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 multiple Eisner-award winning writer of Detective Comics, Wonder Woman, and Queen & Country talks about Lady Sabre and Lazarus!
Two years ago, fan-favorite novelist/comic book writer Greg Rucka decided to try something new. He embarked on a webcomic with artist Rick Burchett entitled Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether. It’s a sublime title to go along with the high-adventure steampunk nature of the webcomic. Recently, with the webcomic still running, Rucka, Burchett, and editor Eric Newsom took to crowdfunding site Kickstarter in order to raise funds for a printed hardcover collection the first five chapters of Lady Sabre. The campaign needed $27,500 in thirty days to succeed; it reached that goal within several hours, and has raised over $100,000 with one week left to go. Rucka has also been busy working on a new creator-owned comic called Lazarus, which reunites him with former Gotham Central collaborator Michael Lark. A look at a future dystopia and the class struggles therein, Lazarus is due out June 26 from Image Comics. Rucka recently took a seat in The Outhouse to talk about his current work, crowdfunding comics, and why going out to dinner has been so important for his career.
