101! 07/07/2011

by Joe

101st scene! :D :D (Because I forgot that the last scene was our 100th and because 101 sounds cooler :D)

I can’t believe I’ve made 101 of these (not counting filler scenes)! The Pocalypse hasn’t reached its first birthday yet, but I feel that we’ve come a long way, thanks to everyone’s support :D

Here’s to another 101 and beyond!

Also, it’s awesome to hear that so many of you have green thumbs! Growing plants is pretty magical :D

Enjoy Scene 15 – “Not Your Usual B&B”!

Please continue to vote! :D Bug’s sketch is still the incentive! Thank you for voting everyday!

first ^^

Cristian on July 7, 2011 at 11:55 am

I really hope the old dude ends up shot.

WiseMan on July 7, 2011 at 11:58 am

he uploaded while i was on sweet!

George lutech on July 7, 2011 at 12:03 pm

hahaha i freaking thought about it!!!
he had machines i knew HE HAD MACHINES!!!!
so that means his gear is basically fake then
the son…still a mystery but the weird guy hacked the robots!!
oh and sime of you saying they patrol and kill the zombies i think that one of his robots functions then

scavenger on July 7, 2011 at 12:09 pm

11mins off being 1st talk bout some detected readers!

mutant hunter on July 7, 2011 at 12:09 pm

also, boom! cloraform.

George lutech on July 7, 2011 at 12:10 pm

I call for blood! Bloooood!

Or some kind of creepy-bastard-blood equivalent!

Delta Pangaea on July 7, 2011 at 12:11 pm

You know what. They both scare me, like father like son. But maybe the son will rebel, and feel sorry for the pretty girl….They are still creepy.

Booieann on July 7, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Hmmm… the machines were his. not what I woulda guessed. and when i saw those doors in the wall, I knew someone would be comming through them. Cant believe Bernie missed those. Wonder what the creepy kids gona do to Annika?

Leviticus on July 7, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Still, either way it happens, the son seems to have a problem with his father, since he said “He’s shy.”

But I wouldn’t put it up to anything big yet.

KingBreaker on July 7, 2011 at 12:35 pm

Or maybe he’s just trying to help, cause he doesnt want to work for his dad anymore… I just hope she doesnt end up shooting him, cause then Gregory’ll go psyco

Leviticus on July 7, 2011 at 12:37 pm

P.S. Joe, you should bring another zombie horde into it somewhere, we havent seen zombies since the 2 Doc killed with the LFB.

Leviticus on July 7, 2011 at 12:49 pm

I KNEW IT I FUCKING KNEW IT~! WORKING FOR/WITH THE FREAKING MACHINES! His son likes Annika though so he’s not going to harm anyone ;3

Anonymous_Jr on July 7, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Hanger of cliffs is the conclusion of this episode.


Yoinkinator on July 7, 2011 at 1:00 pm

i got a even better idea….even more powerful zombies
you know in resident evil they have regular zombies and zombies are get stronger and more messed up looking
just asing Joe but can ya make some kind of new zombie?
since there is a mutant that knows how to use a gun can’t a zombie get more deadly?
like bones creating armor on it or spitting acid or just running faster?
becuase i hope everyone agrees this does has a lot of deadly enemies but there should at least be more then 1 kind of zombie…nobody just wants to watch 1 kind of zombie walking around slowly waiting to get shot…make some smarter ones or so on
then we see who deadlier…and zompires dont count…they mix not-full zombie

scavenger on July 7, 2011 at 1:00 pm

Scavenger-> So long as there are no Tsumo Wrestler zombies out there…

Leviathan on July 7, 2011 at 1:31 pm

okay I can see that I was wrong with mr machine here, but that kid is starting to creep me out! Also it seems that something is going on here and it ain’t good.

sykes on July 7, 2011 at 1:50 pm

I was just going back through a few older episodes, to touch up on my memory. I wana run a few ideas off you guys, and maybe have Joe confirm them.
Firstly, Im thinking Annika is Joe’s sister. Cause he said he had a sister and a brother, and she said 2 older brothers… and they havent actually met in any of the episodes.
Second, there were alot of ideas that Greybane was a werewolf, and I think I agree with them. But Greybane also calls Bug “Old Friend”, and Bug certianly isnt a normal mutant. mutants were supossedly once humans, soo… Could Bug be a werewolf turned mutant? Like Cross and Andy (and possibly Rosa) are Vampires turned zombie?

