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 United Saints of America Rising to Power August 2013, Saints Row IV Announced, Bitchez
Today Deep Silver announced that Saints Row IV, the ball-busting next chapter in the Saints Row franchise, is starting a party in your pants this Fall.
In the next open-world installment of Saints Row, Deep Silver Volition continues the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the highest level – the leaders of the free world. In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.
Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet.
Save the world, Saints Style.
Developed by Volition, Saints Row IV will launch on current-gen consoles and PC on August 20, 2013, in North America and August 23, 2013, in the rest of the world.

Frank used to see all you puny fire obsessed talking monkeys as walking part stores, but ever since Son of Frank told Frank and Bride of Frank that he is living human 2 years ago, Frank have to come to terms with desire for fresh parts and want for Son of Frank to be happy. This not easy choice for Frank, but so many years after Frank kill Dr. Frank it time for Frank to re-evaluate self and family.
We’ve been told by certain hard partying sources that Hollywood is all about keeping score, especially in the fierce world of scoops about superhero movies. That’s why we’ve asked Dr. Nathaniel Worcester of the Hollywood Institute of Keeping Score to comment on their recent decision to award points to the website Comicbookmovie.com for the recent news that Dave Bautista would be playing Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
I’ve always had trouble wrapping my head around writing bloated reviews for a twenty page comic that usually serves as 1/6th of a larger story. But I’ve often found myself tweeting a thought or two out on a comic and thought, perhaps I’m onto something here. Or not, but I’m doing it anyhow.
For those following me on twitter, I’ll be tagging my reviews with #RVWS and anyone wishing to join in, if you use the tag I’ll post your review as well. Plus, since I’m embedding the tweets here, any responses to one of my tweets (should you feel the need to tell me I’m a genius or idiot) will show in the article as well.
This week, we’re tackling comics from this past wednesday the 13th:
