This page is an index of all the canon Cosmic Dash stories that are currently available in the story archive. These stories will be compiled in timeline order, starting with the latest story at the top of the list. The earliest story will be at the very bottom. These include comics, short stories, and novellas. Because of the nature of Meilo Thench’s articles, those are excluded from the timeline but are assumed to be concurrent with the most recent stories unless some internal date is established.
Volumes will be marked with bold text, spinoffs will include the series title. Please enjoy this glimpse at the universe through the story archive. We also provide canon notes and corrections at the bottom of the page.
About the Calendar
The current year of the comic is GSY 3010. A year features five quinaries, designated as Q1-5, akin to quarters of the year. Each quinary spans roughly three months of 25 days each. Therefore, a Galactic Standard Year is roughly 375 days.

The following bullet points are canon notes to clarify or correct any errors that exist in the series. As I mostly work alone, sometimes continuity errors do occur. Please e-mail me (hpkomic @ gmail.com) if you have any errors you have observed.
- Two Discord-exclusive comics occupy fuzzy canonicity. The first, Cosmic Dash – “Moment of Calm” is set in an unspecified future of the comics and contains slight spoilers. The second comic is a non-canon Nightlifers story, written by Deft Beck and illustrated by Jamil Gonzalez that features a now-depreciated take on the setting and characters.
- Previous depictions of the Blassnaught Empire’s soldiers in Vol. 1 Ep. 2 depicted them in red when they should have worn blue. That has since been corrected.