Leviticus on July 7, 2011 at 2:10 pm

I agree with everything Leviticus said. Also, it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that the son is actually a robot.

EmoKirby on July 7, 2011 at 2:21 pm

OMG ANNIKA WATCH OUT!!1*screams*??????:AAAHHHHHH RAPIST oh wait Joe has not made it yet so meh.*Insert Rickroll*

Edward on July 7, 2011 at 2:24 pm


Edward on July 7, 2011 at 2:26 pm

@Leviticus – good find about the siblings!

Zach on July 7, 2011 at 2:54 pm


I agree.

Here’s to hoping Scott is there to help them and is working against his psychotic father. Personally, I think it would be amazing if Annika was the one to shoot Gregory, but at the same time, I don’t the girl needs that on her shoulders. It would either traumatize her or break her out of her shell. We shall see.

volpethrope on July 7, 2011 at 3:13 pm

That kid is going to do something baaaad…..

Jon on July 7, 2011 at 4:20 pm

Machine slaves/employees? And they’ve targeted Bernie’s group because Annika has been identified as a viable breeding partner? Sinister stuff is going down, I just don’t really know what it is yet

Snerky on July 7, 2011 at 4:52 pm

Anika’s gonna be sent to Greybane.
Anika’s gonna be sent to Greybane.
Anika’s gonna be sent to Greybane.
…. And the kid might become a father….!

sh4d0wfl4re on July 7, 2011 at 5:27 pm

Awww Bernie and Annika are so cute together.

Damn you Scott’s dad!

And then there’s Scott. … ANNIKA SHOOT HIM QUIIIICKKKK before he does anything BADDDDD.

Yinello on July 7, 2011 at 5:45 pm


For some reason, I feel as though the guy’s son will actually try and save Annika. I wonder… 8D

Tars on July 7, 2011 at 5:53 pm

Wait none of them got hurt yet. BUT STILL!
This is bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad x10

Anon on July 7, 2011 at 6:04 pm

personally i don’t think scott is human(or at least doesn’t seem to be 1.he doesn’t remove his hat 2.he doesn’t speak often 3.he follows whatever his father says without question. though it might just be he is very shy and loyal, oh and he doesn’t seem to need sleep)

nightarix on July 7, 2011 at 6:55 pm

oh and joe the rss double posted this scene

nightarix on July 7, 2011 at 6:58 pm

@nightarix what if scott is a robot?

Warlord on July 7, 2011 at 7:37 pm

ok people lets stop guessing what they might be and guess what they might do

scavenger on July 7, 2011 at 8:19 pm

LOL the son is SUCH a creeper and that shady old guy, damn…obviously works for the machines. Truthfully, I can’t wait to see more development on how all the species are divided and who’s the major ruling species on this apocalyptic world because they all have to be in some kind of World War. (it’s probably the machines though) Technology ALWAYS wins.

KiDDa on July 7, 2011 at 10:10 pm

robots arent a species…
also,joe you need to sneak in a fallout reference dooooo it doooooooo iiiiiiit you know you want to…

hypnokrit on July 7, 2011 at 10:54 pm

Ok. wow. half suprised, half “I knew it!” They’re probably going to be ambushed when they leave, annika’s going to “dissapear,” or Scott is good and is trying to stop his father. Either way, they’re in for a fight

Pocalypselove0001 on July 7, 2011 at 11:22 pm

knew the old guy had something to do with the machines. they probabley staged dying. oh and lemme guess, the old guy sends his “guests” to the machines for experiments or whatever, right?

