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!
Joe The Barbarian is where I first remember paying attention to Sean Murphy as an artist. After Hellblazer: City of Demons and American Vampire: Survival Of the Fittest, Murphy joined my “must buy” as an artist – a category he shares with only two other artists, Sam Keith and Scottie Young. So when Punk Rock Jesus was announced as a limited series from Vertigo I made the note right away to pre-order the trade as soon as possible. It wasn’t until after I re-read the solicitations that I realized that Sean wasn’t only attached to this as the artist, but also the writer my curiosity was peaked and I became more and more impatient for the book as time passed. When I finally received the trade I drank it in going so far as to read it while my wife was fretting in the waiting room while my son was having tubes surgically implanted into his ears. In brief, as an artist on my must buy list, Punk Rock Jesus did not disappoint. As story, Sean Murphy has a while to go before he makes that list as a writer.
