Before I start things off, I want you all to know that I recently discovered and read all the chapters of it. I have no full details of the behind the scenes of the comic nor do I have much knowledge on some of the complicated scenes. So I'll explain what I know about the comic so far. Alrighty, now that its out of the way, lets get started.
The Property of Hate (Mostly known as TPOH) is a webcomic that was made by Sarah Jolley (Mostly known to the fandom as Mod because of her Username). She created it sometime in 2012 and what it seems, the fandom started floating about sometime in 2013 and is....pretty big today. Not as BIG BIG as the Homestuck fandom but.....pretty big to the point that it's own discord server has up to 300 members. That has to be by far the biggest discord server I ever joined.
So the comic is a story about a 6-8 years old girl, who is visited by a television guy in the middle of the night, requesting her to "Be a hero". She quickly accepts it, not knowing what she is going to get herself into. The two then begin taking a journey to a world of monsters (often pretty much known as the world of thought....too much to explain, you would have to see it for yourself. But yeah pretty much an Undertale world) and go off to fullfill the "hero's" destiny.
I don't think I really explained the two main characters throughout the description. So i'll make a quick talk about each of them without giving out spoilers. Hero
: The little girl in which the television guy calls her by. She can get curious with the new world around her and can sometimes act distracted and stubborn, you know like a normal little kid would. But she is smart thinking and always tries to act merciful to the monsters around her. She does have a real name, but it can't be revealed for a good reason. RGB
: The television guy. He mostly plays the role of being the escorter and guardian of Hero. He has quite a charming but a bit of a snappy personality. Not that he's a very terrible guy or anything, but I guess it's because he tends to have some personal spaces (which is funny I say that because he is a hopeless romantic and actually has a lover that.....basically, only hangs out in her house and we only see him encounter her once). He's also the most mysterious out of the two of them. Hell not even the fandom knows much about him. It's currently being played out as the story goes along.
I think one thing I like about this story is that it's almost impossible to tell which main character is your favorite. I mean, if I have to choose, it would be RGB. But to tell the truth....this story won't be popular as it is if it was only centered around him. Nor would it be popular if it's only centered around Hero. Playing their roles together, their growing relationship, how they communicate, is what makes me very reeled into the series. It even comes to the point that whenever some monsters tag along with them, it can be a bit distracting. But that also plays a good role because the thing with these two is that they are taking their growing relationship steady pace. It's not the kind of All Might and Deku relationship where they seem somewhat distant and only takes 12 episodes for them to closely bond (Not that I find anything wrong with that, but you get what I mean).
Its just nice to have moments where the creator take turns with the focus between the world that they're in and the two main character's relationship.
TPOH is not
Homestuck. I think it has a bit of resembling designs of it (Alongside Undertale), but its not that wecomic where each page has a gif and often has an animated video of an important event. No, it's just....an ordinary comic. No movements, no music, no sound effects, just your ordinary fan-made looking comic. Howver, despite this, I love how the color design changes in which reflects the mood of whats happen. Not only for the settings and the characters, but dialogues itself.
Funny fact. There was one time the setting went from being all dark to being pure brightness. Hurt my eyes a bit.
Here's moent where whenever something intense is happening, the design would turn into something this.
I guess the only flaw with this comic is that only one page is updated every sunday. Atleast two would have been good, but I guess mod has many stuff to do. Not to mention with how well the designs are, it must take forever to finish one page. So I'll pretty much slide with that part.
If you really want to see the comic, mod also post the pages on deviantart. But I highly recommend you look at it here. thepropertyofhate.com/TPoH/The…
When you finish a page,you can scroll down and click on the arrow to click next. Below the chess looking item , you will see a scroll bar that will help you go to where you left off at. However.....there's a catch. How you use the arrows is extremely confusing. because If you choose the wrong arrow, you will end up with the most recent chapter that is posted, and you will possibly be hit with a spoiler.
In order to avoid this, click the curvy arrow next to one big blue flower. DO NOT click the more detailed arrow at the very right. You will see it look sort of like this (I can't seem to paste a screenshot of it, so bare with me):
(~) This is the arrow that takes you to the next page(>l) This is the arrow that takes you to the most recent page. DO NOT CLICK ON IT IN ORDER TO AVOID SPOILERS!!!
Now that the warning is taken care of, here is my rating for the comic:4.5/5
