Crimson Dark is a Sci-Fi webcomic created by David C. Simon, updated with a new page every Monday. Though work began on the strip in May 2006, it wasn't published until the 1st of June of that year (the archives were backdated, so that new readers would have more than one page to look at). The comic is a serialised story set during a massive inter-stellar war in the 27th century, but focuses primarily on a handful of individuals caught up in the middle of the war rather than the broader details of the conflict.
