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!
What can I say? The superheroes I was introduced to when I first began to read, and continued to read as I grew up, don’t seem to exist anymore, at least not the way I remember them. Sadly, it seems that DC and Marvel have taken something that once held so much magic, wonder, and innocence, and twisted them beyond recognition… at least for me.

I just find myself unable to read and enjoy a lot of the stories they are putting out right now. DC is the worst offender, but Marvel with their non-stop events aren’t innocent either by a long shot.

Internet denizens were stunned to discovered that they had used up every possible joke related to the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman. ”Holy shit, guys,” said Twitter user Joshua Lansberry, aka @Battleberry304. ”We’ve run out of jokes already. But there’s still like 20 months left until this movie comes out!”
Last week, we reported on DC’s decision to change the title of Vertigo series Collider, which had only published one issue, to FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics, or FBPFBPfbbpppffbbbbtttt for short. The reason for the name change?
