Suriska - webcomic

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

Freya and her cousin Corin live in a tiny northern town of Suriska. Afraid of missing a job opportunity, Freya moved to the town to become a primary school teacher, Corin joining her two years later to escape his parents, in the boldest decision of his life. However, tucked isolated in the mountains, with a population of 150, the place isn't exactly the definition of paradise.

Complications arise when an unscheduled train arrives with passengers seeking refuge from an imminent snowstorm. Soon both cousins are forced to reevaluate their priorities - as well as their unstable relationship with one another.
