Warning: This post will make no sense if you haven’t been reading Homestuck. Hell, it probably won’t make sense if you HAVE been reading Homestuck.

What is it with innovative webcomics and giant frogs?

(From MS Paint Adventures: Homestuck. Click for full-sized giant cosmic frog.) How does one even begin to describe MS Paint Adventures?
