Zylar on August 27, 2011 at 1:48 pm

lol and also please for gods sake don’t make monday the cliff hanger part please!!!!
it is actually very interesting at tis point….possibly….

scavenger on August 27, 2011 at 1:51 pm

So…Anika and Joe are brothers?!

Acrontus on August 27, 2011 at 2:02 pm


Erik on August 27, 2011 at 2:06 pm

We don’t know that, though it is a possibility if you compare their features.

Lukesf on August 27, 2011 at 2:10 pm

That comment was at Acrontus for clarification.

Lukesf on August 27, 2011 at 2:10 pm

Holy shit son, if they are sibling I am going to explode. In a good way. On a another not. If, WHEN, Joe wakes up, he is going to be pissed, and someone is going to get his ass kicked.

Matthew on August 27, 2011 at 2:19 pm

I enjoyed every hour of it over the last two days. Lookin forward to more.

Krillanr on August 27, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Come on Joe ur not allowed to die, cuz we won’t watch this anymore if you do

John on August 27, 2011 at 5:33 pm

@Acrontus its a distinct possibility but i doubt Joe would make it that obvious, though if they are why hasn’t Anika manifested powers as well? its possible she isn’t his sister but she might have just not met the right condition for her powers to awaken… i don’t think Joe(character) mentioned siblings. though i might be wrong on that(i haven’t read the archives in a while after all)

nightarix on August 27, 2011 at 6:06 pm

oh and i bet if she does end up manifesting she will have a different power-set then Joe has/had

nightarix on August 27, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Yeah I bet they are brothers and sisters
They do bare a remarkable amount of similarities now that I think about it, especially the hair and face.
Joe is definitely older than Anika which means that either she has a while before her powers come, or Joe picked up the powers somehow when he was in the hospital.

Highcalibur10 on August 27, 2011 at 6:34 pm

I never remember Annika having a brother. I also think Joe is an immediat threat. He should live but be banished to the outside world.

Leinahtan on August 27, 2011 at 8:15 pm

^^^^^^^^^^I think that’s bullshit.

Matthew on August 27, 2011 at 8:32 pm

Ok if Joe dies, we all have one minute of silence. But anyway, I cant wait to see what Joe is gonna be like when he wakes up, e.g. “BERNIE!!! DID YOU JUST FUCKING SHOOT ME!!!!”

Jon on August 27, 2011 at 9:06 pm

“So…Anika and Joe are brothers?!”

haha poor choice of words man. that would imply that theyre both male.^^ but on a more serious note, awesome update. cant wait to see if they might be related, either.

Jack on August 27, 2011 at 9:20 pm

JOE and ANNIKA ??!!! LIKE!

ejay247 on August 27, 2011 at 9:33 pm

two words……(what? those were my two words)

Pocalypselove0001 on August 27, 2011 at 11:23 pm

To help with taking to a specific person with other people already commented, add a @NAME, kind of what i did here and then write what you have to say. (just not in all caps)

Decifer on August 28, 2011 at 12:08 am

Maybe, but he could be still knocked out once he comes through. And here’s another monkey wrech, maybe it could be inner Joe (one with the black eyes) that wakes up, not outer Joe.

Decifer on August 28, 2011 at 12:12 am

ever since annika was part of the small party moving for hammerston knew she was a key figure to the storyline.

hypnokrit on August 28, 2011 at 12:24 am

wait she doest know that joe is working with the colony…

hypnokrit on August 28, 2011 at 12:25 am

maybe she can see small glimpses of possible futures or she may be psychic & the elder wants to keep the timeline in shape so he needs to kill annika, because he saw her dream

hypnokrit on August 28, 2011 at 12:27 am

Elder will save Joe, because joe still haven’t paid the favor back.

Rikion on August 28, 2011 at 12:31 am

Okay reading these comments have made me terribly confused.
Is her name Anika or Annika? I could have sworn it was Annika.

Muffins on August 28, 2011 at 12:36 am

I must say, I was not expecting that from Jess but I was expecting that from Annika.

Noble 7 on August 28, 2011 at 1:11 am

holy crap! I think Annika is Joe’s younger sister maybe? Or is it older? But I was expecting Jess to slug the doctor and give him the cold shoulder and end it with him, since she does have a thing for Terry after all. Yet I am not sure as to why the Doc felt so threatened by those two, jealousy may have been a part of it…but i also think that the doc felt that Jess was taking a liking to them more and more.

sykes on August 28, 2011 at 1:29 am

ok my theory is that joe was in a car crash (like joe said in chapter 2) and was in a coma and some scientists/doctors were trying to make a super soldier (aka inner joe) and needed a living body for I.J. so the used outer joe who was in a coma. But outer joe woke up from the coma and had super soldier abilities but with his own mind while Inner joe was trapped in outer joes head. so by this logic annika wouldnt have powers because the powers arent genetic. but this is all in theory of course and could be wrong. Love the comic cant wait to see more!

