The Pocalypse Turns One! :D | October 12, 2011

by Joe

I’ve been doing the comic for a whole year now! Happy birthday to The Pocalypse! :D

I cant believe it’s already been a year. It’s been ridiculously eventful, especially since my son was born when The Pocalypse was only a few months old! It feels like I have two babies now :D Both need attention and I can’t imagine my life without either of them. Time flies when you’re having fun, eh? :D

I can’t thank every one of you enough for all of the support you’ve given me and The Pocalypse this year. I couldn’t do this without you all. Thank you for all the feedback, the comments, the e-mails, the forum posts, the store purchases, the donations, the ad clicks, spreading the word, and for reading! :D Knowing that even a handful of people enjoy my little story is fulfilling enough, but having thousands of readers is an overwhelming achievement for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I look forward to The Pocalypse’s future! I’m extremely proud of what I’ve created in a year, so I’m excited to see what another year will bring: more chapters, more games, and more ideas that I want to implement. And now with @hushlorentz and Green Pixel, the possibilities are endless! :D

Here’s to an even better year! And, here’s to you, the best readers any webcomic creator could ask for! :D

In other news, it looks like the overwhelming consensus is to NOT change Scrufflebeck’s name! So, instead of choosing my favourite 5 names, let’s vote on whether Scrufflebeck needs a name change!

Thank you so much for your name suggestions! I probably should have thought of having this vote first! But, I really do appreciate the suggestions and if the votes dictate, I’ll still choose my favourite 5! :D Please vote in the forums!

Enjoy Scene 24 – “Exile”!

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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY THE POCALYPSE!!!! Haven’t been especially active since I joined last year–but look what it’s become in just a year’s time! This is really impressive stuff Joe, and I’m looking forward to more awesomeness from Joe, Jess, Bernie, Scrufflebeck, Andrius and the rest of the Pocalypse crew! Keep it up! ;)

HAPPY f—ING BIRTHDAY!!!! XD
Hey joe, ever think about giving the cast a new looks in the text box? Nothing special, maybe a logo on the shirts (prehaps a ‘P’ on joe’s), or some detail in the hair. Whatever. I feel that would be nice and a small change of pace. Come on!!! Who’s with me?!!?
Anyways… thumbs up me!! XD

Change his name! He’s like a plant monster equivalent of a Super Saiyan! He definitely needs a new moniker. Something like Scrufflebadass.

No name change! after all, you wouldn’t rename a person because of a change in appearance.

Happy Birthday, Pocalypse! Wow! I thought this series was older; seems firmly-rooted in the internet.

Excellent work overall.

I’m not SO against changing Scrufflebeck’s name, though I’d prefer it to remain as is. What I am vehemently against is NICK changing Scrufflebeck’s name. If it changes, it’s got to be Joe who does it. He is not Nick’s dog.

Joyeux Anniversaire à vous mon cher ami!, It has been a while since I have commented I know, but rest assured i am still here, I enjoy your work, but life is somewhat busy these days….I have left my ancestral home for the last time on voluntary exile and taken my beloved wife with me…..we go to see the world!. If we should ever end up in Japan or the U.S. I will let you know yes?, it will be nice to see you in person…….

@those who want Joe revived – think of the timing of things:
1) vote on whether Rosa should let out Ijoe;
2) Ojoe and Ijoe face off, Ijoe is winning;
3) Joe gets shot just as Ojoe takes the lead with Dominik’s aid;
4) Dominik makes big moves spurring;
5) three consecutive votes on main char’s decisions just before;
6) one year anniversary begins;
7) which leads us to:
a) Joe’s return (Ijoe? Ojoe? who knows)
b) other Zompire elders (the female one) or at least detestable exiles
c) Bernie’s past (coming to a head with the Vampiristic turf wars)
d) Jess’s choice in Loyalty (to survival? to love? to whom?)
e) the detestable Doc, Nicks, redemption (perhaps by destruction, perhaps by rehab of some sort)
f) and of course the evolution of scrufflebeck the only true hero present (having strength, loyalty, and purity (i.e. no contradictions in self))
