Homestuck is, like its predecessor Problem Sleuth, an Affectionate Parody of multiple genres of video games, and a ridiculously-but-awesomely complex story. It's a story of four kids and the game they play together, which happens to be a game that offers a way to escape the end of the world. And then we have the Geodesic Cast of the other characters associated with the session: four guardians, four exiles, four kernelsprites, twelve trolls... not to mention multiple sets of alternate-universe counterparts. This story is riddled with Mythology Gags to the point of becoming Continuity Porn. Don't let that stop you, though. Andrew Hussie is a master at tying up Kudzu Plots neatly. Just be careful: if you want to understand this series, expect to spend hours upon hours reading the recaps, watching the forums or wiki for associated "IDE/Theories" and explanation of how the current events tie to previous ones. Speaking of the forums, they're... weird, but awesome. Just like the comic. In conclusion, read it, but don't be surprised if it starts taking over your life.
