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!
The Outhouse sits down for a comprehensive interview with someone from the Saltire team whose name we forget to ask for.
The Outhouse is a great place to promote your independent, crowd-funded, or self-published comic book, provided you can get past our openly hostile forum community and relentless supply of snark. So, when someone from Diamondsteel comicsm creators of Saltire, a new comic book that claims to feature the “first Scottish superhero,” showed up on our forums and didn’t run away screaming, we knew they had what it takes to get a write up on The Outhouse.
As pet characters of writer Jason Aaron, the Hellfire kids have divided the X-Men fanbase from the start. Some have attacked the inherent ridiculousness of the concept, while others have insisted that’s the point. Wherever you stand, asking them to serve as the main antagonists for 35 issues was always going to be a stretch, and at times Wolverine and the X-Men has suffered because of it. This latest issue highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of the series to date, but ultimately makes a compelling case for its continued existence, paying off almost two years of plotting while pointing toward a bright future.
