apocalypse by shufen2 apocalypse by shufen2
AKA "depressing chronicles from the end of the world," but that didn't fit in the title field. It was originally hand written, but it was too illegible despite my best efforts.

I am really quite fond of this one.

Comments are lovely.

EDIT: Wow, thanks for the DD. And for the favorites and especially all the comments. I love hearing what people are thinking as they read.

EDIT AGAIN: Oh, hey! There's this guy, Don Hertzfeldt, who did pretty much the same thing but better. (Also, he did it first.) Go check it out in Flight: Volume 2.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-09-12
How would you react when faced with the end of the world? apocalypse by ~shufen2 presents us with amazing things we'd never dare do, the mundane tasks we put off, the lies we tell people we love to protect them from a truth we cannot prevent and more; love, fear, happiness, sadness. Even the style seems to reflect the need to get the moment down on paper as quickly as possible for fear there might not be time later. ( Suggested by Midori--hana and Featured by kangel )

THIS IS SO SAD. I cannot imagine how these people must be feeling knowing doom is imminent.

Hey there!I really like this comic you made, even though it's depressing hahaha. It's very poignant and poetic. This reminded me of an artist who did a similar comic, but with a different ending, not sure if you've seen it, [link] both are equally beautiful.

Dude... this is really deep. there was an extraordinary amount of emotion that you were able to portray with stick figures. This is truly a work of art both visually and emotionally.

Everytime I come back to read this, I seem to love it more and more...if that's even possible. :love:
This really is fantastic. Humorous but sad, and it really makes you think, too...
Excellent job. C:
