Anyone else think this is pretty much the best thing in comics?


It's a very shaky ride but it is an interesting one. I do enjoy it, for all its faults.

>:]

Andoran

Andoran

Faults?


It's an experimental format that has little allowance for review and editing by its author. It tends to have pacing issues, and some of the writing and mood-shifts are a little wonky.

Unlike a novel, it isn't written in its entirety and then edited until it is as good as it needs to be then published. It's an ongoing process.

Nevertheless, it's something I would say is worth experiencing. I do not say read, as it is more than just a comic. It's something that defies easy definition.

Also the latest update blew up Newgrounds due to the massive number of views.

Andoran

Haha! Yes you are (subjectively) (where subjectively = most people agree) right!

Andoran

oh noooooooo

Andoran

Umbral Reaver, you are not a TRUE FANN.......

Andoran

Anyway that was the last time I will watch the EoA5 for a while. I am starting my fourth reread of Homestuck today. It is seriously delirious biznasty.


'TRUE FANN's are horribly annoying. Homestuck has a really bad reputation for having one of the most annoying fandoms on the internet. I prefer to be a regular fan.

Yeah but our title is pretty awesome. (Really I get what you're saying. I guess there's just a certain part of the population that MSPA really resonates with. Not because of shared experiences, but because it is in our GENEWS> Or something.)

Anyway MSPA is pretty cool. I'm not sure if I should keep necroing this thread - wait does it really count as necroing if it's still on the first page? - but I guess I will to see if anyone else reads Homestuck. I mean, how many people are there on the forums? There's got to be more than [edit]four[/edit] HS fans. And more than one TRUE FANN.......

(BTW porn people are not TRUE FANN......s. They are dumb people who make Andrew Hussie post about them on his tumblr.)


I read Homestuck. Got shown it by Gark. It's pretty well brilliant. I love the characters, love the music and love the story (once I've wrapped my head around it). The massive amount of brick jokes, hidden meanings and all-in-all continuity is mind-boggling.
I do see several flaws (Act One, for instance), but I can't recommend this comic enough.
Except by the standards of other people. Most people I talk to about it would like me to shut up. They say that to a lot of things I recommend, in fact.
Actually, even when I don't recommend anything...

I don't spend a lot of time on the MSPA forums, but I like to follow the comic and occasionally pop in to the Skaia imageboards and tumblrs to see if there's anything interesting. I think it's the only piece of fiction I've ever read fanfiction of (the TV Tropes page on Homestuck has a listing of good ones). I typically keep well clear of fanfiction.

Since I've been reading it from the very start (I started following MSPA during Problem Sleuth), it's been a bizarre thing to watch the community around it evolve. I've hardly been more than a lurker, but it feels like being part of something unique just for having witnessed it.

Andoran

I follow a few tumblrs (jitjitjit). The only real fanfiction I've ever read is Be the Sea Dweller Lowblood. Perhaps MSPA is able to pry us from our curmudgeonly invulnerability to the niggling tentacles of fanfiction because of its original medium - a forum adventure. Something defined by the community. /snip

If I experienced it serially, I probably wouldn't be so insane.* But of all the comics I've read,** it holds up the best to archive binging. Act 1 is not a flaw - not only defining John's character, it is self-sufficient as a comedic essay. /snip

*Just finished Homestuck Act 1 of MSPA Reread #5.
Yeahhhhhhhh.

**see the thread about webcomics you read for an incomplete list that shows how much better I am than you


Well, what with Act One scaring away half its potential readers, I'd call it a flaw. :P


I didn't know it did that. I didn't find Act 1 that bad.

Andoran

Some people think Act 1 is bad. I'd hardly say half are scared away, though. Out of six people I've actively requested read Homestuck, only one has given up in the middle of Act 1. (Two have finished it, one is reading Problem Sleuth, one is in Act 2 and continues to slowly read, and one is in Act 2 but hasn't read any in a while.)

On the other hand, MSPA selects for non-casual readers. I think many a Paizonian has read my fevered allusions and decided to check it out, only to shy away at the sight of the unmoving first page. I only started reading after Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics referenced its awesomeness thrice - and even then only when bored by about 1,500 comics of the same art and dialogue style.


Of the four people I've tried to get interested, all four have given up because of Act One.
Just saying. :P

Qadira

I just wish Hussie'd stop being such a troll. Speaking of which I frickin hated Hivebent at FIRST, but they won me over, and now my favorite character is Karkat Vantas, my birthsign.


