Obligatory Problem Sleuth Appreciation Thread

That's it that's the thread

It's good

If you read PS, then skip to the HS Intermission and read only that, you get a great experience out of it, because the two universes are surprisingly cohesive and compliment each other very well

It's kinda ironic that Spade's intermission is the best part of Homestuck purely because of how much Problem Sleuth energy it has

Problem Sleuth used to be like, the greatest comic of all time to me. i remember just being blown away with its surreal humor being used to tell an epic story. some parts were so great i ended up getting up from my keyboard. also obligatory mention of weird puzzle tunes. i once listened to that album and trying to sync up the song to the part of PS i was at and it was an amazing experience.

It honestly kinda is. I remember getting into homestuck in 2013 and thinking it was an amazing read. But when I was all caught up I read problem sleuth and it was just so much more engaging. I loved the characters and the community and the concept around homestuck but problem sleuth as a story? A complete package? Absolutely surpasses it and its really nice to have at least some of it in Homestuck

What sucks about Homestuck is it makes it impossible for me to show people Problem Sleuth. I showed my friend some panels from PS and they thought it was so funny. They asked me for a link to read it but when I sent them Homestuck.com they went oh it's a homestuck thing nevermind.

I tried explaining to them it was different but the damage was done :(

Well, I mean... there's always the backdoor to MSPA.

Which doesn't always work for Homestuck because of the fancy different layouts and themes, but since PS is only ever on the stock background and only ever has panels, it may actually work, and you could read the entire comic all the way through.

Anyway, let me appreciate Problem Sleuth a little, to keep it on-topic.

Image

This panel rocks so much, whenever I think of "cool character-appearing/disappearing effects" my mind goes directly to this. Everything fades to inky blackness and then Death's visible parts twist away, like oil on water...

It is pretty much entirely kick-ass.

I'm more easily reached at ceeps#9999 on Discord. I will respond to reports faster there because PHPBB's notification system is borked and doesn't email me when you report things.

Can someone convince me to give PS a try? I've always heard that its amazing but i've never been able to work up the motivation to read it. What's great about it? How is its rhythm and cadence compared to say, early homestuck?

Problem Sleuth starts off just as slowly as Homestuck Act 1 does, but because its plot beats are primarily forum suggestions it has a very wacky and goofy progression similar to Acts 2-4.

It's a lot simpler than Homestuck, has fun characters, and if you like Homestuck's humor, then Problem Sleuth is full of that.
