Horror Crime Kung Fu Historical Thriller Moth City #6 On Sale Now; #1 Free on Comixology
`When Tim Gibson contacted The Outhouse, right before the release of Moth City #5, and asked us to review his comic, Ol’ Jude Terror asked himself the obvious question: what the hell is this guy thinking? Sure, an endorsement from The Outhouse is highy sought after because we hate pretty much everything, so when we say we like a comic, you know it’s gotta be good. On the other hand, if the comic stinks… well, let’s just say, there is such a thing as bad publicity.
So I passed the request along to fine folks on the Outhouse Review Team, but, most likely due to the fact that this style of digital comic, where the same page is shown over and over with panels or dialog altered to create a sense of animation, translates into roughly eight billion skillion “pages” for a single issue when compiled into PDF form, nobody ended up reviewing it. Still, Tim Gibson was undeterred by our (accidental) refusal to cover his book, and he contacted us again with the release of issue #6.

Review: Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth #7
`Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth #7 with art by Ken Kristensen and story by M.K. Perker continues the story of Todd and his dysfunctional family. Todd, who wears a paper bag over his head on account of him being so incredibly ugly, constantly stumbles his way into dangerous and hilariously ridiculous situations. Along with his father, Gus, who is obsessed with daytime TV, his mother Peggy, who would give Narcissus a run for his money, and their adopted daughter Sandy, who is actually the daughter of a soap opera star, the four of them form the most dysfunctional family since the Greek pantheon…
