update”. I’m sure he wishes to post a new scene as soon as possible, and as Casey said he even left a comment just a couple days ago. I just hope he ignores the stupid comments by impatient spoiled kids (or grown-ups, which is even worse), or he’ll just end up asking himself “Why do I have to waste my time for them?” and quit once for all. Please Joe, remember there are still many loyal readers :)

Francesco on May 19, 2013 at 6:38 am

I don’t mind the wait for the new comic, but I hope that it eventually does go up, I’ve been a loyal follower of many webcomics over the years that just stop updating midstory. Hopefully if that does happen, we can at least get a outline of what was to happen in terms of storyline :(.

Randomman on May 19, 2013 at 8:23 am

Oh dear, I have a different opinion, therefore I am a “spoiled kid”. Shun the non-believer, shuuuuun.

oh dear on May 19, 2013 at 11:46 am

@oh dear: read my whole post before complaining. You asked for more frequent posts by Joe, and he already posted a couple days ago. Sure he could post everyday, but what far? Would it make you feel better if he starts posting everyday just to say “Still busy, sorry” or he even starts posting blonde jokes himself to follow the stream in this page? He’s free to post even once every three-four weeks or so if he doesn’t have any info to give until then.
Just because you have a different opinion it doesn’t mean you can go “rabble rabble rabble” and expect no one to criticize.
That said, I’m just going to ignore posts made by people who complain without any actual constructive criticism, and I hope Joe will do the same.

Francesco on May 19, 2013 at 12:05 pm

Gah, I wish there could be an edit button… I meant “what for” xP

Francesco on May 19, 2013 at 12:06 pm

Haha, nice one geezer.

Next time I make sure i’ll offer a lot of constructive criticism then, instead of just an opinion or view point. Otherwise it’s not valid.

oh dear on May 19, 2013 at 1:03 pm

Oh Dear, your saying that Joe’s “lack of communication on here to let us know what is going on is shameful” is what ticked me off. That sentence in and of itself makes you sound arrogant and spoiled. Who are you to tell Joe what he should be ashamed of? Why should he be ashamed for being busy and not being able to placate you as often as a result? It’s not an opinion when you are telling someone how to feel.

Jhfds on May 19, 2013 at 7:29 pm

“Day 72: Still unable to post a new update” ;D Haha, I laughed out loud when I read that!
Feel free to voice your opinions everyone, just please respect each other :D I read every comment and, by now, there’s nothing I haven’t heard/read. All I can do is keep on truckin’ and hope that there’s at least one of you left when I finally post an update :D

Joe on May 19, 2013 at 10:08 pm

Oh, I sometimes post on the Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/thepocalypse) page and/or on Twitter (http://twitter.com/ThePocalypse) (say, when I’m on my phone) so feel free to follow me if you use either/both and you want a few more personal updates! :D

A blonde, a redhead, and a brunette were all lost in the desert. They found a lamp and rubbed it. A genie popped out and granted them each one wish. The redhead wished to be back home. Poof! She was back home. The brunette wished to be at home with her family. Poof! She was back home with her family. The blonde said, “Awwww, I wish my friends were here.”

tim on May 23, 2013 at 9:32 am

A blonde, wanting to earn some money, decided to hire herself out as a handyman-type and started canvassing a wealthy neighborhood. She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for her to do. “Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?” The blonde said, “How about 50 dollars?” The man agreed and told her that the paint and ladders that she might need were in the garage. The man’s wife, inside the house, heard the conversation and said to her husband, “Does she realize that the porch goes all the way around the house?” The man replied, “She should. She was standing on the porch.” A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money. “You’re finished already?” he asked. “Yes,” the blonde answered, “and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats. “Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50. “And by the way,” the blonde added, “that’s not a Porch, it’s a Ferrari.”

I think I will continue checking as I do, unless in 3 years time there have been no updates of any kind.

