Andrew Hussie is the creator of MS Paint Adventures, a collection of webcomics, including Homestuck, as well as several other web comics, books, and videos.


The most popular of Hussie's comics is Homestuck, which is about a group of kids who play a computer game called Sburb and inadvertently cause the end of the world.

Homestuck was on the reading list of Nick Mathewson, creator of Tor, and one of Foreign Policy magazine's top 100 global thinkers of 2012.[2] Homestuck was also cited as evidence that the "recent rejuvenation of adventure games has legs."[3]

Homestuck has been compared to Ulysses because of the complex and densely worded storytelling the series often utilizes.[4][5]

Personal life[edit]

Despite his popularity, Hussie has managed to maintain quite a bit of secrecy regarding his personal life. His exact age is not generally known. References to dates made in his Blogspot blog[6] and Formspring account[1] suggest that he was born in 1979, and that he is a Virgo.

He graduated from Temple University[7] with a degree in computer science.[8]
