I really like the blur effect. And the continuous promise of smash preparation!


If Plok's arms are detached from his body, then how does he get abs?


Through the Power of Anything is Possible When You Believe.



My guess would be the same place Plok's usual pecs come from, which I suspect is a natural side-effect of being drawn by torso-addict Ste Pickford.





>how does he get abs?



Ste Pickford

You've all watched the 'making of' video, right? Click the 'read more' link underneath the comic to see it being drawn.


What happened to the Plok that I know and love?! Seriously Plok, listen to them, you are overdoing it!

I see some references in the last panel. Just as someone said on here, the word 'Smash' could be a reference to the Super Smash Bros. game.

When I look at it, I think about the Marvel's Hulk (I think it was the 90's cartoon when the Hulk said "Hulk smash!")

And Plok's body could mean that Plok's body is ready, another reference to a saying in Nintendo.



EXACTLY. I'm totally with you WJC. What happened to the real Plok?


Are you saying Plok is a clone of himself?


Believe in the Plok that believes in you!

Still voting. Still hoping.

Plok 2016


@JPickford, oh my gosh, where is the real Plok?! I want Plok back!! Bring the real Plok that I know and love back!


Calling it now: this will last two strips, three max, before someone literally lets the air out of him.


Ste Pickford

Hah! Never thought of that. *hurriedly scribbles down this week's script*

So a few titles that John and Ste Pickford worked on will be re-released in Rare Replay. I can't wait for that collection.


Is Plok now backwards compatible for the Xbox One?

I don't give a crap if it's on the SNES. I just want to jam it into the CD port and play Plok (but first, I need to find a Plok cartridge).


Brad Silvia

Hopefully it will get approved to be re-released on GOG, but I'm a bit worried since it has already been more than two weeks since the recommendation and we haven't gotten an update. Please let there be good news.



Why did you make him like this? I don't like muscular Plok.
