Happy Belated! 10/16/2012

by Joe

The Pocalypse turned 2 on October 10th and I completely forgot! Time surely does fly and it really doesn’t feel like two years :D

Thank you all for the continued support over the years and here’s to many, many more years of The Pocalypse!

Speaking of support (nice segway, eh) please continue to vote for Green Pixel 5 times DAILY for the StartOff competition! http://startoff.ca/vote As I write this, we’re in 4th place and 1st-4th are relatively close. Help us move up! You may have noticed the link button in the scene so feel free to use that link too. Thank you for your votes and for letting all your friends know about voting! If every single The Pocalypse reader voted 5 times right now, Green Pixel would be overwhelmingly in 1st place and I don’t think we would drop from that spot! :D

Oh, and if you live in Hamilton, you may get a kick out of this: http://www.greenpixel.ca/startoff/ :D

Also, let’s name the Plant Brain Ball thing! Send me your name ideas and we’ll decide on the final name like we decided for Scrufflebeck’s. I’ll choose my favourite 5 names and then we’ll have a vote in the forums to choose the best one :D Thanks and can’t wait to hear your ideas!

Enjoy Scene 2 – “Oh… You”!

Who can you find in the Hammerston suburbs? Vote to see! Please vote for The Pocalypse here everyday! (Powerfist, Greybane, Rosa, Cross, Stinger, Jake, Obliteration, and Doc are in this one!) I’m going to try coming up with a new incentive every update (or every few updates) :D Thank you for voting!

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

I try to vote whenever I can, good luck you guys!

Typo “Good to see you that you’re safe” should either be good to see you AND that your safe or just good to see that your safe,it sounds odd otherwise.

Name for ball plant thingy ermm…. Scruffleball? Wrecking Ball? Thunderball? Dave? Trevor? Insertnamehere?

First? i feel dirty….

Wayne Mangham on October 16, 2012 at 4:17 pm

@Siveon – Thank you! :D
@Wayne Mangham – Thanks for the catch! Fixed! This is what happens when I write without a script haha :D

robert on October 16, 2012 at 4:29 pm

I’m voting for you every time I watch one of your animations.
Hopefully, that should motivate you to do more! Mouhahahahahahaha!!!!!

HarrowedMind on October 16, 2012 at 4:35 pm

@HarrowedMind – Haha! ;D Thanks for voting!

Joe on October 16, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Plant attempt at naming itself: @&$^8%@*L
Joe’s attempt: Plorg -> Plant+Orb
more when I think of them

NeoWarrior on October 16, 2012 at 5:12 pm

13 more votes until we take the #3 spot on startOff, so very, very close!

sh4d0wfl4re on October 16, 2012 at 6:23 pm

Awe man, joe’s dance never gets old! Simple, yet mesmerizing.

Decifer on October 16, 2012 at 7:18 pm

@Decifer I agree!

illeatyourself on October 16, 2012 at 8:36 pm

Alright personally I think Joe’s Happy Dance needs its own goofy theme song to go with it. Maybe like the Party Rock Anthem or something. Or Gangnam style. XD In other news, when the night stalker burst through Bernie’s door with his light on, I immediately imagined Bernie saying “AAH MY EYES TURN THAT FLASHLIGHT OFF YOU DON’T NEED IT IN A LIT ROOM!” XD And I can see things turning out just partially badly. Now I’m just wondering when our nightstalker friend (the only one with a dialogue profile and whose name escapes me) becomes his own form of Bada**, because it seems a lot of the lesser key characters are getting that kind of status at some point. :P

illeatyourself on October 16, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Call it Lilly. This comic needs more chicks, and it’s also a plant… so… y’know…

Willy on October 16, 2012 at 8:48 pm

‘Pan’, Greek god of nature. Or ‘Artemis’ I guess. Is a sentient plant ball male or female? Truly, this is the greatest philosophical debate that plagues humanity.

CalicoZack on October 16, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Initiate name voting spree thing? HUZZAH!! I, personally, think it looks like a Jebediah, but that’s just my crazy opinion XD @illeatyourself, I agree 100%; Joe’s happy dance deserves its own theme song!! Something upbeat with a lot of UNCE to it! Anyway, loved this scene, can’t wait for the next one! I’ll keep on voting every day-looking for a positive finish to the competition!!

