The end of the world is upon us!
The above image comes to us via Rob, who you might know around these parts. He writes in:
We were planning to run a massive front page feature about the 10 Best Places to Get a Vajazzle in Beijing – you know, solid expat-rag stuff, scooping the competition – but most of our editorial team skipped work on Friday, thinking it was Armageddon, so might as well ride that shit out in bed. I saw a gap in the market: once the apocalypse hits, you’re going to need a magazine, sure, but what kind? Well, here it is: the only, number one, post-apocalypse listings magazine in Beijing. Suck on that, Beijing Review. Read ‘em and weep.
Let’s look at other images from around China. This next one is from Liuzhou Laowai:
And this is from a BJC reader who’s an avid follower and fan of Laowai Comics (it depicts an apocalypse of self, which is really the only kind there is, right?):
And finally, a classic that isn’t really China-related, but was posted on China Digital Times – from Dan Piraro:
Happy Apocalypse Day, everyone!

That’s Beijing, quite literally back from the dead???
I hope that Lizhou Laowai person isn’t trying to take credit for that cartoon. It has been making it’s way around the web for days, he just added a 4th panel.
Oh Rob, you’re just jealous you can’t get a vajazzle. Love the apocalypse cover though.
Cyber hug for the first expat magazine to put “vajazzle” on its cover.
I’d be ok if Kitty Weekend were a recurring feature, too.
“I hope that Lizhou Laowai person isn’t trying to take credit for that cartoon. ”
No. I made no attempt to take credit for it. But I didn’t add a 4th panel. I edited a previous one of the many doing the rounds.
It is called ‘fun’.
