It’s Not the Heat, It’s the Humidity 06/21/2011

by Joe

“The air is so dewy-sweet you don’t even have to lick the stamps.” – Newman

It is so incredibly humid here in the Kanto region, I always feel like I’m sweating. It’s a terrible feeling and my 5-month-old doesn’t like it much, either. Cue the uncomfortable cries!

Japan’s conserving power this summer, to cope with dropping power output. So, malls and other public places are going to cut down on the air-conditioning. Ooh boy, good luck to us. Good news for the high school and college boys, I guess! :D

Enjoy Scene 8 – “Wrong Turn”!

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

Those Zombies sound a lot like cows.

Finally some plant action! :D
As naive as it may seem, I have to side with Joe on this one – Bernie and Jess wouldn’t be able to do much without their suits or guns (But I suppose few ordinary people could anyway)
Great comic as usual, keep up the good work and hope it doesn’t get too humid!

Bill on June 21, 2011 at 6:40 pm

@Razorhead – Haha! Now all I can think is cows :D

Joe on June 21, 2011 at 7:05 pm

“Finally some plant action! :D”
Is it just me, or did that sound the slightest bit wrong? It could be the fact that it’s 5 AM, but… *eyeroll*

Willy on June 21, 2011 at 7:45 pm

is that the Plant Invasion???? i guess not… :D

Shockboy4 on June 21, 2011 at 8:13 pm

@Shockboy4 – maybe…. i just want the war started!

War-Addict on June 21, 2011 at 8:14 pm

Zombie Killer on June 21, 2011 at 10:47 pm

Why don’t they just search the houses for a flamethrower or a torch?

Zombie Killer on June 21, 2011 at 10:48 pm

rignt now im just wrting in the charecters im still working on the plot i apreciate any help you guys can give me

me on June 21, 2011 at 10:50 pm

uh wouldi go to the writers room for help or could joe make a new forum for me and people like me

me on June 21, 2011 at 10:57 pm

@me – Feel free to use the Writers’ Room! :D

Joe on June 21, 2011 at 10:58 pm

Okay, ya know what? At some point, Either Joe (via mind power) or Doc (via mad science) has to take control of zombies and fling a horde at the plants.

And then we have a reference. Spudow.

Delta Pangaea on June 21, 2011 at 11:31 pm

please check out my forum in writers room and give what you think would help the story and what you think of it so far

writingbook on June 21, 2011 at 11:35 pm

@Joe you forgot the Unmarried Men, and Lesbians ;3

Anonymous_Jr on June 22, 2011 at 12:35 am

“Pff there just giant plants and weeds” BOOM! BOOM! BOOOM! “what the heck was tha* yeah lets go the other way!”


lurker on June 22, 2011 at 1:31 am

joe if you have any free time can you help me with my book story thing

writingbook on June 22, 2011 at 1:47 am

OMG, a Giant Tree!!! with wierd bulb things growing from it and falling on the ground. And I agree with Delta, we gota see some form of Pocalyptic battle between 2 hordes of monsters.

Leviticus on June 22, 2011 at 6:13 am

I think it should be 3 way, plants, mutants, and a very very very large mass of zombies, and maybe throw in a few survivors and vampires into the mix just for the heck of it, maybe even one in power armor.

lukesf on June 22, 2011 at 7:11 am

I just thought of something that could appear later. Hint 1: Joe already made a refence to this game. Hint 2: SSSSSSSSS… BOOM!

Nick on June 22, 2011 at 7:50 am

Click my website if you don’t know.

Nick on June 22, 2011 at 7:52 am

It’s the same way here in Tennessee, I know how awful it is with 100 degree (I think that’d be about 37 degrees in Celsius?) heat while the air almost saturated with water. Good luck.

Merostomata on June 22, 2011 at 11:35 am

I think Joe and subconscious Joe should meet in the deem world as two separate entitys, like having two Joe’s walking arowned in the dream world. THEN THEY COULD HAVE AN EGO FIGHT!

lemon4384 on June 22, 2011 at 12:55 pm

well from what i’ve read of the comic, it’s o.k. would have been better if the main charecter wasn’t such a d***. I mean this could have been a good Serious comic. you had nice art style, a great story and senerio, that you kind of ruined trying to make it funny. like I said it’s okay as it is, but I think it had more potentail than an apocalypse themed comidy. but hay, that’s the way you wanted it, and seems to have gathered a good fan base. so good job so far.

zero95lucky on June 22, 2011 at 7:49 pm

I like Joe’s outburst. He’s right you know; unlike Bernie and Jess, he doesn’t need fancy suits and weapons to get the job done, he could’ve survived fine on his own had he never met them.

Heck, subconscious Joe is even MORE powerful, so imagine if he unlocked those powers! He rivaled an elder vampire, and that’s no joke. So I hope he gets a little more respect from both the readers and the populace.

Acadian Bacon on June 22, 2011 at 11:03 pm

Yet another apocalypse scenario in which the pyro would be a valuable ally…

Aethrys on June 23, 2011 at 12:14 am

ah but you forget there are species of plant that have become accustomed to areas with habitual fires (probably why the machines haven’t done that yet against the plants), also the heat would attract machines
on a side note:
whoaaat? plants? zombies? omigosh that could be an awesome game, I’ll call it
“Plants Fighting Zombies” I am such a genius

hyperboy on June 23, 2011 at 11:25 am
