Rapture! | May 21, 2011

by Joe

So, the end of the world is coming on May 21, apparently. Eastern Standard Time? It’s been May 21 here in Japan for over 8 hours.

According to this guy, the end of the world is coming on May 21, at 6PM on the International Dateline. So, pretty soon! Just like December 21, 2012, I’m sure most people don’t expect anything to happen, but I’m sure we’re all curious as to see what actually does/will happen. And, I’m sure there are people out there (including myself) that WANT something to happen. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to see mass death and destruction, but I want SOMETHING to happen. With all the hype surrounding these dates (especially December 21, 2012), the sun better change colour or aliens better come and say “hey, what’s up?” in their Independence Day-like spaceships.

Honestly, though, I dont expect anything to happen in the next few hours. The above article said it best, so I’m just going to quote them:

“In short, if you add two and subtract for leap year (noting there is no year zero), then multiply by three (because of the Holy Trinity), then you have something infallible. See, he’s done the math. The math is in the Bible. The Bible is infallible. Discussion over.

It’s the magic of arbitrary facts — they start to support themselves after a while.”

Good ol’ arbitrary facts from an old story book that’s chock-full of numbers :D I hope that in 2000 years, people look back on The Pocalypse and deduce that the hexadecimal colour values of Powerfist’s bandana, when added together, pinpoint the precise moment of the implosion of the entire universe!

Anyways, the next scene will be up in a few hours. Just wanted to post something before it’s too late!

Stay safe and smart always, regardless of the date! :D

UPDATE: Enjoy Scene 23 – “Joe’s Better Half”!

Please continue to vote! :D Bug’s sketch is still the incentive! Thank you for voting everyday!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook (check out our paper doll pictures! Send me your own pics, too!), Twitter and RSS, too!

Have a great weekend and SURVIVE! ;D

One Sunday morning, I found a chronology of apocalipse predictions: it turns out, we (mankind) have been waiting for the end throughout our entire recorded history. What is wrong with us, why do we do this to ourselves? Anyway, next apocalipse is 21 12 2012, and after that, I bet there will be another one…

Now I’m not just saying this because I’m on a website about the ‘pocalypse, ok? Don’t anyone dare say that. I want a zombie apocalypse. I really do. Like, I prefer regular life, to be honest, but if I have to choose an apocalypse, that’s the one I’m going to survive. Discuss.

Actually if I was going to choose an Apocalypse to survive it would be a Terry Brooks: Running With the Demon –> Sword of Shannara; Full blown magic coming into world type Apocalypse.
Why? Because I would like to become a Magi of some sort, save people, and fly on the wind!

I don’t know if anyone else noticed, but doesn’t ‘the guy’ mentioned in the post look a LOT like Mr. Burns from Simpsons (pay attention on his shadow)? Just an observation.

much like 19something when people thought the world was gonna end when the planets allighned. happens all the time, and there’s still some other movies to prove it. apocoliptic era will either come when sun melts the earth when it expands, or when we wipe eachother out with antimatter bombs.

Hmm… I doubt anything will happen. There have been hundreds of thousands of doomsday predictions, most notable by Nostradamus, wich turned out to be wrong. And as for Nostradamus, almost everyone of his other predictions, Including the start of one of the World Wars, was correct.

You know, one of these days people will stop believing all these doomsday foretellings
….. and that year will be the year that the end will finally come

I’d like a robot apocalypse, please. Why?

1) In the back of your mind you’d know that we brought it on ourselves by creating the Machines and forgetting to incorporate the three laws of robotics

2) Robots are gonna have lasers. And they’re made of metal. The fights are gonna be awesome.

3) If they win, a superior intelligence will inherit the Earth. And we’d sort of get credit for creating them. Who knows, maybe they’ll incorporate humans into the legends they download to their robo-children?

Its common for people to have a part of them hope for an apocalypse to try to be a hero, to feel al that rush and excitement of being the last people on Earth, I personally woul love a pocalypse like we have here, now that would be epic

Haha! “What are Husbands for?” best line to end it with and I’m really glad to have found this webstie just out of sheer boredom to pass the time while looking for a tower defense game and sure enough I found The Pocalypse Defense Game and once I finished it I just had to read the webcomics. Sure enough I fell in love with it and I can’t wait for the next episode, so hurry up and make it Joe!!!!

Love,
David =D

My favorite Doomsday prophecy was when Nostradamus predicted the world would end in 2000! Sure worked out that way, didn’t it?

Also, still enjoying this comic alongside my other daily commitments which is pretty cool I guess.

I didn’t even know there was an invisible apocalypse happening!
But now, Joe appears fine. This hopefully means Rosa can stay on our side for the time being. Leading to possible riots and whatnot. Coo.

I just want to let you all know the rapture came, there was a great light the heavens opened and a chariot of angels came down. And when they asked me to come with them, I told them I couldn’t because I wanted to see the next The Pocalypse Update. Then the Angels agreed that this comic is so awesome at They would wait another 50 years.

Willy, if your going to make fun of other people’s grammar and spelling, then at least spell properly yourself.

Also, oscar, STOP SPAMMING, Joe has more important things to do then make comics constantly, on top of that, he is both married and has a child, the webpage clearly says that he updates on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday so don’t expect him to do early updates unless stated otherwise.

Also, please stop censoring your swearing, there are no children present, and if there are, they would have already heard someone say it multiple times since this is the Internet.

Can’t wait to see how new hammerston copes with Rosa. She’s a vampire who will try to feed on anything with blood should her thirst get out of hand

I can only see one way out for Joe;
Joe;”Sorry, you kept on saying in your sleep, ‘Mary me, mary me.’ I’m not sure, but I think that it was the hunger deprivation.”
Rosa;”Oh my god.”
Joe;”You actually tried to kiss me.”
Rosa;”Oh my god!”
Joe;”And worse, you started to drool, and there wern’t any rags I could use, so I had to use my bandana.”
Rosa;”EEW!”
Joe;”Yeah, I can still feel that wet spot.”

The end of the world may not be the end of the world. The planet will still be a planet possibly. Just we won’t be on it. The end of human resources (water electricity etc.) at the current consumption will happen 2021
