He Can Hold Your Keys, Too! | July 16, 2011

by Joe

I’ve gotten a lot of interest for the Scrufflebeck keychains! :D If I started making more, would enough people be interested in buying them? I’m thinking CDN$10, which will include shipping and a signed thank you note from me :D They are handcrafted by me, bead-by-bead! Please let me know :D

Enjoy Scene 19 – “The Plan”!

Please continue to vote! :D Bug’s sketch is still the incentive! Thank you for voting everyday!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook (check out our paper doll pictures! Send me your own pics, too!), Twitter and RSS, too!

Have a great weekend! :D

Well, it looks like we have our first literally unwilling hero character. At least Rusty is just trying to get to safety for himself, Annika, and Nathan, but Scott is completely different! Great job, Joe, can’t wait to see more!

~Mike

Oh, PS, if you’d like to name a character after me, that would be epicly cool! :D I would even be willing to give you personality snippets of myself so I could be a developed character! :)

I swear I still don’t understand this obsession with all this First bullshit. At least leave a damn comment.

*On topic* This was a really story heavy comic. I love it when we can get a lot of explaining down without taking 2 damn weeks.

I just know Bernie has a badass cyber voice when he’s in Arbiter. Honestly he’s one of the most intimidating characters right now.

I’m really surprised that the vamps have that kinda hardware to deal with machines. It’s really impressive. I wonder how well they deal with mutants and plants. Probably not very good on plants considering Scrufflebeck.

Hmmmm… I guess I actually feel bad for Gregory. He was tortured and forced into the blood harvesting, and the guilt eventually turned him insane.

The only truly evil characters in this story are the vampires. The machines, plants, and zombies have no concept of good or evil (except Scufflebeck, but he’s good), the mutants are just trying to survive, and the werewolf is a hero.

Even Cross is just greedy, selfish, and histrionic, and not so much evil.

Hey, long time reader, first time comment-er, love the comic so far, everything is great,the only thing i have a problem with is that i can’t go back, sometimes my mouse double clicks the next button and it skips comments, kinda anoying since i have to watch the whole comic again just to catch like 2 lines that i missed. Please fix it so we can go back, i’m sure i’m not the only one with this problem.
Thank you

Hmmmmmm the truth spills, nice, i think we should leave to Joe with the others in suspense! Like Harry Potter 7 p1. It would be great for ratings. I ofudn the game before the comic and i have been hooked ever since!

I think Scott was right to call Bernie a murdering bastard since he did get angry and shot his father several times after all. Yet I think this shows that Bernie is one for humanity and doesn’t care for vampires and I think there is a reason why. He has to have a deep hatred for them, I doubt it’s just cause they attacked the colony once in the past I think there is something else.

Oh, delicious, delicious plot! <3
I was super scared that Bernie was going to shoot Scott the entire time because of his huge gun. Yay for not shooting people!
I really loved this chapter. I love it when things get uncovered and stories get explained.

@Zach I agree with you on most vampires being evil in the story, but the machines are doing it for the sake of science and self preservation, the mutants are just trying to survive, and the zombies aren’t evil, they just want hugs.

Hey Joe there is a typo on the first flashback panel ‘atacked’ rather than ‘attacked’ is displayed but maybe that’s just the way scott pronounces it ;-)

First;

Awsome chapter.

Second;

I’d like to take a brief moment saying that the choices we make really do have a big impact on our futures.

Think about it.

Exactly 23 panels ago, had Bernie tried to follow the machine, the chances of getting caught would have been extremely high. Thereore, everything that happened at that house might have been done without Bernie, and the three survivors would have found the “crops”. And the past scene might have played out differently.

So by not following the machine, Bernie got a weapon that not only stops the machines, but can make the machines their allies as well.

Let’s try to survive the pocalypse together.

Ooowaaaah explanationzzzz

First of all: POOR SCOTT. I CRY FOR YOU. But you have to be honest, your dad may be better off dead than insane. It sucks bigtime but it is the Pocalypse. x.x

And I can’t blame Bernie for being a hard-ass. Someone has to really. Not the kind of jerky hard-ass like greenshirt guy who only thinks of himself, but a hardass who can protect a community so humanity can keep on living.

When Scott was about to tell the story, he screen went black before switching to the yellowish background. I was think “WTF! STUPID CLIFFHANGERS!” then i was like oh.

I don’t know. While I admit Gregory deserved to die, telling someone you will spare them, and then outright killing them just doesn’t sit well with me. Is it bad it is the merciless strike that bothers me and not the repeated gunshots themselves?

Will Scott help Bernie and rescue Greybane? What will come of Joe and Rosa? And will Bernie save the colony in time? Stay tuned for next week’s premier of The Pocalypse: Chapter 4; Scene 20!

@Raging Reaver I know what Bernie did was back handed, but it makes me wonder what Bernie meant by “I will heal your wounds.”
Maybe he meant the wounds Gregory caused, not the ones that were inflicted upon him….
…… Still cruel though.
