Pages 99-100: Three Digits

Greetings! LYRAE is now officially counting its pages with 3 digits! And I must say, I’m very happy with how #100 turned out. After the delays over the New Year break we are back to 2-page updates! This tine, Kel and Carr have barely survived the alien creature’s opening shots as it rapidly overruns theirContinue reading “Pages 99-100: Three Digits”

Pages 98: First Page of 2023

Greetings! LYRAE is back for 2023! Now I had hoped to continue work on the comic over the break and jump right back in with normal service and perhaps a small backlog of pages in reserve, but unfortunately a passing seasonal flu had other ideas. The end result is that today’s update will unfortunately beContinue reading “Pages 98: First Page of 2023”

Pages 96-97: That Is Not Santa

Greetings! Today on LYRAE we join the team in the Archer labs waiting to fill the alien menace with laser holes. However, as they watch the door, something lurks up above, bearing deadly gifts of its own. As the Archer labs erupt into a colourful conflaguration, this is where we shall be leaving LYRAE forContinue reading “Pages 96-97: That Is Not Santa”

Pages 94-95: Boxed In

Greetings! Last time on LYRAE, Laika came face to face with a heavily armed alien and exploded. This leaves the team in a very precarious situation as their previously secure position in the lab begins to look more like a trap. The team braces for the coming attack, Mel is forced to accept that perhapsContinue reading “Pages 94-95: Boxed In”

Pages 92-93: Deadly Lasers

Greetings! Last time on LYRAE, Laika came face to face with an alien creature in the Archer’s liftshaft, which promptly opened fire with a barrage of deadly lasers beams. That intense close quarters battle resolves in today’s pages as the fighting spills into the main lab area, with devastating results for the rescue team. YouContinue reading “Pages 92-93: Deadly Lasers”

Pages 90-91: Fireworks!

Greetings! As I type this it is November 5th, which in the UK is the day we celebrate… that time a bloke tried to blow up parliament? Well, technically the celebration is for the day that plot was foiled, which is a good thing because it turns out that Guy Fawke’s little group was lessContinue reading “Pages 90-91: Fireworks!”

Pages 87-88: Going Down

Greetings! Another quiet week on the social channels while I settle into the new day job, though I am glad to report I have had no further incidents regarding illness or the like. This time on Lyrae, an effort has been made to try and be a bit more dynamic with scene composition. Some astuteContinue reading “Pages 87-88: Going Down”

Pages 86-87: Precious Cargo

Greetings! Been a quiet couple of weeks due to starting a new day job and a slight bout of ill health just beforehand, but LYRAE is back with the usual fortnightly pages! Carr Darrow continues to insist to Mel that the very bulky equipment strewn across what passes as his lab is actually vitally importantContinue reading “Pages 86-87: Precious Cargo”

Pages 84-85: Exit Strategy

Greetings! This time on LYRAE, Mel must secure the Archer building and hold out until Trench can arrange a rescue for her team. Not all the crew are too happy with plan, however. Laika continues to question Mel’s authority, while scientist Carr Darrow appears to have some confusion concerning the team’s goals. On a sideContinue reading “Pages 84-85: Exit Strategy”

Pages 82-83: Calling Home

Greetings! This time on LYRAE, Mel calls High Command to confirm Carr Darrow’s story. She doesn’t hear what she wants to hear and, to the surprise of no one, loses her temper. Unfortunately for her, the High Commander isn’t someone Mel can yell at to get her own way. At least she gets some adviceContinue reading “Pages 82-83: Calling Home”
