This is the last page!

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!

The Future of Always Raining Here

Kickstarter is still going, right now as I write this post we have 40k (30k usd). We’re planning on releasing a short epilogue comic about Adrian and Carter getting frisky if we reach 55k, which is a huge goal for the next week but I hope that we’ll be able to reach it! The Kickstarter is over! Thank you so much everyone for support. Look forward to updates coming from us in the next few weeks.

If you would like to keep reading Adrian and Carter’s stories, we release a short about them every month on our Patreon. Now that the comic is over, I’ll be beginning an epilogue story about them camping together and enjoying the summer.

I’ve heard a lot of you don’t have the kind of money for Patreon, so we will be releasing a selection (not all of them) of short stories publicly in a few months. The first one for everyone stars Carter and Adrian in gym class. You can read it here!

I’ll be releasing more in the future too. If you want to stay in touch with us, I highly recommend following our social media accounts to get information on when we update!

Future Projects:

Light Novels:

The Decoy and the Retrofit – Fall 2016
This is a prose short written by Bell and illustrated by Hazel that will be released in the Fall on Patreon and in Sparkler Monthly online magazine. It’s a post apocalyptic scifi action comedy about two childhood friends who reunite while stealing a truck full of alien technology. It has guns. Boys in skirts. Stuff.
Prison Tower – 2016/2017
I’m still in publishing limbo with this thing. I’ll be screaming from the high hills when I finally publish it. You can read the beta of Volume 1 on Patreon under the $5 tier. I am planning to make Prison Tower a series, so once I get Volume 1 out there should be a sequel coming up.

Webcomics:

Unnamed Scifi Comic – Late 2016
This is the big one. Our next comic project is slated for kickoff at the end of this year. I’m here to answer your important questions, but here is what we’re looking at for this 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
