Wiki Link! And, Chapter 6 Done! 04/11/2012

by Joe

I googled The Pocalypse out of curiosity today and I re-stumbled upon the old Wikia wiki! I was pleasantly surprised to find how updated it was and how much work has been put into it! :D

A huge, huge thank you goes out to EVERYONE who contributes to either wiki! Since the Wikia wiki is far ahead, I’m changing the “Wiki” links to the Wikia one! Another huge thank you goes out to Galrauch who has done a lot of work! Galrauch has made up some page templates, so go help him out! :D

Again, thank you to anyone who does anything for the wiki :D Thanks to you, I don’t have to keep updating a Crew page! Plus, I really love reading your summaries and descriptions!

If you need the other wiki for any reason, click here!

Enjoy Scene 31 – “Mission Start!”

That about does it for Chapter 6! Chapter 7 is going to shoot back to our favourite zompire duo! I wonder what they’re up to :D

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

My god Joe! You’ve been reading my comments haven’t you.
I almost punched the computer screen when that douchenozzle walked in interrupting Annika saying who her brother was. It’s Joe. I know it, you know it and everyone else watching knows it. Why do you taunt me so?
Once again, love your work. You are so damn fantastic at this

Highcalibur10 on April 11, 2012 at 12:49 am

@Highcalibur10 – Thanks! That one was for you ;D

Joe on April 11, 2012 at 12:55 am

NOOOOOOOOO! Still don’t know who her brother is. Damn.
But nice scene, just as always. :)
First Comment, yey!

Werle on April 11, 2012 at 12:55 am

okay now to the scene.Powerfist with cast=pwnage.

Edward on April 11, 2012 at 12:56 am

“My brother’s name is …”


Thanks for the continuing cliffhanger Joe!

MrBester on April 11, 2012 at 1:01 am

yeah, i’m pretty sure we all know its joe. i’m new to this story and plowed through it in 1 day. in my enthusiasm to find out what happens next i never bothered to leave a comment on your earlier episodes. The pocalypse is by far one of the best apocalyptic stories i’ve seen. you definately know how to capture the attention of the audience.
This and The Order of the Stick are pretty much the only comics i read now.

Lukas Lee on April 11, 2012 at 1:14 am

evryone knows that annikas bro is joe….or you just wan to LOOK like that and evrione:WHAT?!?

vampire super boy on April 11, 2012 at 1:31 am

Maybe its not Joe but Lieutenant Cross!

Campvire on April 11, 2012 at 2:01 am

Oh gosh oh gosh oh gosh I can’t wait for the next scene oh gosh! :’D

Muffins on April 11, 2012 at 2:07 am

I hope you won’t do like in Saint Seiya where everybody thought that Marin was Seiya’s sister thanks to the incredible coincidence that was their stories. And now the tanks questions are all answered, anyone else? Great scene btw =)

Kulta on April 11, 2012 at 2:22 am

Hey, when they’re about to leave, (In the scene with Greybane and Nick) Nick say’s lastly: “Jumping? What do mean?” I think you mean “What do YOU mean?” :P

RicksterEpicWin on April 11, 2012 at 2:45 am

Jumping? *sniff* I smell Parkour

zach on April 11, 2012 at 5:24 am

OHHH COME ON AUTHOR JOE!! Make her say JOEEE we know it ( I think so O_O) just make her say it X3

Biperfuture on April 11, 2012 at 5:44 am

I’m going to laugh if it turns out that Joe was leading us on the entire time re: Joe/Annika being related. Also, something I’ve never seen ventured: Why does Nathan look exactly like Joe?

Aethrys on April 11, 2012 at 6:06 am

Everyday, every hour I’m refreshing this page in hope that there is a new scene of your great story! I love it!

Andre on April 11, 2012 at 6:20 am

@RicksterEpicWin – Thanks for the catch! Fixed! :D

Joe on April 11, 2012 at 7:51 am



why… why… its joe we all know and HOPE it. Why you keep it secret like that xD
and give him back his powers will ya please? :D

Jareth on April 11, 2012 at 9:03 am

” I bet your brother is a really nice guy! ” he says. hehehehe. *smirks* *smiles* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAA!!!!!!!!11!!1!

Brenkie on April 11, 2012 at 9:56 am

It’s probably joe and… i can’t imagine joe complementing someone lol!

ThunderGirl on April 11, 2012 at 10:02 am

Joe(A)- that little cliche in the end was quite annoying, but seeing how frustrated the previous commentators are with it truly does make up for it :p

I really cannot think of anyone besides Joe being her brother, but then she must be remembering Joe(B) from before he was an asshole (is this actually a possibility? Was Joe(B) ever NOT an asshole?!)

