Homestuck, by Andrew Hussie. Man, what a smart guy. When it’s on its game, which it usually is, it’s one of the most profoundly entertaining comics reading experiences of my life. There was a time when I would have said “fiction reading experiences”, but, well- the story is so long and meandering, my mind lately is starting to cry out for closure. Too much of a good thing perhaps.
I don’t want to say too much about the story. Or anything at all, really. It ends up somewhere very different from where it starts. In fact, I wish I could reproduce for y’all my baffling and mind-blowing introduction to this comic. I don’t think that would work, but if I were to try, I’d post this comic:
which I stumbled onto randomly somewhere, and leave you to it. It was so, so weird I had to learn more about the sick weirdo who made it. After a lot of clicking and googling I ended up on a cluttered page with that image above of a boy in a room and a hyperlink. I started reading this thing, thinking it was some kind of demented lark by an internet recluse, and pretty quickly had my mind fully blown. I will treasure that experince always.
Anyways- disclaimer: I think maybe 1 out of 10 people I’ve recommended Homestuck to have been at all interested in it… so… I don’t know… Give it a shot!
