Mission

Monthly Retconn mainly aims to involve people outside of the comic book community and inform them of the best things, comic books have to offer. We are dedicated to also serve the rest of the comic book community with the most reliable information possible. We aim to give truly unbiased views on what’s going on in the industry today. We aim to give the people more of what they need than just of what they want. Monthly Retconn believes that the comic book community can grow to its fullest potential by providing the people with what they truly need.

Vision

Monthly Retconn sees itself to be one of biggest news provider in terms of comic book related information ranging from Films to Graphic Novels. Monthly Retconn envisions the comic book community to become one of the largest group of intellectual individuals. Most of all, we believe that comic books are one of the greatest social pieces of fiction around. LONG LIVE COMIC BOOKS!

What is a Retcon?

Retcon means Retroactive Continuity.

A retcon is the alteration of facts or history stated in a piece of fiction. It can either be additional information or even an extreme change of information. Retcons commonly happen in comic books due the long history of characters especially those of mainstream brands. Retcons also happen on fictional materials that are episodic in nature, like Television shows, film sequels, video games, and even novels that are part of a series. In the case of comic books, issues are what we call the episodes.

Why Retcon? And… what’s with the Double N?

Well, retcons happen very frequently lately especially now that some comic brands rewrote the history of their universe after a major crossover event. Take for example DC, who solved most of their continuity issues with their latest effort called, Infinite Crisis. Also, most people don’t really know what’s going on with comic books right now, so everything they thought they knew about their favorite comic book character is now a retcon. Retcons can be good or bad but it really depends on the reader. We at Monthly Retconn neither support or dislike retcons. We just think that they are some things we can look back to and talk about it. The other N? oh, that’s just for kicks. You got a problem with that?

ASTONISHING X-MEN REVIEW
posted by Bahoot Studios

ASTONISHING X-MEN REVIEW

Cyclops always the rock solid leader, Wolverine the bad boy, Beast is the brain, Colossus the loyal soldier with a heart, Kitty the guiding light and Emma Frost the bitch.



Joss Whedon, John Cassaday and his team in Astonishing X-men are doing a great job. This book so far has all the fans boys want along with the nostalgic feel of Chris Claremont’s early years. Whedon had weaved stories with such familiarity to these characters that it could easily make you smile knowing that they are finally back.

Despite this book standing alone with no interference to the earth shattering events of both House of M and Civil War it is safe to say that its better that way since it involves a story that need not be dumb down with any cross over event. This book can stand on its one and can still shine above the competition, from Ord of the Breakworld to the sadistic Danger and currently the new formed Hellfire club, Whedon’s stories tells the fans to always expect the unexpected.


In its latest issue, White Queen aka Emma Frost had shown her true colors. Yes the bitch is back and bitchier than ever. She turned Cyclops into a comatose, dried eyed stiff and led the entire team into a trap set by the New Hellfire club. This current story line “TORN” hopes to tie all the loose ends of the entire Whedon run which I think would pave way to a nice and clean exit to the current creative team and a fresh start to the new one unless they were doped again by Joe Q to signing for another year.

Emma Frost is one sexy biatch, and actually, the main reason Jabs like Astonishing X-men.

Did you know that Jabs never reads an X-book without Emma Frost?
