This is a story where a bunch of things were lined up just to make a Wizard of Oz reference. I assume it is somewhat overblown (and again, very much like some fanfic I've read) but, like, I wouldn't rule out anything....*Checks out those warnings*
That is a joke, right?
I hadn't heard about this, so I looked it up. Based on their press release, Viz acquired the print publishing rights, plus formed "a strategic partnership ... to develop a comprehensive array of additional entertainment content and licensed merchandise based on the HOMESTUCK universe."Seems appropriate to me. Since he sold the IP to Viz Media, technically anything he writes for Homestuck is fan fiction now.
