Bleeding Cool Top 100 List Neglects Outhouse, So We Spoil Contents of List

The Outhouse refuses to turn the other cheek for this egregious slight.

Rich Johnston wrote a thinly veiled attack against the Outhouse in his debut issue of Vanity Project  Bleeding Cool Magazine. In the magazine, Johnston lists the 100 most powerful people in the comic book industry but fails to mention either ThanosCopter or Jude Terror, the intrepid reporters responsible for much of the Outhouse's news content.

This is not the first slight that Johnston has made against the Outhouse. He misspelled Outhouse writer's Zechs' name in a recent article (changing it to Zecchs, a well-known slur against Chicagoans) and has often lifted articles from the Outhouse, claiming that he heard about the stories independently "from a reader".

In retaliation for the slight, the Outhouse has decided to spoil the contents of the Bleeding Cool List, much like Johnston does with many comic news stories, much to the chagrin of the mainstream comic book media, which freqently acts as little more than obedient lapdogs for major comic book publishers, and which follows strict embargoes on announcements as well as awarding stellar review scores to every book, in exchange for exclusive access to content and creators.

We've also inserted the power team of Copter and Terror in the 79th position in the list, mainly due to their crack news stories, biting satire and Copter's former role as the primary vehicle for Thanos, the villain of the upcoming Avengers 2 movie. This unfortunately means that Ethan Van Sciver, BC's 100th most powerful person (due to his art and facebook cult of personality), has been dropped off the list. As a conciliatory gesture, we'll be happy to mention that Obama sucks and is probably a terrible person, even by muslim standards.

Here's the top 10 on the list. If we do not receive a hand-written apology from Johnston by tomorrow afternoon, we'll spoil the rest of the list. Our threats will not be ignored. We WILL BE RECOGNIZED. VIVA LA OUTHOUSE.

#1: Jim Lee

#2: Isaac Perlmutter

#3: Robert Kirkman

#4: Geoff Johns

#5: Joe Quesada

#6: Brian Bendis
