I read the whole archive in 4 hours including breaks.
It was so good that I just had to read it all in one day.
I read the whole archive 3 times already. It was definetely the best webcomic I read. I enjoyed everything about it.

I've read through the archives twice.

To be fair though, I only started reading the comic in October. :3

I've have so far read through the entire achieves 4 times, equal most amongst the webcomics I have read past and present. Considering I'm a relatively new reader, it shows that it has more appeal to me then mainly of the others I read or have read.

I found Housepets! late in the summer while surfing Deviant-art and decided to give it a shot. It's one of the best decisions I have ever made, and after I finished the first arc I was hooked! So far I have made a few of my friends read it, as well as buy both books! Cant wait for the next comic tomorrow!

Does the "read the archive in about 4 hours" include or exclude "read every single comment as well as the time needed to click on every single link (and possibly have to drag yourself away from reading another webcomic in one of those links)"? I kind of drifted away from reading Housepets! at the end of It's A Wonderful Dog's Life when it first came out, and started over at the beginning last week.

Why yes I'm obsessive-compulsive, why do you OOH SHINY.

(I would already be done but you all just HAD to break 200 comments on every comic with King in them - 400 more recently)

Yes, I read the archive, and this thread. Excellent, smart, funny, and deep. I cant say how much I enjoy Housepets! Also, first post, I hope to post more.

I just finished the archives a few days ago. It took me two days and another day without sleep! Speed-reading doesn't appeal to me. I like to take in and ponder over the feeling of the images and the comic. I suspect I lack some IQ which makes me slow at this.

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

Actually I've never taken a speed reading course. I just happen to read (almost) as fast as Peanut does naturally. Unfortunately being obsessive-compulsive means I also have to read all the comments too, which is turning out to take longer than expected because around the beginning of 2010 the daily comments went through the roof and also I've been too busy at work and home to devote much time to catching up. If there were no comments and a Weekly mode I'd be done in a few hours at the most. Alas, this does not raise my chances of being Fox's friend. I doubt IQ has anything to do with at all... not many people read quickly, your read time sounds like a normal timeframe, especially if you spent half that time laughing. ;)

It's not all it's cracked up to be, as enjoyment time is decreased with speed. Although even I gave up on trying to read all of TV Tropes. Maybe Peanut finished it though!

we'll just be optomistic and call you a thorough reader.

That doesn't make you dumb, it just makes you have a different method of reading than some people.

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

Actually, Fulgens, taking longer periods of time to mull over information tends to be a trait common amongst those with higher than average IQs, believe it or not. It's a subconscious desire to understand the information as thoroughly as possible before moving on to a new set of data.

Personally, I have the opposite problem. Not so much with comics; but it really shows when I read books and articles and things of that nature. I speed right through in no time at all, but then I realize that I hardly remember any of the important things that happened, and I have to go through and read it a second or third time to actually get some of the less obvious bits that most of my friends seem to pick up on the first read-through.

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

Wow, I don't see how any of y'all managed to get through the Archives in such short amounts of time! I first found this series sometime last week (Romancing the Spot was the current strip), and I only managed to get through it all yesterday. Of course I've got dial-up, so...

Anyways, I just wanna say that this is my favorite comic ever! No doubt about it. I hope Rick can keep it going for a long time to come. :D

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

A friend introduced me to a random comic strip in a timeline somewhere (in the mists of time) and I decided, what the heck, start from the beginning!

About...2 days later I reached the present time and can honestly say, that's some good wholesom fun y'all!

Very enjoyable, lots of likeable (and some not so much) characters and an intersting progression of art styles and techniques. Well written (at least from my point of view, but im no critic :D) and a good dose of feel-good in there :D

Perhaps this should carry a warning of 'please have a bucket nearby so that others can scoop you into it when you melt from adorableness' but I think I reasimilated myself without TOO much of the carpet fluff :D

Defenitely one that i'll be keeping up with :D

Housepets wasn't cool because Res wasn't around to be shipped with Grape. OTP!

Kawaii desu.

And stuff.

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

Took about 2 to 3 days for me to get through the entire archives, started reading online but around half way through found a link to download most of the strips so started over from there. Think i might go through it again this weekend.

