About this project
Finally, after three years of production, we are ready to bring the Always Raining Here Volume 2 paperback to you!
Always Raining Here is a webcomic about the relationship between two high school boys, Adrian and Carter. The comic began as simple story, and has unfolded over the years into a complex and emotional ride, accompanied by its beautifully vivid artwork.
Check out the comic for free online here.
Always Raining Here Volume 1 has been in print for a number of years, and now it's time to conclude the story with the printing of Volume 2! The goal of this Kickstarter is to fund the print run of Always Raining Here Volume 2 to complete the paperback editions of ARH. The book will contain pages 85-222 of the webcomic.
When you contribute to our campaign, you will be directly funding our print run of Always Raining Here Volume 2. Contribute at a higher tier for a selection of fun rewards, such as stickers, totebags and more!
Below is a summary of what we are offering to backers! More detailed pledge summaries are on the side. All rewards are in CAD but are priced for the equivalent USD.
Our main goal is to raise $25,000 CAD to fund the print run of ARH V2. If we happen to raise over that goal, we have a number of rewards ready for our backers!
✔️ $35,000 CAD:
We will send out Kickstarter Original ARH Print for all shipped packages! Everyone who orders a package gets a beautiful colour illustration, which we have yet to release to the public! [ REACHED ]
✔️ ★ ★ $45,000 CAD: ★ ★
We will be releasing a Digital Artbook to all backers! This artbook will contain an archive of some of Hazel’s best illustrations, along with character designs, sketches and commentary. A wonderful behind the scenes look at ARH! [ REACHED ]
✔️ ★ ★ $55,000 CAD: ★ ★
A 6-page Epilogue Story about Adrian and Carter will be released, covering a scene in their lives after the end of Volume 2. It will be included in the back of ARH V2 and available to everyone who pledges! [ REACHED ]
Big thanks to all family, friends and fans who have supported us along the way. Thank you for checking out our project, and for sticking with us all these years! Making comics is better with you.

Risks and challenges
We successfully ran a fundraiser in 2013 for the first print run of ARH Volume 1. We have printed a few books since then, so even though this kickstarter is at a larger scale we are confident in the printing process.
We expect things to be printed in a timely manner: We're looking at a fall 2016 ship date for everyone's rewards. However, all backers will be notified if things end up taking longer than expected.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Yeah, sure! You can add a copy of Volume 1 to any tier that is an equal or higher value to the Tiny Boyfriend Tier. We won't accept this for tiers lower than the Tiny Boyfriend Tier.
Just send us a Kickstarter message that you have paid for Volume 1, and include 26 CAD on top of your tier pledge.
*we may ask you to pay for extra shipping if the addition of Volume 1 pushes your package over the weight limit*
Yes! We will most definitely have both Volume 1 and 2 for sale online after the Kickstarter. It will probably be available late 2016 (Either November or December, after KS rewards are shipped out.) Kickstarter books are first priority so if you want it faster, consider ordering it though the KS.
We’ve gotten this question a lot since releasing the dakimakura images. At this point, we can’t guarantee the Adrian and Carter Dakimakura will be available after the Kickstarter. Certain things can be a pain to ship out, and since there’s only two of us who deal with the orders it can get overwhelming for us. For the Kickstarter we are using a fulfillment service which is why we are offering some cooler merchandise. The Kickstarter is your best bet if you want the dakimakura.
Same deal as the daki.
Tiny boyfriend PVC charms:
We will likely have these for sale after the Kickstarter, but again the best place to get them is the KS.
We haven’t decided yet!
