Well, it's a little off putting at least. From what I've heard it's rather (enter basically any word)-ist (not that I'm saying I definitely agree), I certainly am not persuaded to give it a read.


That's everyone's main problem. I understand not liking it just because it's not your thing, but majority of the time it's "the fandom is annoying". Unless what you're reading is literally the fandom, I don't think they should have any input in your decision.

Oh, no no, that last bit is what I've heard of the comic itself, not the fandom. Heck, the Zelda fandom can be a bit ass-ish, too. Chances are it's not true, but hey...

It's full of paradoxes and the destruction and rebuilding of universes, it can't really be explain by just saying "a hundred years ago this one thing happened".

Xenogears was released all at once, for one game. Everything was thought out, and put on the disc, only to be given out once everything was done.

Homestuck is a webcomic, a couple pages a day for the last 5 years. It's alot harder to put out info if everything is still in writing as you speak. Plus, most of the stuff getting explained in the comic is plot twists, which you obviously can't just plop into the beginning.

Well, technically that can be explained well, but if it's a webcomic that isn't planned out from the beginning then...yeah, it's not going to be the best writing if it's intended to be extremely complex.

By that note, I also don't think that everyone will like it. I don't know what you meant buy "-ist" (do you mean offensive, like sexist or sth??), but the humor definitely is not everyone's cup of tea and even sometimes I find myself going "that was not okay". I don't remember anything trigger-like (I think it was just kinda tasteless), but there is tons of cursing, and it's unavoidable. It doesn't bother me, but of course there's always someone.

Also the art. More recently guest artists have been helping out, making the comic look nicer (like fo' real), but for the first 3 years of it, it's these weird chibi looking sprites that almost stopped me from reading it all the way through. It's still the main art too, unfortunately. The fans have better art than the comic does whoops
