In case you haven’t noticed, today marks one year until what the Mayans predicted to be the end of the world, December 21, 2012. So what better way to celebrate the final year of existence than by taking a look at 5 webcomics focused on the END OF THE WORLD?
If you’re new to this, here’s the scoop: Each Wednesday we will showcase five indie web comics. Each will be categorized and will be judged by ART, STORY and APPEAL. This will give you an opportunity to support indie artists and the amazing work they do.
Comic: Romantically Apocalyptic
Story & Art: Vitaly S. Alexius
About: “I am the captain.
The year is 20__ something something.
I stopped counting a while ago, and therefore not sure what day it is.
Humanity is virtually wiped out in a nuclear holocaust.
Me and my last squad: pilot and sniper, live in the wasteland ruins of tomorrow.
This is my story.
I am captain.”
Comic: Wapsi Square
Story & Art: Paul Taylor
About: Monica has stopped questioning her own sanity and started questioning the world around her. Oh, she might still be crazy, but Tepoz, the Aztec God of Alcohol is real, and really did summon the fractured remains of a chimera in the form of three drunk college girls. Who knew the power to lay waste to civilization was so sexy?
Monica’s friends will keep her grounded, but can they be trusted with the secret to the end…and the beginning…of the world?
Wapsi Square‘s dark humor and macabre fantasy create a world almost exactly like the one you want to belive you live in.
