Looks like Plok has found a Cappy costume. Or maybe it’s just cappy with a Plok costume.

 

This is just great. From now on the stone guys will always remember me of rockyfella.

Shorts? Plok can't even wear shorts.

 

I like how you guys make references to other games without forcing it. Every reference fits in perfectly.

 

This was... unexpected. Honestly I thought there rather weren't new episodes to be expected until after New Year.

It's hard not to notice the change in art style as compared to volume 5. It seems somewhat of a hybrid between the more free and sketchy art of the earlier volumes and the very precise and polished style of volume 5 (but there's yet some fresh flair to it which wasn't present in either).

I suppose the last two covers are merely placeholders? Also, is the title of volume 5 final? To follow the established pattern, it ought to start with the letter 'E' - a personal idea of mine was "Extradited", as that's pretty much what happened to Plok (well, maybe not quite, as technically he was kidnapped by Xobians rather than handed over to System-Z by his home planet, but it seems to fit well nevertheless, as Xobians could insist it was a "valid" extradition from their point of view).

>So this is *your* new game?

...?!?

Oh… my god. I never made that connection.

 

Plok is a ghost then?

Must be why is is reanimated clothes.

 

^Is that a spoiler?

Oh, I see what you guys did there XD

Pretty sneaky, I must say =D

 

@Guest Nathan

According to an old comic book ad, plok was actually made by a vengeful wizard by magically animating his own clothes.

 

The comic ads aren't canon though.

 

Cheez

The comic ad wasn't even accurate to the plot of the game and the manual, nevermind any of the rest of that.

I actually like to thank you for this comic series. To see so much dedication for your own creations after so many years is really heartwarming and reminded me how I loved to draw a long time ago. I actually started small test drawing and think to go back to create a comic as well. For that, thank you so much to remind me what I loved once, guys =)

By the way, I just found this on Youtube. Not sure if you both saw it already but it looks really amazing and is such a wonderful throwback to Plok.

Cheers. We're definitely continuing the story. Just at the planning stage with volume 6 now.
