Year In Hereafter is an indie fantasy webcomic loosely based on the Finnish
folklore and national epic, Kalevala, borrowing its monsters, deities and characters.
The story is set to happen between two parallel realities:
Our modern world of 2015, and a fictional sister realm based on the epic's stories.
This parallel world thus has been named to its namesake, known as the
Northern Continent of Kalevala.
For a new reader, there is a lot to cover.
If you fancy, you can grab the PDF versions of both volumes I and II to catch up quicker,
then come back here after finishing them. They're free with the option to donate. Cheers!
Comic status currently: Bit of a schedule nightmare!
Pages and updates will appear as I can get them done, however I can't promise these updates to be frequent in any way. If that sounds vague, it's because it is.
I don't want this to sound like dire news at all, for me this isn't all that demotivating - a little frustrating, for sure, but nothing to put my spirits down. YIH is a time consuming huge project and time is exactly the resource I'm a little skim on at the moment. That aside, I'm really looking forward to deliver you updates as soon as I'm able to.
To stay in the loop I suggest to subscribe to YIH's RSS notifications, or Twitter, or Facebook if you don't want to manually check the site every now and then. I'll see you around soon~
Latest Website Developments:
Hey hey! The website was partially down for almost a month. After using Wordpress as a part of the website for about 3 years, it finally came to a halt - with a crash. I couldn't log into my admin, it was completely jammed, nothing helped, so I had to migrate half of the comic that had been uploaded with the wordpress blog. And now, it's all back in place - and no third party shenanigans! Most of these developments are invisible to you lot thankfully, I've still got some knots and ties to tidy up here and there, but there are also improvements! So, very significant news for me, and the comic is up all normal.
If you have had your bookmarks on comic rocket beyond page 320
, I have no idea if they've gotten messed up because of this overhaul... But I'm sure that it's completely possible. Sorry about that guys, hope you find your place again.
Well, I added this section first of all! Reckoned I should be more vocal about what happens on the admin side, I've been more active with the RSS feed so this feels like a natural step forward. The site has added a Recap section for quick refreshers on what happens on the story, and Gallery section is the flashy newcomer and it's full of stuff. I highlight the recent additions in there with coloured borders, and will inform here when anything's added to either section. Think this will be the first and last update for 2020, wishing you happy holidays~
