About TheOuthousers.com

By Jude Terror in Staff on October 11, 2012

Are you tired of seeing the same press releases and fluff pieces on every comics news site on the internet? Are you interested in reading fresh, bold, and unique perspectives about all of the biggest events and issues in today's comic industry? Do you prefer a comic book website that takes an obnoxiously strong stance on all the issues, and sticks to it forever? Then you've come to the right place!   TheOuthousers.com is the world's first and only honest comic book website. We're always right. And if we're not, we sincerely apologize.  The Outhousers.com will never kowtow to the whims of the American mainstream superhero comics industrial complex, and we refuse to shill for New York or Burbank publishers under any circumstances (but please click the banner ads and check out the websites of our wonderful sponsors).   TheOuthousers.com on the issues: Variant covers? Bad. Super-mega-crossover events? Bad. Reboots? Very bad. Big Comics? Wrong no matter what they do. Unless they're sponsoring us? Seriously, please support our sponsors. Gossip-mongering? Absolutely terrible, unless we're doing it. Culture wars and identity politics? In favor of them. Creators' rights? The most independent creator is always right, as long as we like them. Prestigious comics awards? Awards are meaningless, but if anyone from a comics awards show is reading this, please nominate us. We really want it. We'll be 100% consistent on these issues at least 92.6% of the time on average, a full two points higher than anyone else in the industry. TheOuthousers.com: you have to admire our level of commitment.                      \n This email address is being protected from spambots.

Comic Book and Entertainment News is so stupid--how can anybody stomach it irony-free? Similarly, CBR was practically masturbating the Didiot the other day, and I kept waiting for CBR to turn it around into a joke. Never happened. I can't take irony free entertainment news. The major players are all such shills and phonies, artistically and intellectually bankrupt, self-serving and vapid. When Axel Alonso says in a CBR article that he's "super excited about the change in store for the X-books", he's not really "super-excited". It's like the people who are "passionate about sofas". How can a person be "super-excited" about everything? He can't be. Unless he's dropping acid, shooting stimulants, or taking coffee by I.V. I don't even read the "chat with the EIC" articles in CBR anymore. I just checkout the images to see if any are any worth downloading into my collection. Joe Quesado seemed a bit blunter. He wasn't "super-excited" about everything. I wish I could be half as excited about the few comics still on my pull list as the executives sitting somewhere at the top of the hierarchy behind that comic are. -TimH   The Outhouse has basically done for comics news what The Onion did for regular news, shown how ridiculous and formulaic and wrong it all is. -Punchy   I only go to BC and here for comics news. I used to like the TV/movie news (Comic Reel) at CBR, but other sites like Dark Horizons cover the comics/geek-centric TV/movie news as well or better. I've read other people's complaints about CBR & Newsarama writers seeming like they're constantly auditioning for DC & Marvel; those are valid complaints, imo. -Outsider   I think it's more like the Daily Show. There's facts here, but we're not afraid to poke a little fun, too. -HNutz   Yeah, I'm not interested unless there are made up quotes. -Misac   Finding The Outhousers was one of the highlights of the year, as a comic reader, for me. The Real reviews are refreshing plus I was introduced to titles I would have never known existed (like "Voice in the Dark"). Thanks and keep up the good work! -Supersoldier Washout   In an industry, hobby, medium, and pastime that is seemingly overrun with idiots, and has become increasingly joyless for me as both a reader and professional, The Outhousers team manages to keep some of the fun alive for me every day. Thank you all for the laughs in 2013 (as well as the actual news and serious social commentary hidden beneath them), and keep up the good work. -Brian Keene (Famous Writer)
