~A post-apocalyptic, dark comedy webcomic that I've been working on since 2005 by myself at first and then with friends from all around the world.

This story is too chaotic for me. I tried to read it twice before but stoped early on. After reading other stories of this universe though, I had so much questions and wild theories I had to get some answers. So I tried harder, until the introduction of Pilot. Then, the story is just so wild and interesting I couldn't stop.
But I must say, I think it's way more interesting to read this story after at least one other (Technomagica is my favourite, and it allows for the most interesting theorising).
Anyway, you should read this most excellent masterpiece and its other constituents.
I came across this webcomic a long time ago, I'm a completely different person now, but one thing I can say for sure is that no matter what age this comic will always be relevant.
This is the most unique comic book I've ever seen. The artwork, the characters, the plot, everything takes me back to my crazy childhood, when I was always making stuff up.
The whole idea of a crazy and weird post-apocalypse reminds me of the Adventure Time series, weird as that may be. And Snippy is the last man, Finn the human of this Adventure Time, as you like. Who the other characters are - try to guess for yourself. It's just amazing!
So, as far as the drawings go? It's very realistic and beautiful, and the characters are models from real life, which is already very unusual. Overall I will say this, you are not ready for the style of this comic in a good way.
By the way, I was chatting on messenger with the author of this comic, a very interesting person.
I won't beat around the bush for long, if you appreciate digital art, you'll love this comic. Start exploring the world of Capitania!
Amazing creative story with beautiful radiant art keeps you wanting to read more and more. Humorous, entertaining, engaging, a true pleasure to read.
At times the story lapses into hilarious nonsensical asides, and at times follows an overarching insane and creative story that the Author takes places you can hardly imagine - Lovecraftian nightmares ironically put into visual medium.
If you're at all interested in the postapocalyptic setting and comical stories and visuals, you'll love Romantically Apocalyptic!
I find this highly entertaining and a very fresh approach on the appocalyptic world.
The marvellous graphics are a wonderful addition, I Never saw this combination of story telling and pictures before and a Love it.
So far, I got to meet Snippy, the Captain and -at least the head of- the pilot. I am really entertained very well.
Been following this comic for years, and it's just gotten better, the art is beutiful photo-realistic pieces, the story is well writen and beyond unique, the style is seriously one of a kind, and the characters are magnificent, they feel so real, literally my favorite comic ever, especially after the remake
Romantically Apocalyptic is a tasteful mix of satire, comedy, sci-fi and pure madness.
Vitaly is very talented artist, who created his own little universe, drew handreads of outstandingly beautiful depictions of post apocalyptic world. All the while, being true to the spirit of his creation all this years.
New version of the story makes some things more clear, adds new illustrations, new characters and new layers of complexity .
As a bonus new version is set in the same Universe as Armorer and Technomagica (other Vitaly fictions)

I have been following this story from its days long gone and im so haply about the new content.
The writing has inproved and the drawing has as well. Absolute banger of a read if youre a fan of post apocalyptic stories and humour. Characters have great dialogue and distinct personalities. Their adventures are always leaving you at the edge of your seat or roaring with laughter. 10/10 world building.
Now I've been a follower of Romantically Apocalyptic for years now and I can say that I think I preferred it slightly in the webcomic format it had originally, though it's been transitioning to something more novel for a while with the journal entries. If anything my preference is merely from attachment to the one I experienced first.
The new style is probably better in many ways, being able to give more detail to the beautiful imagery like the journals were doing, but in a less intrusive style.
As for the story itself... It's a beautiful blend of madness and humour with surprisingly touching and awesome moments sprinkled in and subtle worldbuilding for a world that is truly unique (In at least as far as I have ever experienced)
The characters are all witty and play well off each other and the world. This story also does something that is not in itself unique, but is extremely impressive. Many things that seem nonsensical are in fact given ample explanations, you simply have to look for them and they might not be clear when they come up initially.
This story is also super quotable although doing so may make you seem insane and may require a lot of explanation and even then sometimes it really doesn't make sense in context... Or at least doesn't seem to make sense initially.
Anyway I give this story all of the stars and recommend it to anyone especially if you're into witty, sardonic humor, beautiful imagery and science fiction.
I've been reading this comic on the original website for so long I literally do not remember a time that I did not read it. The story has been executed brilliantly and yet kept enough mistery to keep me hanging on. The characters are funny and excentric and the world seems like a place that could be a literal future. Can't wait to see where the characters and story end up going.
A beautiful series of whimsical dystopian sci-fi artwork. The story is not as serious as some of the art may suggest, which is not at all a bad thing, it's easy to jump in on any page and enjoy the story and artwork without knowing what's going on. It's been a source of inspiration for my own storytelling before, and now an inspiration for drawing more lately.
