The Apocalyptic Post – The 1st Post

Posted by on Jul 03 2009, in apocalypticpost, The Apocalyptic Post

Welcome to my corner of ‘Post Apocalyptia’ – I’ve started this blog as a way to ferret out all the great works of post apocalyptic art, news and humour that is out there.

So why my interest in Post Apocalyptic stuff? I’ve always had a strong drawing to it – not necessarily about how the apocalypse comes, but how we deal with the aftermath. Post Apocalyptians get a clean state to start over – with the reminder how both how great society was and the struggle to not repeat past mistakes.
I will try to keep this blog on track to stay true to the Post Apocalyptic topics, not Apocalyptic or Dystopian topics. A quick recap on this:
  • Apocalyptic: Of, or relating to an apocalypse; Portending future disaster, devastation and doom; Revelatory or prophetic
  • Dystopian: Polar opposite of utopia. A society in which social and/or technological trends have contributed to a corrupted or degraded state.
  • Post Apocalyptic: Depiction of life after a global disaster such as a nuclear holocaust, alien invasion, or ecological collapse.
While there is plenty of crossover between each one – I will try to represent the Post Apocalyptic world here.
