Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS THE COMICS(魔法少女リリカルなのはStrikerS THE COMICS) is a two-volume supplementary manga series for the namesake anime series, serving as part of the main Nanoha continuity, primarily published from September 30, 2006 to December 27, 2007. A special chapter was later published on July 30, 2009.
The first three chapters ("A's to StrikerS") take place in April 0071, immediately after A's epilogue and two weeks before the Coastal Airport 8 fire shown in flashbacks in StrikerS. Additionally, Nanoha's injury in 0068 is referenced in Vita's flashbacks.
Chapter 7 takes place in March 0075, about a month before the first episode of StrikerS.
Chapters 8 through 13 take place between individual anime episodes (0075 – 0076).
Chapter 14 and After Days take place at some point after StrikerS.
Each chapter title is fully styled as "Episode-X 「Title」", except the special chapter 15, which was styled "After Days 「Title」". If the chapter title has a "Phase-X" suffix, it is styled "Episode-X 「Title」 Phase-X". Alternatively, if the chapter corresponds to a particular StrikerS episode, it is styled "Episode-X(StrikerS #N.N) 「Title」".
Immediately after A's epilogue, the Three Aces and the Wolkenritter are sent on a mission to retrieve Lost Logia from excavations on a remote world. Fending off an attack by Gadget Drones, they recover a Relic, but the second Lost Logia seemingly self-destructs before they can reach it.
The Aces head to the extraction point with the Relic but detect an ambush of Gadget Drones along the way. Signum and Vita intercept the Gadgets and destroy all of them, ensuring their safe return. Vita has a flashback of Nanoha's injury in 0068.
Back on the Arthra, the Aces and the Wolkenritter celebrate an accomplished mission, despite the suspicion that it may not have been an isolated incident. Two weeks later, a fire breaks out at the Coastal Airport 8.