OrdinalChaos on May 25, 2013 at 4:24 am

@Joe I’m sure be one left for the next update. I always check to comic everyday, and not just because I’m too lazy to find and use a site update checker webpage/program, but because it’s the same feeling when seeing if there is a new comic in the newspaper back in the day :) Also I used to check the unofficial sequel to Concerned (Half-life 2 comic) for a long time, every day, although it has been on hiatus since 2010. I’m used to this stuff. I know you will continue one day.

You are still alive? Damn, my assassin failed again… i mean… good to see you again :)

Nintai on May 26, 2013 at 4:35 am

Shifting gears, Joe??
I think its more like slamming your foot on the brake!!!
But none the less I am still here waiting for the next installment!!
PATIENTLY!!!

Pauric on May 26, 2013 at 9:22 am

The longer I wait, the more I anticipate the next update!! I am absolutely in love with this webcomic and all it’s interesting characters!! Keep it up Joe ^_^

Kiera on May 26, 2013 at 11:01 pm

Joe, stop making comments please. I’d rather you give us a progress report than give us some random comment the fact that you are still alive. Anyone who has waited this long for one simple update on the site deserves to have a respectable update to this site, not “Hope you’re all having a great weekend, everyone!”. We are fast approaching 3 months of waiting now. If you have the time to comment on this site, you have the time to tell us why we have to wait so damn long for one new comic of Thepocalypse.

Brendan on May 27, 2013 at 1:45 pm

I’m not sure if this comment is already here, anyway quoting somehow one of my favorite characters and books: I DID MY WAITING!!! TWELVE YEARS OF IT!!! IN AZKABAN!!!, the quote will apply very soon if Joe doesn’t comeback soon.

Joe comeback to us, don’t go into the light, or at least not until the comic is over :D

Heinz on May 27, 2013 at 4:03 pm

jesus f*ckin christ… its nearly 3 months since last update… just get your shit together Joe and give us new sweet update… maybe you can start with investing the time you are wasting on worthless comments here and Facebook and Twitter (and I dont know where else) into making a new part of Pocalypse :-P

Permonick on May 27, 2013 at 10:36 pm

I think the answer is obvious Brenden. Despite statements that Joe wants to “finish the story”, Joe is now involved in other things in life. He has a job as an artist for a company, has a family with a two year old son, and has a lot less free time than in previous months. Hence Joe lacks the time and resources to do anything with this comic. And like many other good internet comics, it is dying as real life interferes with his ability to continue it. But Joe, like any artist, is unwilling to admit this this special project, once his pride and joy, is now way down the priority list in his life. Oh he really does keep intending to get back to it .. and he’ll keep intending to do so as the months tick by. We may even see one or two comics again, a last ditch attempt to restart it on some semi-regular basis. But those efforts will quickly die, leaving nothing by a rotting hole in it’s place.

Ken on May 27, 2013 at 10:43 pm

True, but it shows his commitment to the site is unwavering. He probably doesn’t want to give a progress report because he’s too busy to know yet. If he didn’t come back every week and comment then people’s interest would swiftly drift from the following, and that would make his next comic somewhat in vain provided you are not subscribed to some sort of RSS or Twitter feed. I’m working on some guest episodes but it’ll be a couple of weeks before I have anything. I’m a little bit busy myself, and having made previous obligations, I have to attend to those first before I can properly focus on this. I imagine Joe is only in the same boat.

Haydn Shaw on May 28, 2013 at 7:45 am

@Brendan he has all ready told us why we are waiting so long. Why should he do it over and over again just because you are too lazy to go back and read the posts? Chillax this is gonna be a while at this point the man is busy with things beyond his controll, and he will be back when he has time again.

Casey Anderson on May 28, 2013 at 10:23 am

A blonde goes into a nearby store and asks a clerk if she can buy the TV in the corner. The clerk looks at her and says that he doesn’t serve blondes, so she goes back home and dyes her hair black. The next day she returns to the store and asks the same thing, and again, the clerk said he doesn’t serve blondes. Frustrated, the blonde goes home and dyes her hair yet again, to a shade of red. Sure that a clerk would sell her the TV this time, she returns and asks a different clerk this time. To her astonishment, this clerk also says that she doesn’t serve blondes. The blonde asks the clerk, “How in the world do you know I am a blonde?” The clerk looks at her disgustedly and says,”That’s not a TV, it’s a microwave!”