alpha on August 28, 2011 at 2:11 am

Annika and JOE R SIBLINGS??WTFBBQHAXOLOL13379001666!!!!!!!!!!11111111ONEELVEN Anyways,Outer Joe is gonna be pisssed by Dr Jess Lover did,Author Joe needs a sushi fix(Wtf man),BlockHopper beta arriving(OH YEEAAH) And zee elder haz escaped from zee cell in zee Doc’s science room.We need to find out what is happening in OJ’s mind.Btw,I found out that at the bottom of greenpixels projects page,There is a picture of lots of author joes doing things.

Edward AND THIS IS SO SAD ABOUT THE ANNIKA PART on August 28, 2011 at 2:41 am

obviously joe will not die. he is the protagonist

roger on August 28, 2011 at 3:01 am

Called it, I called it!

Alixandir on August 28, 2011 at 3:14 am

Wooooot? Wow oh and i think it is also very possible for Annika and Joe to be siblings i remember Joe saied he got hit by a truck or a car and didnt have the powers before waking up in the hospital so it has to do something with him being run over.So i dont think Annika will develope the powers incase she should be Joe’s sister.So awesome as always and i always wait for the next episode but this time ill be ugh i dont know extra waiting it?

Dagzter on August 28, 2011 at 4:03 am

An important distinction: did Joe have latent powers before being run over or did somebody infuse him with them while he was comatose?
If the first: it matters whether Annika is his sister in regards to her power levels
If the second: It only matters on a personal level
If the first: the vampires would be interested in Joe for his bloodline
If the second: the vampires would be interested in Joe for knowing who gave him power and if s/he is still giving people power

sh4d0wfl4re on August 28, 2011 at 5:11 am

I think Joe is Aniika’s broter :O This is so awesome.

Rachel B on August 28, 2011 at 5:46 am

i think someone infused him with it cause b4 in earlier episodes a machine took greybane and some other thingy i forgot what it was and one was empty that was probably him in the middle tube

someguy on August 28, 2011 at 5:49 am

So who was the person who called it that Anika and Joe were siblings? You win an internet!

Also Nick… Whuuuuuuuut. I mean last episode I was like: Yeah k I can understand that he doesn’t want to waste supplies and that he’s been through these dying moments a gazillion times as doctor… But now he’s just jealous? Pfff. Geeze.

Yinello on August 28, 2011 at 7:07 am

Wow,i litearly held my breath covered my mouth when joe was shot,D: the main character is my HERO!i always have softspots for others,if he ends up dying this is going to tear me apart D:

Katasumi on August 28, 2011 at 8:38 am

oh yeah and they look like siblings,they might be.

Katasumi on August 28, 2011 at 8:39 am







Edward on August 28, 2011 at 9:18 am

Nappa: Not nine thousand..?
Vegeta: No, no just over nine. His power level’s ten, ok? Ten.

sh4d0wfl4re on August 28, 2011 at 9:42 am

I love how my expression just went from :o to O_O at the very end.

Mini on August 28, 2011 at 10:36 am

So I was shocked by that awesome ending!! I wasn’t shocked when Bernie shot Joe, but when blood splattered on the floor my jaw dropped and him dying was even worse!!! I thought Joe was really going to die, but when Anika said she had a bad dream about her brother dying I had to look for some screws to put my jaw back in place after all those WTF moments. I cant wait for the next episode!!!!!!!!!!! XD

Fence Hopper David on August 28, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Joe&Anika??? If it’s true, then Anika’s going to be soooo pissed with Joe!

NeoWarrior on August 29, 2011 at 3:20 am

Even if IJ awakens,Nick ( Jess’s lover ) will be probably killed.

Joe and Annika siblings? Possible. Maybe the whole family was infected by the zombie virus ( which would give a reason to the resistance to a zombie’s bite ) but they got a special blood that protects them ( like the Zombpires ) from the full infection. But then again why would Joe be invulnerable to bullets?

However,awesome movie. Waiting for the next one :D

Happy Vampire on August 29, 2011 at 4:43 am

Wow this series is awesome. I can’t wait for more. I say nothing els ^_^

Jordan on August 29, 2011 at 5:40 am

@Fence hoppr david ARGREED i got a comic on hiatus and this one is the only one im reading untill the other one unpuasesezeze

Katasumi on August 29, 2011 at 7:19 am

@rachel yeah, your probably right, how did i not think the same thing! I cant wait for te next update :D

Courtanaynay on August 29, 2011 at 7:28 am

@Katasumi what other comic are you reading? would it happen to be mspaintadventures: homestuck?

sh4d0wfl4re on August 29, 2011 at 7:40 am

@sh4d0wfl4re I’m pretty sure a lot of people that read the Pocalypse also read Homestuck. Just a feeling I get.

