Suriska - webcomic

A slice-of-life comic about trains, bad weather, and insecurities.

Suriska: population 150. It's neither Freya nor Corin's definition of paradise, but it is their home... if you could call it that. Apparently it's where you end up if you try to change your life for the better. What does it take to get out of this rut? It might take spite, it might take snowstorms, or it might just take a reevaluation of your morals.

The comic follows the two cousins as they struggle with their own mental illnesses and their unstable relationship with one another in a good-for-nothing town.

Updates weekends.


Claire (a.k.a. "Piney") is a 21-year-old fourth year cartooning major at School of Visual Arts, and writer and artist of Suriska. She expects to receive a BFA in 2018. Originally from Richmond, Virginia, she currently lives in Manhattan.

Although Suriska is her first long-form comic, she hopes to publish many more webcomics and graphic novels in her future comics career. In her free time she enjoys reading comics, taking long showers, and crying over dog rescue videos.
