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!
Hugh Jackman spoke to Collider Magazine about deviations between The Wolverine and the original comic books. “Have you read any of the recent X-Men comics featuring Wolverine?” he said in an interview. “They’re terrible. He’s running a school for mutants now, he’s an Avenger, and he’s dating Storm. He’s on like a dozen teams, I think he planned Spider-Man’s birthday party, and yet he’s still supposed to be an edgy character? They’ve just…they’ve just neutered the character to the point where basically all he does is act as a stormtrooper for Captain America and punch teenagers. He’s literally a hairier version of my cat, which also lacks testicles.”
I have been tinkering recently with a ElseWorlds story/take on Batman set in that 70s styling. So, from the pages of PULP SUNDAY, I give you BATMAN 1972!
To keep him in “the part”, my Batman smokes, wear a leather coat and a turtleneck, and drives a cool 70s BatMobile (an OldsMobile maybe? ;) I still need to decide on brand and model.
Of course, as usually it happens in these cases, I start to flesh out all the other characters/stars of the story. Pictured above we have Selina Kyle, aka Foxy CATWOMAN, Lieutenant Jim Gordon (with period appropriate ‘stache ;)) and Ed Nygma AKA The Riddler.
Yes, you are witnessing the first case of BATPLOITATION. Hope ya dig it.
