Run for Your… Flags! | August 6, 2011

by Joe

There’s a special race going on in Baltimore (USA) this fall. Like any other race, there’s a finish line. But, unlike any other race, the runners have to run from zombies! Check out the “Run For Your Lives” 5k obstacle race website! I thought this was an awesome idea when I first heard of it. Participants have to run from fast-moving “zombies” while protecting their flags, er… lives :D

I wish I could participate, but Baltimore is a little too far :D Is anyone closer to the location going or is interested in going? Are there other events like this around the world? (Possibly closer to Japan? :D)

Enjoy Scene 2 – “Weak Minds”!

Please continue to vote and get yourself a Cubert wallpaper! :D Thank you for voting everyday!

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

Give Scrufflebeck a good home by buying a Scrufflebeck keychain! They’re now available for CDN$10 in the store :D Thanks for your support!

Have a great weekend! :D

Hahaha, thanks Real Joe, you answered my question about the eyes pretty quickly. ;)

I didn’t expect Joe to have mind powers, he’s strangely similar to vampires. Probably some kind of hybrid ? Well, that would be a cliché, I’d rather another explanation.

I like Dominik too, he’s interesting. He’s not the typical bad guy, because he seems trustworthy (well, to what extent, we don’t know…). I like characters like him, neither good nor bad, very powerful but not without flaws (he’s actually in a displeasing situation), so he dosen’t seem invincible.

@andrew, You see I can right real comments too. And while I like the Pocalypse a lot, I feel like sometimes the story moves to fast for me. Personally I enjoy a slower story, and what I mean by that is, withen a few episodes you let loose a zompire who began creating ranks, killed one sweet suit, and then split off into three different story lines. While I feel like the story is great, and I like what you are doing, there is a large ammount of detail I feel like I am missing, like a backstory or lore that the world can have that I dont quite get the feel for. But thats just me being a nerd who likes heavy details, you keep doing what you are doing Joe, and I feel like it will be great. Also I still commented first, because its fun, try it sometime ;).

Woah awesome scene (as always) i kinda like Joe and Dominik Duo i wonder what task does he have for him, its probably gonna be something heavy to do for Joe.But most likely he asks Joe to kill Andy.Anyway i guess well have to wait and see before we can be certain.Always ready for another scene :D

I realy wonder what Dominik wants… He did say that since he wasnt killing for Joe, he wouldnt make Joe kill for him… and I doubt that he wants Joe to release him, since he kinda surrendered himself for the chance that Doc could cure him of zombieness. So I wonder what it is he wants? He must want something NOW, cause otherwise he wouldnt be helping Joe, just to have a spare favor in his back pocket.

Wow I was expecting more of a surge so the scanner wouldn’t work properly but Jedi mind tricks are amazing too, and as for the race it sounds tempting considering any age range pretty much qualifies, right now I only live a few hours away but unfortunately I’ll be moving to Louisiana for college, then the difference is a day or so, who knows maybe I’ll sign up anyway. I mean adventure is out there!

@Edward (all the way at the top :P)
The voice was obviously the elder not OJ. The elder even told OJ that he was going to go and greet him when he got back

I’m surprised that they didn’t rig their scanner to trip some major alarms when a vampire is detected.

….. this episode was very…….. informative…….
………Samuel could he be…….. Joe’s father….?
Perhaps what Dominic desires is not unrelated to the human blood farm Bernie found, that, and
The Slayer’s return home

when the pocalypse finishes (witch i hope it dusnt for a long time) can you make them in to one long movie or sum-thing (you have to add a cup-poll of extre bits to it if you do do that though(to make it make more sence as a movie))

the elders said “I am not Killing for you, so I will not ask you to kill for me.
but what he is doing is bringing Joe, so I think he will ask Joe to free him from the professor.

Didn’t Andrius respect the ancient laws when he decided not to kill Dominik HIMSLEF but to get another to do so? I wonder if Andrius was an even bigger scum in the past than we know…

Hey Edward! Joe always updates the scenes more or less during the same period! Weekends HAVE no updates! It’s Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. You have to be patient during Saturday and Sunday as that period is the longest period in between scenes!

@Edward people generally don’t like hearing complaining. However we all are probably as impatient for the scene as you.
I generally catch the scene between dinnertime and bedtime, that or just in the morning if I go to sleep early. (I live under the Mountain Timezone in the US)
If I’m lucky I can catch the comic right before leaving work, out of curiosity when in your daily schedules’ does everybody catch The Pocalypse?

@Edward – please stop complaining. this is not a forum for you to voice your displeasure with joe’s chosen schedule. it is a forum for the discussion of this comic, not the lack of the next one. no one wants to read about how unhappy you are. unless perhaps, it relates to some sort of mental anguish brought on by the story of this webcomic. I suppose that would be fair game. Also double posting is considered a sign of extreme impatience in civilized regions of the internet, so you might want to also stop that.

@Aethrys – my thoughts exactly. if that were the case that also could be a clue as to why joe exists in the first place, and why he was abandoned in a medical facility so near to bernie/jess’s base and the settlement.
