Surprise! I posted the entire ending all at once so you can enjoy it all together.

To start reading from last Thursday’s update click here

Thank you so much for reading all these years, everyone! Chris and I were really glad to have you. I hope you’ve enjoyed the ending!!! <3

I’ve started a new comic called Wilde Life and you can start reading it here.



xoxo forever


If you want to pick up some originals, you still can right here.


  • I don’t remember when we had to stop writing. We always hear this but we’ve never had a hiatus. The closest thing is when we lowered the updates from 3 times a week to once a week, but we’ve literally never missed a scheduled update. Any way, thanks for the kind words. Glad you enjoyed the comic so much!

  • Originally when I told Pascalle we should have Zap die, she was NOT having it. She came around when I said he’d come back. Either way, we came to a pretty good ending on that. Death and redemption. Always makes a good ending, I feel.

  • Thats a long time! Thanks so much for sticking with us!

  • Thanks for reading!

  • Everything I can possibly think of, if I had time. I didn’t have school when I wrote that O^O. (I would probably just do a story where the changes in the Zap! affected each of the characters. I dunno, I am still trying to pas English Comp T^T)

  • She’ll have to be a feral cat now.

  • Thanks so much. I’m currently working at getting some of my new projects up and running, but you can always catch Pascalle’s new comic Wilde Life.

  • Thanks!

  • Thanks so much. Glad they made Mondays a bit more bearable.

    Hmm, it may be the old Keenspot one! I have moved, and all of my things are still a bit all over the place, but I have had this particular one for at least a few years.

  • I don’t think so since color printing is so expensive and with the comic ending, its hard to justify spending money on inventory that might not ever sell, but I’ll never say never.

  • ah, but before that is was!

  • *chomp*

  • He almost did. Thanks for reading!

  • Thank YOU for reading!

  • Thanks for posting that!

  • Thanks so much. When we first started we were the only full color sci-fi comic out there (that we could see) so it was quite interesting. Thanks for reading!

  • Thanks for sticking with us!

  • I get a bit cooky at conventions, what can I say? Thanks for reading the comic, and saying nice things to us! :)

  • I can’t remember, its been so long ago, but maybe around that time was when we were with Keenspot? We got a lot of readers from being in that group. I dunno, maybe it was something else. Thanks for enjoying the comic, and for spreading the word!

  • Thanks!

  • Thanks for sticking with us!

    You can thank Android’s auto correct features for the spelling errors. Went round and round with the damned thing and it STILL screwed up!

    I’d personally love to see a side story about those two. And
    knowing Gunner, I think the two of them would figure out how to get off planet. Problem is, they’d both be kind of hunted by just about everybody!
    Heck, I can easily think of a number of scenarios where each group would start on their own stories, having them indirectly overlap several times until they all come face to face again on a brand new self aware starship! Just because she was a self aware starship the obeyed her captain, doesn’t mean she couldn’t keep an off ship backup of herself and Robot! If I were her, I’d have done exactly that AND made arrangements to have her parts built in several places, and ‘black box’ assembled in a private slipway in an ‘abandoned’ warehouse. (FYI; Black box assembly is putting preassembled modules together with the simplest instructions possible, so those doing the final assembly don’t know precisely what they are building on the inside, while they know they are building a starship.)
    The reason that Excelsior did this, is that there are reports of other psionic people from Zap and Gunner’s home world.

    Use this if you want, I think it could be a rockin’ ride! And yes, I have a pretty good idea where you could go from there… Including Zap and Reona’s kids!

    It’s… over…

    Lost my computer and couldn’t get a new one for a few months, finally back but only to see that I missed the end. Can always go back to see it in full, but it won’t really feel the same as watching it end the day it end.

    Yeah, I’m weird….

  • Don’t worry! When I posted the ending, the amount of people reading the comic hard crashed the website. It was up and down sporadically for like a week because of the traffic load, so you got to enjoy the ending without any of that frustration!

  • Grimlock13

    That’s a plus

  • E

    I’ve started reading this comics more than four years ago (damn time flies) and only now I finished it. This is a great comics, very emotional. I’m glad that he returned. I would have liked to see some sequel, only to see how Reona and Zap are doing and Naveed and her cat toy.
    Thanks for the emotional ride. Everyone who done this comics are talented people.

  • E

    I can’t believe it. I olny now realized that the sentence “but for some, the future is now” was in the very beginning of the comics. This is how you started and this is how you finished heh.

  • Flamus

    Sorry for being late to the party, but I Can’t thank you both enough for all the good times and for sticking it out when so many other web comics don’t make it the distance. It was a great story with great art, just what a comic should be. So again thanks guys!

  • Always makes me happy to see that someone else has read it! Thanks!

  • Andrea Moore

    Dear Pascalle and Chris,
    I didn’t know about this comic when you started, or even when it ended awhile back, I found it through a game ad. But I must say, that this had been by far the best comic I have ever read, with the great changes and amazing artwork. The story was really well created, and the characters made my breath leave my body, but then come back in one swoop when there was a great piece of humor! I love both of you, and cant wait to see where you go next! Keep writing/drawing, and I love y’all so much!!

  • Thanks Andrea! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

  • Ramdomwolf

    Out of all to comics ive read, this one has to be the deepest a comic has ever lodged its self into my heart. My words cant cover how wonderful this comic has been for me. I have wept and I have jumped up out of my seat in joy. In Zaps finally moments, I was still left with a warm feelings and a sense that every thing was going to be alright for them.

