EXCLUSIVE: Outhouse Solves BOOM! Teaser; Big Trouble in Little China Comic in the Making

Through extensive investigation in the name of journalism, The Outhouse has solved the mystery of BOOM! Studios' teaser from this morning.



Earlier this morning, BOOM! Studios sent out the following mysterious teaser, setting off a wave of speculation on the internet. However, despite some of the brightest minds in comics journalism trying their best, no one was able to figure out what the teaser was about... until now!

The Outhouse has spent all day investigating this teaser, putting together the clues, and solving this mystery. Now, in the tradition of famous detectives like Sherlock Holmes, Poirot, and Tim Curry in Clue, we can exclusively reveal our conclusion... and how we figured it out! Try to follow this:

The teaser references Big Trouble in Little China, a 1980s action movie directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell. Obviously, the video game character Solid Snake, who is inspired by Russell, is voiced by Keifer Sutherland in the new Metal Gear Solid game, and its no surprise that Keifer Sutherland starred in the hit TV show 24 as Jack Bauer. Any fool can make the connection that Once Upon a Time actress Lana Parrilla was on 24 for a season, and Once Upon a Time is a ripoff of Fables, an Eisner Award winning comic book from Bill Willingham. The Eisner Awards are given out in San Diego, which has a football team called the Chargers. As everyone knows, chargers are used for phones, and Samsung just announced their new phone, the Samsung Galaxy 5. Of course, Star Wars takes place in a galaxy far, far away, which is a song by Wilco, and Wilco is sometimes known as the American Radiohead. We all know Radiohead is from Britain, just like Alan Moore, who wrote Watchmen, and the Watchmen movie features a song by Leonard Cohen. Cohen is a Jew, and Jews run Hollywood. Hollywood is in LA, which also has a Chinatown, and that's where the movie Big Trouble in Little China was set.

HOLY SHIT! BOOM! IS PUTTING OUT A BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA COMIC!

Remember, you heard it here first on The Outhouse. There's no way any other sites figured all that out as quickly as we did. We'll take our own Eisner for journalism now, please.

Now let's figure out who's on the creative team. The teaser has Eric Powell's signature on it. Eric Powell created The Goon, which is a comic book from Dark Horse which is...
