What Outhousers are saying about Comics 5

Written by Jeremy Shane on Monday, October 31 2011 and posted in Features

And interesting clash of opinion in sometimes easily digestible one sentence quotes from everyday comic readers here at the Outhouse.  Now also featuring the Our Valued Customers comic.


 Wolverine & The X-Men #1

"This was much better than I thought it was going to be." - Starlord

"Awesome book. Jason Aaron is the best writer in comics right now." - The President

"Loved the hell out of this book." - Holland Oats

"This book was outstanding. And for once the back matter was relevent and entertaining." - malcolm reynolds

"It's fresh, it's fun, and it's a little bit chaotic, and I wouldn't want it any other way." - TheGeek

"I thought the issue was ok... I've always been a fan of the older, more family-like atmosphere in the X-men than I have of the high-concept mutant freak conglomerate that we've seen in recent years" - GeekReaders

"This book is a lot of fun so far. I actually liked that Bachalo's art here. For the first time in a long time it was easy to follow." - avengingtitan


 The Incredible Hulk #1

"Jason Aaron takes over the Hulk, and it's pretty damn good." - Punchy

"Great Book. I didn't really know what to expect out of this, but I really really liked it." - MistaT

"This was just good enough to check out the next issue." - 48THRILLS

"It's good, but Banner as a mad scientist could easily end up dumb." - rdrsfn82

"i don't know what you people are smoking, but i thought this book was completely awful." - pat

"This was pretty good. I hate Silvestri's style these days..." - Holland Oats

"I like the book but it is such a tremendous jump from what Hulk had been over the last few years that it was kinda shocking to the system." - Knuckles McSmasher

"I didn't care for the book; it was ok I guess. I'm just tired of hulk without banner stuff, I'm tired of hulk the barbarian..." - xaraan

"I loved this book" - GHERU


 Superman #2

"I really enjoyed the issue. I'm still unsure on all the characters' relationships with each other" - chap22

"A solid issue, and an improvement over #1." - Punchy

"Superman/Clark seems to be a lonelier, more pathetic pu$$y than before. I paid $2.99 to read Superman, not Charlie Brown." - The Nacireman

"This comic is decent but it's making the same exact mistake that Amazing Spider-Man did when Brand New Day started." - Dragavon


 Amazing Spider-man #672

"This was a great issue. The only thing I would have preferred is if Mary Jane kept her powers and was the new Scarlet Spider." - Dragavon

"like the rest of this arc, this was a very good issue." - Punchy

"it was fun to see Kaine evolve past being a vengeful failed clone." - fieldy snuts

"i loved this storyline, and all the tie ins were great as well." - e_galston

"The story was a bit uneven at times because too much stuff happened in tie-ins I didn't read, but this was a fantastic issue." - The President

 Ultimates #3

"Epic book. Feels Luke Warren Ellis during his Stormwatch/Authority heyday" - Holland Oats

"I really wanna like this book but it always feels like there are pages missing." - avengingtitan

"I really think this is Hickman's best work in long time." - Punchy

"I'm enjoying this book a lot. Each issue keeps bringing it." - fieldy snuts

"this book has been all kinds of awesome" - GHERU

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
