Annika! And at last we have confirmation.

Casimir on November 20, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Hahahaha! I knew it!
He didn’t just lose his memory! He regained the memory he lost at the beggining of the series!!
Now, we know for sure his sister is Annika! There’s no doubting it!

HarrowedMind on November 20, 2012 at 11:00 pm

HOW COME JOE WASN’T WORRIED ABOUT ANNIKA AT THE BEGINNING OF THE STORY? I was beginning to think that he was a really idiotic, little brother who cared for no one1 Ok, he still is, but he’s showing emotions that he usually wouldn’t show elsewhere! Maybe he lost the memory of the accident that brought him to that hospital????? I guess things are starting to look up for Joe’s background (now we’ll see if he was born or adopted too! If he’s adopted, he could be one of the superminds that were mentioned before, if he was born then he is simply being possessed by one of them AKA Victor)

NeoWarrior on November 20, 2012 at 11:16 pm

This is gonna be so interesting when they get back to the colony!
Hope it won’t take 3 chapters

Geoff on November 20, 2012 at 11:32 pm

the fuck what a twist a plot twist.

Nomad on November 20, 2012 at 11:52 pm

I think he lost more years of memory than when he met Bernie

Bliss on November 21, 2012 at 12:21 am

@Bliss: You mean, like he’s in his teens now? That would be very interesting!

DramaNoMore on November 21, 2012 at 1:26 am

neo warrior, go back in the series to when sam explains joe’s powers.
the ship goer’s mother, victor and joe where gravely sick volounteers, they took the mind eradication drug bernie’s father’s coworker made and where reawakened with sam’s alter egos.

robert on November 21, 2012 at 5:27 am

There are still a lot of pieces to fit in this huge puzzle. Joe is Annika’s brother, but he is also Victor’s vessel. But if he really is Victor, then he couldn’t be Annika’s brother since he was “dead” and just a child, unless they aren’t blood related, that would make more sense; also, Annika says she has other brother(s), and since the machines said that Joe is subject #x (don’t remember the number) so it has a chance (99%) that he is Victor since he appears to be the younger subject, but we are still missing the other subjects. We don’t know if they are all alive or dead, but one thing is sure, they could all be connected through Sam, and he should be able to track them down. Nevertheless, I’m LOVING The Pocalypse more than ever. I wonder what author Joe will come up with next time. Fantastic job man! :D

Kulta on November 21, 2012 at 6:29 am

Just realised the parallels between victor and the 9-tails demon fox

Philazkill on November 21, 2012 at 7:21 am

@Kulta My brain hurts, but I think I know what you mean. Allow me to explain in a tl;dr version for the others.

Joa and Annika are siblings. However, Joe is, for some reason, using Victor’s body. The real Joe body is dead.

Pseudonym_ on November 21, 2012 at 11:13 am

@Joe Almost forgot, my offer is still open if you don’t get enough donators in time.

Pseudonym_ on November 21, 2012 at 11:16 am

@Philazkill- Yea I’ve been noticing the subtle connections to the fox since Victor or “Other Joe” was introduced and they seem to be almost identical in how they give power to the one they inhabit, but they still don’t fit the story of how it happened so I’m satisfied with how this is turning out greatly.

gunsmen45 on November 21, 2012 at 12:22 pm

Plot twist for next time: He was talking about a different Annika.

Rawr on November 21, 2012 at 1:25 pm

“You will die out there.” *KLUNK* “Let me go!” I lol’d when I heard the klunk sound. Doc must have one heavy suit for it to just klunk when Joe tries to push it to the side. Which makes Doc even more of a bada** since he can even use the thing without getting super worn out after only a few moments.

illeatyourself on November 21, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Annika really is his sister eh? To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if it just happens to be a coincidence and Joe and the Annika we know aren’t related. XD

illeatyourself on November 21, 2012 at 1:59 pm

i need the new episode im dieing here

emily on November 21, 2012 at 2:36 pm


Joe can we download the soundtrack of the Pocalypse somewhere? :D

biperfuture on November 21, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Got it. I know how Joe is going to get his memory back. He gunna eat some more of Rosa’s tacos.

