Goodbye, Chapter Four and New Incentive! 08/02/2011

by Joe

Another chapter in the books! :D I got a lot of ideas from all of you as this chapter progressed, so please keep them coming via the forums, comments, e-mails, etc.! Sometimes my original story gets altered or even completely thrown away after reading your theories and ideas :D

Chapter 5 coming up!

Enjoy Chapter 4’s Summary – “Blocky”! This one was a lot of fun to make :D

Oh, and I put up a new incentive on TopWebComics! Please continue to vote and get yourself a Cubert wallpaper! :D Thank you for voting everyday!

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

Give Scrufflebeck a good home by buying a Scrufflebeck keychain! They’re now available for CDN$10 in the store :D Thanks for your support!

(Can you believe it’s August already? The Pocalypse is almost 10 months old!)

That was hilarious though.
Cubert is a comedy genius.

Muffins on August 2, 2011 at 4:49 pm

Well damn. Block people are creepers.

Delta Pangaea on August 2, 2011 at 4:50 pm

Real Joe, can you do something to discourage this “first” nonsense?

Jayd on August 2, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Cubert is now my desktop :-)

Boo you! XD

DramaNoMore on August 2, 2011 at 6:08 pm

no. why would he do that? hmm?!
its just a bit of healthy competition and a bit-o fun.

hypnokrit on August 2, 2011 at 7:10 pm

Real Joe, can you do something to discourage this “first” nonsense?

defuse on August 2, 2011 at 9:31 pm

If you are the first commenter and all you leave is “FIRST,” then you aren’t really the first commenter, are you? It’s just pointless…nobody cares.

Jordan on August 2, 2011 at 9:47 pm

@Jayd & defuse & Jordan – They’re not breaking any rules (not that I’ve written any :D) and I believe in free speech, but, yes, stating “First!” when you’re not the first commenter is indeed pointless :D So! I’m not going to discourage the “Firsts”, but, from now on, I’m going to delete the “First” comments that aren’t actually first. However, if a comment contains more meaningful dialogue than just “First!”, I won’t delete it :D I’ll be posting this message along with the next update, too!

Joe on August 2, 2011 at 9:54 pm

I have a feeling Stinger will be an important object in the Robot city Chapter

Chris on August 2, 2011 at 10:02 pm

Joe will you make minecraft skins of all your characters? Please

ken2666 on August 2, 2011 at 11:30 pm

Top priority for resident skin-makers: A Cubert Creeper skin :P

Snerky on August 3, 2011 at 12:50 am

haha! you win

frida on August 3, 2011 at 1:17 am

I wonder if Joe is going to try digging his way out. Or maybe he’ll recreate New Hammerston and everyone in it in block form, and rule it as a king? He’d probably amuse himself by using Block Bernie and Block Jess as servants, and marry block Rosa. He’d be doing nothing for his mental stability, and I’d imagine he would go crazy in about three days.

Aethrys on August 3, 2011 at 1:48 am

Although, he already seems to be hearing voices…

Aethrys on August 3, 2011 at 1:52 am

I wouldn’t worry too much about Cubert. He’ll just respawn at the starting area, right? Right?

Blade on August 3, 2011 at 2:00 am

Hmm… Joe makes the world in block form and creates a trap for when innerJoe comes her becomes trapped in the block world. Then, when Joe is about to jump back into his body, Cubert takes over his body just like InnerJoe did, leaving both Inner and OuterJoe in Block world for bonding and punishment alike…

How about this theory?

NeoWarrior on August 3, 2011 at 4:14 am

Then, in the real world, Cubert and Harry have a buttler off to see who’s the better buttler…?

NeoWarrior on August 3, 2011 at 4:16 am

Joe should be a bit happy with his situation. As I remember he wanted to be the only living person in the world when the pocalypse started and now he is the only living person in his very own mind world. So he could just say: “No more pants. I can pee anywhere.”

Tschipi on August 3, 2011 at 5:34 am

He’s far too proud for that, Tschipi. ;)

I hope Cubert will be back, and that we’ll see that he can speak and is just faking not being able to speak. :p Like that, just like the two other Joe, he’s a bastard plotting against others ! GWAHAHA !

Dairadh on August 3, 2011 at 5:41 am

I think Cubert just whispers instead of talking out loud (would explain why Joe could understand him. That or psychic powers)

sh4d0wfl4re on August 3, 2011 at 5:47 am

I’m gonna make a few Pocalypse skins right now
I’ll upload them, too

Llama118 on August 3, 2011 at 5:56 am

hang on… if inner joe moderated outer joe’s powers
would that mean outer joe would be easier to kill because outer joe is now the bodie’d joe and he has to moderate both?

hypnokrit on August 3, 2011 at 8:40 am

omg block jeo is awesome

tyler on August 3, 2011 at 9:58 am

Hooray for new chapters!! You never leave anything resolved I notice, its a very good strategy to make sure you always have room for the next installment whether planned or otherwise. Legendary work Author Joe!

Also hooray responsibility!

SpiritOfAdventure on August 3, 2011 at 11:20 am

By the way congrats on getting into the top 50 of topwebcomics.com

SpiritOfAdventure on August 3, 2011 at 11:22 am

@SpiritOfAdventure – Thanks! It’s all thanks to all of you! :D

Joe on August 3, 2011 at 12:24 pm

Found this webcomic(?) yesterday and couldn’t stop reading (took an all-nighter).
While it is true that the sleep deprivation makes me a little sentimental, I just have to say that this animated comic(?) isn’t only one of the best comics I know, but for it’s original style and buildup, a true work of art.
(I even like all the characters (except the child of course), its really rare to see such a good cast of haracters)
Well good night!

nroejb on August 3, 2011 at 1:56 pm

@nroejb – Thanks for reading and sleep well! :D

Joe on August 3, 2011 at 1:57 pm

I guess that Blocky got Creeped out by Joe’s jokes

death13a on August 3, 2011 at 4:12 pm

why is there some porn ad with a blue girl Joe I didn’t think you were like that…

spike on August 3, 2011 at 5:14 pm


spike on August 3, 2011 at 5:15 pm

I want a minecraft scrufflebeck wolf! I want an army of them :P

ken2666 on August 3, 2011 at 10:37 pm

i like how cubert is like an animal or something that joe can only understand, probably joe created cubert is the reason. thumbs up be me XD cuberts jokes are the bomb! get it?

Decifer on August 4, 2011 at 4:16 am

Thanks for TP Joe,without this,my life would make me pissed sometimes cause of those youtube trolls.Glad to relieve myself with this.So,Chapter 1 was about Trying to get to new hammerston,Chapter 2 was a mission against the vampires,chapter 3 showed in new survivors,chapter 4 was both Bernie Joe and Jess splitting up and getting into trouble.Chapter might be all about rescueing greybane.

Edward on August 4, 2011 at 10:53 am

Other Joe, if Joe (what?) is stuck in the Dreamworld than how does he know about everything that happened?
