Welcome to Astral Avesˈ(astrÉ™l ävāz)

About Astral Aves:

Astral Aves is a fantasy long form comic that follows the adventures of Astra The Black, Lorn Avenarius, and others, as they navigate the mysterious world around them. It's politics, adventure, and the supernatural;  oh, and crazy hair. It's sort of a coming of age story in a fantasy setting, but you'll have to read it to find out.  It began in October of 2011 and updates Tuesday and Friday. Usually. 

Notes from the Author

This website is just getting started. I hope to get everything fleshed out over time, as I develop more pages and chapters. I'm new to all of this, but I'll happily answer any questions! You can contact me at astralaves@gmail.com.   This is my first comic, and first attempt any anything of this magnitude and scope. There will probably be a lot of bumps along the way.  I hope to get better as time progresses. Anyone taking the time to check out this comic, I cannot thank you enough. Anyway, thanks for reading!



Q: What kind of name is Astral Aves anyway?

A: It's kinda latiny I guess..also I could totally get the gmail/tumblr/twitter name for it. 

Q: What's with this Four Kingdoms business?

A: There are four worldly kingdoms. The Black Horn (Where Astra and the gang are from), The Vermeil Tetrarchy, The Whitemarche, and Sol Solaris. 

Q: Will you make a wiki?

A: I'm not sure yet. There's a lot of information that I'd like to share with the reader though. I may compile some bonus pages, or a little compendium. 

Q: What's the Diurne/Nocturne business, and why do people keep talking about it?

A: The Nocturne a 'shadow' world that co-exists with the real world. It's where magic and strange things come from. Conversely, creatures of the nocturne call the real world 'The Diurne', as it is equally strange and magical to them. It goes both ways. I'll explain more once the series gets deeper into it! 

Q: Why does everyone have such big hair?

A: Because it's awesome.