Pseudonym_ on November 21, 2012 at 3:22 pm

One of the best episodes,including last episode. Epic twist!!!!
When they were in the dreamworld, I thought for a few moments that Samuel was going to offer his body for Victor!!

Albert Morris on November 21, 2012 at 3:37 pm

I can see a plot twist coming later,like because victor is in Joes mind the memory of his sister could indeed be Victors sister,or Rosa’s sister or some shit.

Anyways original reason i wanted to post was to ask what platforms this game is going to be on?

Wayne Mangham on November 21, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Btw joe my bro works for Rockstar and hes working on GTA 5 atm,do you want me to see if he will cheekily put a add in for your comic or game somewhere on a bill board for you coz i can arrange it if i sweet talk him :P let me know?

Wayne Mangham on November 21, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Obviousely, Joe is part of the cause of the end of the world.

Spencett on November 21, 2012 at 4:19 pm

omg annika and joe bby

Irene on November 21, 2012 at 9:42 pm

Damn it, Joe! quit delaying! We already know it’s Annika!

JustLaxin on November 22, 2012 at 12:04 am

hmmm, hey guys, didn’t Joe wake up in a hospital in the first place?
Maybe there was an accident involved that made Joe get his powers and lose him memory at the same time.
And then when Victor took away his memory since he woke up in the hospital, he remembers more of his past.

ILuvScruffy on November 22, 2012 at 3:20 am

@ILuvScruffy Have you even read the story? That is the farthest from the truth. He always had his memories, he was just kindof a dick so he didn’t talk about them.

Pseudonym_ on November 22, 2012 at 11:42 am

@pseudonym_ actually, I believe he’s right. I don’t think he could remember them

JustLaxin on November 22, 2012 at 12:33 pm

@JustLaxin Hold that thought. Prepare to be proved wrong.

Pseudonym_ on November 22, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Nah again good scene. But really Joe was killed, lost body, lost powers and again lost memory. He has nice live in this world ^^.

SilverMaxy on November 22, 2012 at 12:45 pm

@JustLaxin Shit, well I couldn’t find the one where he mentioned his sister, but he mentions his family in this one. http://www.thepocalypse.com/comics/new-shirt-design-and-100-in-the-forums

Also, I noticed something. In this next one, Bernie and Jess mention that their dad went east. Andy and Cross are going east. I can’t wait! http://www.thepocalypse.com/comics/time-to-vote

Pseudonym_ on November 22, 2012 at 2:13 pm

And the truth will set you free! We all called it.

Frankie on November 22, 2012 at 2:58 pm

It seems to me that Joe was born into a family with Annika but got sick and volunteered his body. Then the Pocalypse happened and already having “died” once, Joe seems to have lost his previous memory. Now with his present memory lost, his past memory surfaced. If his “mind” can be fixed, he might remember everything, before and after the Pocalypse.

Deviaman on November 22, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Man this is a problem that shouldn’t have happened. the amnesia is really coming at the worst time, and Victor is a real bastard. Twisticidiccliffanger

Marduk on November 22, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Also, one other question. A while ago, there was a guest scene called “Telvino Dalvak” The name obviously inspired New Hammerston’s neighbor city. Did they ever make any more scenes?

Pseudonym_ on November 22, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Really really can’t wait for the next one!!!
Come on Joe!!
Im not impatient just a huge fan

Pauric on November 23, 2012 at 10:21 am

Man i can’t believe this just happened. Victor is really scary man. Why the heck does he need joe’s body anyways?

Marduk on November 23, 2012 at 11:05 am

I think this is real joe, and this is his true way of being. Sam will find it easier to teach him how to use his powers, and then he’ll be superjoe again!

Lucas on November 23, 2012 at 11:39 am

@Lucas, 1. I agree! That is the real Joe and his actual way of life!, 2. His super hero name is ‘Powerfist’.

