Chapter 7 Done! And What’s Your Size? 09/19/2012

by Joe

Hooray! I got the scene done! :D And it happens to be the end of Chapter 7!

Enjoy Scene 33 – “Joe’s Focus”!


So Sam has figured out how to unlock Joe’s powers and he, Joe, Arbiter, and Scrufflebeck are headed back to colony with an intelligent plant by their side. Will a plant-human alliance be possible? Do the plants have anything up their green sleeves? How will the machines react?

Rosa has blossomed into quite the menacing vampire and Doc is dead-set on figuring out why and how. Doc, Rosa, Aaron, Harry, and the Night Stalkers are headed back to the colony with a severely injured Jess in tow. How will they get Rosa into New Hammerston? What is giving her her amazing powers?

Greybane and Nick are out to look for Doc to answer Greybane’s questions. Nick just wants a life outside the colony but can he really handle the dangers that he may face?

Phillip’s family is ready to set sail. Little do they know, two deadly stowaways are hitching a ride…

Stay tuned for a quick chapter summary and for the beginning of Chapter 8! :D What is your favourite chapter summary format? The talk show set, the dream/block world set, or the machine mediator set? Please vote here in the forums and let me know so I can make the next one the majority favourite! :D

Roger on September 19, 2012 at 12:53 am

C: I like the way you do this stuff.

Ter on September 19, 2012 at 1:23 am

You should totally use the talk show set.
P.S I cant see my cursor in the text box

Aldous on September 19, 2012 at 1:26 am

ok..for gods sake…..is the girl with the black hair(cant rmeber names easily) joes sister????
if im correct ive seen several parts that have hinted such a sister brother kind of situation AND the fact that she met the membersof the team EXCEPT for joe which somehow he leaves right when she gets there basically….also..hehe pop….and legs cramping….seriously how did he get down there?

scavenger on September 19, 2012 at 1:34 am

Fuckin EPIC!

Bhum on September 19, 2012 at 2:18 am

“I have seen those blocks before!”
Hilarious q-:

EnterTheNameHere on September 19, 2012 at 2:29 am

I’ve been wondering if anyone else noticed phillip’s mother is one of sam’s alter egos.

robert on September 19, 2012 at 3:12 am

Well, obvious foreshadowing is obvious. Joe and that one girl are going to meet and turn out to be sibling and then Joe is going to go SSJ.

Jodka on September 19, 2012 at 3:17 am

author Joe. can you make a entry wherein the scenes from chapter 1 to 8 are combined to make a ‘movie’ like scene. of course it is not included in the count.

zur on September 19, 2012 at 5:36 am

Hells yea more Andrius~ >:3

Rawrsaurous on September 19, 2012 at 6:00 am

Joe, once again a great update. Cannot wait to see what you have in store for us in the coming chapter.

@Aldous: the cursor missing is because of the background color, exactly #7F7F7F. Same as the text select cursor.

Silverware on September 19, 2012 at 6:29 am

Sweet update Joe. (Oh lordy Werewolf vs Zombie Vampires)

Siveon on September 19, 2012 at 6:33 am

Way too many sister-innuendos in a single scene… That girl is DEFINITELY XXX Joe’s sister…

NeoWarrior on September 19, 2012 at 8:31 am

You’re running Google Analytics which reports window dimensions as the umtvp (ViewPort) parameter and screen dimensions as the umtsr (Screen Range [or similar]) parameter of the querystring sent to retrieve the web bug. You should be able to extract this information in a report on GA.

MrBester on September 19, 2012 at 9:36 am

@Scavenger. I get the feeling that like me you are seeing all the twists before they happen.Yes that girl was Blantaintly his sister. It will be good to see how that plays out.

bob on September 19, 2012 at 10:51 am

“Ah if only you had a younger sibling at the colony”…
Joe, seriously, when are you going to make Joe meet his sister?
Dont make us wait more! xDDDDDDD

Supaserrin on September 19, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Im guessing he got under there by crafting a mine,then minecrafting his way out again? Bad jokes i know but heres more,will the plant creatures “leaf” the colony in one piece of “sow the seeds” of destruction???

Also i’ve looked into the future it turns out Joe is in fact his own sister due to some messed up reason i cant fathom to explain or else i go cross eyed and my brain explodes,oh and scrufflebeck is his mother :) sorted.

Wayne Mangham on September 19, 2012 at 3:17 pm

I get the feeling that things are about to start coming together. ;)

illeatyourself on September 19, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Lol reading the text under the video and I saw “Green Sleeves” and immediately thought of the popular Christmas tune. XD

illeatyourself on September 19, 2012 at 3:45 pm

MOTHER OF CLIFFHANGERS!!!, you’ve got all set up for shocking moments,sam discovering and training joe’s powers, joe and his sister, bernie reacting at jesse’s injuries, rosa and joe’s thing, the love towards scrufflebeck that joe has, the doctor (don’t remember his name) and greybane’s alliance, plant-human alliance, the old vampire world, doc’s researches, it’s gonna be amazing.
one question, did you got all this planned since the beginning or just started and then made things up?

