Llama118 on August 9, 2011 at 5:34 pm

Nice. It is hot here too.

Alex on August 9, 2011 at 5:36 pm

OH SHIT SON! IT’S GOING DOWN! Hahahahahaha, I know bernie has no chance without Arbiter so i’m kinda scared for him right now. Hopefully he’ll be alright.

I’m half expecting to see a comment from edward complaining how there isn’t going to be another chapter ’till tuesday.

Oh and THIRD!

Matthew on August 9, 2011 at 5:42 pm

Quicky cliffhanger generator 5000 3rd Edition wrapped in happy fun sauce with a cherry on top.

Yoinkinator on August 9, 2011 at 5:42 pm

NOOOO cut off too soon :( now i HAVE to know what happens. but i must say.. inner joe has gotten a little out of hand *cough* prick *cough*

Alex Apocalypse on August 9, 2011 at 5:43 pm

is it just me or did it look like joe wanted somthing from rosa liek the s.. word could be kids on this site not going to risk it

ryan on August 9, 2011 at 6:06 pm


new inner joe should use oouters anger directed at bernie as the gateway to his freedom.

hypnokrit on August 9, 2011 at 6:07 pm

even if a kid sees the word sex would they know what it is?
oh and kids who are looking at this DO NOT ASK WHAT IT IS, unless you are over 10
then you have a right to know.

hypnokrit on August 9, 2011 at 6:10 pm


no third there is. first or nothing there is.

(yay yoda reference!)

hypnokrit on August 9, 2011 at 6:13 pm

@Hypno, they will find out eventually anyways, unless they are locked in a closet for there entire lives with no internet, so why delay the inevitable?

Lukesf on August 9, 2011 at 6:20 pm

inner but now outer joe he was going to RAPE HER!!!!! outer but now inner joe may have said the same thing but with the word wife!!!!!

mutant hunter on August 9, 2011 at 6:28 pm


Noble 7 on August 9, 2011 at 7:44 pm

wow epic its gonna be a show down maybe in the next scene.Also i dont mind the cliffhangers 2 days isn’t long to wait since im used to wait for anime like a week which is much more painful

Dagzter on August 9, 2011 at 7:48 pm

I think Joe will win over Inner Joe!
And then marry Rosa.
By the way,wait time is only 2 days? YEEEEEEEEEEEAH!
The Pocalypse FTW

Happy Vampire on August 9, 2011 at 7:59 pm

This is (former) outer joe’s chance, other joe is getting angry which should weaken his mental defences. I hope I am not the only one that wants to see an awesome mental fight with the different personalities constantly shifting.

bobsickle on August 9, 2011 at 8:38 pm

IJ is definitely a big bastard… WAY bigger than OJ and THAT’S saying something…

NeoWarrior on August 9, 2011 at 9:04 pm

i Bet Bernie can remote control Arbiter

Mikado on August 9, 2011 at 9:17 pm

In the left corner we have Inner Joe, Champion of Joes body and a maniac with super powers, And in the right corner we have Outer Joe, trapped in his own head and fighting for freedom, who will win this epic battle? What will the outcome be? Will Outer Joe capture his body back or shall Inner Joe triumph? Find out on Wednesday!

Jon on August 9, 2011 at 9:20 pm

Then harry f*cks evil joe over the end :D Right?

Anonymous_Jr on August 9, 2011 at 9:22 pm

question: what exactly does he has against Bernie, I mean, just because Rosa mentioned his name, he must die?

DramaNoMore on August 9, 2011 at 9:22 pm


frida on August 9, 2011 at 9:40 pm

No, Inner Joe is in a fragile state. The real Joe shall take over…

Shade person on August 9, 2011 at 10:24 pm

Wait a minute… This is the Elder’s doing, isn’t it?

Shade person on August 9, 2011 at 10:29 pm

Lol,I love the comments tippy toeing around words, and then comes mutant hunter.

@mutant hunter:
Great job, your comment made me laugh.

blinx92 on August 9, 2011 at 10:58 pm

:( im going on vacation in 2 days and that mean ill have to wait longer to see what happens
oh well
(PS:please excuse any spelling errors i go to a mostly french school

blade man on August 9, 2011 at 11:03 pm

Angertime, angertime, angertime, BAM! POWERFIST IS BACK BAYBEH!