YoYoDude on July 8, 2011 at 1:13 am

suprise coincidence thats it my birthday, right? or are there no such things as coincidences?

Alexander Campbell Heath on July 8, 2011 at 1:52 am

Yeah “True Romance” quote, love that film Joe. I wonder if it’ll be Scott or Bernie who ends up getting lucky with Annika,Maybe zombie Elvis will make an apperance?

Keep them movie references coming mate ;-)

Hillbo on July 8, 2011 at 2:10 am

Oh man, I am seriously liking how this story is turning up! I am excited to see the next scene! :’D
oh gosh you leave me on the edge of my seat asdfghjkl

Muffins on July 8, 2011 at 2:12 am

@Hillbo that’s a little messed up but probally Bernie.

Edward on July 8, 2011 at 2:44 am

I would just like to give props to you for not going “corrupt” with such a large fanvase,as in not listening to or even reading comments and never updating just to get more donations. Thats why I like the pocalypse. A short time between updates, a whole cast of cool, awesome characters that can all be found as nice , even if only by a few standards sometimes. Also, there can be really any genre at once, so nice work on this series and I hope you do not plan on ending this series anytime soon, because you have truly made everyone’s day.

PerfectlySteamedTie on July 8, 2011 at 3:04 am

Zombies don’t run! I bring you back to this article (linked as “my website”)

Ultimately, this is my understanding of where mutants come about, the mutated living. Anything dead is essentially rotting, and doesn’t have oxygen flowing to the necessary parts of the body for the body to be able to function. This makes “fast zombies” unrealistic, and takes away some of the awesomeness that is zombies.

Joe, doing a great job: I’ve been enjoying this for months now!

SEoF on July 8, 2011 at 3:41 am

unless it’s like quantum mechanical robots (i.e. Transformers)
THEN TECHNICALLY, they are a species.

KiDDa on July 8, 2011 at 3:44 am

Oooooooh i knew he was a machine or somehting along the lines of helping a machine he stole that weapon i knew t i knew it i knew it i knew it

Leinahtan on July 8, 2011 at 4:23 am

Well Hillbo Bernie has a better chance but Scott may be trying to help, you never know what’s inside joes mind and well, annika could end up with Joe (Charecter) froa ll we know

Leinahtan on July 8, 2011 at 4:25 am

@author Joe:
this scene is creepy, messed up, and probably one of the most tense moments of the entire series, yet… somehow-so far awesomest part yet. thumbs up by me :)

Decifer on July 8, 2011 at 6:24 am

I agree with Scavenger. I’d like to see the zombies getting upgrades as well. Bug on the mutant side is pretty awesome, Andrius and Cross also bring some pretty cool shit to the table as Zompires. We’ve seen Bug, Vampire Elders and other signs of evolution in the monster species, so lets see the zombies adapt a bit and get some survival skills. This far into an apocalypse it would probably start happening anyway, evolution doesnt stop for the undead.

Enzeru Kagai on July 8, 2011 at 6:37 am

Hey, Joe. I while back, you asked for some suggestions of games/movies with zombies in it.Well I have a great one (or at least I think so)
It`s called “Amnesia: The Dark Descent”
I don`t know if the monsters in it are zombies, but they act and look like them. But the one thing that separates it from other games of it`s type is the fact you don`t have weapons. Just run and hide.
It`s a computer game if you ever want to try it out. You can look up videos on Youtube of it also. :)
Great episode by the way. How I love cliffhangers. :D

Spade-Nya on July 8, 2011 at 6:38 am

@nightarix – You’re right, 2 RSS posts! My internet had a hiccup, so I had to refresh the Publish page and re-publish. Just ignore the first one :D
@Alexander Campbell Heath – Happy birthday! :D
@Hillbo – Sorry, I haven’t seen “True Romance” :( Amazing that I inadvertently quoted it! Do you have a link to a video that shows the reference? I’d love to see it! :D
@PerfectlySteamedTie – Thank you! :D I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon! And, no matter how big the fanbase gets, I’m going to continue to try my best to listen to and connect with all of you :D
@Spade-Nya – Thanks for the suggestion!