Dr.krillin on September 19, 2012 at 4:41 pm

eh… you know this is the beginning of a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG story if they’re talking about travelling to continents.

Decifer on September 19, 2012 at 6:33 pm

long story.. look forward for this!

Roger on September 19, 2012 at 11:27 pm

@Dr.Krillin if he did plan this out from the beginning, then joe is one creative man :)

Trynt33 on September 20, 2012 at 1:14 am

Must…Find..A way… to trick– uh, I mean bribe– CONVINCE, thats what I meant. Must find a way to CONVINCE the Author to add meh to the story! loljk
But if you have any openings I could take them off your hands maybe?

Pseudonym_ on September 20, 2012 at 9:51 am

@Pseudonym i would strongly suggest you reword that last sentence if i was you.

Preferably before all the dirty minded people start drawing you in a comic with Joe doing dirty things with these “openings”.

Wayne Mangham on September 20, 2012 at 12:43 pm

In the name of Peter Griffin “he said it, he said it.” “The pocalypse” strikes again.

shadowmonkey71 on September 20, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Not very subtle on the who “sister” thing… Ram it down our throats next time.

Onodera on September 20, 2012 at 5:31 pm

@shadowmonkey71 – Haha! “I must become Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.” :D
@Onodera – I have no idea what you’re talking about ;D

Joe on September 20, 2012 at 10:02 pm

@Joe it’s not as if everyone has been saying she is his sister for like eleven chapters

Not going to say on September 20, 2012 at 10:56 pm

next plot twist, andrius is bitten by greybane and is turned into a werezompire, then is captured by the machines and is turned into a android werezompire! :P

mouseman on September 21, 2012 at 12:39 am

@mouseman: and is then captured by the plants and turned into an ultimate lifeform that combines the strengths of all.

Then he gets squashed by a mind-crafted block when Joe finally realises he’s a bit of a dick.

MrBester on September 21, 2012 at 8:32 am

Loved the scene Joe. I hate to be the one to point this out but for the first couple of parts when Dr. Nick speaks he doesn’t have the lines under his eyes.

shalidar13 on September 21, 2012 at 11:23 am

Come on, Joe we all know that Annika is Joe’s sister, don’t make us wait anymore XD

biperfuture on September 21, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Am I the only one who thinks Samuel is having a weird fixation on Joe.

Bliss on September 21, 2012 at 7:28 pm

bliss, comic joe is another one of sams alter egos.

robert on September 22, 2012 at 7:29 am

author Joe. can you make a entry wherein the scenes from chapter 1 to 8 are combined to make a ‘movie’ like scene.

zur on September 22, 2012 at 7:37 am

Joe, you’ve been dangling the whole ‘Annika sister’ thing in front of me for almost a year (Can’t quite remember the date the first reference was made)
And every episode that a hint about their siblingness has been talked about I have posted a comment begging for the emotional release of this fact. I am near my tipping point Joe. I’m going crazy over here

Highcalibur10 on September 22, 2012 at 11:36 am

Hey Joe, what exactly do you use to make these. I’m (most likely) not going to run off with it and make a competing webcomic with it, I’m just kinda curious.

Pseudonym_ on September 22, 2012 at 11:39 am

@zur – I plan on doing just that one of these days :D
@Pseudonym_ – I use Adobe Photoshop for creating all the art and Adobe Flash for animating the scenes :D

Joe on September 22, 2012 at 11:45 am

Well, that means anika and joe are siblings, period.

Acrontus on September 22, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Just a little detail (’cause I’m that type of person), Bernie should definitely still pick up that unused missile. It’s not because machines have developed an active countermeasure since last time that it will forever be useless, especially if Doc gives it a look..
( Also, it’s kind of funny that people are talking about Joe going super sayan at the same time as Pan does the same in Dragon Ball Multiverse :P )

HarrowedMind on September 22, 2012 at 1:58 pm

is it to late to donate for the game your making? cause id like to donate a hundred when i got more money.

nick on September 22, 2012 at 8:27 pm

@HarrowedMind oh fuck, you also read dragonball-multiverse, very interesting, haven’t you saw me around there?

Dr.krillin on September 23, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Joe, it won’t load for me, it just sits at 0%.

The Khan on September 24, 2012 at 1:48 am

author joe, can you send me the video of joe hitting himself with a wooden plank? my Email is zurielarceno@yahoo.com

zur on September 24, 2012 at 6:23 am

@The Khan try to right click on the 0% and click play

Nathan on September 24, 2012 at 7:11 am

Thanks Nathan! That worked!

The Khan on September 24, 2012 at 4:34 pm

@shalidar13 – Thanks for the catch! Fixed! :D

Joe on September 25, 2012 at 1:10 pm

@Joe – That’s great!
