Shedding that Strip
April 2, 2013 - Joe Pearce
A number of people who worked on the original Inherit the Earth game have informed me that they have no knowledge of a "Pony Tribe" — especially Ponies with yellow fur, pink manes and wings.
I'm sure I saw that in some concept sketch somewhere...
Anyway, a "corrected" version of the April 1st strip will appear on Thursday.
Update... Here is the strip posted on April 1st:
If I Only Had a Brain
March 28, 2013 - Joe Pearce
I am currently at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Which is a problem, because the unlettered strip for today is back in Southern California.
The next strip will be a little late. I hope to have it by Sunday evening after I return home.
Another Milestone and a Strip Update
March 14, 2013 - Joe Pearce
Wow! 350 strips. Who would of thought...
The previous strip had an over-sized goat in panel 2. This have been remedied.

Chief Among Us, plus Further Confusion
January 10, 2013 - Joe Pearce
This story arc finally has a title: "Chief Among Us". I will modifying the website over the next few days to reflect this.
Further Confusion is next weekend in San Jose, and we will have a dealer's table there where we will be selling copies of the comic books, the game and other items. The table will not actually be in the Dealer's Room itself, but outside in the "Furry Marketplace".
Yes New Strip Today
January 3, 2013 - Joe Pearce
And we're back.
No New Strip Today
December 27, 2012 - Joe Pearce
See you in 2013!
December 20, 2012 - Joe Pearce
Everyone here at Wyrmkeep Entertainment would like to wish all our readers and customers a Happy Holidays and a Great New Year!
Guest Strip Reminder
November 29, 2012 - Joe Pearce
Reminder: I'm still seeking a guest strip to post on December 27th. Strips should be based in some manner on Inherit the Earth. There is no limit on number of panels, so a one panel strip is fine. If I get more than one strip, all of them will get posted eventually.
You can submit a strip via my email address or post it to the Fan Art & Fiction Forum.
November 22, 2012 - Joe Pearce
The Wyrmkeep Entertainment Co. is having a Holiday Sale! Every item we sell is from 10 to 40 percent off!
If you haven't played Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb yet, now's the time to give it a try! Visit the download or purchase page now!
OK, that's probably too many exclamation points...
Would Someone Like to Draw a Guest Strip?
October 18, 2012 - Joe Pearce
Every holiday season our artist usually skips an update in late December. In anticipation of that, I am seeking a guest strip! You can submit a strip via my email address or post it to the Fan Art & Fiction Forum.
The strip should be based in some way on Inherit the Earth (the game or comic) — bonus points if the strip is actually holiday-based!
Next Confirmed Convention Appearance
October 4, 2012 - Joe Pearce
I was just notified that I did receive a seller's table for Further Confusion. The Wyrmkeep Entertainment table will not actually be in the Dealer's Room itself, but just outside.
Wherefore Art Thou Humanity?
September 13, 2012 - Joe Pearce
In Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb it was quite common for characters that Rif, Eeah and Okk met is expound on their theories of what happened to the humans. I don't believe there has been any such discussion in the strip yet, so here you go...
It's a Call Back
August 30, 2012 - Joe Pearce
Annabelle previously mentioned she hails from the Wild Lands back in strip #64.
Attending Worldcon in Chicago
August 23, 2012 - Joe Pearce
I will be in Chicago attending the World Science Fiction Convention (aka Worldcon) over the Labor Day weekend. I won't be selling anything there; but if you just want to say "Hi!", you can possibly find me at the Art Show where I will be a part-time staff member.
The strip update for August 30th should appear properly while I'm gone.
New Wallpaper Is Here
August 9, 2012 - Joe Pearce
The latest donation gift of a lovely wallpaper featuring Annabelle is now available. It comes in four sizes raging from small (1024 x 768 pixels) to very large (1920 x 1080 pixels). If you enjoy the strip, please help the authors in keeping this endeavor going by donating.
New Wallpaper Coming in August
July 19, 2012 - Joe Pearce
The first new wallpaper in awhile will be appearing in August. Here is a preview...
Update: Make that later in August.
July 12, 2012 - Joe Pearce
I'll be at Comic-Con today, but only as an regular attendee. Normally, I would suggest that if you see me at the con, stop and say, "Hi!" However, the chance of seeing anyone through the massive throngs at Comic-Con is rather low, shall we say.
July 5, 2012 - Joe Pearce
I hope everyone had a wonderful Independence Day! For our readers from outside the United States, I hope you had a fine Wednesday in early Summer. Or early Winter for those from the Southern Hemisphere. I think that covers it.
Inherit the Earth Comic Book #3 — Buy It Now!