Casey Anderson on May 28, 2013 at 10:25 am

tuesday

blonde sisters own a farm, and they both buy a horse, they don’t know how to tell them apart, so the nick one’s ear, then the other horses ear gets nicked by a tree. Then they cut off one of the horses tails, a week later the other horse’s tail gets cut off by barbed wire. “Anything we do to one happens to the other, how will we tell them apart?” said the younger sister. “How about we measure them?” said the older sister. “Great idea!” said the younger one. So they measured them. It turns out the white horse is three inches taller than the black one.

soap on May 29, 2013 at 2:34 am

I think he just wants to prove that he hasn’t forgotten about us.

The Khan on May 29, 2013 at 3:59 am

I’m baaack! I am thinking Green Pixel should expand and add one more person to their “empire”.

Let’s sing a song, kids, shall we? – On the 83th day without updates, Author Joe gave to us, 83 days of no updates, 82 days of no updates, 81 days of no updates…… (please do not take this too personally, Joe, I will stay your reader (and gamer ; D), Green Pixel’s too awesome to neglect for me. Though I might consider marking the 100th day without updates and celebrate it with mourning and a Pocalypse Marathon. I really am capable, I stayed awake a whole 3 days watching all possible episodes of “Hellsing”.)

I’m really sorry I couldn’t donate to the project, and I really wanted to be one of the NPCs, too. And I also apologize for this long, meaningless post for the other commenters.

Over the very few years I have been introduced to the world of webcomics, this is one of the best of what I saw so far. I have seen webcomics stop updating entirely without notices (i keep checking them) despite their success. I do not want you, Author Joe, to be one of them. It is nice enough of you to comment once in a while, though. It proves that you are not dead and the Pocalypse will not turn out to never end. I hope that you can find some time to really get the Pocalypse back in order with regular, hm, not necessarily weekly, but monthly updates.

Acrontus on May 30, 2013 at 12:21 am

Don’t worry Eat, Joe isn’t going to let us down. Part of why he does pop in periodically is to remind us that he isn’t going to drop the comic anytime soon!

BloodWolf7 on May 30, 2013 at 2:56 am

I hope that the episode or game is out by 6/11/13, who ever can tell me what the comment(s) that tells you why that specific date, (It is in an episode way back), Wins.

Niko on May 30, 2013 at 4:01 pm

not sure why people can be so impatient sometimes.take as much time as you need Joe. And if people need a pocalypse fix that badly I could write something non-canon as long as there’s no objections to the idea.

haven on May 31, 2013 at 1:34 am

@ Niko – Say whaaaaa?

Wayne Mangham on May 31, 2013 at 1:01 pm

@Niko ok, slow down…… you just said what now?!

Acrontus on May 31, 2013 at 6:52 pm

Ok so this challenge applies to every one, In one episodes comments Joe said something about 6/11/13 I replied. So it’s your job to figure out what episode this conversation was in. And you must tell me the exact words of the conversation. Whoever can do this first wins. Plus you have to tell me why I like that day.

Niko on June 1, 2013 at 8:34 am

Can’t believe it’s June already! I really wanna get to the scene sometime this month. Would anyone be interested in a live stream of me creating the next scene? There’d be spoilers of course and I don’t know how my bandwidth would handle it but it’d be cool to get a few of you pushing me to make the scene :D Tell me what you think!

Joe on June 1, 2013 at 3:39 pm

It would be nice, very nice indeed Joe.

Neoplasm on June 1, 2013 at 11:28 pm

that would be awesome whatever it takes to have the net scene XD

greenfeline91 on June 2, 2013 at 12:43 am

I think, Joe, you should do anything to make then next scene up,Because I like pixelated comics, so does the others.

Alexis on June 2, 2013 at 12:51 am

Regardless of whether there are updates, I’ll still be checking years from now. I’ve known other sites go through 2+ years without an update, and when they return, the fans are still there, so I’m sure you’ll have plenty of people still checking when you do post the next scene.

