About

Andrew Hussie is a prolific creator of webcomics. The most popular of his creations is Homestuck. Hussie, despite his massive popularity, has managed to maintain a level of privacy; details on his personal life (such as how old he is, for example) are scarce.

Online History

Old Webcomics/Whistles

Andrew Hussie at one point maintained a webcomic site with Cindy Marie. His earlier comics [1] are now archived. Notably, one of his works, Whistles [2] became a published graphic novel in 2007. Hussie would not produce another novel until the book versions of Problem Sleuth and Homestuck were created.

TNG Edits

Andrew Hussie, working with Jan Van dem Hemel, created numerous parody videos of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Their edits, posted to numerous accounts such as Jandrew Edits [3], received millions of views. Hussie continued making and releasing TNG pariodies from 2006 to 2009. (Also see: "Star Trek: The Next Generation Parodies → Jandrew Edits )

MS Paint Adventures

MS Paint Adventures [4] is Andrew Hussie’s website and home of his current and most popular project, Homestuck. MSPA adventures began as a host of Adventure Game-style comics Hussie would draw in MS Paint. One notable feature was the use of fan submitted commands; this would eventually be withdrawn in Homestuck.

Problem Sleuth

Problem Sleuth was the first of Hussie’s projects on MSPA to be completed. Spanning 1700 pages, the comic was written between 2008 and 2009. Problem Sleuth was a film-noir parody set in a loose prohibition-era setting. Many of the running gags in Homestuck originated in Problem Sleuth. Problem Sleuth was eventually released in book form. [5]

Homestuck

(See the main Homestuck Page )
Homestuck is by far Hussie’s most popular work, and has spawned a massive fandom. Featuring a myriad of characters and thousands of pages in length, Homestuck tells the story of in Hussie’s own words “kids and fun”. Homestuck differs from Hussie’s earlier works in that it is the first to incorporate Flash elements. Homestuck also has several dozen albums of official music [6] and a company producing merchandise called What Pumpkin. [7]

Reputation and Notablility

Trolling the Readers

Hussie has a reputation for trolling his readers and generally using his fanbase for his own amusement. Hussie created a fundraiser to allow him to buy a portrait of a football player fighting a horse on a mountaintop. [8] Hussie also received donations from fans to have a portrait of his soul commissioned, [9] but created the supposed soul portrait himself and went to Olive Garden instead. [10][11]
