The Outhouse: The Greatest Comic Book Website - For All Your Comics and Entertainment News, Reviews, and Other Insanity

Arion

Arion, who is either from Chile or New York (it’s not really clear) writes a blog that the Outhouse steals on a regular basis.  Arion is by far the nicest of all the staff writers and the most well behaved only having been banned from one country.  One thing we really appreciate about Aroin is that he writes his reviews in English and Spanish and we hope someday he’ll translate this blurb for us.  We’re not so good at languages, just look at how well we write in English if you need proof.  You should bookmark Arion’s blog -  http://artbyarion.blogspot.com – and actually look at it.  There will be a quiz at the end of every month.

Young Avengers # 9 - Kieron Gillen Jamie McKelvie

Tommy Taylor the Ship That Sank Twice - Mike Carey Peter Gross

Yuko ShimizuI’ve often wondered what we can accomplish as writers. Can we create ex nihilo? Or, in order to tell a story, we depend on narrative elements established centuries ago? Writers are...

Heartburst - Rick Veitch