SEoF on June 2, 2013 at 9:51 am

Oh, and streaming might be awesome, but you’ll likely do it at a time when most people aren’t available. uStream will only take up as much of your bandwidth as Skype or the likes, and can easily be embedded on your site.

SEoF on June 2, 2013 at 9:55 am

YESYESYES PLEASE YES!!!!! My life would be complete if you did a live stream! Not to mention it would definitely bump up everybody’s enthusiasm for the comic again :) PLEASE DO A LIVE STREAM JOE!!!!!!

narnianerd on June 2, 2013 at 7:14 pm

could be interesting

Casey Anderson on June 3, 2013 at 12:52 am

Live stream or no, I will keep on waiting for the next comic and the ones after that. Your work is worth the wait and you do it for free even. Even if it takes a year I will check in every day. And every time I see the walking zombie loader I get excited, thinking you updated lol. Thanks Joe, for all you do for us, your fans. You=awesome

Day 90:
Tuesday
A guy goes to a supermarket and notices a beautiful blonde who waves at him and says hello.
He’s rather taken back, because he can’t place where he knows her from, so he asks, “Do you know me?”
To which she replies, “I think you’re the father of one of my kids.”
Now he thinks back to the only time he has ever been unfaithful to his wife and says, “Oh my god, are you the stripper from my bachelor party that I laid on the pool table with all my buddies watching, while your partner whipped me with wet celery and then stuck a carrot in my butt?” She replies, “No, I’m your son’s math teacher.”

[peouquieu] on June 5, 2013 at 9:56 am

Day 98:
A blind millionaire went on a trip in his private jet. At 20,000 feet the pilot called him into the cockpit to tell him he was feeling ill and had chest pains. Suddenly the pilot keeled over with a heart attack. The blind man panicked as he felt the plane nose-diving and rocking violently, so he dragged the pilot out of his seat and strapped himself in. After a lot of frantic fumbling around he located the radio and called into it: “Mayday! Mayday!” Ground control heard the call for help and inquired what the problem was. “I am blind and alone in a plane, the pilot had a heart attack and I’m flying upside down. Mayday! Mayday!” Ground control said: “Calm down, sir. Just to clarify, you are blind, is that correct? If so how do you know you are flying upside down?” The blind man replied: “Because I can feel my shit running up my back!!”

Okay guys, I think it’s about time we got over it:
Joe gave up The Pocalypse. Since it failed gaining any funds and money, he ain’t working on it anymore. Had people paid up, he would’ve probably continued, but he ain’t. So move on.

Some good other web comics to follow are:
LookingForGroup
GoblinsComic
TwoKinds
BearNuts
SDamned

Have a nice day ya all. This site ain’t be updating again, because Joe is not getting dem monies from us. Just go somewhere else. Last flash was 07/03/13 : 3 MONTHS AGO. There’s no excuse – he’s not working on it no more.

Go somewhere else. This site is now removed from my favs, because by comming to this site and seeing the adverts, he’s getting cash for something he ain’t doing.

See you all.

now we are fast approaching 3.5 months of waiting for a single episode. I hope the episode coming out is beyond expectations, otherwise this will end up being the last I end up coming to check on ThePocalypse.

@brendan do us all a favor and stfu, if you dont want to wait, then dont wait. go so something else, but idle threats about not coming back to check the web comic that is provided free of charge to you? thats just low rent. suck a rail road spike.

For those that are upset I suggest re-reading Joe’s last update where he warned us all that future updates are going to be very delayed due to real life stuff. If you want to donate enough money that he can quit his job, support his family, and spend his time making you comics go for it. I’m sure he would love it lol. Otherwise check in and move on just like the rest of us. When he updates it will be good enough for me. Joe – Thanks for an awesome webcomic and all the work you are doing to bring us games based in your universe :)

MIRACLES ARE REAL. BRING OUT THE UNICORNS AND LEPRECHAUNS AND LET’S DRINK THE POTION OF ETERNAL YOUTH!
JOE! If this has happened, you can do ANYTHING!