    I give a cheer, hoot and all of my being to the wonderful people who did this comic.

    Cheers for zap!


  • Simon

    Wow, great comic!

  • Somsphet

    Thanks for all the fish man.

    For a couple years now I’ve been trying to Finnish Zap, but sadly I would get distracted. I took a couple days to read what you wrote, and am happy I did so.
    It had a compelling beginning, an interesting climax, and a sappy,lovable heart warming ending. Thank you.

  • WolfLann

    Better late than never. Finally finished reading the whole thing.
    Took me a bit as I was also reading some of the comments on the way.
    I discovered the comic many years ago when it was a keenspot URL as I was reading some of the other comics on there.
    Was coming back regularly every week until somewhere around the time Excelsior returned to the rebel HQ and Reona “Angelface” found Efrem’s last message and XR’s memory chip.
    Don’t remember why I stopped but it was most likely I lost the bookmark or something along the line.
    I got thinking recently about some of the older comics I liked and Zap! poped in my head. Of course I searched for zapinspace for a giggle even though I knew the real name is Zap!. It still got me back here and I have been rereading from the beginning to get caught up.

    I really enjoyed the ride. The story is one of my favourite and the art is amazing. Even the older art is amazing.

    Will most likely take a look at Wildlife in a bit :)
    And will reread Zap! again for sure.

  • Carmen Kates

    thanks for making me cry ;~;
    that was absolutely amazing, guys. start to finish. so amazing. <3

  • Graywolf7902000

    I have just finished what I have to say was the best web-comic I have ever read and I have read many of them. Thank you Pascalle and Chris for this wonderful story. I will now start Wilde Life. Chris what is your new project?

  • Sam

    I discovered this comic yesterday, and read for 10+ hours straight until I’d finished it all, plus many of the comments. I actually pulled an all-nighter because I was so engaged in this story. Thank you so much for the incredible dedication you’ve put into this for eleven years, and the beautiful story you’ve shared. I will keep this one bookmarked to enjoy again and again.

  • John

    Holy crap. I just binge read through the entire webcomic from start to end instead of doing my homework. Such a good story. Well drawn and written.

  • Namanie

    Well, that was a pretty great story. An enjoyable read all the way through. I’m a little glad it was already finished when I arrived, because of the many moments where I couldn’t hit that next arrow fast enough. Good work, the both of you. For your dedication and the like.

    I did have a question though, and I do not know if it had been answered before.

    How powerful were the Lost Trio in the schema of psychickers? Owing to their heritage, I imagine they were more powerful than a good portion of the random psychics, but could other members of their planet have wiped the floor with them with completely casually?

  • Val G

    There’s a lot of comments here, I figured I’d cast my own into the heap.

    This comic was profound, original, genuine, funny, gripping, sad, joyous, and so many more things. It was a labor of love over many years and almost certainly took more work than most of us will ever know. And if I had been born a bit earlier, I’d like to think I’d have read it as it came out. So thank you, Chris and Pascalle, for bringing something so special to life- the world is a bit better a place for it.

  • Staring at walls = Fun

    Christ. I read this all in a span of 3 days, and WHAT A RIDE. I loved it. Absolutely. Now to go wait pensively for the next Wilde Life.

  • Bobby Castiel Czerwonka

    Long time reader, never commented before. I just wanted to let you know that this comic was something I did look forward to. I lost my laptop for a year so fell far behind on all the comics I read. But just saying the comic was good, comedy, drama, tear jerking sadness. You did a bang up job!

  • xAC3777x

    Started out as a reader of wilde life. Came here to read your older work. Loved watching you grow as an artist. Great story too.

  • efh313

    So many things to say…
    I read a lot of webcomics but ZAP! quickly became a frontrunner.
    I was there in the almost beginning and got to watch your growth as an artist and storyteller. Simply amazing.
    Since I started reading, I got married, had twins, and had to forgo my webcomics for a while.
    I just came back last week. (Feb. 2016)
    This has been one hell of a rollercoaster.
    I appreciate your commitment to the story and fans, your repartee in comments always made me feel like I was a part of this journey with you, even though I rarely took an active part.
    Lastly, what a powerful ending. Thank you for having the strength to kill the hero, don’t know if I could have done it, AND thank you for having the heart to bring him back. :D
    I am so glad I didn’t have to wait to get him back…
    ZAP! will be missed, but never forgotten.
    Thank you, Chris
    Thank you, Pascalle

    Thank you, Zap

  • Mr. Random

    Well, I just binged through the whole thing. Hello! To all the Wilde Lifers. I just sorta wandered over and I have to say.
    Alright, so it started off a little rocky for my taste, but the longer things went the better it got.
    By Volume 3 I was kinda enjoying things.
    By Volume 5 I recognized why people loved this.
    And in Volume 7, I felt satisfied.

    The art itself went through leaps and bounds I wish I could get an accurate gauge on the update schedule for pre-462, so I could get a decent yearly comparison. But needless to say, by the time Volume 5 came around, I was having those same “Wow.” moments I get from the art Pascalle creates over in Wilde Life. Heck, there were moments of it in Volumes 3 and 4.

    The entire thing was interesting. As I said, it started out feeling rocky to me. Things felt, not forced, but contrived. Yet as things continued, the characters grew into themselves. They became more human, more grounded, more… real.
    Despite the fantastical happenings.

    By the end, I liked it. A lot. It felt beautiful.

  • P. Stein

    Hi. I ran through this comic in one day. It’s been amazing. Thank you.
