So I spent at least an hour or so of my day at work sneak reading this. I couldn't stop. From the first time we see Carter trolling Craigslist to his miss at Chapters and his first attempt to "woo" Adrian all the way to the pirate ship. I was in love, so in love with Carter and Adrian that I want more of them. Carter is such a stalker with a heart of gold and poor Adrian is strung out on his ex. Carter wants Adrian, Adrian thinks Carter is annoying but they can't avoid each other. Partly because ...more

Cómic que es actualizado semanalmente en la web sobre dos chicos que todavía están en el instituto. Ellos son muy monos, los diálogos están bien y el arte también, aunque ese giro hacia un tono más dramático hacia el final es un poco brusco y no estoy segura de si muy bien desarrollado.

Ongoing? webcomic about two gay teenagers in highschool that later become a couple. It's funny and has great dialogue, tho i didn't like the out of the blue and unnecesary angst almost at the end of this volume.

What i liked most about this webcomic is see the development of the artist, she improved a lot by the time and it's something i really like to see in any webcomic made by a beginner artist because i think the creation of comics/webcomics is a good excersice to practice character design,

for those looking for a light webcomic read which is adorably cute, has a fantastic plot, and real characters (with a tiny seasoning of angst on the side), then this is the thing for you! sounds too good to be true, right? right.

the art is really lovely and it's fantastic that you can see the huge development of Bell and Hazel's work throughout the story. like it just slaps you in the face and leaves you gaping like a fooooool, they've improved so much.

I forgot how much I love carter and adrie

Yet another really enjoyable MM webcomic.

YA in theme, this story follows newly out of the closet Carter, as he sets his sights on his shy classmate, Adrian, as his first gay conquest. Adrian is having none of this, which results in the epic fail of all of Carter's initial attempts to seduce Adrian - the good news is, most of these seduction techniques were highly entertaining to watch and the banter between them was high quality and often laugh-out-loud funny.

Eventually personal intentio

This is a great coming-of-age web comic about two gay highschool-aged guys navigating the waters of, well, being gay in high school. It's a work in progress, so it remains to be seen how it'll play out. It's a bit predictable thus far but I'm still really enjoying it; it's often quite sweet and funny. It's a fun way to waste some time.

I read this every week. @___@ It's good. Set in Vancouver. Me likely.

Adrian is heartsick, Carter is horny. This is a story about their misadventures as they fumble through unrequited romances.

The art is incredible, the story is fantastic, the characters (both looks and personality) are amazing... I just started Volume Two of this spectacular webcomic, and I simply can't wait to read more!

I've read volume 1 and 2 on their website in one sit.
The story and art of this comic are so adorable and cute that I found myself smiling for hours after finishing it... If you need to read something to distract or cheer yourself up, check this one!

If you're a yaoi fangirl, Always Raining Here rocks. (Yaoi = perty gay boys, often the stars of some obscure anime.) Even if you're not, this cheerful romantic comedy might clear away pesky personal rainclouds anyway.

Carter, the dark-haired boy, finally has his sexuality all straightened out, but faces a very real problem: As far as he can tell, like, no one gay attends his school--until he spots a cute redhead named Adrian perusing a little smut in the bookstore. TARGET: SPOTTED. In desperation

After Starfighter and Teahouse, I can't get used to these drawings. It's just not the style for me, but it's well done. Also, a rather mundane teen angst story that is nonetheless enlivened by great dialogue.
This was my first webcomic, and I decided to reread it today. It's absolutely amazing.

Actually, I read the webcomic, not this edition.
En realidad, leí el web cómic, no esta edición.
A really cute love story, I think it's a very good start point for what, I hope, will become a better plot. Adrian and Carter are the cliché meant-to-be couple, but their personalities make it something new, even when we've all seen those kind of behaviors in real life or in ther books.
Una historia de amor muy bonita, creo que es un muy buen punto de inicio para lo que, espero, se convierta en una tram

Love this webcomic, and always glad to have some of my favorite webcomics in book form. It's beautifully illustrated and printed, even in this first volume. I'll admit, this series is a bit of a guilty pleasure, and the cuteness has only started in Volume 1. It takes a while for Carter to be likable, and for the writing to get off its feet. I'm looking forward to the future volumes even more.

The authors made some changes from the webcomic when it came to the big party scene, and I was a bit tor

Note : cheated a bit, this started more than three years ago but it's not a big deal to me

Wonderful ! Loved this webcomic.
As i keep telling, i am not big on comics and graphic novel even if i have read more than 1000 mangas.
I still liked this webcomic because it kinda resemble the yaoi category in the manga world.

What a cute story! I really enjoyed Carter and Adrian's dynamic, and I look forward to seeing more of them in volume 2 and online. The writing is hilarious, so kudos to Bell. Hazel, the art is gorgeous, and from what I can tell, it only gets better and better. Nice work, both of you!
