Possible Slowdown Ahead! | September 25, 2012

by Joe

Chapter 7 is in the books! Thank you all for voting for your favourite chapter summary format! I may think of something new for the next summary :D

As Joe said in the scene, things may slow down on the comic end as I try to meet deadlines for TPD2, which we want to complete by December (fingers crossed!). If I don’t post a scene at a normal time, please understand that it is most likely because of TPD2 work :D

We’ll see how much I can handle and how demanding Chapter 8 will be! I hope you’re looking forward to it as much as I am :D

Enjoy Chapter 7’s Summary – “Not Even Sam Could Do This”!

I also need to know what size your browser is when you visit The Pocalypse for future reference. We’re currently working on something that will require a browser so this information is very important. Please visit this page to let me know what your browser size is. Thank you so much! This information will make your future The Pocalypse experience even better! :D

Who can you find in the Hammerston suburbs? Vote to see! Please vote for The Pocalypse here everyday! (Powerfist, Greybane, Rosa, Cross, Stinger, Jake, Obliteration, and Doc are in this one!) I’m going to try coming up with a new incentive every update (or every few updates) :D Thank you for voting!

Joe created 3 un-cubed beings for the first time in the dream world!
PlantKing is spherical
Nick and Greybane are normal
Yay! His ability is growing!

I think Sam was trying to get Joe to unlock his powers himself (as that would grant him supernatural strength, speed, armor and healing as well as mind-crafting) by feigning the inability to mind craft.

Typo with “Joe, you we’re the eighth.” we’re should be were, and so on.

I like how Joe returns back to his board at the end. It’s perfect.

@Joe Maybe a plant summery would be interesting, considering I figure that the next Chapter will involve them a lot.

You are truly an incredibly gifted individual……..

BTW what happened to Mr. Comedy of the original summaries? This is the second summary he misses no? The previous one was done by a machinoid if memory serves…

I didnt like this summary,it felt too long and abit boring and there was 2 much happening on the screen while the text was on,i found myself looking up and down constantly to make sure i didnt miss anything. Bring back that machine thingy or make a new concept,maybe make it like a side scroller where you walk to sections of each scene,you can control a character of your choice and when you get to the next slate or stage or whatever the character summarises it up for you,that way you can go at your own pace and control your favourite character at the same time?

I thought the visual aids were an enhancement, rather than a detriment. It allowed for a lot more than the 4 characters to be shown that the talking heads panel with the comedian generally allowed, and added some humor that was fairly bad puns (I appreciate puns, but sometimes they just hurt). Can’t think of anything that was missed, awesome work Joe

@ Dr krillin Maybe the mutants mind isn’t powerful enough to allow sam to use them. It could be that its mind was just powerful enough for sam to possess

@shalidar13 very good explanation, but since i remember the mutants mind was hell of a mind because it was disrupted by the scientific guy, so it should allow him to at least use some of his powers, or am i wrong?

I prefer the Conan end of chapter wrap ups better. They had a funny way of explaining things that happened and things to come in a not so serious time saving way. This summary, however, was very detailed and demonstrated the authors growing skills very well.

i’ve been away for so long and so much has happend finally caught up again and i really cant wait for the nect chapter to come out.

@ Dr krillin that’s a very good point. Another reason might be that sam wants joe to release his powers and so isn’t using his to force joe into releasing them

Joe sure loves his board. I’m lookin forward to the next chapter very much. One thing though, I’m quite sure it’s “gist” and not “jist”. Good luck with TPD2 project.

Shouldn’t that say that Joe AND Bernie leave Jess’s group? And why isn’t the ball on that spider thingy blocky like all the other blockreations (see what I did there?) that Joe has made? And BLOCK SCRUFFLEBECK IS SO CUTE!! :3

LOL! He really loves that board! BTW, why not make some minecraft skins for each of the characters? I already started trying to make one for Powerfist, but I can’t decide if I want it to look like Powerfist or Blocky Powerfist. XD

@ illeatyourself i think you should do Blocky powerfist as he is like minecraft: all blocks no circles

I made a test Powerfist for myself but can’t help but think it looks off. The black collar above the green vest doesn’t translate well. It ended up with it looking like Joe has a green moose head pattern on his clothes. Overall I am happy with it though, seeing as it is my first skin.

New here! Love the comic, love the story – the plots arcs nicely! Very inspired.
I honestly found the game first. Great story though!

OK… Now We have seen:
– Humans: Dream Realm.
– Vampires: Mind Realm.
– Machines: Communications Interface.
– Plants: Neuro-synoptic link.
– Joe: Joe’s Craftmind World.
– Zombies: – UNKNOWN – (Maybe a ghostly/death place? ombies can think enought to have their OEM Mind Realm?).
– Mutants: – UNKNOWN – (Maybe a chaotic & distorted versión of Dream Realm?).
