Bring on Chapter Three! 03/15/2011

by Joe

Ah, another chapter in the books. I’m excited about Chapter 3 because it’s almost like starting The Pocalypse all over again. Don’t worry, Joe and the crew aren’t going anywhere :D I’m going to switch gears and focus on a new group of survivors that don’t have the luxury of weaponized bio-suits, AI robot allies, and super powers.

So, here’s to an exciting Chapter 3 and to The Pocalypse being half a year old (5 days ago, I forgot :))!

Also, I’m hoping to be back in Canada in the summer and thats when Fan Expo is in Toronto! I want to get an Artist Alley booth, but I can’t afford it without your support :D I would greatly appreciate any donations towards that booth. No promises, but I would love to represent The Pocalypse at Fan Expo! If I don’t make it, please know that your donations are still very greatly appreciated and your support goes a long way :D

Is anyone going to Fan Expo this year? Once I’m back in North America, I hope to attend conventions. I’ve been to a few, but I’ve never been part of one. Debuting at Fan Expo would be awesome :D

Enjoy Chapter 2’s Summary – “Can I Say F*** on TV?”! If you’re disabling sound, the long pauses are for the audience laughs and cheers :D

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS, too!

And, please continue to vote! :D Arbiter’s sketch is still the incentive!

hehe, pretty nice for a recap… im still praying for everybody over there.

Something tells me that the announcerGuy will be baddly injured during one of the following shows… I HAVE to wonder about those new survivors though… Hopefully, they have real weapons, not fantasy…
Possible weapons:

Chapter 3 sounds cool.

@Neo: Technically the whole thought about the power suits and whatnot isn’t too far-fetched. They already have a system kinda like that but they aren’t as mobile.. but we definitely have not hit the age of robotic power suit yet. And the announcer guy was, I believe, supposed to be Conan O’Brian…. at least I’m pretty sure.

@Joe: Anyways, glad to hear you’re still safe Joe and everything. I’ve been watching the news on and off all weekend. After hearing about the reactors and stuff, I was wondering and hoping you’ve been well. Also, I didn’t know if you’d be able to get the updates up for a bit since I heard a lot of people have lost power and water over there.

@Joe I just watched both Chapter’s in one sitting I found your comic Via Side add in the Questionable content website, and I gotta say I’m really impressed at the idea of this comic it’s a wicked idea and the characters are bad-ass I look forward to chapter three. good luck in the future!

Greetings from the sunny islands of Trinidad and Tobago,my name is Monsieur Rov’age St Laurent…I have been following the news with regard to the earthquake and subsequent tsunami as well as the number of lives lost in the aftermath. I wish to extend an invite to Joe and his family, if you need somewhere new to live, you are more than welcome here.My adopted home (originally from St Bartholomew)has a thriving animation industry as well as many other sectors where you can be gainfully employed,we are a cosmopolitan nation, comprised of many races, creeds and colors where all are free to enjoy life to the fullest. If you need more information you can Google us

Rovage St Laurent on March 16, 2011 at 12:07 am

@Curator – Thank you :) On top of the earthquakes (yup, still feeling some), we now face a radiation scare. Rough times :(
@Tsumeken – We’ve had blackouts scheduled for the past two days, but we haven’t lost power yet. Looks like the community is heeding the power company’s request to conserve energy :)
@Darek – Thank you for reading and for letting me know that you came from QC! Good to know that the ads are working! :D
@hypnokrit – Yes, I can’t wait for the story to focus on plant monsters and where they live :D
@Rovage St Laurent – Um, are you serious? I would LOVE to -visit- Trinidad and Tobego, so I can’t imagine how awesome -living- there would be! You have definitely piqued the interest of the adventurer in me, so do you have any info or advice to give me? Thanks! :D

Joe on March 16, 2011 at 12:20 am

A Frenchman cannot lie Mon Ami, (unless it is to his wife about where he was last night…non!)I am serious, if you wish to see examples of our animation industry, you can look up Trinitoons (all one word) on Facebook, or check out the official Ministry of Tourism website at http://www.tourism.gov.tt, we would love to have you! Sorry you couldn’t have been here for Carnival, I thank my ancestors for leaving such a culture in this place! (ahhhh…THE WOMEN!!!…MON DIEU!)But i digress, as i said, all are welcome here, bring the wife & le petit bebe with you, come enjoy the most southerly isle in the Tropical Caribbean……Au revoir,Monsieur Joe!

Rovage St Laurent on March 16, 2011 at 1:01 am

Sweet new start! I am a of change, and by keeping Joe in the story, i have no problem with your new path. XD goodluck!

Makenna Ray Parker on March 16, 2011 at 2:28 am

I like the direction you’re going with the new chapter, we’ve seen the high tech, super power side, it’ll be interesting to see the watered down, average joe trying to make it through this pocalypse side

SpiritOfAdventure on March 16, 2011 at 4:31 am

Lots of awesome Joe.

Hope the radition from the expolding plant doesn’t head your way.

defuse on March 16, 2011 at 4:49 am

joe is u r still awesome and i cant wait for the new chapter.

mikelord356 on March 16, 2011 at 6:12 am

I think the next chapter might follow some of the RP characters.. or hopefully mention some of them. ^^

Squizzel on March 16, 2011 at 7:06 am

I’m hoping we run across Rosa again. Still would love to see what happened to her. Keep up the great work, Joe!

Zarthanon on March 16, 2011 at 8:56 am

well I was at Fan Expo last year, and I’ll try to be at it again, so yeah, I’ll say “hey! You’re that awesome guy that does the moving webcomic thing, awesome!” if I get the chance

ThatCanadianGuy on March 16, 2011 at 11:57 am

Heck, at this rate, I want to do a guest CHAPTER…

The Stick on March 16, 2011 at 10:06 pm

That’d be awesome to see you at FanExpo. This will be my third year going, and it’s always great to add to the list of “makers of comics I read that I’ve met.”

Sarcastastic on March 17, 2011 at 10:32 am

@Rovage St Laurent – Thanks for the info! :D
@defuse – Thank you :D So far, so good.
@ThatCanadianGuy & Sarcastastic – Great! I REALLY hope I can make it to Fan Expo :D
@The Stick – That would be awesome and quite a feat!
