|Welcome to the Romantically Apocalyptic Wiki, dedicated to the online webcomic Romantically Apocalyptic, written by Vitaly S. Alexius. It is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, and follows the adventures of Captain, Snippy, Pilot, and Engie.|
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, sniper and engie, live in the wasteland ruins of tomorrow.
This is my story.
I am captain.
The comic is produced by Vitaly S. Alexius, who describes Romantically Apocalyptic as "a high-detailed graphic novel that combines delicious servings of: end of the world / life in a dark post-apocalyptic dystopia, and twisted humor". He produces the comic with the assistance of Meeshka Samarin and Chico, and using "Photoshop, live actors, dead actors, sexy assistants, greenscreen, a camera, and a Wacom tablet." Each comic page is digitally painted and contains selections from the 1 terabyte of stock pictures that Vitaly collected over more than 6 years in "real abandoned, forgotten places of our world". Pages are typically released weekly, on Saturday.
The comic is being translated in 40 languages, although many translations are severely lagging behind. A list of translations can be found here.
