Curious: Old aptGG Readers

I was sorta going over comments from my old pre-reboot comic, reliving the nostalgic sadness of it dying and people in the comment box rueing its demise.

I'm just morbidly curious, how many of you guys are actually here from the old days/old comic?

Did you expect HoH to come back the way it did after the mega-hiatus over my summer holiday?

First security question is so simple, that I expect it to be s trick. Maybe it is always double. Or prime numbers (and you don't know 1 is not prime)

Second, I stop reading for a while (I think years) and started again recently. So I think I may not be relevant for that question.Especially since I stopped because I lost the bookmark.Now I follow via rss.

Third thanks for all the pixels

I did read the pre reboot comic. As for what I expected, to be honest I don't remember.

25531: Umbra - Sunday, April 25 2021 - 2:35 PM

I never saw the original I just found the current after some exploring of top webcomics online

25533: Mystik - Sunday, April 25 2021 - 3:16 PM

I’m a new reader

25534: Orange - Sunday, April 25 2021 - 4:02 PM

I found you initially on DeviantArt, then started following your comic. I loved it from the get go, and was super sad when it went on hiatus. I didn't really expect it to come back, but I'm glad it did!

25535: Sean - Sunday, April 25 2021 - 4:25 PM

I did read the old comic and I was very pleasantly surprised when the reboot happened.

25537: mu - Sunday, April 25 2021 - 5:05 PM

I am! Didn’t expect it to come back at all but glad it did.

25538: SirBlackAxe - Sunday, April 25 2021 - 5:14 PM

I've been here since A Path to Greater Good!

And I've seen too many webcomics go on hiatus and never come back to have expected this one to buck the trend, but I'm glad it did.

25539: Lord_Incaros - Sunday, April 25 2021 - 6:55 PM

I dunno. I didn't find out about your comic until after the reboot.

25540: Netraam - Sunday, April 25 2021 - 11:39 PM

I've been here since before page 50 of the original. Was a follower on Deviantart for some time too. Never expected it to come back, but I'm so glad it did!

25553: Lord Bayaz - Monday, April 26 2021 - 7:14 AM

Found the comic after reboot, on an another webcomic forum

25554: Thrymr - Monday, April 26 2021 - 8:11 AM

Joined in sometime close to the end of the old, pleasantly surprised by the reboot/remaster.

25555: Avistew - Monday, April 26 2021 - 9:10 AM

I've been here for a while. I remember a few style changes in the previous comic (Path the the greater goood, I think it was called?), and Noah's redesign. I definitely didn't expect the comic to come back after the hiatus, but I'm very happy it did!

25556: Tom - Monday, April 26 2021 - 10:09 AM

Proud to be an OG fan. Super happy that you came back to it.

I was a bit weirded out by the change in art style, but it grew on me.

I'm of mixed feelings with some changes. Tobi living in video-game world I found very jarring at first (but very cool concept).

Noah being a lame kid, comparing to Lelouch-Noah before, is tough on me, but I do love his arc and cast.

25560: Whimbrel - Monday, April 26 2021 - 11:11 AM

Followed APtGG in High School, checked in on it after falling off webcomics for a few years to find it had rebooted as HoH! It was a pleasant surprise, most of the other comics I used to read merely died.

25568: dbl - Monday, April 26 2021 - 3:00 PM

I've been a reader for about 2 years now.

25569: Bisected - Monday, April 26 2021 - 3:21 PM

The return was a welcome surprise, but I didn't expect a reboot after the long hiatus.

25570: Kiithnaras - Monday, April 26 2021 - 6:17 PM

I am indeed here since before the reboot.

I didn't expect it to return, and I was initially unnerved by the way it returned purely because it was not the same, but I think overall it is better now - it was more a personal adjustment to a shift in tone and style.

Burk is Burk, and if nothing else Burk is the one universal constant.

Tobi is a much more rich character this time, though, and Noah is much more interesting with the interplay between himself and Ciel instead of effectively being a Holmes-like savant. Even if I sometimes find Noah's utter lack of sense for self-preservation off-putting, I understand a flawed character is generally a more interesting character. ; )

25571: TCW - Monday, April 26 2021 - 9:05 PM

Started back when it was a A Path to Greater Good... so long ago. Can barely remember. Keep up the fantastic work neorice!

