STARTOFF and the Plant Ball! :D | October 23, 2012

by Joe

Thank you so much for continuing to vote for Green Pixel 5 times daily for the StartOff competition! http://startoff.ca/vote As I write this, we’re in 3rd place, we’ve been 1st for a good stretch of time, and we have over 10,000 votes! Let’s get back to #1! The competition ends on October 31 so I should be able to get 1 or 2 more scenes up before then. But please don’t wait for a new scene to vote, you can vote everyday! :D

Thank you for the plant brain ball names too! There were a lot of great ones but I managed to pick my favourite five:

– Gorb – Short for “Green Orb”, this clever name is simple and makes sense!
– Lilly – Is the plant a male or female? Neither? Does it matter? This is a very fitting name for a plant :D
– Pan – the Greek god of nature, this name is quite flattering for a vine-spitting plant ball! I like it :D
– Florence – A very cute name for a plant! Sounds very friendly and the plant -is- very friendly… right?
– Bill – Scrufflebeck got such a complicated name, let’s keep this one short and sweet :D

Vote for your favourite name here in the forums and the winner will be the plant brain ball’s name (can’t wait to not have to type “plant brain ball” anymore :D)! Voting will close when the next scene is up.

And please, please vote for Green Pixel FIVE TIMES DAILY for the StartOff competition! http://startoff.ca/vote We’re almost done! :D

Enjoy Scene 3 – “Breakfast With Jake”!

So if anyone still had any doubts about Annika being Joe’s sister, they probably have fewer now ( he remembers his real name?). Didn’t expect to make it first. Big deal.
I don’t know about the plant’s name, though. I’ll give it a thought. Althought I know Joe would most likely head towards the Gorb part more than anything else.

I was about to sock someone when I thought you were going to leave the other brother’s name as a cliffhanger for another episode. I was literally thinking “OH COME ON! IT’S SO OBVIOUS WHO IT IS! AND YOU’RE GONNA DO -THAT- TO US??” But then she said it and I thought “Oh… she said it… nevermind…”
Anyway, great page as ever, dat sibling-ness. I wonder what will happen if/when they see eachother.

Thank you for finally giving that to us, Joe! I think most of us have been expecting it, but it’s nice to finally get a little resolve after so much cliff hanging.
Early congratulations on the Startoff win. Looks like you’ll end up in the top 3 for sure.

And then it turns out his real name is Joey or Joenathan and she only calls him Joe as a nickname and OUR Joe isn’t actually her brother. :D

Finally she says “Joe”!
I hope she unites with him somehow soon!

And it might help him with remembering his past life!

Sorry for double post but i needed to.

But, Random Guy, is it likely for a person’s relative to have the same name and resemblance of the person at the same time?

INB4 Joe only walks around town with his bandanna on and never actually sees Annika himself.

And here I was, starting to think that Author Joe got was just getting a kick out of his little run around with Annika and Joe. Finally, somn a bit firmer to grasp on to. But still, it’s not proof is it?

@bobsickle Let’s not give any ideas now, shall we?

Oh WOW. And here I pretty much JUST SAID that it’s more likely to be that other girl that showed up from the other colony. But then again, perhaps it could be a different Joe… Ya know, with your twists and turns in this story (and I gotta say, you do an incredible job with them!), I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the wrong Joe. ;)

And by the way, since I’m a bit of an indecisive guy, I am going to say that my favorite names for the plant are Gorb, Pan, and Bill, all because they fit except for Bill which is just funny in my opinion. XD

You introduce way too many characters and try to make just as many plots at once. It’s getting hard to follow the story (especially if you don’t post anything for some time), and some of the stuff is… well, a bit boring, to be honest. This scene is a good example – sure, it’s nice to finally find out that the girl is (probably) Joe’s sister, but do we really have to spend so much time on not-so-interesting characters as Scott? Just saying: this comic has a lot of potential and could be one of the best, but sometimes I just feel like watching a soap opera. And that’s not very good, is it?

for all of you who for some reason aren’t voting, use Joe finally admiting that Joe (minor joke, stop with the annoyed stares) is annika’s sister as an excuse

One last thing, Joe(Author Joe), please, we all love your plot twists, but keep Joe(Powerfist) as Anika’s sister. I’m begging you, we all want to see this happen.

Am I a bit late with the name thing? But I came up with V.I.N.E but I didn’t know where to put it (turns out to be in the comments -_-) So we should call it VINE or Very Intelligent Neuro Emplacement. ;)

AND IN ZE NEXT EPISODE, ANNIKA’S JOE IS DEAD OR ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COUNTRY (Or a zompire by now and plotting to get to New Hammerstone and going ballistic.)

Gotta fo with either Pan or Bill for the plant orb. Pan more than Bill though, simply because Bill doesn’t have much reasoning behind it, other than it’s funny and simple. Pan, though, the Orb is the spokesman for all plants, much like Pan was. And also, I think you’ll end up winning the vote off thing. You have all these adoring fans who can take a minute or two out of their day to click a button 5 times.

I punched my laptop when Marie interrupted. I’m sad now… But, that seemed too simple… Will it even be the same Joe?
