The first of two updates for February is now live. In case you haven't heard, Homestuck^2 will be updating TWICE AS SPEEDILY FROM NOW ON, thanks to the frankly ridiculous generosity of our Patreon supporters. The second update for February, as well as this month's bonus update, will be arriving "soon". And by that, I suppose we mean "a month sooner than they would otherwise". See you then!

To the fans: Thank you so much for your support so far. Over 1400 and counting of you are supporting our Patreon and made work better for folks on all projects from What Pumpkin.


Today marks our first Bonus update, available to all our $5 supporters and above. We step back three years and see Earth as of the end of the "Meat" epilogue, on the day of Jane Crocker's inauguration as President.


We think it's valuable to show our appreciation for the fans who are making so many projects possible with some fun exclusives. For this content, we wanted to stick to some basic tenets: It should focus on characters or situations outside the big events of the main story, and none of it should be required reading for understanding the plot at large. However, it should still provide insight into the characters featured and the world they live in, much like the Paradox Space comics during Homestuck's original run.


As for how to talk about this content and share in the mass cultural effervescence of Homestuck with each other, everyone on the team loves and supports fanart, fanfiction, cosplay and analysis of our stories. It's sort of like how you can make fan content for a film, TV show or book without uploading the whole thing online.

If events from the Bonus comics become relevant to our main story, summaries and synopses will be posted on our recap page, where you can catch up quickly on The Homestuck Epilogues. This ends up working a lot like 'traditional comics,' where long-running series frequently cite other books. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Hi there! Welcome to the news section, where you can find out new and exciting information about Homestuck^2, straight from the horse's mouth. You've probably got some questions. Is this really Homestuck? Is Andrew Hussie involved? Who else is working on the comic? And what's that horse's name, anyway?


The answer to (most of) these questions and more can be found on the FAQ page, so hopefully you won't have to Frequently Ask any of them.


Anyway, you're here for gossip. For the salacious, sordid details. As a thank-you for visiting the news page for the first time, here's a special piece of juicy info: this website is LIVE! That means you can read Homestuck^2 right here, right now! Isn't that a thrilling prospect. Let's all take a moment to bask in just how exciting and, dare we say, unexpected this announcement is. But don't feel bad about not having seen it coming. You're here now, and that's the important thing.


This update comprises the "main" update for the month of October. The next update posted to this site will be the main update for the month of November. Additional *~*bonus updates*~* will also begin in November.


What's this about bonus updates, we hear you ask? To find out more, please make sure to check out our Patreon page! Pledging to the official Homestuck Patreon is a great way to support the independent creators behind the comic, and to get your grubby little hands on some bonus Homestuck content that you won't find anywhere else! It might even be the BEST way.
