Keep ‘Em Comin’! 11/27/2010

by Joe

Thanks for all the name suggestions, everyone! I have so many awesome ones to choose from. Keep them coming! :D

I’m going to cut off the name suggesting on Monday’s update and have the voting in the forums open for Wednesday’s update :) So, please join us in the forums!

Sorry about the filler! As Joe, err, I say in the comic, I’m working on something new for the battle scene that involves a bit of interaction. I’m not 100% sure I can do it, but that’s not going to stop me from trying! :D

Enjoy Filler Scene 2 (let’s consider Missed Comic 1 as Filler Scene 1 :) ) – “Ass-faced Raccoon”! It was fun to put myself in The Pocalypse world :D

Please continue to vote and nominate (if you think I deserve it)!

Are you looking for a ‘s’ name for Joe, like the other two?

Jordi on November 27, 2010 at 10:43 am

@ Jordi – Nope! Any name that you think will fit Joe is fine :D

Oh, and in the comic, Joe will ultimately bestow the name on himself :)

Joe on November 27, 2010 at 10:45 am

Ahh right, im thinking of somthing to go with the whole spilling thing he done… Tornado, Hurricane, SpinningJoe, TurnAround, RoundAbout, DizzyDots, KarateYellowBeltSpin, ect, lol, i quite like the last one.. :D

Jordi on November 27, 2010 at 10:57 am

Or even SillyBasterd…

Jordi on November 27, 2010 at 10:58 am

Now joe would that be a Racoon ass faced racoon
a human ass, ass faced racoon?

Eastar on November 27, 2010 at 11:38 am

Oh man, if it’s a spinning-based name it’s got to be Vortex

Grant on November 27, 2010 at 11:55 am


Centrifuge all the damn way.

A.J. on November 27, 2010 at 1:04 pm

@Eastar – Haha! Didn’t think of that! What does a raccoon’s ass look like? I wonder if there are references on the internet… oh, man some weird searches comin’ up, Google. :D

Joe on November 27, 2010 at 5:53 pm

Hey. I started reading the day you posted Episode four.
Now… Taking into account Joe’s personality and such, I think he’d probably go with “Awesome McCool” or, should you choose to include a nice little reference, he might pick the name “Sparta”
I’ll be keeping an eye out and suggest any new names that come to mind.

Kaz on November 27, 2010 at 7:52 pm

I think taking into account his pencahnce for vanity plus the fact he’s clearly a robot fetishist, he would call himself something like The Kickassatron.

Zephyr Skylark on November 27, 2010 at 8:16 pm

I’ve got an idea. How about AssFacedRaccoon?

Superemo on November 28, 2010 at 1:25 am

whirlygig, pinwheel, roundabout, deathspiral, dizzypunch are all good spin related names, though i wonder if joe could even spell some of those right XD

tWiCHY on November 28, 2010 at 3:06 am

The Joe-nator!

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on November 28, 2010 at 4:20 am

‘Joeronimo’ I doubt he’d be too fussed about the secret identity stuff.

Hillbo on November 28, 2010 at 4:43 am

What about Cyclotron? Spinning+science?

Grant on November 28, 2010 at 8:44 am

because he’s good at stairs

Torby on November 28, 2010 at 5:25 pm

Hey man, don’t feel like you HAVE to publish something when you can’t get around to it, I am sure people will understand. Most webcomic authors start off with unrealistic ideas like updating 3 or 4 days a week without fail and we all know that can’t always happen.

Kuehnau on November 28, 2010 at 10:25 pm

I hope you keep your promise to transform Joe, err… Joe!

Chilingsworth on November 29, 2010 at 4:53 am

How about something that sounds kinda like how joe would name it? Something simply jerk-ish. Like, Awesomer or something lame like that. Or something with S like the other two :3

Law on November 29, 2010 at 6:54 am

@Kuehnau – Thanks for understanding! :D Yeah, I’m still learning to manage The Pocalypse time as best I can and sometimes a scene is too large or life gets in the way :) I know you guys understand and I appreciate it!
Luckily, the two filler scenes (and probably all filler scenes in the future) use only existing sprites/animations, so they’re very easy to make :) But, if I don’t have time to update, even with a filler scene, I know you’ll all understand :D

Joe on November 29, 2010 at 7:20 am

Slayer. I think it would be a good name for him. Stinger, Sentinel, Slayer. It would be perfect. Course I’m sure its been suggested already.

Blackwolf359 on November 29, 2010 at 9:24 am

okay first please don’t ever rush the main comics like Kuehnau said, if you can’t get time to do it properly we under stand. And also please don’t just try to throw something together to quick, take your time and make sure your happy with it.

As for the name. I keep thinking Vincible, like invincible but from what we’ve seen he just might be, but you also hint that he might be able to die. Can’t wait to see what is picked, and the battle scene.

Andy "Freazen" Howe on November 29, 2010 at 9:55 am

“Green Death Spiral Bot.”

hyperwarp85 on November 30, 2010 at 5:23 am

i change my vote:

not sure exactly what it should be but: it has to be something related to a robot (stinger and sentential = robotish names) and it has to start with the letter S since stinger and sentential both start with S

lukesf on November 30, 2010 at 8:06 am

Nice, Joe. Getting a good line of comments, this shows growing popularity (or flame wars, either way it means you’re successful).
