Oooooohh! A third suit! Obliteration…. that sends shivers down my spine!
Is that what he’s gonna work on? Huh huh huh?
I can’t wait till Monday….. upload another! Another! Please :)

Barb on January 29, 2011 at 3:38 pm

I don’t think he is making Obliteration. That’s his dad’s suit. Bernie is inventing his new suit all on his own. That’s my impression anyway.

Yay joe got the taco

Eastar on January 29, 2011 at 6:11 pm

Yay! Harry’s back :D Also, this’ll proablly help me and Dan on our own sprite work http://forums.thepocalypse.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=133 Just a few small pics that I’ve uploaded~

may i suggest a plasma lance? (its basically a beam laser with a electrically charged explosive shell that melts a indent into the target and then explodes on the inside, think Wookie Bowcaster x10 (if you don’t know what Wookie Bowcasters fire, check the star wars wiki))

lukesf on January 29, 2011 at 7:53 pm

If i may, should you need any reference for a weapon, i recommend the space marine weaponry from the Warhammer 40k universe. Coincidentally one of their weapon is a power fist. http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Power_Fist

Naughtius Maximus on January 30, 2011 at 3:04 am

Awww… I expected a more buttler-like look when Harry spoke… Oh Well… I guess Joe’s gonna have another vote for Bernie’s new suit soon… It’s just me guessing though, not a fact! XD
Course’ with Bernie so mad, he’ll give it a way tough name… “Devastation” anyone?

Hm, should Harry’s profile in “Crew” be updated to the Mobile Suit?

Yoinkinator on January 30, 2011 at 4:59 am

@Squizzel dude nice sprites

mikelord356 on January 30, 2011 at 5:16 am

Not to point out the nitty gritty stuff… but the enlarged Harry (when he’s talking) has a blue stripe on his head but its position doesnt match the one on mini-pixel-harry’s head… just saying!

Timmy HarleQuin on January 30, 2011 at 5:23 am

@neo i agree with Devastation

lukesf on January 30, 2011 at 10:47 am

Haha, excuse me to point it out, but it is ambiguous: “You better be fuckin’ with me.” Hilarious!

Yan on January 30, 2011 at 12:24 pm

its a little off topic, but that “fortress” shirt design was inspired by minecraft right? i really like that game and joes “impenetrable fortress” and his block crafting reminded me of it.

somebody on January 30, 2011 at 12:57 pm

@lukesf – That sounds badass! Thanks for the idea :D
@Naughtius Maximus – Very true! I used to collect and paint Warhammer 40K models and I love the ideas and stories behind the Space Marines. I had Grey Knight army that I never got a chance to play with :D
@Yoinkinator – Yup, lots of work to do in the Crew/Wiki! Please bear with me :D
@Timmy HarleQuin – Good eye!
@somebody – You’re right! Joe mind-crafts cubes in the Dream World, just like in Minecraft!

Joe on January 30, 2011 at 10:15 pm


There’s a new grey knight codex coming soon too

I also love the whole nihilistic aspect of warhammer 40k

Ashendant on January 31, 2011 at 4:44 am

I do Warhammer as well~ Imperal guard and Dark Angels for 40K, and Scaven for Fantacy.

Oh, and thank you Mike~ ^^

Squizzel on January 31, 2011 at 6:16 am

@Ashendant & Squizzel – I really regret leaving my Grey Knights back in Canada :( But, they’re waiting for me comfortably in their carrying case. My paints are probably bone dry, but at least I won’t have to buy new models when I return :D

Joe on January 31, 2011 at 11:07 am

DUDE totally cant wait to see the new suit!!! I just knoe its gonna be beastly!!!
All the suits have sweet names so far, there better be an orgasmic name for the new one XD

Makenna Ray Parker on February 1, 2011 at 1:29 am

I believe there was a weapon called the power fist in Fallout 3 as well. If you need inspiration for cool weaponry, the Fallout series or Half-Life 2 would be a good place to look. And thanks for the tutorial :)

kim jo-el on February 1, 2011 at 2:07 am

Oh and by the way, this being my first comment, I’d like to say that I’ve been reading since the 4th or 5th scene and have come back every other day since then to read them, you’re making a really great comic!

kim jo-el on February 1, 2011 at 2:10 am

Everlasting taco IS the best kind of Taco.

Warhammer 40K, ah, I remember you well. I had a gigantic Chaos Marine Army. As my playing dwindled I eventually sold it. Although I got is off for a good price I wish I had kept at least enough to make another army. Now I have to start all over ;.;

SirBounceAlot on February 1, 2011 at 2:50 am

something tells me that Joe is gonna be mad when he finds out that Andy tricked him into freeing him. that or Jess (if she finds out) is gonna tear a new one into Joe for being an idiot…again

sykes on February 1, 2011 at 5:51 am

Awesome comic! I just came by it for the first time today, read it all, and am left craving the next installment! Awesome job Joe(s)
