Founded in 2006, The Outhouse has developed as an independent community of comic book fans with an unapologetically honest and outspoken opinion on comics and all aspects of geek culture.
We are not a corporate-backed megasite beholden to the interests of publishers and content creators through an incestuous trade of exclusives and talent access in exchange for unabashed promotion and five star reviews (though we are willing to be for the right price.)
The Outhouse is for geeks, by geeks.
Check out The Outhouse's perfect offering of tongue-in-cheek analysis, serious commentary, and unapologetic stances on comics and pop culture. Then join our community on the forums, facebook, twitter, or your favorite social media platform!
All week long, Marvel Comics has been releasing a series of short, one-phrase teasers promoting announcements at their panels at New York Comic Con this October. The non-stop barrage of teasers has had bloggers scrambling to come up with witty things to say about them, pushing their skills to the utmost limits.
“CORPORATE, which features the team of Peter David and Carmine Di Giandomenico will be publicly offered at the Amazing X-Men & The Marvel Universe Panel,” quipped a battered and bloody sdsichero, reporter for The Outhouse, in an article yesterday reporting on four of the teasers. Obviously, the blogosphere was running out of ideas fast.
"Oh god!" Hero cried, collapsing into a heap on the floor. "Make it stop. Make it stop!"
` Gail Simone has a new blog post up today, in which the fan favorite writer and real life superhero shares some thoughts on the marriage controversy that spun out of the departure of J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman from Batwoman two weeks ago. You know the one. We wrote about it. The entire blogosphere did, for a week straight. Oh ok, fine, we’ll go over it again.
East of West keeps me constantly guessing about what’s actually going on. We’re only 6 issues in and the series is bursting full of lore and content. Now, I love East of West, but it can be overwhelming. There’s so much going on and so many characters to keep up with that I’m sure it’s a pretty big juggling act for even writer Jonathan Hickman to keep straight.
` A collection of thoughts and Easter eggs from this week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Welcome to the first installment of S.H.I.E.L.D.Dossiers, a weekly look back at some of the Easter eggs from ABC’s new series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. If you’ve readArrow Annotations, our weekly look at CW’s Arrow show, you’ll have a basic idea of what this column is about. While this won’t be a comprehensive collection of Easter eggs and references to the comics/movies (I’m going to skip some of the more obvious references), I will do my darndest to catch as many as I can.
The websites may come to legal blows over an article claiming Megan Fox will play Boba Fett in Star Wars Episode 7.
It’s a slow news week, which means it’s time once again for normally serious comic book and geek blogs to start ripping off The Outhouse by writing joke articles to pass the time. The latest attack on The Outhouse’s proprietary formula comes from MTV Geek blogger Alex Zalben, who published an article this morning humorously speculating that Megan Fox will play Boba Fett in Star Wars Episode 7 because the star posted a photo of herself referencing the character on social media.
"Hey, that’s our joke!" cried Outhouse blogger Jude Terror when he learned of the article. “I should know, I recycle it about twice a week!”
