Busy News Day(s)! 05/03/2011

by Joe

I’m sure everyone’s heard that a certain terrorist leader was taken out by a “U.S. military asset”. How cool does that sound, by the way: “I am a U.S. military asset.” Anyways, I hope that this victory against terrorism brings the world closer to an overall feeling of peace and security and that the families affected by 9/11 feel that justice has been done. A lot of people are saying that one man’s death isn’t going to make a difference, but I believe that this accomplishment is definitely a step forward.

On the Canadian front (for all of my Canadian readers :) ), elections are over and it looks like our notorious Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, is still our Prime Minister. I’m not big on politics, but it seems that everyone I know is upset about this. Being a Canadian outside of Canada and out of the loop, I’m not sure what to expect when I get back to the homeland!

Well, that’s about enough of non-Pocalypse news :D I didn’t think that the “Is it Rosa?” discussion would attract so many theories and speculation! I hope today’s scene clears some things up! I also hope it creates more questions and speculation ;)

Enjoy Scene 17 – “Is it She?”!

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

@Willy Called it

Yoinkinator on May 3, 2011 at 2:33 pm

Well Joe, mind explaining how the Zompire virus transmitted like that?

lukesf on May 3, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Meh… I still wouldn’t exactly say anyone called this exactly… besides… something’s still fishy. I’ve already stated my theory on how Rosa would be a Vampire and not a Zombie-Vampire (Even though I did state that I didn’t think it was her at all)… but now I’m not so sure. I think there might be another little twist in the storyline here that some people aren’t seeing. I really don’t feel like explaining it again right now… besides, I’m starting to think we need a theorizing debate thread as opposed to doing it here. Especially the most pressing “Taco” theory.

Willy on May 3, 2011 at 2:44 pm

she is a zompire but not disfigured thats all!

mutant hunter on May 3, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Alas, beauty never perishes, not even when you’re turned into a zompire.

I would like this to not be Rosa, as that demonstrates inconsistency within the storyline. I watched it again and clearly it’s hinting at something I don’t get.

Polarwarrior on May 3, 2011 at 3:01 pm

wow i gues zompires dont spread normal bhut only half
and no mutant..its vampire..if she zombie to she eat them not drain em of blood
but still…wtf?
zompire+human=vampire?? how
or is it 50-50 like
is that it or is vampire part more dominant?
but either way love to see rustys face when he sees a plant puppy and a person in robot suit greet him >.> i wanda what he will do

scavenger on May 3, 2011 at 3:02 pm

maybe its Just a vampire faking to be rosa?

Mikado on May 3, 2011 at 3:15 pm

What. What…No way. NO WAY! How can this be? Oh well, I think it’s better than having a DISFIGURED ASS FACE. I hate you Joe. I hate yooouuuu.

Anon on May 3, 2011 at 4:29 pm

uh, where did she get the hoodie?

Eastar on May 3, 2011 at 4:31 pm


Riou on May 3, 2011 at 4:35 pm

It’s so twisty!

Sir Bouncealot on May 3, 2011 at 5:35 pm

…Well, one possibility is that she was immune to the zombie virus in the first place, so only the vampire part transferred over. That, or the cowl she is wearing is hiding the the marring of her visage.

Raging Reaver on May 3, 2011 at 8:04 pm

Guys, she’s not a vampire.

She’s clearly a female hunter. See the hoodie?

Aethrys on May 4, 2011 at 12:18 am

Actually I like the theory that Rosa is a Zompire but diluted enough that with her face covered in a hoodie she just looks very pale like a Vampire but on a closer look she has some of the rot from the zombie aspect and we just haven’t had a closer look yet.
Guess I’m likely wrong about it not being Rosa, oh well. (maybe it’s someone else from town and we’re being thrown for a loop, but meh)

sh4d0wfl4re on May 4, 2011 at 3:23 am

Is it just me, or does every single episode end in a cliffhanger, save for the final ones of a chapter?
At any rate, it really keeps you looking.

Chaotick on May 4, 2011 at 3:24 am

i new it it was awesome i predicted it would be good

niko on May 4, 2011 at 4:42 am

It seems Rosa is a pure vampire for now, as a werewolf would easily notice if she were a zompyre… I already stated that vampirism diminishes with each succesive descendant of it’s curse and that vampirism and zombism have become the same thing with both powers and weaknesses…

NeoWarrior on May 4, 2011 at 4:52 am

I agree with mutant hunter, it has to be Rosa not too many people know Joe and like others have said its more likely that she just doesn’t look as grotesque either because she’s female or because of the hood
of course if you go by Anne Rice’s version of vampire people become more beautiful when they become vampires

SpiritOfAdventure on May 4, 2011 at 5:02 am

i think i dont like you anymore joe this is cold

ryan on May 4, 2011 at 5:27 am

Suddenly I don’t understand anything

Snerky on May 4, 2011 at 8:35 am

I think I called it. First to post that I thought it was Rosa soooo yeaaaah…..

Matthew on May 4, 2011 at 10:22 am

Just because you said it doesn’t make it a fact. I’ve already stated with everything I’ve said that it actually just my observations of MOST things involving Vampires and Zombies.
There isn’t any evidence to suggest that Vampirism diminishes with each passing of the trait. Actually, even if there WAS an indication of this, it would really be attributed to the fact that Vampires absorb the abilities of the people they bite, so of course a Vampire fresh off the bite is going to be weaker than the person who bit it and probably 30 others.

Willy on May 4, 2011 at 2:09 pm

You would think Joe would be able to tell who it was when he HAD HER RIGHT IN FRONT O F HIM! And wouldnt you be able to tell from the body shape? :S

Overload on May 4, 2011 at 8:19 pm

@Willy- Vampire”Lords” are those vampires that create other vampires by injecting them with a portion of their powers so as to control the newborns as minions->this is from legends not from me

Furthermore, Andrius has already demonstrated his control over Cross as stated in the just mentioned relationship of Lord+Minion

NeoWarrior on May 4, 2011 at 10:43 pm

You can add another Canadian to your list of folk who aren’t happy about his re-election.

kim jo-el on May 5, 2011 at 12:42 am