Anna on November 23, 2012 at 1:13 pm

I still hate Joe though. I really don’t care what his circumstances are, but he’s got such a toxic personality i really can’t root for him that much.

Marduk on November 23, 2012 at 4:43 pm

@Joe Are you a fan of the walking dead series? And if so did you play or watch videos about the walking dead video game? I actually cried in the ending.

Dagzter on November 23, 2012 at 5:23 pm

@Marduk I think thats why he is a great hero, its like nothing we have seen before, he’s more egotistical than Tony Stark!!

Pauric on November 23, 2012 at 5:23 pm

@Pseudonym_ – I don’t think any more scenes were made :( But if any more are made in the future, I’ll be sure to post them! :D
@Dagzter – I love The Walking Dead! I haven’t read any of the comics or played the games though. I’ve heard great things about the games but, for now, I’ll stick to the show! :D

Joe on November 23, 2012 at 6:04 pm

@Joe That sucks. If I could afford whatever Adobe program(forgot which one) you use to make The Pocalypse, I would love to make some. I even have a few basic sprites set up for a couple of characters. Le sigh, maybe another time.

Oh, almost forgot. I had an idea for TPD2, but I don’t expect you to include them because I’m not a donator. I was thinking about hybrids, kindof like Andy. Such as a zombie/human for an enemy. A human who is only partly infected for some reason, and it makes them slightly faster and stronger. Or maybe a plant/human who hides in alleys and sells you stuff. Just things like that. Wow, this comment turned out longer than I expected.

Pseudonym_ on November 23, 2012 at 8:12 pm

@ Pauric yeah no kidding. The thing is though he was so annoying in the beginning i almost stopped reading the comic altogether. Thank goodness i was cured of my idiocy quick enough to go ahead.

@ Pseudonym yeah, that guest comic thing was great actually i wish the thing was pursued more to be honest. I have no idea how Joe gets this stuff done though but i imagine it’s not at all easy, but i wish i could do one.

Marduk on November 24, 2012 at 4:32 am

@Pseudonym_ & Marduk – I use Adobe Flash for animating scenes and, yes, it ain’t cheap D: I would love to see more guests scenes! One thing I’d like to create in the future is an online tool (for everyone) that simplifies the scene-creating process and uploads the finished scene to The Pocalypse. After all, The Pocalypse has affected the whole world and I’m sure you all have awesome stories to tell! :D

Joe on November 24, 2012 at 1:37 pm

I’ve read all of the comics of The Walking Dead and I can say. They’re very different from the series. I like the comics better but the series is still really cool.

The Khan on November 24, 2012 at 2:54 pm

@Joe that would be great if possible. I really wish some of these softwares wouldn’t stab a hole through your wallet…

Marduk on November 25, 2012 at 4:20 am

Joe, I’ve been following this webcomic almost religiously since the day after the release of TPD1 and I can say, ever since seeing Annika, I’ve noticed a similarity between her and Joe. I’ve pointed it out in many episodes and even had a nice little chat about your storytelling techniques, especially when it came to the whole ‘sister’ thing. You’ve dangled me over the edge countless times before pulling me back in. But now, finally, you have done it
I love you Joe, you beautiful man
I god damn love you

Highcalibur10 on November 25, 2012 at 7:15 am

Too much dude too much….time for the happy pills!

Wayne Mangham on November 25, 2012 at 9:52 am

@Joe Just thought I’d ask, but can you tell Jared Donovan Neveling that his picture is awesome. Though he spelled “Pocalypse” wrong

Pseudonym_ on November 25, 2012 at 3:59 pm

OH.MY.GOD. How does no one see it?!?!

Danny on November 26, 2012 at 6:30 am

@Danny See what?

Pseudonym_ on November 26, 2012 at 8:14 pm

I don’t know if it’s just me but when i type in the default apocalypse URL i’m stuck at another page and even when i click ‘latest’ it doesn’t move?
