Serious question: What’s the deal with the apocalypse?

It’s not a question you hear every day, but I really want to know? Why are we so obsessed with the end of the world? It’s a question I’ve asked before ay LitReactor, but I haven’t cracked it yet.

Here’s a couple of questions I want to hear opinions on:

What is the Granddaddy of apocalypse novels?

What’s the Big Mama of apocalypse films?

And the BIG QUESTION:

Why is humanity and the arts obsessed with telling the story of mass extinction?

And as a bonus, what’s your favorite book and movie about the end of the world,

Please respond on social media, because that’s what it’s for.

Thanks for helping out.