Infinite Virginity on August 29, 2011 at 8:52 am

I will DIE from all this suspense!!!!!!!!Good story!

Gray on August 29, 2011 at 10:48 am

We need a Project Quantum Leap in The Pocalypse.Or not.

Edward on August 29, 2011 at 11:16 am

HAHAHAHAHA, I totally called Annika and Joe being siblings, she said she had 2 older brothers, and he said a brother and a sister. I think the reason he has his powers is CAUSE he got hit by a truck. it took some traumatic event for his powers to manufest themselves. or maybe thats how Dark Joe split off from Normal Joe. And since he is older, he got them before she did. she will probably get them later, or maybe hers will be different, like a Seer (see’s the future, events happening far away), while he is a warrior, super strength, speed, and invincibality. If this is true, then their other brother is probably on the loose somewhere, with some other wierd powers.

But I doubt that Elder Domanik is going to kill Annika, its more likely that he is gona go save Joe, cause a dead guy cant pay back his debts. He probably doesnt even know about Annika’s possible powers. Though the elders have great knowledge and can see lots, they arent all knowing.

Thanks Author Joe for such an amazing episode, and please dont make this the end of The Joe’s

Leviticus on August 29, 2011 at 11:56 am

P.S. I found a Grammar mistake. Ch3, scene 15. greybane says “bug somehow regained SOME ITS human intelegence. stick an “of” in there, or remove the some. just pointing that out.

Leviticus on August 29, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Shouldnt you have posted that all the way back at Ch3, scene 15 instead of here, in chapter…

someguy on August 29, 2011 at 1:25 pm

you guessed it.

Katasumi on August 29, 2011 at 8:22 pm

Since Annika said her brother died and it felt so real. That must mean Joe is her brother. And he isnt dead :(

Leinahtan on August 29, 2011 at 9:20 pm

maybe the reason bernie’s dad suddenly came to hammerston in the first place was to implant an enhanced mind of a vip into a host body ie: joe,
the man was called nick (or something) as elder dom referanced, nick had to do something while the body was inactive, and that is how dom found inner joe.

the zombie pocalypse started just before the outer joe was going to be removed from the body, giving nick full control so they are both stuck in the same body.

also nick could be a very wealthy man who is at an age of near death who created the first working synthetic mind.
and with his money he got put into joe’s body close to the beginning of the pocalypse.

greybane is an escaped genetic experiment of the machines who was needed for capture to continue work on him.
bug was a guinea-pig for a nueral enhancement for more test subjects/host bodies for ai (who have been striving to gain biological bodies since day one of realizing they weren’t human.

hypnokrit on August 30, 2011 at 12:49 am

shit the guys dom mentioned was samuel if i said nick above i meant sam.

hypnokrit on August 30, 2011 at 1:03 am


hypnokrit on August 30, 2011 at 1:04 am

Joe(The ingame character) said in the beginning that he had a brother, and a sister. Anika is possibly that sister. And the little boy could be his brother. I do believe he said his brother was older though, and I think the little boy is an only child.

Aaron on August 30, 2011 at 2:12 am

But Nathan has a mom… and is not related to Anika whatsoever.

Shade person on August 30, 2011 at 2:41 am

joe cant die hes the best

kyle on August 30, 2011 at 2:51 am

who knows maybe the samuel guy was joes brother maybe it would make sense

kingjd on August 30, 2011 at 5:01 am

well,hypnokrit,you made it make sense.
im unpatiently waiting for the next update.

Katasumi on August 30, 2011 at 7:18 am

nick will jump out and not save joe and then guess what
joe gets healed and kicks mind joes ass and then explosion s and then epic booms that will scare machines and plants,mutants and zombies,werewolves and vampires will be so scared they will leave the earth forever

Katasumi on August 30, 2011 at 9:10 am


Katasumi on August 30, 2011 at 9:10 am

and peace will be restored

Katasumi on August 30, 2011 at 9:11 am

Mind joe:NO JOO WONT

Katasumi on August 30, 2011 at 9:12 am

Another hour and a new scene arrives.I’m confused about the doorlight thing anyway.

Edward on August 30, 2011 at 9:13 am

Doc: “I forgot to tell him that the guards are both rather fond of their garlic, holy symbols, and wooden-stake crossbows… Oh well!”

Locke on August 30, 2011 at 10:55 am

@locke Dominik(In mind):If they have garlic,holy symbols and wooden stake crossbows I will ripple them to be sure.

Edward on August 30, 2011 at 11:12 am
