When Hazel and I started ARH back in like 2011, we just wanted to make a webcomic. While we always hoped that it would gain a readership like this, we never expected how much it would change our lives, and the lives of so many of its readers.
Since then, we have experienced and grown and seen so much. We have met so many people, made so many friends, and grown as people. Always Raining Here was our first taste at making comics, which we now intend to do for our careers. We want to keep making comics because of this little comic that we started on a whim that snowballed into our first project.
Of course, we wouldn’t have come this far without you guys. Your reaction has made this whole ride more than worth it. Thank you everyone who commented every week, who cried and laughed and frantically made image macros of comic panels, who taped printed photos of characters faces onto body pillows and shopped 4l milk jugs into every frame. Your F5 buttons can rest now!

Always Raining Here: Epilogue and other things!

Volume 2 is available now in our Shop!

 

book2_1024x1024

 

 

It contains a 6-page extra that you can’t read online that takes place after the end, along with a bunch of cute mini comics!

Unnamed Scifi Comic – NOT SURE YET
This is the big one.
It’s going to be scifi.
It’s going to have robots.
There will be boys kissing.
That’s all I have for you right now. We’ll probably be posting the first teasers for that this fall.

Thank you to everyone who read Always Raining Here. We love that so many people enjoyed it with all their heart. Making comics is better with you.
We’ll see you again soon!
Love,
Hazel + Bell

    I remember reading this manga while it was still coming out, and i was so, so, so exited for the day the pages would come out. I was so sad when i saw the last update, I thought, I’m gonna miss this comic, it’s really great. I re-read it a couple of times since then and I just find it so beautiful! Also, I think it’s crazy how the art style changes from the first page to the last! Really good improvement!

  • the chung

    II shouldn’t have read this in one sitting at 3 am. I should stay away from anything romantic for a long time. I haven’t felt something from any piece of fiction in awhile, and I know why I’ve been sort of emotionally dead.

    It’s been 6 months since a “breakup” and I still can’t get over it. I was in a long distance relationship with someone. I was very pragmatic, logical, and that’s why I didn’t want to get into one. They never work out, I thought. For 8 months straight, even when I was in a foreign country with a completely different time zone I still made the time to talk with him. I loved him completely. I wasn’t overly clingy. He initiated it all. He made it a relationship, he broke down my walls of skepticism. He raised the idea of me coming out. I waited 8 months.

    I finally got out there, and he hugged me at the airport. Nothing went right that trip. Second day he tells me he wants to limit how much time we hang out because “he needs time alone, just how I am” despite telling me 2 weeks before he’ll never let me go. The greatest feeling, better than any drug was when he grabbed my hand. I’ve never felt butterflies like that, didn’t even think I was still capable of it. We didn’t do anything we planned. He didn’t want to eat. He vomited twice in a day because I guess he was so anxious from my presence, and not in a good way. My goal from this point on, not even halfway into my trip of 11 days was to get him to admit he doesn’t like me.

    My first time ever cuddling with someone, and he pushed me away almost immediately. (Something he talked about for 8 months straight, again, his idea) Told me he needs space, but I could see he was very uncomfortable. 6 days in he finally admits it. I had too much pride to go “as friends” after being shot down after 8 months of being led on. I cried in that shitty hotel room for 5 straight days barely eating. I had no car out there. I flew in.

    It’s been 6 months and I still can’t get over it. I’m not that deluded to say that there will never be anybody else, but I can’t see it. Nobody is like him. I have nowhere to meet people. I’m picky, and the people I like never like me back. Was I ugly? I know I didn’t perform as well as I should have, and I should have been better, but I was so nervous. If he really liked me he would have seen that, right? I don’t know. I can’t shake the feeling I could have done something. My entire life nobody has ever reciprocated feelings, and when I thought someone finally did, after all the dreaming and crying and pain, turns out it’s the same thing.

    Thanks for the beautiful comic. I hope I can find these feelings in real life again. If someone read this, jesus christ how much time do you have?

  • Col Stevenson

    I just read this entire thing (ngl i read it a week ago and have been re reading it), i started to cry when the free volume ended, because i thought it ended completely with this hecca cliff hanger. But, when i saw that there was a store, and saw that volume 2 was avalible i immediately begged for the second volume. this is the best story i have read in a long ass time and i just wanted to say, thank you Hazel and Bell for bringing this wonderful and emotional comic into the world. i have been inspired and finally got the guts to pursue my long awaited comic. (ps- totally buying the 30$ volume because it has a signed coverpage thing for my birthday.)

    • Emma Ava
