This morning, the apocalypse!

As captured on book covers, anyway.

Some say the world will end in fire—

Some say in ice.

Nobody, however, said the world would end crushed by a giant monster until this Kirby cover.

I haven’t read We Who Survived. Alas, Babylon was part of ninth-grade (I think) English, the curriculum’s minor concession to SF (it’s a reasonably realistic look at post-WW III survival, and I quite enjoyed it). I can’t say I have any enthusiasm for those 1950s/early 1960s Marvel monster stories, but they do have cool covers.
