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!

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

    Seeing y’all progress (mainly through the art) was absolutely amazing — this is one of the cutest and real stories I’ve read in a while, as well as relatable. I immediately fell in love with Carter, and sympathized with Adrien… thank you so much for putting in the time and effort to create such an amazing comic.

    It´s sooo sad it´s over…. I found out about this Comic today and was reading it in one go,..it was sooo cute , Adrian was just adorable and Carter in his own way really charming.

    This Comic was so good, you could compare yourself with the characters because they were so real. The Problems which they had could happen to any of us or already happened. Thank you for this awesome Story, I really fell in love with it.

    I really wish you guys would make this a webcomic on Webtoon like that would be so awesome and post all your things there and side storys, and it would amazing especially for us younger people (like me the broke 15 year old highs school student that still can’t get a job or has a car that cant subscribe to your patreon….which I would I had the cash to HECK I WOULD EVEN BUY ALL THE MERCH YOU GUYS HAVE)

  • RICHARD MCDONALD

    I just found this, and read it – in one night.

    This comic has really changed my life. As a lonely, 23 y/o gay man, so many emotions were captured so beautifully and accurately here. It really was heartwarming, and touching.

    Kudos. Continue giving us your talent, and we will support you.

  • Imagine Demons

    Dude I would hella donate if I could help make this into an anime.

  • Jaque Martins

    YES YES YES this comic is the best 10/10

  • BlueIsTheNewBlack

    *sobbing*
    We’ve come so far gosh dabit this is just-
    I’m happy with how I just spent my night and a half.

    • Emma Ava

      i also ended up reading this in one night

  • Yori

    My friend told me to read it. He understands my feels. We fangirl and fanboy together about this now.

  • PNH

    I was recommended this by my boyfriend even though I don’t normally read this kind of stuff. Through my life I’ve had very few relationships in general and I scorned relationships in my entertainment I think because I lacked love in my life, and I always scoffed at people being in love. Now that I have someone I love and it’s been serious for over a year I gave this a shot because he told me I should try it.
    I read it all in one go and I cried multiple times. Some of the stuff here definitely translates to me and him especially the never stops apologizing thing Adrian did, that’s definitely me haha. By the end I was so incredibly happy for them and it made me just want to hold him like Adrian and Carter do at the end.
    This comic is a treasure and it warmed my heart and brought me and my boyfriend closer together. Anyone out there unlucky enough to not have love in your life, don’t panic. I had to go until I was 27 before I finally met someone that thus far has been better for me than all my other relationships before that put together.

  • AHHHHHHHHHHH

    I just found out about this today, and well you can probably tell that I binged. Stuff like this makes me so warm and fluffy on the inside. I’ll definitely reccomend this MASTERPIECE to my friends. Thanks for making this comic!
