i’m pretty sure artist joe knows how to keep the surprise by reading everyone comments and going a different way. VERY good quality and one of the things that keeps me coming back to thepocalypse!

Yes! Finally, some background music. I always thought the scenes were kind of… empty without any bg music while they were talking.

I’ve been wondering about this, what happens to vampires when they don’t feed?
And how did Andy survive for so long in the Jail cell without any food?

Yay I can finally comment after reading all the other comics! I love this series! It’s so dark but funny at the same time! I’m tired as hell but I just wanted to say I think Margaret, Phillip’s mom, is the other sheeelllll…

@randomguy
if i recall correctly, andy, before he was infected with the zombie virus, was just going to let himself die in his isolation. We know vampires are nigh immortal when they feed, so it probably slowly kills them to not eat, like it would with us. Andy survived in the cell for so long, presumably without food, due to the zombie virus. Doc explained how it worked at some point, using lots of smiling bloodcells

Wow… Doc is hostile…

On a side note, Author Joe, if you see this, would there be a way to buy and/or download these? This is a really cool series, but I can’t access them everywhere I go because of the limits on the internet’s range. I’d love to have it saved on my computer, bought a chapter at a time? Just a thought and a hope :)

Why let them have a luxury boat? I’d rather just drift into the sea with a regular boat. This is soooo confusing I mean wouldn’t that ATTRACT the zombies as well as other things?

“We’re thinking about having chapters available for mobile devices but there’s some work involved since nothing supports Flash these days”

*cough* Android *cough*

has supported Flash ever since 2.2 (Froyo). Apple customers can run Flash players.

@mecca vanwyck im not really sure if the zombies can swim, the machines probably wouldnt wanna waste their time, and they already have a vampire problem, and i dont think a regular boat would have enough fuel capacity and/or carry their stuff.

Hey Joe,
Not sure if you will see this but I am a late-comer to your comic and absolutely love it! I am fully caught up and missed the deadline to donate to The Pocalypse Tower Defense II. Is there any way to still donate and get the perks from indiegogo? I would really like to support the cause! Keep up the good work, and I am sharing this comic with all my friends at the local comic shop. Rave reviews so far from everyone!

Whoah! Hold it right there Joe, saying no mobile platform supports flash is an overstatement. Android, which is the most widespread mobile is supports flash.

I personally think, however that it should be possible to port you series to some other format, making it more versatile, but I do not know which that should be.

Easy to use? Last I heard Flash was fairly complicated and a bit of a bother.

Well, I’ve noticed that the only thing connecting Philip’s story and Joe’s story are the zompires. (Or vampires, I forgot.) Anyway, nice webcomic, Joe!

Umm… is the webcomic still going? Because you haven’t updated in an entire week, and you say you’ll update 2-4 times a week.

Hey Joe, I bet you still do some considerations about the Pocalypse while packing; watching the old ones i realized i don’t think i’ve seen joe use his wristblades more than once (the first time) could you please let him use those again, it was super awesome IMO :D

Good luck with packing, i know moving is hard, though it is hard to wait when youre an addict, LoL XD

@Lil’ T
Don’t worry, Joe hasn’t let us down yet. Occasionally, with the trips to Japan and Canada, he’s taken a bit of time, but he’s always back around and ready to deliver more before too long!

@Joe – Ah, okay. That’s completely understandable! Keep up the good work, and make sure you don’t forget anything (or anyone) important when you’re packing!
@Bloodwolf7 – Yep! I just hope his plane or boat doesn’t have any zompires stowing aboard! Watch your back Joe!!!

@Joe
I think it will take you longer than you think to recover from your move. My family and I lived in Korea for a few years, and, even with trips back to the states, it still took us over a week just for our time clocks to get on what a normal schedule would be here. Personally, I would plan on not being able to do too much, between unpacking and the time change, for at least a week, possibly two. That said, coming from an addicted readers mouth, please don’t take too long, but coming from the part of me that can think rationally right now, take the time you need to get settled. That’s more important than the comic, because if you’re not settled before you resume work, uploads are going to be horribly infrequent. :) Oh, and I hope all is well in the land of the rising sun as you prepare for one of your last rising suns there.
Best wishes,
Blackmoon845

Don’t worry Joe, I agree with Blackmoon845 here, take all the time you need! Especially with your wife and little one, it could be even worse to get back onto a regular schedule. No worries man, we’ll all be waiting patiently.
