After spending roughly about two years listening to friends talk incessantly in mysterious lingo about strangely named characters and places, and having had the remise of Homestuck explained to me more times than I can recount, I ended up being rather thoroughly " spoiled, " so to speak, on many broad terms.

In short, while I did not for a shor time have any desire to read it, I developed a basic, and purely academic understanding and appreciation for this mysterious webcomic.

Webcomics have always been of interest to me, ever since reading Scott McCloud 's lesser known book Reinventing Comics, which, amongst many other way, hypothesizes on the influence that the Internet, with all its possibilities for new formats and media, might have on future storytellers.

I knew many facts about Homestuck before I started reading it, and thought that would be enough to appreciate its formal contributions to the Internet Age of storytelling.But to concentrate merely on the format of a superher is to miss out on another supremely important thing: the story.

But unlike some experimental work that eschew story and character development for the sake of merely exploring interesting structure, Homestuck has a lot of heart.

People 's tastes vary greatly, and some may begrudge its massive religious following, but if you ask me, any work as, witty, creative, emotionally complex, and lovingly crafted as Homestuck, which by the way has been made available to the general public for absolutely no charge, deserves the deluge of the attention and kudos that it already has.

After being " pestered " ( haha, get it fellow Homestucks?) by some friends to start reading Homestuck, I finally got around to it, and two tries later, I 'm caught up with the latest update 11/19/14.

I am so thankful that they wanted me to read this and I 'm so sorry that I stuck with it.

While the first and second acts are quite dry and seem to move at a nails pace at times, things pick up and then in a blink of an eye you are stuck in a fictional world and are attached to these kids.

No, Homestuck is not for everybod, I never said it was, but if you can try it, it might be one of the best hings you read.