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

I read the entire archive sometime before the "It's A Wonderful Dog's Life" arc (when I joined the forum). I loved it, and it became my favorite web comic from that point on.

[Offtopic]The only other web comics where I read the entire archives were The Furry Experience, Dandy and Company, and another that was Christian-themed, but many comics have passed since then and I have yet to catch up.[/off]

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

I found this webcomic in July 2010 through Sinder's signature in the now non-existent VG cats forums. It looked cool so I went and read the whole archive. A few days later I joined the forum.


And that's the story of how I was active for 5 or so months and lurked ever since.

I just got called over to a computer and forced to read without knowing I'd love it, your story sounds more exciting!

And that's my story 'bout how even though I lost my computer to the evil that is parents I continue to post and annoy!

Found this site like..... either wendsday or tuesday. But, ive been litterally reading from the first comic, 10 - 20 pages a day. Except yesterday...... i was wayyyyy busy. And I must say..... why isn't this a book yet? I mean really. I know there's books and everything, but, I would read this more if it was in a book form just saying. Like this reminds me of calvin and hobbs. This is one of the best comics ever. It's up there with Garfield, Peanuts, Calvin and Hobbs, and Pearls Before Swine. Peanuts the best though. Favorite part was when they was role playing, and they was pretending about Pridelands. And Peanut was on a cross and they was like "How do you pled?" Peanut said "Awesome as charged" ..... that was great on so many scales. All I'm saying is, I love Housepets. That is all...

Have the comics posted on here. i know there's books here, and I plan on buying them. but they're different comics from the ones on the site are they? or the same?

Author:  BSAman [ Fri Mar 30, 2012 12:54 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

they are the first and second years, if i'm correct

Author:  RandomGeekNamedBrent [ Fri Mar 30, 2012 2:29 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

yeah, the books are the same, except the second one has the finale of All the King's Men. and both have a couple extra drawings.

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

I read through them all when I found out. I did so because I found them interesting, checked out the first few, found them funny and entertaining, and kept reading!

I don't know of any comics are pieces of text or stuff where I've done that before, but I do it with YouTube series. I found Kootra and Nova's original Minecraft series and I watched them from the beginning. Although, I feel like I've read through something in a similar manner as that, but I can't remember.

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

I just read the entire thing last night.
I got a picture someone linked me, I saw the URL and typed it in... it was sometime around 3-4am.
Then, suddenly it was 6:30 and I had gotten to the last page. I have no regrets!
I just want the King-Fox conflict to come out into the open already, it's driving me NUTS!

I tried to do that with another one... but it was like nine years of comics so it took me two or three sittings.

EDIT: I guess its late again!

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

I recently found this webcomic(2 days ago in fact), i rarely ever read comics(much less webcomics)

but this one got me hooked,i found myself throughly enjoying it, and now i am dying to see the next strip.

King is by far, my favorite character. I am kinda sad that i won't be able to read "All The King's Men Part 2", since i am probably not going to buy the books.

P.S i read the webcomic in more than a single state of consciousness

I first found out about Housepets! a few years ago while browsing DA. I randomly saw this awesome image, but didn't remember to check it out until this March. Just a tad delayed. It took me a couple weeks to get through the whole archives, only because I took my sweet time to make sure I enjoyed it! Housepets! is by far the best comic I've seen.
Now I'm in the process of reading through some of those really good fan-fics by Sinder, Two_Twig and Valerio.

Mr. Griffin, you are superb!

Good luck with those.

It took me a few months to read all of Valerio's. (It was worth it though.)

They're entertaining right? not my favorite web comic but good nonetheless
I read it on my kindle from beginning to September of this year. It looks beautiful on e-ink. I didnt know Rick did these in color until October.

Post subject:  Re: I just read through the entire archives!

alright so i just found housepets sometime tuesday night, right at the point when max got hit with a shoe off the fence ( thats 2013/8/7 for anyone reading this in the far far future). i didnt have time that night so i put it off till wednesday when i had the day off. i started around 3ish and finished at midnight. my eyeballs hurt after that. and today (thursday) ive joined the forums, gone back and re-read some of the more interesting/confusing arcs, and become a total fan in just a few short hours.

Mr. Griffin, i applaud you in such brilliant writing. keep up the excellent work.
