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!
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.
A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.
We owe our good health to a humble parasite - a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the tapeworm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system - even secretes designer drugs. It’s been successful beyond the scientists’ wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.
But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives…and will do anything to get them.
