Outhouse Rebrands As Part of Patreon Reward Payouts

For the entire month of August, The Outhousers.com will be known as All-Nu TheOuthousers.1.NOW!!



Source: ThanosCopter Newswire

Last month, The Outhouse launched its first crowdfunding campaign, with goals ranging from paying the site's webserver costs to sending Jude Terror to Burbank to demand a face to face interview with Dan Didio or Bob Harras. For our first month, we've raised over $200, which means that we've met our first goal and have begin implementing a profit-sharing program with our writers. In addition, we have some individual backer rewards to pay off, and we're starting that off by fulfilling the wishes of Outhouse community member Ali Jafferey The Hunk, who donated $30 in exchange for the Outhouse rebranding itself as NuOuthouse.1.NOW!! for the entire month of August. THE OUTHOUSE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN until September when we go back to how things were.

To commemorate this industry-shaking announcement, The Outhouse has created a new web banner which will adorn the top of our front page and forums for the next thirty days:

Over the next week, we'll be rolling out some additional rewards, including custom forum flair for contributors and a week-long sponsorship from Nix Comics. In addition, we'd like to thank everyone for contributing, and, if you haven't contributed, you enjoy reading the site, and you've got a few extra bucks you don't mind parting with, please consider tossing it our way. We'll continue to make all of The Outhouse's content available for free no matter what, but if you want to help us grow to become even more of a thorn in the side of a complacent comic book industry, helping us stabilize our site costs and remain an independent voice in comics is a great way to do that.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a helicopter to catch.

*Jude Terror tosses several sacks filled with dollar bills into the trunk of ace reporter and decommissioned supervillain signature vehicle ThanosCopter and climbs into his cockpit, only to be interrupted by Outhouse Editor in Chief Christian Hoffer...*

Christian Hoffer: Jude! What do you think you're doing?!

Jude Terror: I'm absconding to South America with our hundreds of Patreon dollars. What does it look like?

CH: You can't do that! That money is for the website!

JT: But we've got a lot of fans down there. I'm gonna live like a king, baby!

CH: No, you're not. Give me the money, Jude.

JT: Bite me! So long, suckers!

*Jude begins to take off in ThanosCopter, but his propeller stutters and stalls as smoke billows out of the trunk. Hoffer glares at Terror.*

CH: What the hell?! Did you stuff money in the engine?!

JT: I thought that was the trunk!

CH: ThanosCopter doesn't have a trunk!

JT (grinning): Patreon stretch goal to take him to the repair shop?

*Hoffer walks off, shaking his head. He hops into his newly purchased 2014 Jaguar F-Type with custom license plate reading MBEZLR and speeds away.*

JT: Wait a minute...

About the Author - Jude Terror


Jude Terror is the Webmaster Supreme of The Outhouse and a sarcastic ace reporter dedicated to delivering irreverent comics and entertainment news to The Outhouse's dozens of loyal readers. Driven by a quest for vengeance, Jude Terror taught himself to program and joined The Outhouse. He instantly began working toward his goal of forcing the internet comics community to take itself less seriously and failing miserably.  Ironically, our webmaster, whose website skills know no end, has very little understanding of social networks or how they work.  Regardless, you can find him on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr, but would probably have the most luck just emailing him.
