Is Homestuck bad?


#1

I realize there’s already the web comics thread but i felt like this topic deserved its own thread.


#2

Homestuck is good, actually


#3

Are you saying

that you would let me

tell you about Homestuck?


#4

In my opinion the first half of Homestuck is a masterpiece, I think it’s pretty much downhill from there though.


#5

how much homestuck has influenced me as a person scares and confuses me


#6

Is this a plug for let me tell you about homestuck? cause i already listen to and love it


#7

I read Homestuck last year for a podcast, and Homestuck is actually Very Good.


#8

Sounds like a bad podcast tbh.


#9

Yo I listen to and really enjoy your show


#10

I wouldn’t know I only know about Homestuck because Dave X Kat (top tier otp) and Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff never actually read beyond it.


#11

It is not, but you should listen to it anyway.


#12

I feel the same way about Homestuck as I do about anime in that the fandom scares me off from ever engaging with it on the lightest of surface levels


#13

dont do me like this fam


#14

Oh gosh thank you!! We work real hard on that thing so I’m glad you enjoy it!


#15

I mean you aren’t wrong

Honestly, I think Homestuck is okay. I met a lot of my current friends by reading it, and it introduced me to a bunch of new artists through the EoA flashes.

But at the same time, from a narrative perspective, the thing is way too long. Like, way, way, way too long, and I think that damaged it for me. After a while, it just became easier to wait for the entire thing to end and catch up afterwards.


#17

I feel very torn. I really loved Homestuck. Then I just kinda stopped loving Homestuck. So maybe? It’s definitely left an impact on how I act and I made a lot of friends through it’s at least not all bad.


#18

Homestuck as a whole is okay imo but the real good stuff is The Intermission and all of the music albums honestly.


#19

I’d have to say I really love homestuck but it’s not good.

I binged through all of Problem sleuth when it was pretty close to the end of it’s arc and followed Homestuck for a long time then I went on a trip for a weekend and when I came back I was a million pages behind, I deleted the bookmark and never looked back.
