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!
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!”
Werewolves are comfortably running New Orleans, but things are about to be shaken up.
I came into this comic with absolutely no expectations. I read the title of the book, saw that it was by Dark Horse, and felt it was worth a shot. Before I get any further with this review let me tell you right now that it was a gamble that paid off.
One of my favorite parts of X-O Manowar is the main character, Aric. He reminds me a lot of Conan the Barbarian, but, y’know, with ridiculously powerful space armor. Aric is exceedingly powerful with the armor, but what makes him truly dangerous is his lack of understanding of the modern world. His more ancient perceptions of power and control are going to cause all kinds of trouble in the very near future in the Valiant universe. That trouble is most likely going to lead into Valiant’s newest upcoming title, Unity.
