- The comic can be found here
- The current story line, Dark Science, has gone into the fourth (and final?) arc.
- Somehow, there's no forum thread for DC yet. How?
- The comic has been going on for a while, so presumably a few people might've heard of it.
Now, onto the rambling part:
I am confused. About Dark Science in particular and the continuity of the comic in general. Before Dark Science we had a collection of one-shots, some recurring themes and then the big Hob arc. Hob picks up the themes and the general lore of the strips before it and spins it into a tale about human ascension, for lack of a better word. As far as I can tell, while Hob starts in the canon Codakverse, it represents one possible timeline for what could've happened to Kimiko and its end doesn't leave much room for further stories.
The thing is, that I have a large amount of doubts that there even is something that could be called canon in the Codakverse. The one-shots contradict each other one occasion and Hob spun things beyond a point where there can be coherent worldbuilding without, like, a hundred pages specifically dedicated to explaining what the world looks like after Hob.
So what does that leave us for Dark Science? From the beginning I couldn't really tell how it fit into the loose canon and that hasn't really improved. I do like the arc itself, no doubts about it, but I'm left with the impression that it reboots canon (far stronger than Hob did?) and will leave things once again in a state of unclear canonicity.
The solution here might be to simply accept that Dresden Codak will never a coherent canon and such a thing might even be detrimental to what its trying to tell us. Still, stories demand to be analysed.
Edit: Wrote Hub, but it's Hob. Fixed.