Joe on July 8, 2011 at 8:00 am

Pedobear ALERT

Erik on July 8, 2011 at 8:34 am

hey I’m a new fan and my idea is the robots were hacked and he is not working for them because if he where he probably wouldn’t be dragging it like that also i agree with PerfectlySteamedTie i like that you look at the comments and respect your fans joe

bladesofblode on July 8, 2011 at 9:09 am

ok just saying Joe but since Zombies should be uped a bit try and get a idea from Dead Frontier
it has all kinds of zombies
it would be awesome if ya added a fat acid spitting zombie or a zombie that is growing bones as armor
its either that or at least a zombie that is more intelligent
or one of my favs on the game is a zombie with a biga$$ sword like arm that also uses it as a shield

scavenger on July 8, 2011 at 9:39 am

I have an idea: Robots + zombies = ZOMBIE CYBORGS!

No? How about some random revelationthat Joe is the results of Bernie’s dad trying to create some sort of super soldier to fight the various bad guys in Hammerton.

Even though this would likely have no bearing on anything.

Noble 7 on July 8, 2011 at 10:19 am

OK! Since we’re all in the hibrid business all of the sudden how about we make it like this? With 5 known enemy “families” known and confirmed (Zombie, Vampire, Mutant, PlantMonster, Machine), let us name the hibrids!
List for you to use:
Zombie + Vampire = Zompyre
Zombie + Mutant =
Zombie + PlantMonster =
Zombie + Machine =
Vampire + Mutant =
Vampire + PlantMonster =
Vampire + Machine =
Mutant + PlantMonster =
Mutant + Machine = “Cyborg”
PlantMonster + Machine =

NeoWarrior on July 8, 2011 at 10:56 am

What’s b*b?

aattss on July 8, 2011 at 11:56 am

I knew it.

lukesf on July 8, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Heh, called it.

Acadian Bacon on July 8, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Joe I think there should be some kind of forgotten monster race called The Inners it could explain how Joe got Inner Joe and stuff.

Edward on July 8, 2011 at 2:43 pm

i cant take it what is going to happen to joe and rosa

redcoversation on July 8, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Just thought it would be nice to figure some names out
Here’s my list of names:
Zombie + Vampire = Zompire
Zombie + Mutant = Zomtant
Zombie + PlantMonster = Zompster
Zombie + Machine = Zomchine
Vampire + Mutant = Vamptant
Vampire + PlantMonster = Vampster (hehe hamster)
Vampire + Machine = Vamchine
Mutant + PlantMonster = Mupster
Human + Machine = Cyborg
PlantMonster + Machine = Planchine

Dagzter on July 8, 2011 at 5:30 pm

those robots are most likely programming made by a rouge A.I.
so no they are not a species, they are only programming NOT a species.
also if you say “the ai is a species” its not. it is programming too.

hypnokrit on July 8, 2011 at 6:05 pm

@Dagzter & NeoWarrior
plant + machine = bio-bot
Zombie + mutant = mute-pie
vampire + plant = blood-root
(also mupster sounds like a gang nickname…)

hypnokrit on July 8, 2011 at 6:10 pm

Plant + Zombie = Weedbie. :D

Or Zomgrass.

Yinello on July 8, 2011 at 7:24 pm

*sigh* Well if you read my last post PROPERLY then you’ll notice that I said, “unless they are quantum mechanical robots” and I did not bring up the A.I idea again. So you can go trollface yourself in the mirror for being illiterate.

KiDDa on July 8, 2011 at 11:07 pm

I think Bernie likes Annika ( or how you spell or call her ) and Rosa likes Bernie so Rosa is like : “FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-” and releases her zompire power and inner joe is a fag. lol.

asdasd on July 8, 2011 at 11:50 pm

Inner Joe is ssoooo a fag.He must be evil like Hollow Ichigo from Bleach.

