Let me tell you about “Homestuck.”

It’s difficult to do justice to such an immense piece of work in such a small space, but it’s also impossible to do justice to “Homestuck” without giving away most of the plot. Andrew Hussie began writing and, for the most part, drawing the comic since April 13 of 2009, and has 8142 pages, many with multiple panels and some with embedded flash videos and games.
The generic explanation of the plot is that a boy and his friends are playing a game, but it quickly becomes much more than that. Currently divided into six “acts” (and sometimes into further acts within them), the plot unfolds. At first the reading may be a little slow, but the introduction of new and exciting characters and the thickening of the plot might just be enough to keep you hooked. The comic also features flash videos with music and artwork often provided by fans.
What starts as two named characters and a few other contributions develops into 32 distinct major protagonists, each described and displayed in enough detail for fans to quickly develop attachments to the individual players of this “game.”
The writing style of the comic is at once very natural and incredibly goofy. Hussie develops a different “quirk” for each of the characters, in both speech and type, and portrays each of their personalities to an impressive degree. While the introductions may be confusing, before long they all become quite distinct individuals.
The plot is thick, intense, and occasionally confusing. Some sections beg to be reread (or re-watched) for the sake of understanding, but Hussie usually does a good job of recapping events for readers when necessary. Even when it is necessary, it’s entertaining.
“Homestuck” readers can spend hours, days, or, in a few rare cases, months eagerly awaiting an update. It is so beloved by fans that it is has inspired hordes of cosplayers, sometimes to the ire of others. It should also be noted that Hussie raised over $2.5 million with a single Kickstarter to develop a game based on the comic.
It’s a comic that’s hit or miss with personal preference, but the millions of fans speak for themselves. It’s worth the time to check it out.