Delta Pangaea on August 9, 2011 at 11:42 pm

I think that “Joe” is gonna try to kill bernie but before he can, whatever the elder put inside of the real joe’s head is gonna go off. ^_^ let’s find out after these short messages!

Pocalypselove0001 on August 10, 2011 at 12:55 am

Jess is going to give Inner Joe such a shock that Outer Joe can break through (I think taking a raging superhuman down unarmed would do the trick 8p)

sh4d0wfl4re on August 10, 2011 at 1:45 am

JOE IS GONNA FIRIN HIS LAZAR!! (shoop da whoop reference^_^) thumbs up by me XD

Decifer on August 10, 2011 at 2:15 am

Okay, all this Inner Joe Outer Joe stuff confuses me, so I`m gonna re-name them. Author Joe can stay as Author Joe, The Joe that`s is currently on the inside is Nice Joe, and the one on the outside (with the messed up eyes) is Jack Ass Joe.

Spade-Nya on August 10, 2011 at 3:24 am

Jack Ass Joe. I like that idea. JAJ’s problem with Bernie is that Rosa wanted him to sort things out, showing that she trusts him more. Now Original Joe(sorry Spade, but he still cant be considered Nice) is going to take Domanik’s advice and gain control of him in this weaker state.

Leviticus on August 10, 2011 at 4:28 am

i hope they kill this joe…

spike on August 10, 2011 at 5:59 am

Uh oh First other joe is kind of a douche 2nd I fear for what going to happen

Zerotech68 on August 10, 2011 at 8:04 am

scruffleback should use his mental powers (like when bernie was told to look behind the shelf)
to help joe hoist himself out.

hypnokrit on August 10, 2011 at 8:23 am

@hypnokrit there will always be a third as long as you are actually third, unlike you who wasn’t first.

Matthew on August 10, 2011 at 10:24 am

@Spade But “Nice Joe” as you call him isn’t actually nice.
How about Joe and Super Joe? Author Joe will remain the same, of course.
Alternatively, Regular Joe can be Jerk Joe, while Super Joe can be Jack Ass Joe.
I think SJ is about to pull a Fenris and put his fist through Bernie’s chest. Yes, I did just quote DA II, and yes, I am ashamed of myself.

Aethrys on August 10, 2011 at 11:28 am

I think the person who says “Just leave” after the second white flash should be rosa not joe, or joe should say “I’ll just leave”

Ruiling on August 10, 2011 at 1:41 pm

Hmm..A Canadian-Flipino guy leaves me with Inner Joe knocked Rosa out and about to play Mortal Kombat with Bernie.OH SHIZ IT JUST GAWT REEL SAWN.

Edward on August 10, 2011 at 1:46 pm


Matthew on August 10, 2011 at 1:56 pm

run for your lives the complainer for the pocalpse website has returned and may wreak havoc annoying everyone!

kingjd on August 10, 2011 at 2:06 pm


Matthew on August 10, 2011 at 3:20 pm


Also, Matthew, you fail. So much.

Irene on August 10, 2011 at 4:14 pm

thank you your a great adience and for those who dont know the complainer his name starts with an E and he complainsa lot to mostly to ask Joe to hurry up

kingjd on August 10, 2011 at 4:55 pm

@Irene At least I Win at failing right? At least I know I’m good at something, that’s what’s important. :D

Matthew on August 10, 2011 at 5:09 pm


I bet Joe exits from the mind & get knocked out from Harry.

In the meantime..
Author Joe,I hate your cliffhangers! D:

Happy Vampire on August 10, 2011 at 11:50 pm

STOP! Murder time!

Locke on August 11, 2011 at 3:18 am

first of all, Matthew’s second comment = epic win.
second, i kinda remembered this because from where i come from (portugal) it has completely flown under the radar now that the initial shock is over. so, author joe, how is japan now? is it better? is it worse? are you all hanging on like termites on a wooden board in a river? give us some news from time to time!
third, my bet is that Dominic’s gonna burst through JAJ’s mind, leaving a hole for Joe to get out, just as JAJ’s about to rip Bernie’s head. Meanwhile, Jess is gonna freak out, Bernie will shoot Joe with Arbiter, Scrufflebeck is gonna spike Joe and Doc appears with his laser and fries Joe, just for the kick of it. you’re still a cliffhanging son of a gun author joe, though. :3

LucarioGuy1195 on August 11, 2011 at 3:54 am

When joe gets his body back,Its probably gonna be hard for him to explain

Quizzie on August 11, 2011 at 4:12 am

God I hate it when people keep sayind CLIFFHANGER! It’s becoming overused and it’s silly.

