Post-Apocalyptic Comic: ORCHID #1

This week I was able to preview the full first issue of the new comic from Dark Horse Orchid. I can safely use my new favorite phrase to describe this comic because it’s recommended for 18+ audiences– Orchid is an Amazeballs Apocalyizgasm. The preview on the Dark Horse site is mildly misleading. It starts of very slowly with a lot of backstory and foreshadowing. No characters for the first four pages even. We learn that this world is set... Read more

Apocalyptic Entertainment: Terra Nova

Fair warning: I find it hard to get on-board with shows where the first person to die is Unnamed Black Bad Guy. Quickly followed by the group to teenage idiots suffering the serious injuries of Frantic Black Girl Who Flees and Black Guy Who Serves as Useless Main Character’s Shield. Do you ever watch a new show and get the feeling you shouldn’t get too attached because it won’t last? Thinking in the back of your mind, maybe six other... Read more

Post-Apocalyptic Graphic Novels (Comics): Y The Last Man

*This whole post contains spoilers for most of Volume 1 of Y: The Last Man* In Y: The Last Man Yorick is the last man alive on Earth after a random, sudden thing kills all the men in all the world, and shit if I don’t wish he’d just kill himself so those poor women could just wither in peace. Never before have I been so against a protagonist’s survival. He’s so dumb in a... Read more

A Mini-Review of Contagion

  I watched Contagion this weekend with Husband. Duh, I loved it. It wasn’t a hype machine for crazy-pants pseudo -science or mutants or zombies. It was crazy-pants really, real. Unlike most of the post-apocalyptic stories we see in entertainment, there was an unsettling realism to Contagion. The fear that was so easily fueled and exploited just made sense. There are enough people in the world with enough mistrust to easily create chaos unrelated to the  direct source of danger.... Read more

The Apocalypse- ONLINE!

There are plenty of survivalism blogs out there- you can see a few of the best in our links folder- but in general they’re very serious. You may have guessed by now that while we’re serious about surviving the end days, we’re a little more focused on the post-apocalyptic living bit. We’re sort of a post-apocalyptic lifestyle blog at this stage, and we’re OK with that. And as a result of that focus, I’ve become... Read more

Post-Apocalyptic Reading: Pocket Guide To The Apocalypse by Jason Boyett

This is not a review. I just bought a book and am too excited to wait until after I’ve read it to spread the word. I generally get excited about bout books; but gosh, I love facts and short bursts of information. Those fact a day calendars were made for me 1. And this new book, is right up my alley. At times, I can have a handicapped attention span. The worst is when I know I... Read more

Post-Apocalyptic Graphic Novels

I’ve been getting into comics lately. Kind of. The graphic novel variety. Sometimes all my shows are on break and I’m not ready for a new book yet but I want to keep myself alarmed and entertained. In these times, I find graphic novels the perfect niche to fill the void. One of the best things about getting into graphic novels late? Digital comics are becoming increasingly popular and most publishers have an app or... Read more