June 7, 2012 - Joe Pearce
Inherit the Earth Comic #3 is back from the printer and should be available for purchase on Thursday, June 14. This third issue completes the story of Little Wolf Lost.
Update: You can order a copy right now! See the PayPal buttons on this page. You can order the earlier issues from our main store.
May 31, 2012 - Joe Pearce
Just a reminder: Wyrmkeep Entertainment will have a table at Califur (June 1-3, 2012) in Invine, CA.
The third issue of the Inherit the Earth comic book will indeed be on sale there! It will be available to purchase online next week.
Come by the table and say, "Hi!"
Vignettes plus Russtip Portrait
May 24, 2012 - Joe Pearce
We're back to regular strips. Yeah!
I have decided to collect the two strips retelling scenes from Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb under Vignettes in the Sketches section of the site. I expect there will be more of these in the coming months (hint, hint). To those who might say these vignettes are not "sketches," I will remain you there is more then one definition of the word "sketch."
I have also added Russtip to the Characters page.
I Can't Count
May 17, 2012 - Joe Pearce
Question: Why is there no strip update today?
Answer: I forgot to send the artist the breakdown for today's strip.
Explanation: None, really. I had sent her the breakdowns for the next two strips, so Falkurneeze dutifully sent me the art for what would have been next week's strip. That's when I realized I had goofed. D'oh!
So, I may post a filler strip later today or tomorrow, or maybe the artist can quickly whip-up this week's strip (crosses fingers).
Update: A filler strip it is. The Fortune Teller from Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb has an odd way of ending a consultation. Ha!
And Now for Something Completely Different
May 3, 2012 - Joe Pearce
Falkurneeze is deep into college finals this week, so I have posted a filler strip: A scene from Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb featuring the Bear that Sissy and Russtip have mentioned in the current story. Enjoy!
Update: The filler strip can still be viewed here.
Our Next Convention Appearance
April 5, 2012 - Joe Pearce
Wyrmkeep Entertainment will have a table at this year's Califur (June 1-3, 2012) in Invine, CA. The third issue of the Inherit the Earth comic book, completing the story of Little Wolf Lost, should be available for purchase at the convention -- cross your fingers. We will also have copies of the original game and other items for sale too!
March 15, 2012 - Joe Pearce
The prior comic pages now have a summary of the current story. I'm not sure what I'm going to do, if anything, with the incomplete summary of the original story Little Wolf Lost.
Update 1: I will be breaking-up the old, completed summary into three parts and putting links on the Archives page to the summaries.
Update 2: The Archives page now has links to the summaries for each part of Little Wolf Lost. The summary for the current story is still found on the prior strip pages.
March 8, 2012 - Joe Pearce
It's strip #300! Woo-hoo!!
January 12, 2012 - Joe Pearce
The "Shining Knight" has been added to the Characters page.
January 5, 2012 - Joe Pearce
The first panel of today's strip looks so nice that I have decided to post it here at a larger size.
A Guest Strip and Happy Holidays!
December 29, 2011 - Joe Pearce
First things first: A belated Happy Holidays from the folks here at Wyrmkeep Entertainment. We also hope that everyone has a great 2012!
Long-time readers of the Inherit the Earth comic will know that we normally take the week between Christmas and New Years off. And, in fact, the current artist is taking a one-week break. Do not fret, though! Allison Hershey has provided a guest strip for today.
The Fox Family has previous appeared in the strips From the Mouths of Babes, Homesick, and the two-part A Letter and A Follow-Up Card.
December 19, 2011 - Joe Pearce
I have uploaded a new version of strip 288. We created the first version of the strip by a different process, hoping it might look crisper. Nope.
An Encounter at LosCon
December 8, 2011 - Joe Pearce
Over the Thanksgiving Day weekend I attended LosCon, the annual Los Angeles area SF and fantasy convention. The subject of one of the panels at the con was voice acting. And one of the panelists was Richard Epcar, a voice actor on Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb.
Below is a picture of me and Mr. Epcar. Yes, he is quite tall.

New Character Portraits
October 13, 2011 - Joe Pearce
The first four character portraits and descriptions for the current story have been posted to the Characters page. Annabelle has the honor of appearing twice (for now).
Probably Not That Comfortible
September 1, 2011 - Joe Pearce
It's good to be king!
That's until the citizens find fault with your "Let them eat cake" speech. Not to mention that the cake is a lie.
Allison had her own take on the exhibit at this year's Worldcon in Reno, Nevada.
The Hiatus Is Over
July 7, 2011 - Joe Pearce
The new story has begun!
For the time being, new strips will be posted early on Thursdays. I have moved the teaser illustration to the Sketches section of the site.
The site will be evolving over the next few weeks. The first change has already been made to the Archives page.
