Hey! You get a trophy for posting first and failing to contribute anything to a conversation! We all envy you.
Anyway… interesting update. For a mother who’s concerned about her kids loss of innocence, she sure isn’t afraid to swear in front of him.

Willy on April 16, 2011 at 2:12 pm

awww i didnt know about the beta test of the game:(
oh well i like how it kinda ended…..i wander who that vampire is:P

scavenger on April 16, 2011 at 2:14 pm

no that was to short. i hope the vampire go for rusty. but Annika is bleeding so that is where the vamp will go.

oliver on April 16, 2011 at 2:19 pm

I hope rusty gets killed in the night, not any of the others :s

Ollie on April 16, 2011 at 2:21 pm

I think she is trying to keep him innocence, in doing so she is keep a part of her innocence so she can stand what is happening around her.

oliver on April 16, 2011 at 2:24 pm

Um is it just me or did this vamp seem a bit I don’t know sincere? I mean are they like that or is this one being sadistic? But yet I get the feeling that something is going to happen to Anikika or maybe Rusty will wake up and do something. Then again they are all out cold and the vamp is maybe doing some mind mojo stuff.

sykes on April 16, 2011 at 2:25 pm

i just cant wait till Cthulhu come and eat them all. Cthulhu rocks. but cathulhu is cuter.

oliver on April 16, 2011 at 2:27 pm

This vampire appears to be sorry to do some sucking, so I’m guessing it’s Rosa. Hopefully.

Chaotick on April 16, 2011 at 2:34 pm

it isn’t Rosa, there are piles upon piles of evidence, and this may be a vamp that didn’t want to become a vamp in the first place.

lukesf on April 16, 2011 at 2:43 pm

I kinda hope the werewolf wakes up and kicks the vamps butt!!
(but only after it eats the kid or rusty)

Eastar on April 16, 2011 at 4:28 pm

Help me Obi-Wan, you’re my only hope.

MorganrBan on April 16, 2011 at 5:08 pm

you wrote “you we’re going to kill me” in the beginning of the scene. you should correct that, joe.

grammar nazi on April 16, 2011 at 6:25 pm

Typo. “Those ‘fuckers’ we’re” WERE, NOT WE ARE

Josh on April 16, 2011 at 7:52 pm

@grammar nazi & Josh – Thanks! Fixed! Wow, two “we’re/were” violations in one scene. I’m slippin’! :D

Joe on April 16, 2011 at 7:57 pm

shh only dreams now

scaramousche on April 16, 2011 at 9:34 pm

I notice the donation banner has a glitch. When you mouse over Doc the speech bubble comes from where he was at the last spot on the line.

Noblaum on April 16, 2011 at 10:51 pm

Hmm, hasn’t it been established that a zompire looks ugly as shit? Probably not Rosa, if nothing weird is going on here.

PolarWarrior, Destroyer of Yukon economies on April 16, 2011 at 11:16 pm

Looks like the vampire is either going to kill one or multiple depending on its last feeding, I wouldn’t be surprised if Rusty was one of the victims but I would be even less surprised if real-Joe pulled a twist and had someone else die, plot-twists are nice

SpiritOfAdventure on April 17, 2011 at 12:16 am

seriously joe try deadfrontier.com its wicked awesome

mikelord356 on April 17, 2011 at 2:03 am

Now is the time that Rusty does the honorable thing… He wakes up and tries to go all ‘blade’ on the vampire only to die right as Jan wakes up D; Just kidding! I’m looking forward to the next scene xD. This animation (Animated comic?) is awesome~

Cori on April 17, 2011 at 2:24 am

the game could be a great birthdar present can you make it exactly at my birth day 6/11/11

niko on April 17, 2011 at 2:46 am

@Noblaum – I had to do that on purpose :D The speech bubble would appear above Doc and point at him, as it should, but then the bubble would get cut off as it extended beyond the banner. Something to keep in mind for the next banner, though! Thanks for letting me know :D
@mikelord356 – Heh heh, no time! It does look pretty awesome, though. Hope to get around to it soon! :D
@niko – It’ll be out much sooner than that! (If all goes to plan!)

Joe on April 17, 2011 at 8:22 am

That vamp-Girl seems pretty sweet… Her way of speeking makes me think that she would cower in the corner if she were found and start asking for forgiveness… HeartBreaking even!

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on April 17, 2011 at 10:43 am

Help me, Greybane, you are my only hope!

That’s better :P

Anyway, I really like this comic/game so far, it is proving to be quite epic! I can’t wait for the story to unfold :)

And, just a crack theory here, but what if the vampire is actually Joe’s sibling? He DID say he had both a brother and a sister. And I doubt it is Rosa. So why the hell not? :P We see new characters, so why not ANOTHER new character? It would be about time! Also…

@Cori: I think that might happen if he wakes up. He might be an ass, but I think he would do it. I don’t like him, but I pity him and stories like this need characters like him. :)

Lubiniki on April 17, 2011 at 5:06 pm

Of the couple zombie apocalypse and vampire movies I’ve seen, the assholes usually get what they deserve in the end. So don’t worry, Rusty will eventually get what he deserves.

Draconita on April 17, 2011 at 10:25 pm

JOE date says 14/16/2011 i dont think there are that many months in a Yr

mutant hunter on April 18, 2011 at 11:10 am

@mutant hunter – What about Smarch and May II? :D (It says 04 for me. Weird! Anybody else seeing 14/16/2011?)

Joe on April 18, 2011 at 1:01 pm


Locke on April 18, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Nooo Annika nooooo!

I would like Rusty to get his in the long run.

Yinello on April 18, 2011 at 4:12 pm

personally, i like rusty, he’s trying to survive, not preserve the world that’s gone, like the rest of these saps, long live rusty!

wasteland hermit on April 18, 2011 at 8:22 pm

Rusty must survive! Honestly, I want both him and Annika to survive. Jan and the child probably should but… Well, I just like the former two more for some odd reason. Annika has barely even spoke yet I still like her more.