I had started it about a year and a half ago but I gave up somewhere in Act 1, I found the programming references interesting, but the pace felt slow and just meh. Then about 6 months, I met this girl who kept referencing it and showed me some fan art which drew in my curiosity (I was confused because I didn't realize it was the same comic), after slugging through the Act 1 it began to pick up and got way more interesting.

The experience is like visiting a friend who keeps you in their boring, typical room showing off their outdated computer when they have a teleporter, spaceships, and dinosaurs in their backyard.


This seems to be a recurring theme: Andrew links a thing from his twitter or tumblr. Five minutes later, that thing's server has crashed.

Correction: two minutes later.

yeah he has some really crazy fans
sorry
TRUE FANN......s

Andoran

Cool flash.


Not the most surprising of outcomes.

Shadow Lodge

I blame Dave for this. I'm not sure how, but I'm certain it's his fault.

So, it looks like the fate of the universe(s) might be hanging on Roxy's ability to pronounce 'Calliope' without drunkenly stumbling over it.

Shadow Lodge

Welp, we're doomed.

Andoran

Dave is Lord English, obviously. (Possible reason for LE's "demise" in the proximity of horses being ironic. Apart from the one-trick pony joke.)

Yo dawg I heard you like kernelsprites.

Andoran

I present to you the lowly Jit, an abject figure.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I am actively keeping up with Homestruck and have read all of the other comics.

Andoran

Awesome!

Andoran

How long have you been reading?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Honestly...about a couple of months now. I noticed it when I was reading Goblins and the artist was promoting his comic for the Battle Royale for Webcomics. I've been hooked ever since.

Andoran

Neat. I remember that poll . . . GKC deserved to win, I think. It's a pretty cool comic that is "on the rise."


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The only thing that bugs me about Homestruck is how the author will use the flash animations to explain several parts of the story all at once and if you don't pay full attention to it you miss something.

Andoran

Yeah, some of them bear rewatching. I missed a bunch of stuff when I first read it.

The greatest opportunities for missing stuff are the walkaround games, though, because not everyone has patience for them.


Mighty boonbucks raised in mere days for the Homestuck video game kickstarter.

The boondollar pile doesn't stop from getting taller.

Andoran

It got mentioned in Wired and Kotaku too. I can't wait to see the execution of the panel of that first fantroll.


Execution, hmm?

Andoran

punz

Andoran

This is a pretty great interview

Shadow Lodge

The Be the Sea Dweller Lowblood fans were pooling some of their money to get one of their characters (Cuvier) in for one of those fantroll slots. The author hasn't updated her tumblr in a while though so I don't know how it's going, but I figure something'll come up within a day or two, given how close the deadline is getting.

In other news it's been too long since Jack has had some screen time. Though I hope we get some for PM as well before we jump back to Meenah.

Andoran

I sort of think we'll be switching back to Meenah in the next update, but I could be wrong.

Ckret2 was indeed raising money, to the derision of the Trol Seasson team. I'm not sure that she achieved her goal; I think she's lost a lot of fans since the height of her fame.

Shadow Lodge

Yeah, the TS guys were posting over on the other board we use for SDLB stuff. Couldn't get heads or tails from whoever was involved, it seemed like there was a lot of contradictory info thrown around.

What username do you use over there, btw? Mine's Oblivion.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Do you think there will be a chance for people like me who just wanted to buy the deck of cards and nothing else from the kickstarter pack, but didn't want to pay $130 dollars for them?

I plan to get the game when it is available, I don't mind paying extra for the completed version.

Shadow Lodge

Not sure. Hussie made a passing mention of "some of this stuff might end up on Topatoco" somewhere, but nothing since.

I would have been interested in the cards (and maybe one of the plushies, think they would have made a good gift for my niece) but likewise I couldn't fork out $200+ for the tiers with them. Plus I didn't care for the bags and most of the other junk mixed in between the low tiers and the stuff I wanted. A shirt wouldn't have been bad, admittedly, but the rest of it I didn't care about.

WHOAAAAAAAAAA

I'm Fish, I know you! Even if you don't know me. Do you follow Dreamlinger? I think you do? WOWWWWW this is ridicinciulous.

But yeah I don't follow the alternate discussion board thing, regrettably.

If they're economical to produce for this, it's quite possible that they'll end up on topatoco or what pumpkin.

I help WRITE Dreamlinger, along with Takum and mythicMonster, and a couple other people who have up and vanished on us. Takum's just a much better artist than me. Drosic (the psycho seadweller) and Orthas (the just-introduced redblood necromancer) are my characters. Lack of further updates are due to Takum moving.

And yeah, I've seen you about =)


Whoda thunk Orthos would write for Orthas? =O

(I'm Ladybug over there. I just don't post much.)
