The Homestuck Independent Creative Union (HICU) is the creative team responsible Homestuck spinoff projects, headed by James Roach.


Snake Solutions Studio had been responsible for the ongoing production of Homestuck^2: Beyond Canon since its launch in 2019. In 2020, however, the comic went on an extended hiatus, and Snake Solutions was subsequently shut down. Some time later, around 2022, Andrew Hussie approached James Roach about the comic's completion, and Roach was tasked with putting together a new team of people. On October 9, 2023, the first new Homestuck^2 update in almost 3 years was posted, and the HICU team was officially unveiled to the public.[1]


Andrew Hussie "remains available to the union for consultation", but is not creatively involved in HICU projects.[3]