Edward on July 9, 2011 at 12:47 am

The kids gonna rape Annika! O_o

Zombie Killer on July 9, 2011 at 2:25 am

Um. I’m thinking about them being the relatives of Joe .. They were in the middle of being attacked by zombies when Bernie’s father came and helped them .. then Joe and his sister got injured so Bernie’s father brought them to the hospital that was a bernie’s father’s secret lab in the first scene .. did everything to save them .. couldn’t save the sister .. leaves Joe in the hospital while bringing back the sis .. then Joe’s family got super depressed and went and captured some robots .. but then Scott got injured and had to replace som parts with robot ones .. as for the organs they replace them with the organs from survivors or zombies ?? That may be Author Joes way to introduce Humbies Zoman (Human Zombies)??

Chris on July 9, 2011 at 3:10 am

@aattss (and anyone else who doesn’t know):
B&B = Bed and Breakfast

Tsumeken on July 9, 2011 at 3:32 am

A zombie is already a variation on a human, so I don’t really think that works, Chris. :\

Willy on July 9, 2011 at 10:08 am

sorry .. didn’t make myself clear .. meant Zombies who’ve gainned the ability to think .. maybe they evolved .. that may also be the reason why they don’t approach Gregory’s Farm .. cause they’ve gained the ability to feel fear ?? what do you think ??

Chris on July 9, 2011 at 12:26 pm

also I would like to make the new team .. going with the Simon’s a robot theory ..

Joe = Superpowered HUMAN
Bernie = Human Sharpshooter w/ Advanced Robot Suit
Jess = Human w/ Advanced Robot Suit
Scrufflebeck = Plant Monster Pet
Harry = Super Computer
Rosa = Zompire
Doc = Super Mad Genius
Simon = Robot Boy xD
Gregory = Was once a Friend/Relative/Brother of Doc ?? but didn’t want to leave the farm so they got separated ??

Um Author joe .. why is Rosa not in the Logo ??

Chris on July 9, 2011 at 12:35 pm

actually if a living human had the organ’s of the living dead transplanted into him, would the zombie organs zombify the rest of the body?
(my guess is yes but would there be a way to prevent the spread of the disease while utilizing the undead organs?)

sh4d0wfl4re on July 9, 2011 at 12:39 pm

the zombie virus is present in all body fluids, including saliva and blood. It is also present in the crevices of the human body, such as nails. Also, because it is a virus, it would be present in all organs connected to the blood stream. Due to viruses being easily able to be denatured, they cannot last forever, and would require being replaced, the most common form of replacement being the explosive destruction of the cells of the host. However, an ideal zombie virus would be a retrovirus, allowing it to replicate with minimal cellular destruction, as the cells themselves would “bleed” the virus out in smaller doses instead of being sheared apart.

Raging Reaver on July 9, 2011 at 2:25 pm

the zombies organs are most likely rotted or deformed past usability
so it would be the equivalent of putting a chunk of zombie flesh inside a human…

& @chris
Jess = human demolitions expert w/ advanced robot suit
also @KiDDa
wouldn’t that be a bit creepy to troll-face myself in a mirror & transformers was a cool movie… the second and third were great to…
don’t diss it by saying they aren’t a species also what the fuck does quantum mechanics
have to do with them?

hypnokrit on July 9, 2011 at 2:28 pm

lol. rage…

hypnokrit on July 9, 2011 at 2:29 pm

To answer your question, Shadow, no, unless you put a blood filter in every connection around the organ, and the organ itself would have to be quarantined from the rest of the body at the least by an impermeable plastic bag. Also, as the zombie organ would lose function from cellular death of the viruses taking over the cell’s production, it would not last too long before it began to fail the needs of a living body. In essence, it would be a costly temporary repair at best, and a walking, biohazard timebomb at worst.

