    Well, 2020 was... quite a year. And, while I'm sure it will get better at some point, so far 2021 has largely been following in 2020's footsteps.

    But it could always be worse, right? And in SF&F fiction, it often has been. So let's take a look at some of those nightmare scenarios. Your entry can be from any movie, TV show, comic or video game where they are either experiencing a cataclysm, or living in the aftermath of one. It can be any type of violent upheaval (social, physical, etc.), for example: a devastating alien invasion, a natural disaster, a zombie plague... but it should be something with far-reaching impact (national, global, or greater). Think along the lines of 2012, rather than something like The Towering Inferno.

    Your entries should be no more than 200 x 200 pixels, and 1 MB in size. Each entrant may enter up to two avatars. And of course, they should be SFW. Contest will be open for about a week.

    Have fun! And maybe, just maybe, seeing all these other terrible milieus will help us to feel a little bit better about our own situation.

    It's one of the biggest European genre comics, by various writers and the extraordinary artist Don Lawrence. I'll shortly give you some more info and example pages over in your comic thread, don't wanna derail this thread.

    I'm kind of surprised that we haven't gotten any kind of Komandi adaptation, post apocalyptic stuff is still pretty popular.

    Last call! I plan to put the poll up in about 24 hours.

    I suppose I should enter something...

    You don’t even need sci-fi scenes.
    The 2011 Tuscaloosa tornado had tentacle like horizontal vortices. The Ui landslide...
