@Captain LeBubbles
Actually the majority of the cast comes from my old Escapist Radio Theater comic so they've had names since forever... but come to think of it their names didn't come up much in that comic either...

Good question.

@AnXjak
Nothin really wrong with your comment but lets keep the explicit curses behind funny looking censor symbols, if we just gotta curse. This is a relatively kid friendly site, after all.

You'll never understand Question Duck :D Even we who are caught up couldn't tell you.

About 6000 pages long.

What the heck I'll give it a shot

Four thirteen year olds play a game which affects real life and turns out to have universe shaking consequences. It gets more confusing than you can imagine.

Wow, they're flying! Uh, I guess that's normal for a duck, but still.

What isn't it about?

Homestuck is closer to being an illustrated book than actually being a comic, but that doesn't stop it from being enjoyable. It is about Kids who are internet friends and have just started a game who will destroy the world, their only hope of salvation is to win the game. But even then they discovered it was screwed from the start even before they were born because of some weird time shenanigan.

There is John, the derpy friendly character
Rose, the smart ass girl
Dave the too cool for school guy
and Jade the daydreaming girl who know much more than she should.

They end up having in their hand the fate of two universes.

I don't like Homestuck. Come at me, Homestuck fans.

Dreamslayer (Guest), Nov 15, 2011, 02 pm

Based on what the fanart shows, its probably something involving lots of.....illegal substances... based on all the tripping artwork

"A tale about a boy and his friends and a game they play together."
-The official description from the Archives page of MSPA

"Homestuck is both a story and a puzzle, by design and by definition. If asked to define it, “a story that’s also a puzzle” is as close to true as any answer I’d give."
-Andrew Hussie answering a question on his tumblr blog, MSPAndrew.tumblr.com

Homestuck sounds incredibly boring and stupid...and I'm not saying that to troll the fans.

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT HOMESTUCK--

LiquidMountain (Guest), Nov 16, 2011, 01 am

Sweet, another HS related one.

A-273 (Guest), Nov 16, 2011, 09 am

.

A better question would be "Why is homestuck considered a comic?" anyway...
The thing is about 4 kids paying a game. that's it, no more no less.
Now, what happens in the game is a rip off of the neverending story movie, twisted as much as possible and mixed with "snarky" comments & pop/nerd culture references from the 80 trough 2010.
What caugth my attention the most is the fact that homestuck's start is not even good it is at the most mediocre and for you to begin reading it you need to be harassed by a fan that will try by all means to convert you.
the saddenin part is that the community of it is downright creepy, and i don't even plan on saying more than that because if you took a look at it you would know and if you're part of it then you need to get your act together, stop for a few secs and then look at what you've done as someone that knows little to nothing about homestuck and then you will realise that you have turned into a monster.

@A-273 (Guest): Oh my God. Finally somebody else that understands! I love you.

Pinkkrice, Nov 17, 2011, 02 am

Jesus...

It really is true that the more popular something becomes, the more there's a "love it or hate it" mentality about it.

For the record, I love Homestuck, but I hate the fandom and I don't participate in it. I can understand why people would think it was stupid. It takes a ridiculously long amount of time to pick up, and I didn't actually read the whole thing until my 3rd or 4th try. But the people who say they love it are always the people who follow through and judge it as a whole, and the people who hate it are always the people who couldn't or woudln't follow through becasue they judged it very early on. It's got a sense of humor and story telling style that is extremely unconventional, and the bottom line is not everyone is going to like it, and that's fine.

But, as with anything that gets popular, if you don't like it then obviously it's the stupidest thing ever and everyone who likes it is likewise stupid.

As for what it's about? Well, it's pretty much about the end of the world, and then the end of the universe, and then the end of the universe that created that universe, and then the end of existence, and then the end of time and space, and so on and so forth, all tied in with the idea of this cosmic "game" by which all universes are created. But really, it's just an insanely complex, confusing, detailed story of awe-inspiring proportions that presents itself in such an absurd manner with such a strange sense of humor that the whole thing borders on satirical. The point of Homestuck is to be a fun mix of being insanely confused and being dryly hysterical. The exact plot becomes almost arbitrary. It's just amusing, it's fun. Nothing to get that worked up over, really, but it can be quite addicting.

Personally, while I can barely read Mr. Hussie's extravagant writing style, I do like Homestuck.

It's about some guys playing a game to make a universe, and people in that universe will play a game to make a universe.

tl;dr: Universeception.

The_Hankerchief, Nov 18, 2011, 11 pm

It sounds interesting, but I really haven't had the time to flip through it. (Constant travel sucks like that). I've slowly made it through the beginning, but haven't gotten much past it.

100% TRUTH.
I have never met anyone who read the entirety of Homestuck who didn't like it and didn't think it was clever.
The sense of humor is almost entirely self-referential and you get out of it what you put in. It doesn't beat you over the head with a bunch of jokes anyone would laugh at, you laugh because the jokes are subtle and involved with the characters and story.
You can't take Homestuck's humor out of Homestuck and expect it to be funny.
So people who don't read all of it and skip around don't "see" a lot of the jokes and don't find as many amusing.

-Rant Complete-

Homestuck is... about Homestuck.

A story that's also a puzzle

Kids and fun.

anadgght (Guest), Jan 25, 2012, 06 am

It's entirely about gay teens making out

Yangyexin, Feb 24, 2012, 01 pm

Wow, mention an internet fandom, get swarmed by comments. xD

Increasing complexity.

lilmissbunnybitch, Jul 26, 2012, 12 am

derp the powers of copy paste

Homestuck is "a tale about a boy and his friends and a game they play together.

On his 13th birthday, John Egbert receives the latest computer game, an immersive simulation game called Sburb Beta. Working with his friend Rose Lalonde, they discover that the game allows the players to manipulate their reality.

I'd like to point out that just because some people in a fandom are creepy isn't a reason to dismiss the entire fandom.

Homestuck has a large fandom, and a tendency to attract geeky people.

Geeky people by and large have a higher tendency to be weird than the average population.

Some people who are weird can be downright creepy.

A set of people called A's enjoy the same activity. Some A's are B's, some B's are C's, some C's do some weird creepy stuff.

The larger the group of A's, the larger the group of creepy C's.

It is both faulty logic and downright rude to dismiss either A's or the activity that A's enjoy because of the actions of a subset of C's.
