Eight Down, Much, Much More to Go :D | September 10, 2014

by Joe

Well, I think that wraps up Chapter 8! FINALLY!! :D

I decided to end the chapter here for a few reasons:

1) The major story streams (Philip’s family and Andrius on a boat, Greybane and crew to a new colony, the rest of the characters back at New Hammerston, and Joe) are all now at a point where they need a new chapter start.

2) I want to leave this super dragged out chapter behind and try harder for a fresh start myself :D

3) The more immediate and fun reason: an entire story recap! I usually do a chapter recap after every chapter but this time I’m going to revisit Chapter 1 to 8 and do the entire story. I hope new and old readers enjoy the summary but it’s really more to remind myself about the overall story to tie up loose ends and avoid more continuity issues as we move to Chapter 9 :D

Enjoy Scene 26 – “Hopeless Shadow”!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter for updates!

Oh, I just realized I haven’t announced this yet: I have two kids now! Girl this time :D Her name is Emiliana Rose, she was born about 6 weeks ago, and if she could, I’m sure she’d say hello!

EDIT:

You heard the turtle! What’s your favourite moment? :D

Somn that kinda surprises me, even though I’ve just realized it, is that even though a month or longer can come between scenes Joe still hasn’t lost his edge. They’re still awesome!

Which reminds me, I have some people I need to tell about the new scene.

This scene was gold! And ideal as end of the chapter as well. I’m looking forward to see the story recap, I think we old readers need to refresh our memory as well :D (For example I can’t seem to remember who or what caused the fires we see in the last part of this scene in New Hammerstone… was it Victor when he faced the soldiers in Joe’s body perhaps?)

Also, congratulations for the baby! :D

Hmm, I’m so curious as to what happens next. Quite a sad chapter ending.
Also, I’m glad for the full story recap coming. Some of the details are getting fuzzy.

A contextual change makes sense. Good luck, Joe, I hope it helps you get back into gear. :)

Good luck with your kids, too!

Another great scene! :) by the way Joe, have you considered using patreon as a way to have some extra funds so we can have updates more frequently? :)

@Khayne: I see, thank you!

@Firanai: a few scenes ago Joe was considering that option, so he might still be willing to do it in the future, but he said he wants to see if he manages to get back to a regular schedule with the updates first.

She comes back as Raj the turtle. And then Joe, back to his “normal” self, wears Raj as a helmet, not knowing it is actually his sister

poor joe…somehow, i´m STILL hoping annika will come back somehow, though for the life of me i can´t say how…although….maybe the plants could do something? they surely seem to have quite a few aces up their leaves: first stopping that rocket which would have destroyed the entire colony, now they appear to do something to rosa that will make her imune to the sun, heck maybe even do photosynthesis so she won´t need blood anymore – thats my interpretation of that ‘sun is power’-statement – so who knows, maybe they can grow a leafy girl, using annika´s old body as fertilizer?

All of her hope and all of her love lie with all others and with Earth. Joe must not give up.

@WM28UK soooo… thats a vegepire? XD (though im pretty sure by definition a vampire cant be a vegetarian :x)

So, she’s been infected with dormant zombie virus, active vampire virus, received some power from blood of one of the most psionically advanced creature in the world and was fused with plants… It’s official. Annika is a reality-bending vambieplant.
@Khayne As far as I know, vegetarianism is not caused by fusing with a sentient plant, but if it is… We’re in bigger trouble than I thought. xD

WAIT… If she became vegetarian after fusing with a plant, wouldn’t that be cannibalism?

I’m finally caught up! I feel so, so bad for Joe. I think I cried when Annika died. Please keep working on this story! It’s so good! It’s hard to find good stuff like this.

As a continuation of my last comment because I needed more time to think, I really do hope Annika comes back. But it might not be likely, considering that would remove Joe’s entire reason to do whatever he needs to do, or motivation. We just gotta see what’s in store. As for the vambieplant, that’s pretty cool.

One more thing, I know I shouldn’t be really posting it here, but I’m really proud of it and wanted you guys to see! It’s my first piece of fan art for this webcomic and my first piece of fan art since July or June.

I’ve been asking about the other story arcs for a while now, but I completely forgot about the chapters! The prospect of many more new chapters is all kids of exciting, and so I’ll happily wait as long as we need. As always, great work!

Hai. Pretty cool topic, althought tbh, I liked it better when the updates were quicker XP

If you have plans done, maybe you could “share the workload” with somebody else? We all understand y’all’s busy now, with butts and cans and all, but co-arting would likely speed things up greatly :D

Also just curious, any update on the games fans paid for? Pretty much looking forward to it :D

Rock on!

Wow Joe. I know you’re busy, but update times are taking longer than what I expected.
Dang, here I thought I’d have a solid story well along the way by the time I pick it up again.
Guess it’s not quite there yet.
