What is Homestuck?
Homestuck is a webcomic created by Andrew Hussie that started in 2009 and ended in 2016. The story follows a group of teenagers who unwittingly become players in a game that will determine the fate of the universe. The comic combines elements of video games, pop culture, and internet culture with a complex and nonlinear narrative structure.
The comic is known for its distinct visual style, which incorporates both hand-drawn and digital art, as well as its use of animated GIFs and Flash animations. It is also known for its large cast of characters, which includes both humans and various alien species, as well as its extensive use of world-building and mythology.
Homestuck became a cultural phenomenon in the early 2010s, with a dedicated fanbase that produced fan art, music, cosplay, and other creative works. The comic has been praised for its humor, its complex characters, and its inventive use of digital media.
While the comic itself has ended, the Homestuck fandom continues to thrive, with ongoing discussions, analyses, and creative works inspired by the comic’s universe.
