Welcome to the MS Paint Adventures (hereafter referred to as MSPA) thread!
If you're new here, then welcome!
What is MSPA?
MS Paint Adventures is a collection of four webcomics done by a combination writer/cartoonist Andrew Hussie. All four comics are a great read and are a great way to cure boredom or spend a few weeks of summer.
The four comics are:
A hardboiled team of three detectives discover an unspeakable evil, and must fend for themselves. But is it real, or just in their imagination?
Problem Sleuth status: Completed.
Four kids receive copies for a beta of a game called SBURB. They decide to play together, however, the game is not what they think...
Homestuck status: In Progress.
Jailbreak: The Quest for Freedom. (The first adventure)
Bard's Quest: Slay a Dragon! (Multi-pathed)
Bard's Quest: http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=2
Jailbreak & Bard's Quest statuses:
Bard's Quest: Standby
Hussie uses several styles of art over his four comics. Most of the styles are fan-named, and Hussie himself rarely acknowledges the fact that he changes style.
Homestuck has an entire team of artists dedicated to the comic, mainly to help lighten the load on Andrew during flash production, by contributing images for the animation. The art team consists of many people, but notable ones include:
• Michael Firman
Examples of art by members of the art team:
That's right, Homestuck has music, do you know many other webcomics with music?
I didn't think so.
Homestuck has an entire team of musicians who create music to fit the theme of certain segments, as well as for the comic's many Flash animation pages.

Waiting for Hussie to release an update? Bored out of your skull? Just looking for something else to read/look at the pretty pictures? You're in luck, because Homestuck's community is nearly infested with variangly interesting, funny, artistic, and sometimes just downright confusing fan-run adventures. Some (Read: One) of these have turned into their own webcomic!
