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 latest episode of Game of Thrones has come to pass, The Rains of Castamere, and it left a lot of broken hearts in the world. Fans of the show have come to expect a bit of darkness, but the Red Wedding still took many by surprise. It was no different for those of us that read the books years ago.
Although we share your pain, the Red Wedding is what every reader has been waiting for, not just due to the desire to see the powerful scene on screen, but to see the reactions of Game of Thrones fans that haven’t read the books. If watching Ned Stark beheaded at the end of season one didn’t clue people into Game of Thrones being a different sort of fantasy story, then the Red Wedding certainly did.
The nifty interactive version was coded by my friend @mentalguy. Or if you to print it out, download the PDF (page 1 / page 2).
The Modern Superhero Comic Event Picker was inspired by an episode of the 3 Chicks Review Comics podcast in which they joked about someone making a “grim n gritty wheel.” I decided to give it a shot, but it ended up transforming into a modern age gimmick generator — because what is grim n gritty now, other than another gimmick?
Marvel, having let their movies take the news lately, released some PR for an Infinity related project. The graphic shows “Mighty” in large text and shows 6 hexagons, 5 being “offline” and one with a fist. Mighty is expected to start September 2013.
As more company get websites ready for new game releases we get an idea of what games we might see at E3.
Since the old forums have been closed quite a while and did not open up for the release of the Fable: The Journey game for the 360’s Kinect, it’s probablys safe to assume that Fable 4 is one of the dozen exclusive titles Microsoft might be talking about at E3. Most fans knew the game was on the way, but getting details as soon as next week would be great.
