Great work Joe
2 month update milestone!
Greetings Fellow Pocalypsians
Loving the story so far!

Thanks for the Track! 10/27/2011

by Joe

A huge thank you goes out to AJP3 for the track that you hear at the beginning of today’s scene! :D

I’ve actually had this track (and a few others!) for about 10 months and I’ve FINALLY found a proper situation to use it in! I’ve also had submissions from others and I haven’t found the perfect scenes to use them in yet. But, their times will come! :D Thank you for your submissions!

If you want to submit any tracks I can use, please free to e-mail them to me! Something light-hearted and casual (I have no idea how to describe music :D) would be nice, but anything goes!

Enjoy Scene 31 – “The Magister – Part One”!

Please continue to vote and check out the new Scrufflebeck’s sketch! :D Thank you for voting everyday!

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

Keep playing BlockHopper beta and please keep sending us feedback! Thanks for playing! :D


the plot thickens.so joe was designed as a new body for sam?

SeymoreAsses on October 27, 2011 at 6:21 pm

yeah first. and man i want to know more.give me more info on sam…. please?

hellhound on October 27, 2011 at 6:21 pm

damn., just one tiny second to late

hellhound on October 27, 2011 at 6:22 pm

Yeah, more info on me!

Sam on October 27, 2011 at 6:37 pm

Just a small typo where Samuel says I do not know who you are. You put I do not know who your are. One letter but I thought I’d say it. Great job Joe. I just have to say don’t stretch yourself too thin in these projects of yours from doing the Pocalypse please.

gunsmen45 on October 27, 2011 at 6:42 pm

@gunsmen45 – Thanks for the catch! Fixed! :D

Joe on October 27, 2011 at 6:51 pm

What? NO! It can’t end there!! I have to wait for the next one now? HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME JOE?!

Tsuris on October 27, 2011 at 6:54 pm

Sam was made immortal. His old bodies die off, so new bodies are forged for him. That’s how he is hundreds of years old!

RicksterEpicWin on October 27, 2011 at 7:15 pm

Wooow MOOOAR GIMME MOAR INFO.Im interested in the story and in the twists rather than action but if u could bring more action i would be very happy.

Dagzter on October 27, 2011 at 7:21 pm

Doubt i’m the first to think this, but it’s looking like Joe’s body was stolen by ‘them’ for Sam. But Sam was expecting a ‘fresh’ body (cloned mabye?) with no prior occupant..

Idunyken on October 27, 2011 at 7:24 pm

@RicksterEpicWin: Ahh, but Sam said last page that he requires no ‘physical form’ to sustain him ;)

Idunyken on October 27, 2011 at 7:26 pm

You realize author joe does that (end scene just after plot turning) so readers will keep reading. and it’s a good strategy too.
Anyways, i figure joe was a person that was captured by vampires and then used as a “vessel” for sam
Also, with sam back in control, joe took control of cubert’s body as a host. i bet inner joe didn’t think of creating a body! Thumbs up by me joe XD

Decifer on October 27, 2011 at 7:27 pm

oooohhh cant wait for the next scene

earl pineda on October 27, 2011 at 8:22 pm

i agree with joe :/ dude gtfo you already had a life now stop whining and give it back!

Barbaric Bob on October 27, 2011 at 8:32 pm

When I first started reading this comic last year (when there were only three scenes, I found it kind of fun, but not really great. Still, I added it to my weekly list of webcomics. Now, over a year later, a real plot has developed, there’s real tension and danger, the writing has improved (your people feel like real people, and the banter is WAY better) and things are generally better. So yeah, what I’m trying to say good sir, is that this comic possibly wins the “most improved” award in my book, and is now among my favorites.

Guvnorium on October 27, 2011 at 8:53 pm


Nick on October 27, 2011 at 8:54 pm

So… now we have body-snatching telepaths as well as the vampires, killer plants, zombies, mutants hybrids and possible werewolves? What’s next? Aliens?

Noble 7 on October 27, 2011 at 9:07 pm

Hm, my theory was almost right. I could never imagine that Sam was THIS old, but well, it is said that vampires are as old as the humankind. Now the intriguing part, if Joe was somehow “designed” to be Sam’s new body, how he ended up with that “inner Joe” inside him and he has memories, so it is a new soul/mind, different from Sam’s one. The vampires must have done some very nasty things to Joe’s mom. Can’t wait for the next parts.