NarniaNerd on October 16, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Happy Birthday Pocalypse, here’s to a long, fulfilling story.

Casimir on October 16, 2012 at 11:09 pm

I saw “Gorb” and “Pan”, and both of those looked really good. But how about they simply call it “The Link”? This name plays on its mysterious nature, but also accurately describes its purpose.

Extraintelligence on October 17, 2012 at 12:31 am

Happy Birthday!!! May you have many more The Pocalypse!

Karu on October 17, 2012 at 12:35 am

How about ‘Bob’, Bob that Plant. :)

The Khan on October 17, 2012 at 1:11 am

What a coincidence. October 10th is Naruto’s birthday too.

Pseudonym_ on October 17, 2012 at 9:24 am

How about (I’m finding it difficult to think of a name that isn’t taken somewhere in the interweb) Gaia, The Plant Mother or The Conscious(ness).

Mzilla on October 17, 2012 at 11:06 am

Up to second place, lets keep him moving in the right direction!

CC on October 17, 2012 at 11:28 am

I toss in the name Probe.It… just feels right.Also Joe’s dance theme should be party boy theme(try youtube)
Also let the votes flow through you.

Dagzter on October 17, 2012 at 3:04 pm

@everyone so, i’ve got an idea, what if we (everyone) made a minecraft server that imitated new hammerston, the outside of new hammerston, the mindcraft world (which, if you hadn’t noticed souns a lot like minecraft) and everything else in the pocalypse world, it would be a very good fan project, so what do you think?

Dr.krillin on October 17, 2012 at 3:19 pm

you moved up to number 2!

Not going to say on October 17, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Thank you for the votes and name ideas, everyone! Keep ’em both coming! :D

Joe on October 17, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Got a new name from the humour i can see inside Comic Joes (not the irl one) mind.

Spongeball Plantpants.

Wayne Mangham on October 17, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Happy birthday Joe! :D

biperfuture on October 17, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Florence. That should be fitting for a plant.

Mr Comment on October 17, 2012 at 7:09 pm

YAY Green Pixel is in first for start off but sadly by only about 50 votes

MR HAPPY on October 17, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Bogdan on October 17, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Thank you all for getting us to #1! Help us stay there! :D http://startoff.ca/vote
Thank you for the birthday wishes, too! I’ll try to make next year’s celebration more exciting (if I remember it haha) :D

Joe on October 17, 2012 at 10:29 pm

FFUUUUUUUU!!! We were about 1000 votes below the person in front of us and now we’re coming first with 200 more post than the person below us. :)

The Khan on October 18, 2012 at 6:05 am

Over 200 votes ahead!

CC on October 18, 2012 at 9:14 am

Bill. thatls what it should be called. simply Bill.

Timstro59 on October 20, 2012 at 2:40 pm

I wonder… will the soldier be turned into a vampire or not and what to name the plant…Orion? Sunlion? Powerball? By the way @ Joe, Congratulations on pocalypse
‘s second anniversary. I have been here reading this since it started and have attracted many people to read this comic. I enjoy this comic so, keep on makin’ them Joe.:)

hiei on October 20, 2012 at 3:26 pm


Josh on October 20, 2012 at 6:30 pm

we’re again about 450 votes behind.

@Joe it seems, that you are getting giant amounts of votes when you put a scene up, so i would suggest to slow down just a little bit on the game and rather bring some small bonus scenes out to the community, in order to win this competition.

hatschi on October 21, 2012 at 6:05 am

… and now a moment of silence for Specialist Smyth

soap on October 21, 2012 at 6:30 pm

@hatschi The first 10 people win the competition, so we have no chance in heel of losing it anyway.

The Khan on October 22, 2012 at 1:05 am

Hell, I was meant to say hell. :P

The Khan on October 22, 2012 at 1:06 am

we are (not so) patiently awaiting the next episode :P or, i am at least.

Rasmus N on October 22, 2012 at 4:18 am

Glowstick! Bob the Plant Ball-Thingy! The Missing Link! Athena! Grass! Uh… GLOWBALL!
Just spitballin’ here, people.
Oh yeah, Ra! Snefru! Senemut! Remus! Planty the Potted Plant! Vegeta! I don’t know!
Sorry, overexcited.

Anna M. Hamilton on October 22, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Happy Birthday The Pocalypse!! I really like Athena and Pan for the plant ball’s name thing. Oooh, or Demeter!
