…What? you know it’s gonna happen.

Also, Other-Joe? Scrufflebeck could still be Powerpaw, like Joe is Powerfist. One more reason to put a dog in a suit.

Delta Pangaea on April 14, 2011 at 4:40 pm

^^^^^^^What he said, PowerPaw sounds amazazing!!!

Matthew on April 14, 2011 at 5:05 pm

Rusty just seems like one of those people who are born to be hated and pitied by their peers.
And I kinda want to slap the kid too.(is that bad?)
The end of this makes me wish you updated every day.

Eastar on April 14, 2011 at 5:17 pm

P.S. Pick me, pick me, pick me I want to play

Eastar on April 14, 2011 at 5:18 pm

A vampire. But why is it alone?

Anon on April 14, 2011 at 7:12 pm

@Anon- Maybe it’s Rosa!

Draconita on April 14, 2011 at 9:35 pm

@Anon- some vampires can be solitary can’t they? But I don’t think its rosa remember shes a zompire not a vampire. But I like the kid’s response to why he isn’t bleeding. Plus everyone once had a superhero they looked up to didn’t they? But I think Joe is going to have to fight that other part someday plus I think Rosa may be mentioned soon or we will get to see her perhaps.

sykes on April 14, 2011 at 10:05 pm

um watched it again and there is a chance that it could be rosa or one of the vampires that fled when harry showed up.

sykes on April 14, 2011 at 10:08 pm

yuo should really make a mindcraft game

okmai118 on April 14, 2011 at 10:45 pm

sorry misspelled name

okami118 on April 14, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Nah. I think if it was Rosa then Joe would have recognized her voice. :\ Not sure, but thats what I think.

Willy on April 15, 2011 at 3:43 am

Rusty’s a dick, but I hope he lives. Why? He’s the type of character I seem to like despite how much of a douche he is.

Here’s a vote for Rusty to live.

George on April 15, 2011 at 4:32 am

@Willy- Actually Joe did say that the voice sounded familiar thats why he asked inner-Joe, besides he only met Rosa once and he’s a little dense to put two and two together

SpiritOfAdventure on April 15, 2011 at 6:30 am

lol!!!!! Classic!

“I’m you and I don’t even like you”

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on April 15, 2011 at 8:44 am

I think that vampire is a whole new character, unless this is a flash back.
The vampire looks like a man and he is not in any way a zompire ( He looks like a normal human if you dont count the lust for blood :P ) Also would a zompire want blood or brains? Always wondered that….

Overload on April 15, 2011 at 11:56 am

@Overload Likely both, though I’m pretty sure that zombies need liver also, along with flesh in general (maybe a replacement limb or two also).

lukesf on April 15, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Joe you need some hunters in there a group of about 5 with heaps of weapons and some sort of wagon to carry them if one if in pain!

mutant hunter on April 15, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Hey, just read this through. Great read, though, I find Joe pretty unsympathetic as a protagonist. But I like every other character in here, so I’ll be following this comic(if that’s what I can call it?) from here on out. Thanks for the great read!

Locke on April 15, 2011 at 1:15 pm

@Spirit- Actually, they met twice. Remember she also called out to him in the dream world. but still… if he recognized the voice as something familiar, you would think he would be able to tack it down as Rosa’s voice, seeing as he’s currently obsessed with finding her. I guess because he did say the voice sounded familiar, that does narrow the field of suspects a bit. But Rosa’s hair is a brown color. And becoming a vampire doesn’t automatically make their hair black. A lot of Vampire characters have had brown hair. Also, keep in mind Rosa was taken as a prisoner. I doubt she would be allowed to roam about on her own searching for blood. I can keep piling up the evidence if I need to. Theres PLENTY more. Trust me. Keep in mind, we still don’t know much about Joe’s pre-coma life. This vampire could be a member of his family or something. (Beats making them Zombies or Mutants, I guess.)

Still… I suppose the possibility of the vampire being Rosa is still there. But do I think it’s likely? Not really…

Willy on April 15, 2011 at 4:46 pm

hes not a vampire as he doesnt mind going out in daylight. hes a warewolf or some kind of mutant, ide put money onit (the guy in the brown robes that is).

cuse on April 15, 2011 at 7:14 pm

oh and last time he showed up (in town) joe alergies started playing up, so we can assume that whatever he is alergic to…that guy in teh brown robes is…dogs maybe? i know he has a plant dog, but plat dogs have no fur, not like a warewolf :)

cuse on April 15, 2011 at 7:15 pm

@will you need to go back a few episodes and see where Cross told him that she was dead. Why you ask cause she managed to escape from them, so it could be her, but also the vampire was hiding in the shadows too so her could still be brown mind you. But point still stands it can be rosa, maybe woman turn into zompires less creepy? Or it could be a vampire that ran off when Joe went darkside and was beating the crap out of the elder.

sykes on April 16, 2011 at 12:35 am

@Sykes- I have been going back episodes. Keep in mind she would be a Zombie-Vampire. Both of which are technically dead. The debate as to whether Zombies and Vampires can be considered ‘alive’ is a topic for another time though. Also, at the end of that part of the scene, the shadows lift to reveal that the vampires hair is… surprise, still black. I never said it couldn’t somehow be Rosa… it’s fiction. Things can always turn out to be other things that you don’t expect them to be. But that doesn’t mean it always will. This vampire isn’t a zompire. There’s nothing to distinguish it from your normal every-day vampire. We don’t even know that it is a woman. Thats been assumed since people originally assumed it could be Rosa. In fact, it almost appears to suggest a black hooded sweatshirt. Hard to tell the way the sprite is behind the boxes. Could it be Rosa? Sure. Why not? Would it make sense? Not really. Not without another scene to explain how she changed her hair/why she had to change clothes/whatever and how she doesn’t look like crap. Am I being kind of insistent that it isn’t Rosa? Yeah. Now I am. I’m pretty confident too.
