a lot of parallels.
I think you may have missed a couple of points there.


I recommend reading Maus. It's a good comic.

Also the same author's/artist's comic about his mother's suicide. It's included on the same CD.

Fun stuff. Only ~50 pages so far though, and no regular updates, but it'll make for a good 30-45 minutes of entertainment.

Oh, I hadn't seen the rabbit cost. Maybe all the straw / ground covering they require that needs to be exchanged often?

I find it odd that rabbits cost more when you spend a fortune on cheese when you have a dog:

When people say homestuck do they mean MS Paint Adventures?

Why do people like it?

Why is everyone so obsessed with Homestuck?

The little bit I've seen reminds me of Kid Radd. I hope that when I get around to actually reading the comic it's as awesome as that resemblance would imply.
Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon

I guess homestuck is more accessible. The end of PS being animated and over the top is pretty cool, and I say homestuck because we can talk about problem sleuth instead. Cause they're two different things.
There were iffy periods, but i stuck to it and overall I am pleased. IT went off into a lot of tangents but it's very well done. And a ten minute long animation of SHIT GETTING REAL that happened just as I stopped reading due to college shit. IT just floored me. I mean, all those things got put together somehow, and I like it. I know I was like "wtf" when the trolls came out, and this venture would serve as a full fledge product imo than a comic.

MSPA in general is quite funny and has some great running gags, but it gets very tedious, complicated and longwinded with the actual story arc, so getting through Problem Sleuth was a serious chore for me. I still haven't summoned the willpower to pick up Homestuck again from the point where the troll characters are being introduced.

Oh shit it gets convoluted as fuck. I mean, time paradoxes hella everywhere. But that's part of the awesomeness. You can personally not like it, and I can see flaws in it. Very wordy, difficult to follow at times with like 16 main characters flying around at one point. It just gets me. The collab with music makers and other artists for the projects are interesting. Homestuck I enjoy much more, but as a comic I enjoy it much less.

He puts a lot of effort into it, genuinely likes what he does, can make a living off of it, and people are entertained by it. The success of both PS and HS rely on the ingenuity and sheer amount of time he puts into it, plus porn ads.