Raging Reaver on July 9, 2011 at 2:31 pm

lol, mupster

Grant on July 9, 2011 at 3:43 pm

Heh. Sorry for sounding so serious there. I’m really not that serious. I guess I just let my creativity run free there, which I am prone to doing and like it. :)

I personally support the stronger zombies idea, aswell as the extra character development, I actually think deep down jess is a softie.

PerfectlySteamedTie on July 9, 2011 at 4:35 pm

i have a great idea for the plants joe…
there is a type of fungi that appears on an ant then manipulates its mind to climb higher and find a perfect spot to release more spores to take more ants…
i hope you find that useful.

hypnokrit on July 9, 2011 at 11:06 pm

Grant? What did that part of the page come from, good lad? If i knew i would be very likely to “check the page out,” as some of you youngsters or however young the large group of commenters are. I shall not reveal my age, but I am older than 25 but younger than 40. It has been noce commenting to joe, oh you jolly good man, for this adventure if F***ING AWESOME bitches! And by bitches I mean Hubert Cumberdale, and the mr. Cheezyman. Now I gotta dash you (not) immature duds!

Nick on July 10, 2011 at 12:38 am


Erik on July 10, 2011 at 12:46 am

Hey Joe, here, on Argentina, is saturday, and where this page is using time is sunday, so, where’s comic?

Erik on July 10, 2011 at 12:47 am

Don’t rush Joe. Let him get the new scenes in when he’s ready. something probably happened (hopefully nothing to serious) and it delayed the next scene.

Pocalypselove0001 on July 10, 2011 at 12:54 am

Also. Happy 101st scene! i think i’m the first to say that. woo-hoo! :D

Pocalypselove0001 on July 10, 2011 at 12:57 am

Awesome job on everything joe :D

Pocalypselove0001 on July 10, 2011 at 12:57 am

Joe, if you can’t continue doing the comic some day, let the job to the man who you think perfect for this great job(or teach your son to do it when he grows up)

Erik on July 10, 2011 at 2:32 am

on the subject of hibrids

plant + machine = photo-synthetic

George lutech on July 10, 2011 at 3:10 am

I am sorry about that f***ing mistake. I did not read the whole page. Congrats to you, Dagtzer for coming up with brilliant names. Oh, and hello there Mr Erik.

Nick on July 10, 2011 at 4:01 am

Joe i just wanted to comment on ur webiste.
it has gotten pretty famous.
so congrats on that.
and iff u take the ideas of the readers u can make pretty much a lot of things.
and good luck on all ur future work.

jeftai on July 10, 2011 at 4:48 am

wo i dont see 3 episodes but i like that beacause when i see it is like a large episode every time is getting interesting and awesome and i think that why bernie did not kill greogory o how it calls and stel his armory so he can kill every robot or control it ok yust some ideas i know that you dont copy any idea from the fans beacause for the epiodes to be sourprize but try to figure something like that i dont speak well english beacausew i speak spanish but i have learnt a lot of englis to point your awesome

oscar3000 on July 10, 2011 at 5:01 am

and i think that scott is to shy why he dont share the secret with them from start for killing his father (if that was my father i would kill him for being honest)

oscar3000 on July 10, 2011 at 5:04 am

I think that Joe (author) should continue with inner Joe and Rosa’s story soon because i want to see what happens to Rosa after she was such a Bitch.

MrHappy on July 10, 2011 at 7:32 am

I say another one or two more scenes with Bernie and the gang, at least

Pocalypselove0001 on July 10, 2011 at 9:22 am

To be honest, I also don’t think gregory is evil.He may just be a machine hacker that uses machines to kill zombies,and is trying to set up annika with scott.He still hasextreme measures though.can’t argue with that.

PerfectlySteamedTie on July 10, 2011 at 10:19 am

I for one am somewhat surprised that I seem to have gotten my guess right but I’m still waiting for when Joe pulls something completely unexspected out of his hat as always also @ Edward All great things take time.

eric on July 10, 2011 at 12:04 pm
