Webcomic description

Avani Patel was content researching a method to create a better magic battery. But when her rival's science experiment goes disastrously wrong, vicious shadow monsters are released that threaten not just her work-- but the existence of all magic. Avani must do her best to find out just what these monsters are, and how to stop them, before they destroy the world as she knows it.

Take your time!
2020 was heck, and honestly, 2021 hasn't been much better.
This comic is still amazing, and I am proud to own a physical copy of volume 1. You are an amazing artist, and your happiness has priority.
“Indefinite Hiatus”
Hey everyone,

It's been about a year, so I figured I owed you all an update on the status of LoA. Unfortunately, I have to confirm that the comic is on indefinite hiatus.

Honestly, I just burned out. The clusterf*ck that was 2020, plus the pandemic, didn't exactly help things, but I suspect I would have burned out soon even without it. I tend to work best in small bursts, and 5 years of constant work/updates on this project just exhausted my creative resources. I managed a few pieces in 2021 earlier in the year, but overall I just haven't had much desire to paint.

I do still want to finish this story, however, i also don't really want to spend the next 10 years doing nothing but LoA, so I'm not sure how I will approach it when I do get the motivation to keep working on this. The first step will probably be to sit down and actually write/script the rest of the story, so I at least know how much work I'm looking at. I've spent the last 2 years writing a lot of prose, so at least I'm getting some good practice in there.

I will keep you all posted if there are any changes. If you want to keep following my art, the best place is probably my deviantart ( I post infrequently, but any new art I do will be there; I've given up fighting the algorithm on sites like Twitter.
Author Note
It makes me think of the coach stations London (and no doubt other cities) used to have before the railways, although I've never seen pictures of them. I guess they became railway stations in time.

The music is lovely!
:o Prettier! :)

The story so far has been refreshing. It's both exciting and sweet. :)