This is an ONLINE WEBCOMIC. No matter what, he isn’t going to be able to post an ENTIRE STORY on ONE SEGMENT. There will always be some unanswered question at the end of an upload. He has to stop somewhere, or this wouldn’t be a comic. it would be another book. So stop throwing around the word cliffhanger like it’s some kind of legitimate complaint. It’s only really applicable when something is particularly suspenseful anyway. I don’t think half of the updates that people have spammed the word cliffhanger under even come close to qualifying.

Willy on August 11, 2011 at 4:44 am

Well, it seems Joe is a moron either way.

Sam on August 11, 2011 at 4:46 am

I would prefer Inne-Joe to be nice. Readers are likely to have a preference for the first personnality of a character, because for them, it’s the true one, his real self. Actually, Outer-Joe is the true Joe for us, and Inner-Joe is a fake or something like that. We don’t consider him the “real” Joe. And since he’s such a jackass, the feeling is stronger. Because of that, we have the feeling that Outer-Joe is a poor (and stupide and selfish and pathetic) guy deceived by his other self. And that’s all.
But if Inner-Joe was nicer than Outer-Joe, the reader would have a moral dilemma. Which character should he like ? The “real” one, who’s such an ass, or the “fake” one, who’s better in all area. I think it would be an interesting situation for the reader and the story. Well, I know it’s not the case and it won’t be, the personality of each Joe is already decided, but I wanted to share my impression about the “Joe-Joe” case. ^^

Dairadh on August 11, 2011 at 6:06 am

@Leviticus I guess your right. “Nice Joe” isn`t really nice. Original Joe fits better.

Spade-Nya on August 11, 2011 at 8:31 am

Oh my god, this is going to be EPIC! If Bernie gets to his suit that’s it. If not, this will be a very short curbstomp battle.

Belexar on August 11, 2011 at 9:38 am

@KING,Lol,I don’t complain that much.Only when the deadline has been reached and nothing happened.Like some dude in the phillipines promised everyone a sequel game on May 1 2011.But I can’t complain,I don’t have an account.But norsrsly Matthew I’m not a fail.No,I am not a fail.I sometimes complain on Deadlines.Oh and no,I don’t annoy Everyone.Have I spammed your life kingjd or Matthew?Have I appeared on your doorstep talking in gibberish?No.Have I robbed you or used your computer?Ahem,NO.I dont go ”0H H4YZ DUD3 HURRY UP ON WH473V3R UR D01NG”.And king your grammar is bad and Matt,stop saying fail or win to someone just because of there answer.Now this is a pretty long and reasonable answer.

Edward on August 11, 2011 at 10:00 am

@Edward Okay, whatever. We were just having a bit of one time fun. If we thought you were going to write a paragraph full of too many punctuations, we wouldn’t have said anything. Have fun overreacting.

Matthew on August 11, 2011 at 10:27 am

Thank you for your excellent work on this series! I ran into your defender game the other night, and went ahead and flipped through the series up to this point. I eagerly await future updates!

Stephen on August 11, 2011 at 11:50 am

@Edward i have to rush through my comments sometimes because i take karate and go to a summer camp program that’s indoors so i dont have time to have time to fix my grammar!

kingjd on August 11, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Oh I’m not overreacting,I’m just replying.Don’t be dicks.Thats all I gotta say.

Edward on August 11, 2011 at 2:14 pm

Then don’t Complain. That’s all *I* got to say.

Matthew on August 11, 2011 at 5:13 pm

I knew it!! I knew there was something sinister about inner Joe. I wonder… Is real Joe (pocalypse writer Joe) somehow influenced by our comments? Or does he have it all planned out way in advance?

nix on August 11, 2011 at 7:11 pm
