Three Years and Counting! :D 08/07/2012

by Joe

My wife and I are celebrating our 3rd anniversary today! I feel like we’ve experienced a lifetime’s worth of ups and downs (mostly ups! :D) and I can’t imagine having spent the last three years with anyone else. I love you, Michelle! :D

Now enough mushy stuff! Enjoy Scene 23 – “Beautiful Eyes”!

Want to see an animated .gif of Joe bopping his head with a piece of wood? Vote to see it! :D Please vote for The Pocalypse here everyday! I’m going to try coming up with a new incentive every update (or every few updates) :D Thank you for voting!

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

Amazing scene.. Also… Congrats Joe. Have a great day! =D

So… Is Rosa… Son Gohan?!?!

DramaNoMore on August 7, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Dear Mr. Joe, I’ve been watching your comic for a long time and never got the courage to comment, but I finally have something to ask you! I wanted to know where you downloaded action script from and if you could give me a link please, love your work, keep it coming!

a fan

aidan on August 7, 2012 at 2:53 pm

blah you have like the happiest life ever! Happy anniversary! Hehe. I really wonder whats going to happen next.

Irene on August 7, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Damn Rosa!

anna57272 on August 7, 2012 at 5:43 pm


Not going to say on August 7, 2012 at 9:46 pm

this si going to be epic super vampire rosa vs a elder O_o

Tom on August 7, 2012 at 10:51 pm

1, Happy Anniversary,
2, I think Jess is smart enough to realise that firing missiles at the elder vampire wont work and she would have fired some at the ceiling!!! Come on Author-Joe, you spent years build up you characters dont let it fall now…..
3, I could think of other ways this could work…thinks about doc and EMP intervention?!?

Still following on August 7, 2012 at 11:18 pm

@Still Following

Most likely Jess was panicked when she was firing the missiles (her fear was showing in the last episode). So, it’s more so seeing a glimpse of how Jess isn’t as tough as she pretends to be.

Congratulations on 3 years. I hope you two are having a grand anniversary!

BloodWolf7 on August 8, 2012 at 12:17 am

holy… fuck… ROSA HAS HULK GENES!?!?!?!

weaslecrap on August 8, 2012 at 1:18 am

amazing seen but i wouldve liked to see more stuff about joe and his training cuz thats gonna be epic

edge on August 8, 2012 at 2:25 am

So given the change in Rosa’s eyes. is the black Eyes a signal that she somehow contracted a small amount of Victor’s power through her drinking of Joe’s blood?

Tsumeken on August 8, 2012 at 6:18 am

Oh oh… Did Rosa absorb some of Victor’s powers?

NeoWarrior on August 8, 2012 at 8:54 am

this is awesome joe make some more of it
i want to watch it all night long

Albert on August 8, 2012 at 9:04 am

Joe i want to play Pocalyspe 2

Albert on August 8, 2012 at 9:06 am

Thank you for the well-wishes, everyone! :D
@aidan – There’s actually very little ActionScript used in a scene :D Scenes are created mostly by timeline events and ActionScript does the pause/play duty when dialogue pops up. I would like to create a full tutorial on how to make a scene one day but in the meantime http://www.kirupa.com/ has great Flash resources :D
@Albert – So do I! :D We don’t have a final release date set yet but we’re aiming for December! Thank you for your patience :D

Joe on August 8, 2012 at 10:30 am

I think Rosa has gone a bit Victor! Or is that the zombie DNA finally making an appearance?
Great job Author Joe!

andrew on August 8, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Happy 3rd anniversary man! Hmmmmmm I wonder. Should i do something in 3D for you two? this is basically what i would make if i did. heheheheheheh http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/221/8/9/binding_of_true_love_by_nanaki_murasaki-d5aghko.png

Nanakisan on August 8, 2012 at 2:16 pm

I just spent the last hourish catching up on The Pocalypse… time well spent.
Happy Anniversary for, uh, yesturday? (damn time zones)

Mzilla on August 8, 2012 at 7:38 pm

Rosa finally got MAD..? Interesting….

sh4d0wfl4re on August 8, 2012 at 8:05 pm

So, theory.
Rosa was turned by Cross, who got Black elder powers.
Rosa drank Joe’s blood, containing Joe and Victor powers.
Rosa blasted Elder with white lightning in the dream world.
There were several blackouts whilst Elder was beating Jess.

Rosa = Elder Joe Victor in a little peaceful shell.

Anon on August 9, 2012 at 6:31 am

Woah! Rosa just gave me nightmares 0_0

Artimis456 on August 9, 2012 at 9:38 am

Rosa’s powers have got to be a combination of Joe (Victor) and Andrius.You could see Jess’ fear in her eyes.Guess her tough attitude is just a shell.

@Joe Take as long time u want to finish Pocalypse 2 but after that can we just focus on the comic for some time.I feel like its been moving really slow after you jumped from BlockHopper to Pocalypse 2.

Dagzter on August 9, 2012 at 10:35 am

wow, that’s amazing, i’ve been waiting for this for too long, rosa’s gonna kill the elder otherwise save jess, by the way, happy day @joe

Dr.krillin on August 9, 2012 at 4:36 pm

HOLY CRAP BIG ROSA!! O_O Doc, you suck at stopping a vampire from killing your friend. I would have jumped in that tank at the first sign of him saying no and threatened to drive right over him if he didn’t stop. All he did was look horrified/stunned at what he could have prevented. I’m surprised Jess and the others haven’t realized yet that Doc CHOSE to do this. And Doc hasn’t even told them yet. Idiots. I LOVED what Dominik (is that how it’s spelled) said about Jess’s missiles being fireworks and returning them to her, especially the part about her armor withstanding her own power. And why the heck do people keep comparing Rosa to the Hulk? Al she did was break a few glass objects and machines! She didn’t even bust out of her box yet, so where is the Hulk thing coming from!? O_o And Happy anniversary author Joe! Can’t wait for the next update! By the way, these seem to be getting rather short and far between lately. Could we step it up to more frequent updates like you used to do please?

illeatyourself on August 9, 2012 at 6:39 pm

@Joe Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I find it funny that you said enough mushy stuff and then told us to watch “Beautiful Eyes”. Notice how that sounds when said out loud. XD

illeatyourself on August 9, 2012 at 6:41 pm

*reading scanner* her power level buts thats impossible its over 9000 million *smashes scanner*

anon4647546756 on August 11, 2012 at 5:29 am

Whooo go Rosa go! I can’t wait to see her go all bad-ass!

Yinello on August 11, 2012 at 10:41 am

Kendal on August 11, 2012 at 10:47 am

Bhum Brahmavira on August 11, 2012 at 11:22 am

Tom on August 12, 2012 at 11:15 pm

Joe, i wanted you to know that The Pocalypse does not have its own page on BadWebComics.com. Isn’t that great! Keep up the good work!

Lil' T on August 13, 2012 at 5:41 am

DUDE!!! I literally JUST found out about The Pocalypse 1 1/2 weeks ago and I’m already waiting for the next scene!!! This is one of the best web comics I’ve seen. I tore through all the chapters. Great stuff!!!

Blaquesmyth on August 13, 2012 at 7:31 am
