XD Well, first off, this is once again part of the great originality that Romantically Apocalyptic holds in it's insane grasp.
First off, I really love the art here :3 Everything looks so amazingly realistic, it's almost scary. Especially with the skeleton in the bottom panel. The background looks amazing as always, too, especially in the second panel. The professional job done on the brightness and shading really makes it look like a real sky, like it's just a photograph.
And of course, there is then the humour ^^ All the lines, all the thoughts of this seem so incredibly and horrifyingly simple, and at the same time, that's what makes it so amazing! Capping it off with the "Think outside zee box" with the captain's friend saying "no" and looking haughty brings out the humour in this otherwise really thoughtful and serious piece. It's about the radiation and how almost all human life has been killed, and at the same time, you have some little joke going between the main lines of this.
All in all, I've been loving the series, and I can't wait to see more! :heart:

I think the skeleton in the last frame is wearing zee pilot's jacket, granted if it were a post-apocalypse I'd probably use skeletons as coat hangers too xD

I think this is Zee Captain's way of saying that (s)he is not interested in Snippy.

He must search for re-population candidates elsewhere!

i've been wondering for quite a while now, do you make these pictures by first taking a picture of cosplayers and fix them up using photoshop or do you draw the Captain and Sniper from scratch?

They could start guerilla guardening.
There´s no way that the neighbors wont come to look at it. Its kind of a natural law. And if there are no neighbours its due to this law that they will start to existi right in the moment of looking.
Maybe...

Take a bunch of scrap metal and put it together to look like a person, then during the halfmoon of the tenth month do an off beat dance that resembles zee Macarena. The result will send moon life to zee humanoids!

I can't remember whether I've already commented on this before - but if I have, it's worth squeeing over this again!

The person who gave the critique is right on all counts, especially with what he or she mentioned about the realism. Even now, it's hard to believe that you didn't make this out of photographs. The dark atmosphere is incredible, and I love the way it's juxtaposed with the humor.

I also love that pun at the end. Thinking outside the box while you're standing in a cardboard box inside the bigger box of the building itself...lol! Unfortunately I have no solutions for the problem, but I can appreciate great artwork when I see it - does that make up for anything? :XD:

Laughed my pants off... This cartoon is soo bitter, that it feels almost like being sweet. :) It's like the modern Monty Python but after a thermonuclear attack :)

It's unfortunate that the captain is a hypocrite. Either that or he is sorely confused about his proximity to "the box". :confused:
