The Pocalypse is 5! :O | October 13, 2015

by Joe

I wanted to get Chapter 9 started for The Pocalypse’s 5th birthday but I couldn’t make it! Better late than never though! :D

The Pocalypse started on 10/10/10 and it still amazes me how much has changed in 5 short years – in the comic, the community, and myself and my family. It always brightens my day when readers from day one leave a comment and show their support, especially during times of severe slowdown. Who knows where we’ll be 5 years from now but I’ll always appreciate the kind words and support from readers – both old and new :D

Yup, after allllllll this time, the story continues! I know that today’s scene will be considered short but please expect them to be a bit shorter going forward as I try to build up a surplus of scenes to maintain a steady update schedule. Either that or I’ll just keep making them as I go since shorter scenes obviously don’t take as long to make. Regardless of how I’m going to make it work, my main goal for The Pocalypse for the short-term future is constant updates :D

Also, I’m sure you’ve all noticed the site’s design change! This was done to accommodate long-term future plans and just for a fresh new look :D I’d love to hear what you think and if you run into any problems! After all, I did the coding haha

Enjoy Scene 1 – “A New Breed”!

YAY YOU’RE BACK

Hey Joe I’m so glad I decided to check up on The Pocalypse today. Yes, you are right, it is a very short scene… But I definitely did not see that coming. If my faith in this comic has ever wavered, it is renewed.

Badass Rosa Forever!
All hail The Badass!

Also… first XD

So. She’s now somewhere between a vampire and a dryad, I think. Definitely going to stir things up, and maybe Gorb can do that to other beings without utterly destroying them. I’m certain this has a downside, of course, since every other state here does (humans are just plain weaker than the others, in place of specific material vulnerabilities, for example).

So Rosa is now a Vampire, Human, Zombie, And a plant? IMHO, she was at least the 4th strongest even before this change (Behind Joe, Sam, and Victor). Not sure how this form compares to Victor as he is doubtlessly weakened in his current state.

So that’s you’re aim. By the time this story ends, just about every mix n’ match possibility will have happened.
But I do have a question: is Rosa still human? I’d figure she lost that status when she became a vampire.

I imagine that Gorb has the same voice as Abathur from Starcraft 2… or maybe Groot :D

Ya know what? I’ll take this as a late birthday present. It’s more than worth the wait.

Good golly, I’m excited! It’s interesting to think of what could be going on here. Rosa’s sudden change of tone at the end of her conversation with Gorb… that has some rather interesting implications.