Vitor on October 27, 2011 at 9:47 pm

@Guvnorium – Thanks! I also think things have improved! Like everything else, writing gets better with experience and the feedback I’ve gotten from all of you has been more helpful than any writing class! I’ve never taken a writing class, but I’m sure reader feedback is much better :D

Joe on October 27, 2011 at 9:52 pm

It’s possible that sam IS inner joe, but was originally only partially awakened due to Joe’s mind being there. When the mind-bomb was set, it may have triggered something, and joe being shot broke the suppression. Inner joe, until then, was more like an unrestrained subconscious, with no checks on emotions. Now…well, sam is reasonable.

Some Guy on October 27, 2011 at 11:38 pm

Is Katherine… Andrius’s mom?

Shade Person on October 28, 2011 at 1:23 am

The classic cliff hanger that author Joe is known for,*sigh* I’ve missed that. In other news Sam does seem to have some type of deal with vampires, and we’ve already met Katherine who is an exile, and this whole magister title is intriguing, the plot thickens!

SpiritOfAdventure on October 28, 2011 at 1:32 am

So many mysteries… but I have a feeling that we’re about to find out why Katherine and her buddies were exiled.

What I wonder about is what happened to Other Joe.

Zach on October 28, 2011 at 1:59 am

Wait Old Empire? New World? is this a reference to America and the British Empire?

Ashendant on October 28, 2011 at 2:01 am

Wait… what?
that’s all I can say right now…

NeoWarrior on October 28, 2011 at 5:38 am

We now know more questions.
Time to wait for answers.
Then theories can be made in full.

sh4d0wfl4re on October 28, 2011 at 7:18 am

I wish there could be more pocalypse!

Brenkie on October 28, 2011 at 7:35 am

Well, Dominick did mention a ‘Samuel” as the only other human known who could enter the mindowrld. Guess this is him, maybe?

Chilingsworth on October 28, 2011 at 12:56 pm

I like that Joe’s form is just a crude as his personality. I dunno, but it’d be cool if he ended up becoming a villain.

Locke on October 28, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Good old Joe … no character development at all. Always the same blockhead … *snicker*
I wonder what this will lead up to.

SatyreIkon on October 28, 2011 at 3:39 pm

@Shade Person
Andrius killed his mother,and Katherine is alive.

Mr. Samuel. There are loads of bodies waiting for a soul. Then I ask you,WHY DO YOU CHOOSE THE BEST ONE? *Middle finger*
I want Joe – the REAL Joe – back D:

Happy Vampire on October 29, 2011 at 1:32 am

I just remember who he is!! When they were in Joe’s mind the elder told him that he wasent the first person to enter the dream world…. but i never thougt he woud come in to the story… and now i want to know more! O.O Great work Joe!!! xD

frida on October 29, 2011 at 1:41 am

Niiicee, love this comic, watched it from the beginning about halfway through chapter 2, also, cool! New music, was a little tired of the dream music.

SpeedTheCat on October 29, 2011 at 5:33 am

@Guvnorium: Oh hey, good to know one of the people I showed this to on the forums is actually reading this.

Aethrys on October 29, 2011 at 5:54 am

Okay, who were the people who looked up Zoe on the Akinator. I thought I had it tricked untill it came up with 3 previous uses.

bobsickle on October 29, 2011 at 6:52 am

btw, i have an idea for a new donate banner! why dont you do scrufflebeck charging against one of those freaky mutant wolves and killing it? it would be fun! ^.^

LucarioGuy1195 on October 29, 2011 at 7:45 am

@Aethrys That you MoK? Man, it’s been like a year since I’ve seen you anywhere on the internets! I’m about to become active on the Urealms forum again, so maybe I’ll see you there.

Guvnorium on October 29, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Why not make a biginig theme song it would make it even cooler then it really is!! :D
You could also make a new hero that can’t be infected because he has anti-bodies!! Just a thought.

Christian on October 30, 2011 at 3:46 am

OH!! Go on youtube and type in let’s kick it up, I’m sure you’ll like it! ;)

Christian on October 30, 2011 at 3:49 am

@Chillingsworth:Noooooooooooooo. You THINK?

Dreamdealer on October 30, 2011 at 6:33 am

I keep coming back to this page…this tune is addictive :D I’ve even started singing along “Joes heeere..joesgonnakickyourass” in my head :P
