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!)

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS!

And another cliffhanger!

That was perfect.

And yet another cliff hanger! When one has a habit of hanging off cliffs, he should avoid tall ledges. Of course, the comic would no be very entertaining with that logic.

At first I thought scrueffelbeck was talking…

Dranlord on September 11, 2012 at 9:43 pm

scavenger on September 11, 2012 at 11:50 pm

Golly, that was hilarious XD

Joe, I’m really wondering how far you’ll take this comic. How far it’ll go. All I can say is that I look forward to continuing on with it for as long as it lasts, be that two years, or twenty!

BloodWolf7 on September 12, 2012 at 12:23 am

What could Joe really do? At the moment he is just an invincible human(ish) shield.

bobsickle on September 12, 2012 at 6:48 am

WOW !! Like Banelings!!

Drifting on September 12, 2012 at 7:27 am

i like the popping sound lol :D

ColdPop on September 12, 2012 at 8:43 am

Oh I see. The machines are the Protoss and the plants are the Zerg, who want to do a temporary alliance with the Terrains to secure their territory. But if anything I learned from Kerrigan is that bitch cannot be trusted. I hope the story won’t copy the same storyline or the similarity and where you took ideas will be too obvious :D

anyone else notice that the machines called bernie’s missle a vampire weapon?

Not going to say on September 12, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Joe, seriously joe, that cliff hangers are killing me, i’m going to ask you 4 things, could you please respond at least one.
1-what is your secret, i mean, your comic i great and succesful, how do you do it?, especially the success part because the other one is about talent.
2-are you planning to make this an indie game?, because it would fucking rock, i mean, doing it like sandbox, you are one survivor and then i don’t know something.
3-This may sound silly but how do you make a “.com” domain, not blogspot, not webself, but .com?
4-could you make a tutorial on how to do a flash like your’s?, because i sincerely think that your comic is the future of webcomics and i would like to contribute.

thank you very much and i hope the real pocalypse waits until you finish your comic.

Dr.krillin on September 12, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Not going to say-> well Bernie got it from the old dude from the blood farm, and that dude got it from the machines… right?

NeoWarrior on September 12, 2012 at 6:15 pm

@Dr.krillin – I’ll respond to all four :D
1) There’s no secret! I’m just telling my story and trying to be respectful to my readers and any and all criticism. I’m very happy that people are enjoying the story and your feedback and support make me want to continue it and make your experience on this site better :D
2) We’ve made “The Pocalypse Defense” and it’s available to play on most Flash portals :D However that was more of an action/defense game. We’re currently working on “The Pocalypse Defense 2” and it will feature more RPG gameplay. An open sandbox game could happen some day!
3) You have to register your domain name on a domain name registrar then find a site hosting company that fits your needs, like http://www.hostgator.com/ :D
4) I’m glad to hear that you’d like to contribute! One of my goals is to make something that lets all of you create your own scenes in The Pocalypse world. I do plan on making a tutorial when I have more free time :D

Joe on September 12, 2012 at 9:48 pm

Why isn’t Bernie using the disabling device? He has that still, right? I could be terribly mistaken…

NarniaNerd on September 12, 2012 at 11:59 pm

@Narnia I think he just did. That missile thing (the one they called a vampire weapon) he fired was probably it, but the machines disabled it.

Random Guy on September 13, 2012 at 1:19 am

And in the background who is maintaining the presumably now-abandoned nuclear power plants?

rincewind on September 13, 2012 at 12:17 pm

great joe, thank you a lot, and just one more thing, is there any free hsoting site?, if not, well, thanks anyway

Dr.krillin on September 13, 2012 at 1:16 pm

i’ve been reading since the beginning can’t believe i’ve only just started commenting. also i did not see joe popping out of the ground coming lol couldn’t stop laughing

Oddliver on September 13, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Are those blue flame throwers or what are they? Odd weapon for simply burning things, even if it’s hot enough to turn the flames blue. It’s not every day you see something that looks like a laser or some sort of cutting beam but only goes a few feet and does nothing but burn stuff in a straight line.

illeatyourself on September 13, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Oh yeah, I lol’d when Joe poked his head out.

illeatyourself on September 13, 2012 at 4:06 pm

huh?!strange ground is evolving…congratulations it evolved into idiot head whit a plant dog thing?

Tom on September 13, 2012 at 9:49 pm

should made roaches instead of banelings!

Randomman on September 15, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Lol Joe I love how you’re always so excited on every new web comic, but when I look at the title of the comic and it’s always so depressing lmao

J on September 15, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Ha, I KNEW that there was gonna be Banelings. Just didn’t expect them to be so useless…Also, those machines sure figured out the weapon pretty fast.

Don Quixote on September 16, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Ah sorry, forgot I had an account. That was me just above this comment

donbionicle on September 16, 2012 at 7:53 pm

You know who we haven’t seen for a while? Andrius, we haven’t seen him for a few scenes now, and I’m very curious to know what’s happening with him and the family he’s controlling.
