Diskordia is a surreal fantasy webcomic that explores themes such as the nature of reality, consciousness and self-determination. It does so with equal doses of hilarity, whimsy and mind numbing horror. The main story follows Jackal Black, a cynical and sarcastic young man as he is yanked from his dull life into the bizarre dreamtime; a transit hub between dimensions. He will travel through these strange and varied realms encountering curiously odd creatures and terrifying foes while discovering the true horrific and baffling nature of the world he thought he knew.
