Whenever I read Bleeding Cool nowadays, I keep expecting a punchline--that never comes.

Comic Book and Entertainment News is so stupid--how can anybody stomach it irony-free? Similarly, CBR was practically masturbating the Didiot the other day, and I kept waiting for CBR to turn it around into a joke.

Never happened.

I can't take irony free entertainment news. The major players are all such shills and phonies, artistically and intellectually bankrupt, self-serving and vapid.

When Axel Alonso says in a CBR article that he's "super excited about the change in store for the X-books", he's not really "super-excited". It's like the people who are "passionate about sofas". How can a person be "super-excited" about everything? He can't be. Unless he's dropping acid, shooting stimulants, or taking coffee by I.V.

I don't even read the "chat with the EIC" articles in CBR anymore. I just checkout the images to see if any are any worth downloading into my collection. Joe Quesado seemed a bit blunter. He wasn't "super-excited" about everything. I wish I could be half as excited about the few comics still on my pull list as the executives sitting somewhere at the top of the hierarchy behind that comic are.



The Outhouse has basically done for comics news what The Onion did for regular news, shown how ridiculous and formulaic and wrong it all is.



I only go to BC and here for comics news. I used to like the TV/movie news (Comic Reel) at CBR, but other sites like Dark Horizons cover the comics/geek-centric TV/movie news as well or better.

I've read other people's complaints about CBR & Newsarama writers seeming like they're constantly auditioning for DC & Marvel; those are valid complaints, imo.



I think it's more like the Daily Show. There's facts here, but we're not afraid to poke a little fun, too.



Yeah, I'm not interested unless there are made up quotes.



Finding The Outhousers was one of the highlights of the year, as a comic reader, for me. The Real reviews are refreshing plus I was introduced to titles I would have never known existed (like "Voice in the Dark").

Thanks and keep up the good work!

In an industry, hobby, medium, and pastime that is seemingly overrun with idiots, and has become increasingly joyless for me as both a reader and professional, The Outhousers team manages to keep some of the fun alive for me every day. Thank you all for the laughs in 2013 (as well as the actual news and serious social commentary hidden beneath them), and keep up the good work.
