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?

Batman Begins sequel title confirmed
posted by jepster2006

Batman-on-film.com has confirmed from Warner Bros. the title of the sequel to 2005's Batman Begins. And the title will be... (DRUM ROLL PLEASE!)

THE DARK KNIGHT

Yup, it's that simple folks. But it's quite an effective title and maybe you're asking, "so, it's called... Batman:The Dark Knight"? Nope kids. It will be just Dark Knight. It's not like the first run of the franchise where there's always a BATMAN.

Well, that's not all folks. Warner Bros. has chosen the actor for the Dark Knight's greatest nemesis. You really want to know who it is? Mouse over the image below to see who it is...






Don't recognize him? He's Heath Ledger, highly acclaimed actor of Brokeback Mountain.And no, this is no Rumor, this is confirmed by Warner Bros. and it's for good. But Christopher Nolan promises this joker to be darker than Jack Nicholson's quite campy portrayal of the character. Also, another villain is in the roster for the sequel. And it's no other than penguin. Now who would play Penguin? There's no confirmation yet, but they seem to be grooming Philip Seymour Hoffman for the job. Well, for me, that would one of the best casting ever.

Now, won't there be a catwoman? Please?

i wonder how much like a clown the joker will really look. i hope he just looks like he got his butt kicked by an acid bath, rather than looking like an actual clown. i cant wait for the first look.

If you've read the killing joke, that would the best and darkest treatment you can give for the joker.

The acid bath really makes him look like a clown, and I doubt they'll make him look TOO scary. He might look like the Creeper that way. But I wish they'd never make him wear a purple suit. As cool as it looks on comics, on screen, it just looks campy... Black is good, maybe red, dark red.

This is getting long... Sorry, I'm a big fan of joker. :)

Awesome photoshop skills :)

Why thank you Ed, hey, both you and Joker are green! :) Juz kidding!

Alan Moore didn't like Killing Joke. He was even in the verge of calling it a LAME story...bwhaha..

Personally I like the Killing Joke but I would rather have Paul Dini's rendition of the Joker in the Batman Animated Series.

 

Blogger Edkaye said ... (11:50 AM) : 

I had read that about Alan Moore too, but bad Alan Moore is still pretty damn good. I agree with giving him a dark look. Often, what looks good in a comic book looks terrible on the big screen, look at Two-Face, Riddler, Catwoman... the list goes on, however, the Penguin didn't look too bad in Batman 2.

 

Blogger Chip Chief said ... (7:55 PM) : 

i think catwoman was the best looking costume of all the first 4 batman films! but to each his own i guess. you are right about the jim carrey riddler, that spandex outfit was terrible. and the two-face mask was just as bad.
