Best Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction in 2022

Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction

If you love the idea of a future without civilization, you might be interested in reading or watching some Post-Apocalyptic Science-Fiction. In this article, we'll take a look at two films that focus on a city after the end of the world: Deathlok and On the Beach. Tom Hanks' 2011 web series Electric City is also a great choice.

American Cities in Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction

Visual, audio, and digital media are rife with visions of American cities in post-apocalyptic ruin. From popular fiction to literary works, visions of post-apocalyptic cities permeate the American imagination. What makes these fictional worlds so compelling? Here are a few reasons why. And more: Let's examine the ideas behind these fictional worlds and how they relate to our current world.

Urbanization and cities are central to many kinds of science fiction, and these post-apocalyptic fiction stories explore these concerns from multiple perspectives. They also present imaginative visions of possible urban landscapes in the near and far future. Despite the apocalyptic futures portrayed, post-apocalyptic fiction has the added benefit of incorporating these concerns into contemporary fiction.

Despite the popularity of post-apocalyptic stories, these fictional worlds are largely unexplored by scholars. The appeal of post-apocalyptic American cities is strong, and they present unique opportunities to explore contemporary urban issues. And with cutting-edge media, they present provocative new readings of familiar works. But what do these urban settings really entail?


Deathlok is a fictional cyborg published in Marvel comic books. He debuted in Astonishing Tales #25 in August 1974. Creators Rich Buckler and Doug Moench created the character, which has since been used by three other Marvel characters. The central theme of Deathlok is that the character has become reanimated with cybernetic technology. The technology is also used thematically in other Marvel stories.

While Deathlok was first introduced in the modern Marvel Universe in 1990s comics, it wasn't until recently that the character has been given his own standalone series. John Huston didn't read comics at the time, but he researched and adapted the character's storyline from the 1970s. He will then use the character's dystopian future to tell the story of the Marvel Universe.

Post-apocalyptic science fiction novels like Deathlok have a number of interesting characters. A major character in the book, Yorick Brown, is a man who must survive a man-made pandemic. His survival is crucial to the survival of the human race and his civilization. While he must deal with various creatures that are trying to kill him, he is also the only one left to carry out his mission.

On the Beach

Nevil Shute's classic work of post-apocalyptic science-fiction, On the Beach, reinterprets the aftermath of nuclear war. Its unfeeling tone makes it an ideal choice for fans of post-apocalyptic fiction. While the premise might sound terrifying, On the Beach reveals a society that's fundamentally good, despite being doomed to die.

In On the Beach, post-apocalysis takes place in Switzerland, where people remain unaffected by the apocalypse. When the world collapses, Jon is staying at a hotel in Switzerland. A dead body is found on the premises, and he has to solve the case before the authorities arrive. The story will leave you breathless and anxious for more.

Raccoona Sheldon's post-apocalyptic science-fiction novel The Canticle For Leibowitz is set 600 years after 'the Flame Deluge'. In this novel, the conflict between science and religion is explored, with many twists and turns. The author's writing style is compelling and riveting. The plot is very well-written, and the characters are likable and believable.

Tom Hanks' 2011 web series Electric City

Yahoo! is releasing a post-apocalyptic science fiction web series, starring Tom Hanks. The series will consist of 20 short episodes, each three to four minutes long. It was originally written by Hanks in 2003 and shopped around to several film and television studios in the U.S., but eventually decided to adapt the story to the internet. Tom Hanks voices the title character, Cleveland Carr, in this post-apocalyptic science fiction adventure.

The series' post-apocalyptic setting examines the effects of energy consumption, crime, and punishment. It uses a variety of modern technology to create an engaging, interactive experience. The web series also includes games and behind-the-scenes clips to engage viewers. Fans of the show can post comments on the web site, which allows them to become part of the story and interact with other viewers.

Since its release, the series has received critical acclaim. Its first episode was a hit and quickly received millions of views on YouTube. The series is now available on Rogers Media and other digital platforms. Tom Hanks' post-apocalyptic sci-fi web series Electric City is a great way to engage audiences.

Xenozoic Tales

Xenozoic Tales is an alternative comic book series by Mark Schultz, which was published by Kitchen Sink Press in 1987. The series began with a story called "Xenozoic!" in issue #8 of Death Rattle. Issue #9 followed, and the series ran for a total of fourteen issues, ending mid-story arc in issue #14 (which is now out of print).

The book follows the adventures of two humanoids, Jack and Hannah, who are trapped in a post-apocalyptic world populated by dinosaurs and reptiles. Their adventures take them to various locations across the Xenozoic world, where dinosaurs roam freely and humans are unable to survive. The stories continue to grow into multiple issues, and Schultz is revered for his ability to render dinosaurs in EC-style.

The Xenozoic Tales series includes novels about a dystopian England that has been devastated by a sudden disaster. In this book, the human population is split into elfin Eloi and vicious Morlocks. The disease makes these humans act without inhibition, killing and raping uninfected humans. Y: The Last Man is another novel in the series that is set several years after the Third World War.

Remnants by K. A. Applegate

The series of books in Remnants by K. A. Applegate has some very unique elements, including art history, group politics, and a large cast. The story begins with the giant asteroid "The Rock" striking Earth. Astronauts are sent into space to find a new planet, but are plucked out of orbit by a super-ship that has sentient powers. There they encounter aliens, and the questions of life after the asteroid hit the Earth are explored throughout the book.

The surviving human race has discovered some interesting things about the strange space ship that has taken them to the future. The onboard computer, "Mother," is not as benign as the human race believes. Remnants face internal schisms as they struggle to survive. While they try to find a way out of the situation, they also face a new enemy.

World War Z

While there are many great books and movies about post-apocalyptic society, one film is particularly compelling. World War Z, post-apocalyptic science fiction, is the most recent example. The dystopian world in the movie is so bleak that it leaves readers feeling uneasy. In contrast, The Walking Dead depicts the military with a degree of accuracy. The movie portrays a harsh reality, but it explores a relationship between a father and his son in the midst of a barren society.

The film is based on a novel by Max Brooks, and the movie's title is a play on the fictitious Survival Guide. The sequel takes a more serious tone, and was inspired by the zombie films of George A. Romero and Studs Terkel. Brooks also used World War Z to comment on government ineptitude, US isolationism, and survivalism. While critics praised the film, it remains to be seen.

The Last Man on Earth

Despite its title, The Last Man on Earth isn't a zombie movie. It's post-apocalyptic science fiction. The premise is that a comet passes by the Earth and causes the dinosaurs to die. People react differently to its passage, but the resulting haze is the cleanest ending of any post-apocalyptic science fiction film.

Although it was not a box office hit upon its initial release, the film quickly gained a cult following among fans of post-apocalyptic science-fiction films. Rotten Tomatoes rates it 72%. The film was an adaptation of the 1954 novel I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. It starred Vincent Price and Franca Bettoia. Though Matheson was dissatisfied with the script, it nevertheless became an important post-apocalyptic classic.

Adapted from a comic book series, Y: The Last Man focuses on a young man's life in the post-apocalyptic future. It explores gender issues, feminism, race, and class. A male protagonist, Yorick, struggles to survive the new world while navigating his relationship with his pet monkey, Ampersand, and other survivors. The Last Man on Earth premieres on FX and Hulu on September 13.
