After working on it for what feels like a million years, Rain - Volume 5 should be available really soon. Ideally later this month, just in time for holiday shopping. This one will feature Chapters 28 through 33, as well as not one but TWO exclusive bonus chapters. Something to look forward to, I hope. ^_^

Again, it's not out quite yet, but I thought I'd show off the cover and raise some hype. Don't worry, I'll be sure to let you know it drops. In the meantime, you can find the first four volumes here:

Do you have any plans to release an ebook of volume 5 (and volumes 1-4) through Lulu, or just print?

Totally off topic here, but I wanted to post this on the 'current' day. I still haven't officially 'caught up' with the comic, and late last month I somehow got it in my head that TDOR was Nov. 12. And that had me thinking about various events in my life, and led to a few comments on strips I was at, one of which I cut off because it veered into this thought.
I had a friend named Susan. She was 'fully transitioned', but in many ways not as comfortable with herself as I am. And we would get together when we could and kinda commiserate and try to lift each other up. She had been an officer in the Air Force ( before coming out at all...) and fairly successful at that. But trying to fit into a 'normal life' was proving pretty difficult. And then she stopped replying to my emails and wasn't getting sent to the tech center..... and then I heard she was gone. No real details, but some very unkind assumptions. It was kind of a shock for me. Not the first one in my life, but more certain and final. A piece of the puzzle of who I am now.
So, even though Trans Day Of Remembrance isn't until the 20th, I wanted to post this now. Susan was always proud of her service. I am proud of mine. It may be an odd part of our lives, in the eyes of many. I am glad I was able to gather more enlightenment during my enlistment. But I don't want Susan to be forgotten. She was a good person. I wish she hadn't fallen. Suicide scares the crap out of me. And as much as being able to help others lifts me up and keeps me going, it's hard to separate from those who don't make it. All I can do now is lift up a memory. I hope you don't mind.
Everyone, be well. Care about one another. Protect and lift up the weak. And never be afraid to lean on those around you. It is what we are here for.

Talk about coincidence. I was just thinking about when the next book cover was going to be posted... And here it is. You must really know your readers Jocelyn.

Has Rain's eye color changed at all? I don't remember it being that shade of green.

Her eyes were a similar green as far back as the first page in color. The lighting may be slightly different so it might appear to be a slightly different shade of green.

I'm going to try to keep this as short as possible, as its off topic...
I am younger than I am physically. I was born when the original owner of the body, alongside his bigoted views, chose death over living in a world where (according to his logic over the problem of evil) god could not exist.
Because of the family I was in, and the Christian community I lived in, I lived a majority of my life as a lie - and still do to an extent (at least until I can move out) - pretending to be this person that I am not. This made me depressed. At times, suicidal. The only thing that kept me alive is a fear of the idea of not-existing.
The original being is dead, he has been dead; and for all this period, I lived hating him with every ounce of my being. And while I can't say that the comic has healed me of my hatred of him, I can say that it finally made me confront myself over my identity.
I'm still rather confused on what I am; I believe I'm agender, but also leaning towards female. I can tell with certainty that I do not want to be male.
I just want to thank you for this comic, that made me confront myself, instead of running away from my issues. Just confronting it has lightened the burden...
I hope one day, I can post again, and be able to share a name I identify with, and it'll be thanks to this comic.

Nameless, I know there are people out there who won't believe you, people here that might not. But I do, I understand how your body's previous owner must have felt (I've felt that... Not enough to kill myself but I have), I understand the want of suicide at such a young age (my brother felt the same), and I know I can't Know how you feel... But I understand what you must be feeling...

I'm really glad that Rain has been able to help you discover more about yourself, to help you to confront yourself, and I too hope one day, you will be secure enough in who you are to share that name with the world.

Being a man who is intersex and trans, and also having DID, I can get where you're coming from. Our original person is a 3 year old girl who suffers from severe psychosis, so I took over and have been out the most for the last 25 years since then.

Coming across this webcomic has:
a) Quite likely contributed greatly towards me still being alive today and chosing to transition.
b) Gave me my new name. (Rudy -> Ruby, yeah no kidding, lol! Ruth is my middle name now)
c) Gave me the clues I needed to learn what a tetragametic chimera is (via Ana), and find out that I am 46XX/46XY.

All this in the span of just a little over 2 years.

That previous post was me, I dunno why comicfury didn't preserve my login.

Just wanted to add one more thing.... about the eye color change mentioned earlier... many MtF transgender persons do experience a change in eye color from HRT. Usually it's a color shift due to reduction in melenin pigment, and is a strong indication that they do not have typical XY dna throughout their bodies. A karyotype test will likely show them to be XXY, XX/XY, or something else unusual.

I got an eye color change from solid brown to central heterochromia with green, hazel, and brown within the 1st thirty days of hormones and was almost 2 years later I learned this is a sign of chimerism or mosaicism.
