I know the creator of Gear Comics, and much of what you are saying is either subjective opinion or outright slander from someone who is angry at a former roommate from when they prevented you from completely screwing them over. I'm not saying that HBD or any of the others are the peak of the web-comic scene. But I'll bet that this entire post is motivated by your own personal anger at the artist, who bailed on you when you got shitty.
I remember being mad that I wasn't a part of the Comic's story even after 6 years of loyalty to Trey, but now I'm actually pretty relieved. But I feel ya, man. Sorry you had to be associated with that comic.
A number of things in this article are inaccurate. I just wondered if you'd be interested in my clarifying a few things or not? I don't want to intrude or criticize, just there are some things the author could not have know that led him to incorrect assumptions. It's been a while since I worked on Exiern now and I have the distance and freedom to talk about things I could not say at the time.
if you did not like it then stop reading it, if you are just reading to critic it then you need to go find a life outside of the interweb.
Would anyone happen to have a copy of the original X-rated 2002-2006 series with co-author Stickdevil? I can't find it online anywhere :/
Hi chimney speak!!! I'm 1 of your fun and also an artist. Is Your site already down??? I red all your works i think last last last last dunno how much month, I havent read your final arc :C.. did you move your comics?? and where??? i want to read it… I love your art, your style, story, plot everything… you are 1 of my inspiration… So, please LEt me know where you move XD. sorry for my bad english
This is the worst article i've seen. OOTS is a great comic. The writer has an illness on his hand making it harder for him to continue his work, yet you use foolish arguments against it. The fact that you stated "it deserves to be here" on first line kinda pissed me off.
From the other replies, clearly you made a poor judgement of it, what makes me think what is the real purpose of this site if liking a comic or not is shearly connected to personalities.
If you guys like to label webcomics as bad, i'm pretty sure there is another website rating bad sites. 100% sure this one would be there.
Honestly….. That was very Hussie-like. A lot of drabble and not a lot of meat. And yes, I do actually LOVE Homestuck. Yes, it gets boring, yes it'll take you forever to actually read the whole thing. But most of your "points" are mute…..
- John (who I'm assuming you're reffering to as the "Main Character") is absolutely NOT a Gary-Sue. I've seen Gary-Sues and he does not have any of the usual characteristics
- I actually enjoy Hussie's Self-Inserts and find them rather funny at times. He's doing something that no one else really does and reminding the audience that there IS actually an author behind the story, and not just the characters.
- I will agree that if you try to binge-read the entire series, the plotline does get annoying. But Homestuck wasn't MEANT to be binge-read, but rather have a couple pages read every week. And YES it's been going on for three years, tell me ANY comic, web or not, that hasn't been going on for awhile.
- I will, one hundred percent agree that Hussie could have delved into a lot of the characters more. But at the same time, I think the comic itself had too many main characters, and that's why Hussie didn't really touch on a lot of them and just killed them off. I've done the same thing in my OC roll-plays.
- As for action. There's none? I don't see where you're getting this idea. If you ask me, there's actually a lot of action. No, it's nothing like Act 3, but at the same time, Act 3 was sort of the turning point of the story, where we went from one set of protagonists, to a completely different set. So of course nothing's going to be the same. We're dealing with a completely different world, different culture, and different characters! I think Hussie wanted to convey that in the change of "fight-style", and I think he did just that.
- WHERE THE HELL ARE THESE FURRIES YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT? AND BESTIALITY?!?!?!? I see none. None whatsoever. So I have no fucking CLUE where you get that……..
- And honestly, the GIFs you're talking about, I personally enjoy immensely. Maybe I'm just looking at it from an artist's standpoint, but that's quite a lot of work put into those pages.
No, I'm not a "rabid obbsessed-fangirl", but I do absolutely love Homestuck, I love Hussie's writing style in it, and I love the round-about way that he throws everything at the reader. It poses a challenge, it says "Here. Read this and try to connect the pieces. Oh, here's some random fluff to confuse you. Get it yet?" And I think some people (including yourself I assume) just don't like that kind of brain-stretching. Which I can understand. Yes, it can be hard to follow, yes Hussie could have touched it up with some more detail. But goddamnit, it's an awesome storyline and gives the fanbase a LOT to work with! I'm having tons of fun just trying to create my own fantroll, and next my own fankid. And that's another thing, the fancharacters can be so completely unique and creative, but also obviously be APART of something. Most fanbases lack that. And I think that's what ultimately draws and keeps people. The fanbase. Have you SEEN some of the shit we crazy Stuckers have come up with? Sadstuck, Drivestuck, Fuckstuck(dunno if that one's an actual fan-done thing, but it probably is…..). The possibilities for the fanbase are unlimited! And that's something that other fanbases are lacking now-a-days.
