Marvel great Stephen Wacker and rising superstar writer Cullen Bunn launch a Twitter campaign for the Outhouse to get more access to the House of Ideas.
Over the past couple of days, superb Marvel editor, Stephen Wacker, and mainstream comic writer rookie of the year, Cullen Bunn, have been engaged in a subversive campaign to get www.theouthousers.com more access to The House Of Ideas.
The Outhouse, once described as “the worst!” by disgruntled Marvel editor Stephen Wacker was, just yesterday, given the top-secret, exclusive twitter account of Marvel’s PR Guru (not to be confused with The Outhouse’s GHERU) Arune Singh by the aforementioned legendary Marvel Editor Stephen Wacker!
Big Steve wasn’t alone in his efforts to bring attention to the great work of the OH. Sixth Gun, Wolverine, and Venom writer Cullen Bunn showed enough knowledge of The Outhouse’s new News Initiative to understand that they would “be focused on a comic book character's junk,” and, we imagine, went on to run through the Marvel offices screaming about how The Outhouse is the only site that truly “gets” him.
Some say that professional starf*cker Christian Hoffer went a bit too far when promising Mr. Wacker “that Hawkeye #1 and Captain Marvel #2 will both receive coverage as soon I have copies in my hands.” The implication being that if he received free copies of the books, he would give them positive reviews. This kind of shameful whoring would undermine the integrity of comic book journalism.
None of this is meant to take away from Outhouse regular, Dan Slott, and his efforts to bring the site into the mainstream by calmly and respectfully explaining things to his fellow posters, like crazed fanboy Zechs. Slott even went so far as to cook an Outhouser’s mother breakfast one morning last month.
This reporter knows that Marvel knows good things when they see it, as proven by Cullen Bunn being hired to eventually write every book Marvel produces, and I can only hope that the PTB in the PR department will see our hard work and grant us unlimited access to their big names like Stephen Wacker and Cullen Bunn (and "The Great One" Brian Michael Bendis, Jeph Loeb, Ed McGuinness, Rick Remender, and maybe some others…). Personal phone numbers would be nice.
Thank you for your time,

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
