It's been a while, so let's talk Rain. Like, when is the comic coming back? And if my recovery is going so well, why's this hiatus taking so long?
Firstly, despite this being the longest hiatus ever, I want to thank all of you so much for being so patient with me. I know a lot of you are itching for your Rain fix, but not one of you has badgered me about it, and that means a lot to me. Just a wonderful reminder of one of the many reasons why you're the best fandom the internet has to offer. ^_^
Anyway, I am drawing on a pretty regular basis now, and I've got a setup going where I can sit for longer periods. So recovery isn't really an obstacle for this anymore.
However, I'm working on Rain - Volume 4 right now, and I want to at least submit it before I return to posting regular pages. I mean, I wanted to have it done BEFORE I had surgery, if anyone remembers me saying that. But those last few months were so hectic - with so much touch and go regarding whether the surgery would even happen or not until the very last moment - that I decided adding the extra stress of yet another deadline probably wasn't healthy. XD
But now, here I am with no other obligations going on. And I believe I should be able to have the bonus chapter finished this month. There's still a teeny bit of extra work beyond that, but my tentative goal is resume posting by October. Second week would be the best case scenario. I know that's still a ways away (and truthfully, I really am dying to jump back into it), but it feels like this book is never going to get done if I don't take care of it now.
So once again, thank you for bearing with me. I know you want Rain back. I do too! She and all her friends will return soon though. In the meantime, maybe now's a good time to give yourself a little refresher and read the last couple chapters again if you need to. ^_^
Take care, Rain Beaus! <3
*procedes to badger you for hours on end just cuase you said we didn't and gave us praise* nah i kid XD glad to know we'll be seeing it, and you again back on the site and glad your operation went well and you didn't like..die on the operating table...freaking shit happens in them hospital rooms you know, and i mean how your organs can give out @.@ ANYWAY passing the morbid, hope you have more fun on your hiatus :D play all the games o3o
For a split moment I thought her arm was missing before realizing that's the hoody :)
...come back to work one second before you're completely ready.
Rain volume 4, more Rain, and your recovery is going really well? This is awesome!!!!
Over the last week I discovered Rain and have now caught up. I've been through some hardships that have been lessened recently due to starting HRT four weeks ago, but both the web comic and the updates on your own transition have given me some much needed joy and hope. Thank you for so many updates. If I wasn't so broke and didn't live with such transphobic parents (they don't know) I would love to support you by buying the published volumes. Regardless, I look forward to future updates and wish you well on your recovery!
Also I love your new profile picture!
I was introduced to Rain by my trans mtf sister, I've read all of the current ones and I love it, my friend is also trans but ftm and I think I'm gender fluid, also I'm pan and have another friend whose ace, also I'm I actively support the lgbt community and try to explain it, anyways I love this and hope you can have good luck from here on out, I do wish I could support you with money and buying the physical coppies but being 14 that's kinda hard lol any ways love your work and good luck to life!
Glad to hear you're doing well and recovering ;u; Super excited to hear rain is coming back, but moreso that you're doing okay! While Rain, both the character and the comic, are important to me, your health is what's most important. Thank you for creating this comic, and having the courage to be yourself.
You could postpone another month and have it be...
I kid, I kid.
Please have maria and chanel in the next chapter
I'm looking forward to seeing regular Rain updates again, really glad to hear that you're doing OK.
Also, I echo FairportFan's sentiment! *nods*
All good things comes to those who wait.
I am very glad to hear good news. And hope get book 4. With my mother ending up going into care cause she keeps calling 911 going to the ER with nothing wrong. She got bad mental problems I can not help her with. I mite end up losing her and my place to live on top of my transgender problems. If anyone can help we need it. Here is My Go Fund Me. Please help. https://www.gofundme.com/68zqypmc
*Groooaaaaanss* October?! Awwww! Ahhhh, so impatient, haha. It was July 14th when you posted the currently last page of the story. Feels like years ago now, haha.
Still, glad things are going well for you!
Glad to hear so much good news. ^-^
As much as I would love for the comic to come sooner, I do not mind waiting. That way your at top performance, heheh, to deal with all your fans who have been patiently or impatiently waiting. xD
Of course even the filler pages and updates are nice. ^-^ Because your commentary/explanation below each picture are nice.
Jocelyn, I am super thrilled about you feeling ready to sit and draw again! You've been incredibly amazing keeping us up to date on your recovery. I've been so impressed by your strength through this whole thing. I have been following your updates though I haven't been commenting. But you're a hero.
So, yes, I'm excited about Rain being back next month. I'm also excited about the 4th book! It's about time for me to re-read books 1 through 3! Keep getting stronger!
Glad you're doing better <3
Now I've got another reason to be excited for October! Can't wait to see this comic start up again, it's felt like years since it last updated.
I havnt been keeping up with the comics lately (personal reasons) and im sooo sorry! Im so happy your doing better, and im so excited for more Rain!!!! Where can I buy the books though? I've looked everywhere and they aren't at the library or at any bookstores as far as ive seen. I really want to buy the series! Im sooo in love with this series <3
Sorry for not answering sooner, but the books thus far are all available here. ^_^
Hooray :D glad to know you're doing well :3
Still needs a spinoff for puddle >w<
Really glad to know your'e doing well
Where can i get the books apart from online?
The books are only available here.
At this time, it's not being sold anywhere else. I know some readers have mentioned purchasing extra copies to give to their local/school libraries. So while it might be a long shot, I suppose you could try that for an offline option. Otherwise though, I'm only selling it at the site linked above for now.
