oh god I DO THAT TOO *giggle*
Kobolds are like children in some sense. That includes being adorable.
(I know they’re vicious sociopathic communists, but still.)
Oh, that can’t be good. Maybe it’s because they didn’t wipe their feet first? Or maybe the guardian’s getting a dressing-down?
Thanks for all the work and artistry, and have a great New Year yourself!
Kos is too precious. 🙂
Every Wednesday I come here, hoping… <:3
You are not the only one, daftnewt. Hope springs eternal.
</3 comment virginity lost from sadness 🙁
will we ever see more updates? I hope everything’s alright.
I’m OK, just flailing around a bit. Got a number of projects on the go, trying to find a balance. @_@
Just read the whole comic so far in a few sittings. Wanted to say how fantastic it was. Favorite chapter was the fairy-story type ‘The Bog Witch’, because its so different from other stuff i’ve read online, but I’ve enjoyed all the major characters so far. Looking forward to seeing more.
I like this webcomic. It really deserves to be more well known.
Awesome web comic. Can’t wait for update. I’m gonna take a nap now, ‘k?
Sigh. Another of those oh-so-long interruptions. The comic is worth it, though, so I’ll be back.
Just started reading today, gota say this is a very good comic.
Still lingers on in my bookmarks, this one…some day, my kobold will come.
I just read through this comic start to finish, and I really like it. The kobold is just adorable and I want to read more of this story!
One of my top 5 favorites. Hope someday the artist will manage to get over his slump and return.
I’ve just found this and binged on the archive with delight. I’ve started following Dark Places on G+ for updates; hopefully other projects will lighten up and Steve’ll come back to us….
Hooray! Steve isn’t dead! I’m gonna be waiting eagerly for the next page to come in then!
Are you sure he isn’t dead? I poked him with a stick, and nothing happened!
He’s waiting for you to let your guard down, is all….
I miss this comic so much 🙁
Give it some time. He’s probably busy.
busy since December……..
Well, yes. Busy with real life.
I love your alternative name for warforged. Iron legionnaires. I may use that name and their story in my campaigns. and can’t wait to waht happens with the lovecraftian cleric =D ^_^
Hope all is well with you. I hope that someday you have a chance to return as this is one of the better written webcomics out there.
Really *fantastic* comic, found it yesterday! I hope it will be continued eventually.
Sad to see this languish. Hope you find the energy to resume updates soon!
Hope you’re doing well, Steve, and happy holidays!
Surprised to see this website still up, it’s been so long since anyone has heard from the author. Shame really: It’s a brilliant mix of D&D, Lovecraft, & old Fables…sad to see it fall by the wayside.
Hullo hullo. I ain’t dead, so at least there’s that. I’d like to finish up this chapter at some point, I’m just not sure when exactly that’s likely to happen. 🙁
We’ll we’re glad you’re not dead and hope everything is ok.
This comic is amazing and I certainly would wait as long as it takes for you to be ready to finish it so don’t give up!
You still not dead?
Love Kos’ face in panel 3.
Just found this comic, would love to see more someday.
Is this comic still going?
It is rather brilliant and lovely. I hope to see more soon.
…my name is Ozymandias…
Something like Seventh Guest?
Wish this was still ongoing.
Hope you continue this someday. I keep checking back hoping for an update
/tg/ sent me here. This comic is awesome and needs to resume.
I’ve really enjoyed everything you’ve posted here. Someday people will shake off the elven glamor that is “Tolkein elves” (;
Thank you for sharing so much.
for those of you who still visit this comic the author Steve is not dead, to find out what happened to him click on his name under the name of the comic page, and for those of you who cant figure it out or just wont do it, i will give a link to the page and copy and past his message here.
As has probably been obvious for a goodly long time now, Dark Places has fallen into inactivity. This is for a variety of reasons – initially because I’d started a new job which used up a lot of the time and energy that had previously gone into making the comic, then later because I realised that I’d become lost and a little burned-out on it. Each page was taking a lot of hours to draw, and I was having a hard time summoning up the enthusiasm to continue. I do appreciate that right in the middle of a chapter is by no means a good place to make such a discovery, and for that I can only apologise. I’d like to return to Dark Places eventually, but I’m not sure when that’ll happen. I’m very grateful to all of you who’ve kept checking back in the hope of a new update and leaving messages of hope and anticipation; I’m also very sorry to keep disappointing you, and feel it’s best to (belatedly) clarify exactly how things lie at the moment.
In the meantime, if you’re still interested in following my work I’ve been working on Dungeon Grind, which has proven to be a much-needed change of, well, everything. Short-form, humour, relatively quick to make, it’s quite a different animal from Dark Places and has used different creative muscles. It does have kobolds in it, though, so I guess it’s not entirely dissimilar. That’s where I am at the moment, in any case.

oh and on another note if any of you know about Top Web Comics and want to vote Dark Places up i will give link
End of my Message.
Last comic update was about 2 years ago… Sigh. Wish it started again!
All I wanted is to note that there are still people finding this comic and getting to this part, and dying a little for not knowing what happened to the artist, or what is to be of his work, we all would love to know more about this comic
I´ll return later… hopefully before a year has passed
funnily enough, this story is kind of in theme with what haves happened to this comic XD
It’s interesting to note, that with Patreon supporting the webcomic industry, I would happily subscribe to (& thus pay for) the continuation of this comic. I’m certain others would as well; it really is brilliant.
This comic series is truly brilliant. One of the best I’ve ever seen anywhere.
I hope eventually you’ll come back to it! I think people would love to see what happens to Evan, Jaine, Aled, and Kos!
“Sometimes it comes and sometimes it stops coming. I don’t know why, but, you know, writing fiction, writing novels is just like searching for something in the dark places. So you need every help, every help you can get. Sometimes it’s cats, sometimes it’s wells, and, in the dark places, there are small things waiting to help you.” -Haruki Murakami
Found the comic today, stumbled upon the Kobold and the Dragon story. Loved it. And now I stumble upon this page, read comments, and am saddened by the fact that from 28 XII 2011, there was no update. It’s two and half of a year almost, there’s still not enough time for Dark places? I miss Kosjukris and Evan and everyone else. =[
love this series, hopefully you start it back up
2015, and the occasional traveler still ambles in…
2016 still waiting
Just finished reading through these. On the off chance the author sees this after 4-5 years, I thought the chapters were quite well done. Thanks for the hour or two of entertainment, going to go share this with my friends. 🙂
Still miss this comic to this day. ;3;
It’s really beautiful comics, so sad D;
