Hedgewik, a.k.a. "Store-Brand Stonetoss", "Diet PebblePunt", "Rockthrow Lite", among other names, is an alt-right webcomic. As the aforementioned nicknames would suggest, it is extraordinarily similar to StoneToss in both the method it uses to deliver a punchline, as well as the hideous ideology it promotes. Apart from being a "Clonetoss" comic, Hedgewik has developed a reputation for some of the most hideous artwork ever seen in a semi-popular webcomic. The comics mostly contain themes of antisemitism, racism, transphobia, and other assorted forms of bigotry, as well as the occasionally mild conservative political commentary.

In a vain attempt at retaliation, Hedgewik created a list of Nazi subreddits on his website to route people to them.<ref>"AgainstHateSubreddits - Hedgewik Website subreddit list"<ref>"Hedgewik's subreddit list"
