About the comic

Chandra has never had a family; so, she doesn’t think she needs one. For company she once talked to dogs; now, she talks to a robot. Too bad it doesn’t really have thoughts or feelings!

When she’s adopted by her wealthy and famous aunt, Ajupris Lerazmine, a jewelry magnate, it seems like everything will change. She even makes her first real friend while accompanying her aunt to a small moon on a mineral-rights deal.

But both Chandra and her aunt are hiding something. And it seems their destiny is inextricably linked to the hostile, unknowable kreebans— an alien race whose radio transmissions have never been understood by humankind— and the mysterious mineral, chronotite, whose fantastic qualities resemble magic more than they do science.

This description will be more accurate once the comic gets to the spoilery bits 🙂


The Otherknown is a science-fiction webcomic about friendship & found family in space. It currently updates Saturdays and Wednesdays (time allowing).



About the author

Lora is a weird sort of person, who is young, but not THAT young, I guess. She was like, JUST in college.

Her super-power is bird vision. Unrelated to actual sharpness of vision, it is merely the ability to detect all birds in the area at any given time. (This power appears to be involuntary, and backfires in certain sensitive situations, such as while driving – see issue #392.)

She went to SCAD for Sequential Art, but then she went and got a quick Java degree and now her full-time job is doing IT stuff. (Drawing comics is more fun, though.)

Her weaknesses include spiders of a certain size, stairs, early mornings, and casual social situations.

She also writes and draws this webcomic!