25576: giovanni - Tuesday, April 27 2021 - 5:30 AM

i am here from before the reboot
i still remember blonde noah and how his intelligence beat veda.

but i don't remember much else.

where you on drunkduck at one time?

25589: orangetree - Tuesday, April 27 2021 - 1:30 PM

I was not here during APTGG, but I've been here long enough to have heard about it for some time.

25592: Hennet - Tuesday, April 27 2021 - 3:22 PM

I started reading before the reboot but didn't get very far, I rediscovered the comic later after the reboot and got fully invested then.

25594: K - Tuesday, April 27 2021 - 3:50 PM

I started reading around page 50 of the new version, the quality and frequent updating is what's kept me around.

25597: Zeratanus - Tuesday, April 27 2021 - 7:37 PM

I don't get around to commenting anymore, but I'm still here from way back~ Still loving the comic, in all its versions!

25600: Grey - Tuesday, April 27 2021 - 11:16 PM

Three, I mean... Long before Skype existed and Messenger was still thing. Tobi's story was near end around that time...

25606: Z2 - Wednesday, April 28 2021 - 12:17 PM

I showed up right after the first megachapter was complete for each character in this comic, but I eventually went back to read APTTGG. I do think new Noah and Tobi have a lot more going for them, narratively, than the previous version did.

25607: ekeron - Wednesday, April 28 2021 - 7:21 PM

I found this webcomic back when APTTGG was still new before Tobi left her world behind.
I think I'd found it through a forum?
This comic made me truly appreciate pixel art.

25610: Iggy - Thursday, April 29 2021 - 12:12 AM

I started reading near the tail end of your old comic. I was disappointed when I saw that it was discontinued. I decided to randomly check the comic years later and to my delight saw that it was rebooted.

25622: Nick - Thursday, April 29 2021 - 6:12 PM

Been around since the beginning!

25633: someone - Friday, April 30 2021 - 3:50 AM

Forgot when exactly I started reading, but I'm pretty sure it was before the first of the many hiatuses that plagued APtGG.

It's pretty impressive that APtGG died before reaching 300 pages (several of which were filler) while HOH is now at 1856 pages and counting. And instead of hiatuses and filler, we get stretches of daily updates and even double-sized daily updates like currently!

I mean, most webcomics that go through a reboot end up dying again before they finished redrawing their second chapter... With this reboot you proved you knew what you were doing.

25652: Luko - Friday, April 30 2021 - 5:35 PM

I am here since that time somehow... (thank you for making me feel old by the way...)

And no.. I never expected the reboot to catch up and I honestly stopped reading the comic for a good while right after the reboot happened (sorry xD). I'm glad that I was wrong about that one xD

25653: Jason - Friday, April 30 2021 - 8:01 PM

I read the old comic and enjoyed it before it ended; I kept it in my RSS feed in case it ever restarted and picked up the new one when I rediscovered it.

25657: tracer - Saturday, May 1 2021 - 3:13 AM

I found Hero Oh Hero after it got to top 10 at TWC after some glitch. That was late in 2014, middle of the first Noah's chapter. Then I learned of APTGG from the forum. (What happened to it, by the way?)

What I liked about APTGG:
- Character portraits in dialogs.
- Noah.
- Pablo.

On the other hand, I'm glad painted backgrounds are gone, and every mention of Smile cult in the Noah's arc felt wrong.

I was overjoyed to see Pablo return in the reboot.

And seeing a webcomic come back and become more active after a long hiatus... I can recall only one other example: College Catastrophe.

25668: steven - Sunday, May 2 2021 - 4:51 PM

Yep! I read the old comic and enjoyed it. I will admit i got frustrated when it became irregular and you just started posting just random things.
Your art is fantastic, the characters and story is interesting. Honestly, my only disliked part is the game show and stuff from Toby. It feels like its dragged on forever :(

25702: Yenklette - Friday, May 7 2021 - 8:39 AM

I'm here from the old crew, though I fell out for a while when it went on hiatus. Also, I love the Tobi arc.

25708: Taran Alvein - Friday, May 7 2021 - 5:44 PM

I think I started reading around the time Tobi escaped from Lorg. I got here thanks to TV Tropes, which is honestly how I pick most comics I read these days.

If the story sounds interesting, or if there's a hilarious situation mentioned that I feel the need to get context on, I'll start reading and see how I feel about the comic.