This closure was very elegant, so far the most informative of all chapter closures you have made so far. I believe I am not the only one waiting fervently for the commentator of all short intermissions between chapters (what jokes will he pull out THIS time? Which characters will appear NOW? Will he be able to keep Joe, Samuel and Dark in the same room for more than 3 seconds? Will he revive the Machine-man that supposedly died when the machine that transmitted the signal was destroyed?). Even if Im the first to say this things, I believe everyone will be thinking about it pretty soon… :)

Also, looking forward to the next chapter, possibly from the point of view of two Zompyres invading the Old World. 0o0

Aethrys- your query was ventured previously, but light-heartedly. Most just thought that it was coincidence though…

Spencett on April 11, 2012 at 11:40 am

Good god, I spent two days (would have been one if I didn’t have to work!) catching up. Can’t get enough!!

BTW you’re on Tropes too:

cousc on April 11, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Yep, callin’ it now, her brother is Joe.

Locke on April 11, 2012 at 6:24 pm

at this point I’d be more disappointed if Anika’s brother is Joe, it’d be far too predictable now…

sh4d0wfl4re on April 11, 2012 at 6:57 pm

…It’d be funny if Sam was her ‘brother’
Can’t really think of any other cast members who fit the description….

sh4d0wfl4re on April 11, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Rusty made money? I wonder how…

Yinello on April 11, 2012 at 10:46 pm

it could be sarguent jake because i cant picture joe ever joining the military

kingjd on April 12, 2012 at 1:17 am

Looks like Rusty found a new friend that he actually enjoys being around! :D And I now realize that although I don’t have much medical knowledge (not that type of person), Nick ‘s personality is really close to my own! I would probably prefer something I can move around in and still stay somewhat armored, I have a fear of heights, I would probably end up relying on somebody else thinking they would help me get out, etc. The difference is, I likely wouldn’t break out just so I could go on a potentially deadly mission when I could stay perfectly safe in the hospital.

illeatyourself on April 12, 2012 at 2:16 am

when the machines get here, if theres an epic battle, some of those tanks should be used. considering all the tanks they have there would have been a major military base in the city so maybe they run into the base along the way and take some fuel and ammo just in case. also for a pocalypse game after TPD2 it would be awesome if you could make a game like rebuild 2 or Shattered Colony The Survivors trying to expand new hammerston while fighting off everything, and balancing supplys such as fuel ammo and food, if you were using tanks to say destroy the machine city(s).

mouseman on April 12, 2012 at 1:12 pm

It’s actually a really nice thing Author Joe’s doing with Annika’s brother. With the way he’s built it up, he could either confirm the suspicions and say it is in fact Joe, or he could go in a different direction and make it another character entirely. And both would work

Personally, I’ve an inkling that it’s Greybane.

SliceAndDice on April 12, 2012 at 5:05 pm

ITS JOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nathan on April 12, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Well i finished reading all The Pocalypse comics, started 3 days ago, 3 days well spent.
Amazing work, love the comics, but you almost killed me with this cliffhanger !

Weikatoxic on April 12, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Very interesting stuff. I may not comment a lot anymore but I certainly check this page every day to see if there’s a new comic! I am addicted :D

Caketroll on April 13, 2012 at 1:02 am

I think she would have recognized him if graybane was her brother. Maybe Bug is her brother though?

Bandor on April 13, 2012 at 3:04 am

At the end I was gonna say how I will imagine her bro is Joe until proved wrong. But I guess I’m not the only one thinking that. xD
Annika is slowly becoming my favorite character
And Rusty is being scary by aiming cross bows at children.

Booieann on April 13, 2012 at 8:17 am

It’s so going to be Joe, lol.

Tara on April 13, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Hey Joe do we get another one of those recap episodes?

Nathan on April 13, 2012 at 7:22 pm

“I hope my brother is out there it a colony just like this one…”
I’m sure he is, Annika. Just like this one. ;)

Ms.Woot100 on April 14, 2012 at 9:54 am

Anybody else imagining the song Anyway You Want It from Journey playing while Greybane and the good Doctor go out to save the day? :3

Acadian Bacon on April 14, 2012 at 9:59 am

Haha, Joe is probably Annika’s brother :p seems pretty obvious from their past so far… Like how Greybane is a ‘werewolf’.

Blank on April 16, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Annika.. for the love of our mental sanity..
