as usual, text RUViews are below
Blackest Night #8 – I really wish that I could love this comic, but I just can’t. After 8 issues of twists, swerves, and a story that went on, seemingly, forever this was not a satisfactory ending. First, the awesome idea of Sinestro as the White Lantern ended was to fast (much like Kyle’s ‘death’ and many other aspects of this story) and second the major battle last maybe three pages and is won by Deadman showing up out of no where. But the major issue is the resurrections, besides one character I do not care at all about this Silver Age love fest, and I do not believe that many fans were clamoring for the return of Osiris. I have a feeling that my time with the Green Lantern books are coming an end.
Cloak And Dagger #1 – I really liked this one-shot but it does make me wonder what purpose they served from Dark X-Men till now just to reestablish an older status-quo?
Prelude To Deadpool Corps #5 – Fun as all get out and I can’t wait for Deadpool corps.
She-Hulk Sensational #1 – this was one of the few anniversary issues that succeeded in all of its goals, good original stories and the reprint made me want to look into old She-Hulk collections.
X-Force #25 - I find it interesting that both Necrosha and Blackest Night ended this week, although no where near perfect, I must say that Necrosha entertained me much more than Blackest Night.
X-Men Forever #20 – last page = holy fuck! You ever wonder where the technology for the Sentinels came from; well this issue answers that for you.
X-Men Second Coming – good opening issue. I am very interested in seeing where this goes with Not Jean Grey and how the other X-Men feel when they discover all that X-Force has been up to.
Incorruptible #4 – I do not know why I keep giving this and Irredeemable chances, maybe a third of the issues have been great but I still cannot see how either of these series have sustainability.
ASK RU #1 – From You Tube member Q27 “Q for_ RU, if you wrote for the big 2 companies who would be your pet characters? Characters you enjoy writing and attempt to put in a lot of the stories you would right. Examples are Bendis with Spiderwoman and Geoff Johns with the entire silver age”
A – At first I thought that my answer to this fro Marvel was easy – Adam X, and I still believe that if some one could follow up on what Fabian and PAD did with him he could still be great, but the more I thought about it, the more I focused on a different character that Fabian breathed new life into, Baron Zemo. If I could follow up on the developments of Born Better and continue his growth as maybe not a hero, but as a character I think he could be brilliant. As to DC, if some how I could bring wither Major Bummer or the kid from Hard Time into DC proper I would in a heartbeat. Oh….no – Hitman! Considering his relationship with Blood / Estrigan it is not difficult to imagine a fun and great resurrection story.
ASK RU #2 – from username ThatGuy42 – “RU, you always seem to be hyping theouthousers.com, but I already belong to a comic book message board filled with haters who seemingly do their best to suck all the fun and enjoyment out of everything they pretend to like, what makes the outhouse different?”
A – well, at the outhouse you can cuss, so there is that.

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).
