Not Crazy. Good. Good. 01/22/2011

by Joe

Glad to see that I’m not crazy! You guys have some awesome plans in place :D Yup, humanity is going to be just fine :)

I’ve noticed a few trickles of traffic coming from StumbleUpon and TV Tropes! Thank you all for spreading the word! The floodgates will soon open! :D As requested, I’m going to add a button to the navigation bar that will link to our TV Tropes entry. Thanks for helping out!

I’m loving all of the activity and discussion in the comments! Our community is growing :D Don’t forget that you can mingle in the forums, too!

Enjoy Scene 20 – “Let the Hunt Begin!” Recognize the background of New Hammerston’s eastern gate? Yup, that’s where the game will be set! Defend the eastern gate! :D

Please continue to vote!

Have a great weekend!

A reference to Oxypooper! I am honored Joe! XP
Seems like Joe still hasn’t connected Zombie/Vampire Leutenant with a cetain Andy…

It is Joe you are talking about. I think he has problems connecting a lot of things. Take strange training sessions for one…

SirBounceAlot on January 22, 2011 at 1:21 pm

Wait, so when Bernie, Jess, and Joe came into town, it was through the western gate? I thought the soldiers were killed (by Joe) at the west gate so everyone thought Leuitenant Cross went out that way?

i want a plant puppy :( its too bad but they are pretty bad ass :P

mikelord356 on January 22, 2011 at 1:47 pm

@Grant – I had to re-watch past scenes for this one! :D Correct me if I’m wrong, but the way I see it, Jess, Bernie, and Joe entered through the west gate, “Joe” killed the west gate soldiers, then Andy got out. Andy then infected Cross, Cross kidnapped Rosa, visited the armoury, then they left New Hammerston through the eastern gate. Does that make sense? (I can definitely foresee a continuation error(s) as the comic moves along :D I’m glad you guys catch everything!)

Joe on January 22, 2011 at 1:49 pm

I think (correct me if I’m wrong) that it happened over two nights. The guards were killed one night, then Andy proablly feed. The next night Cross got out

And yay~ Scruffelbeck is in teh team :D

Squizzel on January 22, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Honesty. I don’t know if that’s a valor in this case, but Joe doesn’t lack honesty.

Yan on January 23, 2011 at 2:20 am

Yea old man! Get new house! Your house sucks! Joe, you really are honest! Good job with that. I like Oxypooper better, but Scrufflebeck works just fine. But yey, dog make four! New team mate! Plants rock! Especially plant-dogs!

Geolancer, Guardian of the Light on January 24, 2011 at 3:34 am

Scrufflebeck is for teh win

Toaster O' Vengeance on January 24, 2011 at 4:19 am

Scrufflebeck will become contaminated/polluted by toxics and become a savage beast! Retaining it’s personality while becoming a massive fire(plant)force

or a giant three headed plant dog

one) i read 30 web-comics, i use a point to grade how the web comic is doing.
it is very simple you take how many scripts they’ve put out, subtract how many fillers they have( ie missed comic’s, guest strips, or days they just forgot to put something up.) then divided by how many days the Web comic has been running. So far you have the highest score.

two) I’m coming to Japan to meet my wife’s family ( yes she is Japanese) and wonder if you have any ideas where I should go.

oliver on January 25, 2011 at 4:01 am

here is some fun (original French title Les Schtroumpfs Noirs, literally The Black Smurfs first published in 1963) was one of the first zombie movies, 5 years be for Night of the Living Dead (published in 1968). you should look in to it.

oliver on January 25, 2011 at 4:22 am

@luke yes he will or might become plantberus

mikelord356 on January 25, 2011 at 7:28 am

@luke again or maybe herberus

mikelord356 on January 25, 2011 at 7:28 am

XD Herberus ftw. This now has to happen.

Tenyo on January 25, 2011 at 7:53 am


DingDingDing!!!!! We have a winner! That name’s perfect for a three headed-plant-dog!

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on January 25, 2011 at 9:33 am

@Makenna Ray Parker – Thank you so much! :D I absolutely love hearing you say that and it gives me a lot of fuel!
@oliver – Yeah! Someone mentioned The Black Smurfs, but I haven’t looked far into it yet (just Wikipedia)! Thanks for reminding me :D Awesome! Japan is a beautiful place! First off, definitely take advantage of the hospitality that you will receive in your wife’s family’s home and hometown. There’s nothing like exploring a new place with locals. Look into getting a Japan Rail Pass (http://www.japanrailpass.net/) so that you can ride the Japan Rail trains around the country for as long as you have the pass. Tokyo is obviously a must-see, you can spend many nights there and experience what Japan’s nightlife and modern culture has to offer. Kamakura (about 2 hours from Tokyo by train) is a nice sight-seeing spot that used to be Japan’s capital. One of Japan’s most-visited temples is there. If you’re really into temples and Japan’s traditional culture, you have to go to Kyoto. Kyoto was spared from bombings in WW2, so a lot of “old Japan” is intact there. I LOVE visiting Kyoto, especially in the spring, when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom and geishas walk the old streets of Gion. Hiroshima, as you know, has a lot of history and is worth seeing. Hakone is a beautiful place that is full of awesome onsens (hot spring baths). If you’re comfortable being naked in front of strangers and feel like relaxing, Hakone is a great spot. If you’re going to Japan during Mt. Fuji’s climbing season, bring your hiking gear and get up there! I could go on and on! Check out http://www.japan-guide.com. That’s where I go when I feel like being a tourist again :D
@mikelord356 – Haha! Doesn’t even require a vote!

mikelord356 on January 25, 2011 at 11:04 am

@mikelord356 – Cool! Seeing your dad after so long is going to be great! I’m glad you’re happy! Japan is just icing on the cake. Have a great time! :D

Joe on January 25, 2011 at 11:58 am
