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!
In an interview with Newsarama head honcho Lucas Siegel, acclaimed comic book writer and grown-up who believes in magick Grant Morrison had a peculiar answer to a question about his long Batman epic ending with Batman Inc. #13 later this month:
"I really think a lot of people will hate it, because it’s super bleak. It kind of – to a certain extent it destroys the concept of Batman," Morrison explains, later claiming that "you cannot bring Batman into the light, is basically what I’ve learned. So we wanted to acknowledge that in this last issue – it’s quite nightmarish in a way."
Chuck Palahniuk announced on Friday that he’s begun work on a graphic novel sequel to Fight Club. During a panel at SDCC, the writer surprised fans when he said that he was working on a new series of stories featuring narrator Jack and his alter-ego Tyler Durden.
Two men who hate each other. One impossible mission. A legend in the making.
A warrior with nothing to fight for is paired with a thieving assassin with nothing to lose. Together they must steal a treasure that no one can reach. The Crown Tower is the impregnable remains of the grandest fortress ever built and home to the realm’s most valuable possessions. But it isn’t gold or jewels the old wizard is after, and this prize can only be obtained by the combined talents of two remarkable men. Now if Arcadias can just keep Hadrian and Royce from killing each other, they just might succeed.
Matt Johnson is a grouchy disgruntled owner of the comic shop Cup o’ Kryptonite in Des Moines, Iowa. In the land of comics he believes in the holy trinity of Ennis, Morrison and Ellis as well as the illusion of a sane Alan Moore. His real world likes include bodychecks, baseball and beer.
I usually don’t have much nice to say about many of the companies that make up the industry that is comics. I tend to sound rather negative – and if you were on this side of the counter, you would probably feel similar.
However, one company has really started stepping up and presenting product in a way that retailers can get behind. That company is Image.
