Comic description

What is it like to live a life of no rest?

Shanti believes that she knows, until she gets in a plane crash, only to be caught in midair by a great winged creature calling itself a Gryphside. The Gryphside, named Phoebus, claims that he cannot land on the ground...but will instead take her to the one place he can, a mysterious cube floating in midair that his kind call the Skybox.

What the Skybox is, how it came to be, and the fate of all those that rest on it are for Shanti to uncover...


Lynx is your typical comics, animation and games nerd who spends far too much time heaping extra art projects upon herself. Perhaps you've seen her first comic about werewolves, titled 'Lunargyros.' Well, this is her new one!

Lynx also works in the animation industry, drawing on cartoons, and spends the rest of her time doodling fanart for her favorite series.

How about more then one skybox or make all humans into siders? I just say because that is the only thing I can think of. Unless there is another way to make humans rest without losing the internet.

* If noside is touched by any sider, they no longer need to eat and have exceptional connection quality.
* If noside contacted with skybox, they can fly.
* When this happens, AFAIK, nosider can get distinct traits of sider they was in direct phisical contact last. This may or may not be due to being on specific side at least once
* Siders clearly have mythical counterparts. What came first is unknown as of now.
* Somehow, siders and skybox are not on any photos and unknown to wide masses.
* For some reason, siders do not want to be seen
* Sider lost their ability to fly if they touch surface.
* They think you will die if it happens.
* Skybox started to disappear faster recently.

* Siders can be seen only when they touch noside and/or if they want to bee seen.
* Unless sided nosider touched surface, they are also invisible.
* They were visible to nosiders in the past.
* They may or may not be a product of creative energy.
* Siders population stays approximately same due to space and time constraints.
* Spacesiders have read-only access to internet. Of all people from Shanti's phone, they contacted Rachel.

Major unknowns:
* What is skybox purpose?
* What is siders purpose, if any?
* What is Simurgh purpose?

My theory:
Skybox is a major sink for excessive creation energy. Siders are collectors of said energy, their wandering is a mean to collect. The more energy in the world, the more they need to travel around the world, so Skybox need to disappear more often. Alternatively, Skybox need to disappear when enough energy collected, unless it will be broken.
But what is Simurgh? What is their relation with mythical counterpart? They are generally good being in mythology, mediating between sky and earth. Is it about to prevent energy overflow by wiping part Earth's population? I think I forgot why Simurgh is a bad news.

If my theory is true:
* We should check if during Black Plague or WWII skybox stayed longer. And that there was major Skybox interval dwindling after mass adoption of printed books, radio, television and finally internet. Consequentially, if it is not, theory is a bust.
* Death on the ground is an ancient lie for siders so they don't abandon their duty.
* We need more siders, therefore we need a way to make more.
* Maybe contact spacesiders? In dialog between Rachel and Shanti, say them when to meet.
* Test on local siders, if physical contact with a spacesider gives ability to fly back.
* Preferably test if Shanti is unique and other people can't become imaginary like that. Or at least that easy.

Of course, it's just an unproven theory, not much facts known as of now.

When Argus (was that him?) the pegaside fell, you could see fingers and I was like "Wait he's a flying horse?" but he actually has a human-like form as well AAAAHAHA