I completely respect your reasons for not liking Homestuck. And at least you took the time to actually read it, unlike many Homestuck-haters who don't even know what the artwork looks like because they've never been to the site to even read page one……. But I honestly just can't see your side of things!
And just for reference, here's what a Gary-Sue is. (YES I KNOW THIS IS A MARY SUE ARTICLE! ITS THE SAME DEFFINITION PEOPLE! -.-')
A female fanfiction character who is so perfect as to be annoying. The male equivlalent is the Marty-Stu. Often abbreviated to "Sue". A Mary Sue character is usually written by a beginning author. Often, the Mary Sue is a self-insert with a few "improvements" (ex. better body, more popular, etc). The Mary Sue character is almost always beautiful, smart, etc… In short, she is the "perfect" girl. The Mary Sue usually falls in love with the author's favorite character(s) and winds up upstaging all of the other characters in the book/series/universe.

Ask me about webcomics.
at least they aren't masterbating to just the non-humans, furries and anthros are different, furries lean more toward human, anthros lean in the opposite direction, at least they aren't bronys, which some of the brony yiffers (also, yiff is a dirogitive of the word sex, yiffy is sexy, and so on), have been known to have sex with plushies of the my little pony characters, and have sex gratifying sequences of pony internet pornography, which one is worse? and at least it doesn't hurt anything, zoofilists and furries are absolutely different, furries have sex among themselves, zoofilists however do not keep sex within their own species, and literally have sex with dogs or other
no need to focus on the things you don't like, life is too short, I belive in the equality of life, meaning as long as nothing is being hurt or killed in the process in whatever your doing, I have no problem, but I have exeptions, for example I think the human, should only have sex with other humans.
so true, and I love how nobody is complaing about bronys, considering furries can masterbate to human-like non-humans, but bronys have been known to literally masterbate to the my little pony characters, is it me or does one sound a little better?
at least its human-like species, humans having sex, whats wrong with that? now lets look up beastiality, slang term also known as zoofilia, having sexual inetrractions with non-human species, get the difference?
nice stereotype , ignorant people like you should research something before they go off being a asshole like you.
no, look it up, the watching cnn's bit on furries isn't a good idea, media has destroyed furries reputation and labling them as sex freaks, zoofilists,
hahahahaha this guy is hilarious.

Ask me about webcomics.
What a bunch of twats you lot are, obviously you dont have a clue what it takes to create a genuine piece of art, its actually
a very popular web comic.
Hackeron - If you actually took the time to read the comic instead of having your head up your ass you would see it has a fun
comedy storyline that started from very humble beginnings. There is nothing racist about the comic it is a "Parady of life" with lots
of humor. It seems that your taking it serious which is "fucking hilarious" in itself. Also that track is rough copy made by two world
renowned House artists. None of the pictures have underaged girls in it but if thats what you want i suggest you go look for it somewhere else, so stop
being a twat and go back to reading spiderman or something with big print. I expect your mental capacity might be able to cope with that. If you think
its so bad why have you read up to chapter 5? I use to have a english teacher at school who went on about an erotic programe on tv and how bad it was!
It didnt stop her watching the whole thing though so obviously she enjoyed it. Its the same with you obviously, otherwise you wouldnt be up to chapter 5.
MakarovJAC - Its called a "Fan comic" so theres no copyright infringement of any sort here. Try typing Tomb raider into google
you will see hundreds of fan sites. Its also free so there is no money being made out of it so get your fucking facts right before you try
spouting off about things you know nothing about! It looks like the first couple of chapters are made from a program called XNA which
is perfectly legit to use as well and the rest is using daz or poser.
oddguy - No you dont and no it isnt.
In summery just as well this site is being close down, hopefully the new version will have less moronic twats like you lot on it. There should be a new
site called the biggest pricks on the internet so someone can add you lot to the list :)
Let's just go already.
Ask me about webcomics.
The idea of someone having superpowers in a Star Trek-like setting is a neat idea and Mookie's writing has improved a bit. There's no one I want to punch in the face like I did with Gregory Deegan (when he became a wanna-be metalhead). I'd let it pass for now and I'm hoping he doesn't go the Dragonball Z route or try to be metal like he did with Dominic Deegan.
