Dark Science Act 3: Purgatorio

I got this one done faster, so here’s an update a day early! Act 3 is going to be a lot of fun, I hope you guys have enjoyed the ride so far.

Also, I went back and added a brand new page for Act 2 in the archives, if you want to check that out!


Dark Science #38 - Read More

Sorry the site’s been down for the last couple of days, there was a database problem and I had to migrate servers. It was a whole thing, but we’re good now!

I hope you all enjoy this one. I planned this page a couple years ago and never actually thought it would ever be so eerily topical. I guess some problems are pretty universal.


Dark Science #37 - The Parting

Looks like Asmodea and Kim are both in a pickle!


Dark Science #36 - The Department of Congruity

Kim is in slightly less of a pickle!


Dark Science #35 - The Interview

Looks like Melchior is in quite a pickle!

- If you’re in the Seattle area, I’ll be at Geek Girl Con next weekend (Oct 11 & 12) with my Tomorrow Girl books and other goodies! It’s a top-notch convention, I highly recommend it.

- The Dresden Codak Patreon is doing very well! I’m blown away by the support so far. I’ve been able to hire a part-time assistant to help with a lot of the logical duties, freeing me up for more drawing. The result has been faster comics, which I’d all but given up hope on!

We’re not done yet, though. I’ve figured out what it’ll cost to hire my assistant full-time and allow me to actually have a regular update schedule! If we hit that, I may explode. You can check the details on the page. Ultimately I want to then get it up to three times a month, then if humanly possible, weekly. But that may actually break the laws of physics, we’ll see.


Dark Science #34 - Wait

Hey guys! I’ve just started a Patreon to help support the comic and expand what I can do with it. If you don’t know, Patreon is a monthly donation system that has project benchmarks, sort of like a Kickstarter. I’m offering lots of rewards and that sort of thing, but the ultimate goal (via hiring a helper to handle my non-drawing work) is to have a regular Dresden Codak update schedule for the first time ever! If regular updates is something you’re into, check out what I’m offering over there, because I think this is finally something achievable!

Sorry for the radio silence for so long. I’d been kind of not dealing with anxiety and depression for the better part of a year, and it reached a breaking point last month. I’m doing well now, but all this has necessitated a limited use of the internet for a while. For the next few months I won’t be available much through social media, so if you need to contact me, please email me at dresdencodak@gmail.com. If you don’t follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, you won’t notice any difference, as I’ll still be updating the comic as always! I’ll also be posting sketches and little content updates on the Patreon blog.

Thanks so much for your patience and support. I couldn’t ask for a better readership, you guys really are the best there ever could be.


Dark Science #33 - Light and Dark

Things are not looking good.


Dark Science #32 - Under the Light of the Sun

Hey guys! For the first time, I’m looking to expand the Dresden Codak operation to such a degree that I can more regularly put comics out and update the site in general. This means hiring one or two people to help with all the backend (ie: non-comics making part) of Dresden Codak.

To that end, I’m going to be starting a Patreon soon! If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a funding platform that lets people pay an amount they choose for the content that artists create. Mine will be up in the next week or so, stay tuned!


Dark Science #31 - Escalation

Hey, Seattle! I’ll be at Emerald City Comicon March 28-30! I’ll be at the Topatoco booth, #1102. I’ve got all sorts of books and goodies, and I’ll be doing some dinosaur sketches for anybody who wants one.

I’ve had to overcome some serious behind-the-scenes hurdles, but that’s all behind us now. There’s some exciting news regarding the comic that I can’t wait to share in the near future, so stay tuned! 2014 is the year Dresden Codak takes over the world.


Technical Delays

Due to an unexpected technical issue with my drawing hardware (which I’ve had to replace), I have to push back the update of the next Dark Science page to next week. Every delay burns me like a hot knife, but sometimes these things happen, sorry about that. Things are going well otherwise, and (despite this setback) I’ve actually concocted some new ways of updating the comic faster! Oh well, maybe next time.
