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!
Infinity is ambitious and confusing but beautifully drawn.
Looking at July’s sales figures, I was struck by the sales disparity between the first three chapters ofDC’s Trinity War event. Whereas the crossover’s first chapter, Justice League #22, sold over 110,000 copies to retailers, Justice League Dark #22, the third chapter of the event, sold only 61,500. If ICv2’s figures (or at least their ratios) are remotely accurate, only 56% of readers who read the first chapter of the event would have access to the third chapter. It’s an odd little statistic, one that speaks to the inherent flaw of multi-title crossover events: If retailers don’t significantly increase their orders, the readership is screwed.
Breaking out of Dark Horse Presents and into his own mini-series, Brain Boy launches this September. Though Brain Boy isn’t a Dark Horse creation, originally published by Dell Publishing in the sixties, Van Lente and Silva hope to take the hero to the next level.
