[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Middleschoolsucks_238.jpg]] [[caption-width-right:350: Pain is the curse of consciousness.]] In 2008, a SomethingAwful forums goon scanned and uploaded a 94-page graphic novel he drew back in sixth grade. Drawn in a composition book with only a pencil and [[LudicrousGibs many, many red crayons]], it was an astonishingly deep (and gruesome) {{space opera}} about a scientific experiment {{gone horribly wrong}}, and the [[FromBadToWorse conflicts that followed]]. ''Bio Apocalypse'' immediately gained a small cult following, complete with {{fan art}} and demands that it be professionally published or made into a movie. In 2011, [[http://www.imdb.com/video/wab/vi2598608153/ the first third of what appears to be a narrated animated version]] was uploaded to its Website/{{IMDB}} page. The original comic can be found [[http://www.hillridge.net/SA/Bio%20Apocalypse.pdf here]]. A physical copy of the book can be obtained [[http://indyplanet.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=7878 here]]. In 2012, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pu91WyjDJR0 the entire animated version]] was posted to YouTube. It is awesome. So is this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ylubaqflY4 fan trailer]]. A modern spin-off [[http://yinyangremix.waecenter.org/projects/project_red_death.html is currently in the works]]. ---- !!Tropes seen in ''Bio Apocalypse'' include: * AndIMustScream: Every human being and intelligent animal on Earth ends up being absorbed into the organism, unable to move or speak but still conscious and able to feel the extreme amounts of pain felt by the entire biomass. * AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: [[spoiler:The fetus monster (in this case, 50 ''miles'' tall).]] * BadassGrandpa: The last living man on Earth ''not'' absorbed by the organism stands on top of the Eiffel Tower, fending off the creature with his cane. * BeliefMakesYouStupid: Taken to the extreme with the religious members of the Moon. * BloodyBowelsOfHell: Made physical on Earth by the super-organism. * BrownNote: The "Floating Things" have to be censored, because just looking at them can make one die of fright. * ChildrenAreInnocent: Played straight, when [[spoiler: prior to the genocide of the religious fanatics, the children are abducted to safety]]. * ChildProdigy: The creator may have been this. * DescriptionPorn: Used to complement much of the gory details, which instils a grotesque sense of wonder. * DeusExMachina: [[spoiler:Literally. The entire issue is resolved when {{God}} sends [[GrimReaper the Angel of Death]] to kill the fetus monster and make the Earth habitable again.]] * DeusExNukina: [[spoiler:Inverted.]] * EldritchAbomination: The super-organism has a habit of spawning these. * FetusTerrible: [[SerialEscalation Where do we even begin?]] ** [[http://yinyangremix.waecenter.org/images/art/red_death/bio_apoc_fanart/fetattack.jpg This fan poster says it all]]. * TheGodsMustBeLazy: God (despite His existence being questioned several times) never does anything to aid the humans on the Moon or to eradicate the super-organism [[spoiler:until the final part of the story.]] * GreyGoo: The super-organism is an organic version. * {{Hypocrite}}: Both sides. The religious nuts denounce science, but use it to survive. The scientists either think God doesn't exist, or if He does, [[GodIsEvil He's a monster]]. However, they secretly pray to Him in their sleep, thanking Him for sparing them from the super-organism. * KnightTemplar: The people of New Jerusalem. * LittleProfessorDialog: Most of the narration easily falls into this category. * NightmareFuelColoringBook: ''Bio Apocalypse'' IS this trope. * NukeEm: This is the default strategy used against the super-organism [[spoiler: it never works]]. * OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions: The basic tenet of the Moon's scientific community. * SceneryGorn: And how!

Renamed trope.
In 2008, a SomethingAwful forums goon scanned and uploaded a 94 page graphic novel he drew back in 6th grade.

Bio Apocalypse immediately gained a small cult following, complete with fan art and demands that it be professionally published or made into a movie.
