Prooobabbly not a good idea to tell Joe he has powers, other than maybe that he can’t be harmed so he dosen’t need to be scared (though I guess that’s probabbly the only power he has since he couldn’t get past the doc) n wow that soldier is a wuss, a little pain in exchange for enough power to be a waaay better soldier and eternal life? so he misses the sun a little and has to give really passionate neck kisses, sounds like rosa has the same pain to deal with (or did at first) n she wasn’t a soldier, she was just a coffee girl. if she could take it, that makes him an even bigger wuss (n those brown coat gang…I wonder if they were fans of firefly XD)

Joe, just letting you know I am extremely excited for TPD2 and all the sprites and different units for the factions that you are coming up with seem great and will be a perfect fit into the game. Cant wait till you finally finish it, going to be totally worth the wait.

Laserhead on December 5, 2012 at 12:48 am

@Laserhead – I’m very happy to hear that! :D Thanks!

Joe on December 5, 2012 at 12:49 am

Poor poor, Mr. Smyth. I feel so bad for him, just trying to be a good soldier and defend the colony and save people and gets mortally wounded then turned into a vampire, that just sounds worse than death.

Laserhead on December 5, 2012 at 12:53 am

The thirst… The V-Virus makes your whole body burn like fire all the time. The only relief is ingestation or injection of fresh blood that is absorbend and turned just like your own original blood.

Not a fate I’d like to live with. Well, maybe if there’s Joe-Juice to go with.

robert on December 5, 2012 at 6:13 am

What about animal blood? Is there any particulars about vampires ingesting animal blood in this universe? Some say they don’t cause they lack nutrients necessary. Others say they do, but taste horrible.

NeoWarrior on December 5, 2012 at 7:30 am

Typo. Joe says w-we’re those vampires? Instead of w-were those vampires? Other than that fantastic scene.

Jermell Williams on December 5, 2012 at 9:30 am

@Jermell Williams – Thanks for the catch! Fixed! :D

Joe on December 5, 2012 at 12:13 pm

i get massive lag trying to get this scene to run…

mouseman on December 5, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Caught another typo “You have to believe me,Joe. After everything you’ve just witnessed,you have (should be a “to” here) know that I’m telling you the truth”

Wayne Mangham on December 5, 2012 at 2:57 pm

I think that vampires need to drink the same blood as their base species, because it replaces blood they don’t make anymore (You wouldn’t want another species blood for a transplant, would you)? Sounds like a reasonable explanation to me. So a vampire dog can only drink from other dogs. Probably why the first vampires can walk into a pet store and make an army of obedient vampire dogs too – you can only make the same species because of the similar-species thing.

r2d2go on December 5, 2012 at 7:44 pm

@ Wayne Mangham – Thanks for the catch! Fixed! :D

Joe on December 5, 2012 at 7:56 pm

Oh No! I finally caught up with the present after reading the archives? I have to wait for the next one? Oh woe is me!

Loving the comic, Joe. This is awesome stuff. I’m amazed at how you’ve managed to interweave the characters, how they’ve all developed through the course of the series.

Keep it up.

And, uh… planning anything for Android?

Akapavious on December 5, 2012 at 11:57 pm

@Akapavious – Thank you for reading! We don;t have anything planned for Android yet but TPD2’s success could change that :D

Joe on December 6, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Dear Joe,
Do you plan to attempt to get TPD2 on Steam? It would probably increase sales if you succeeded (I know I’d be able to buy it then). Some people can’t buy games from companies their parents don’t know well. Steam is highly trusted by all, even the most paranoid parents. Whether or not you will even read this, I do not know, but please consider it.

Sincerely, smores1

smores1 on December 6, 2012 at 5:37 pm

The Brown Jackets remind me of Twilight. A poor excuse for vampires xD

Andre Holmes on December 6, 2012 at 6:01 pm

@ smores1 – Yup! I’d like to submit TPD2 to Steam when we have a little more to show :D I’ll let you all know when we’re on Steam Greenlight!

Joe on December 6, 2012 at 9:26 pm

they aren’t worthy to wear the mighty Browncoat, good job Bernie killed them all

Oddliver on December 7, 2012 at 6:04 am

Cant wait for TPD2

raikue on December 7, 2012 at 12:54 pm

In all honestly, your story is FANTASTIC. The rest (comic style) not so much. (NO I haven’t tried your games, maybe I will take a look.) Keep up the good story and I’ll keep coming back. :)

stimepy J Kat on December 7, 2012 at 10:17 pm

when should tdp4 be out?

robo247 on December 8, 2012 at 6:59 am


robo247 on December 8, 2012 at 7:00 am

I watch all parts of pocalypse and i say: EPIC!

HardkoreezPL on December 8, 2012 at 10:36 am

So much to comment on, so little time. Great chapter. Great enemies. Thumbs up and hats off to you Joe

Marduk on December 9, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Question. Well, two. Are the BrownJackets going to appear as vampire variants in TPD2? And are vampires only going to appear in night stages of the game, or have you forgotten that variable?

Pseudonym_ on December 9, 2012 at 7:13 pm

It won’t load.

Evan on December 10, 2012 at 9:46 am

Uhm in TPTD2 can we visit/find other
colonies to trade or something like Trading ( Like new robot’s orsomethin like that that would be cool ~That’s what she said – She

IHaveAQuestion on December 10, 2012 at 7:02 pm

I really hope that this will turn up good……

ILuvScruffy on December 11, 2012 at 6:45 am

woa.. I came across this site yesterday and juz finished readin archives …And i must tell yu author ,got addicted to ur story..thanks a lot bro and keep d work goin ..\m/

divya on December 11, 2012 at 11:19 am

Bernie used his jets to burn that vampire behind him and I was like “WHOA GREAT THINKING!” XD

illeatyourself on December 18, 2012 at 8:19 pm

Wait! How about Rosa? I mean she didn’t feel any blood lust after she accidently drained out the kid’s mom. Maybe Rosa actually beginning to make her own blood. Either Harry’s a vampire or zombie vampire got the best of him.
SO Death Company equivalent for him anyone?
