In 1995, we were introduced to Shirak The Devourer, a shark-like entity from another reality. The Honor Guard prevented his entry into our reality in 1959, and then again in 1964. The public was made aware of his existence in 1995, thanks to the efforts of Astro City scribe Kurt Busiek.
And in 2013, a shark was once again found, mysteriously, in a subway, this time in New York City. Well, we're not fooled. This isn't certain other sites, to blindly kiss tushies in hopes of interviews and exclusives. No, this is the Outhouse, and we're ready to ask the hard questions.
That's why, on behalf of the Outhouse, this reporter has reached out to Kurt Busiek for comment on this story. Specifically, we want to know WHY Kurt Busiek is working for Shirak The Devourer, why he chose New York as the invasion site, and how long Mr. Busiek has been plotting the downfall of mankind.
The Outhouse will keep you updated on this story as it develops. Unless Mr. Busiek has me killed in my sleep by Night-Sharks. If that occurs, then Shirak is here, in which case may Kong have mercy on us all, for the Shark has none.
