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?

Design Updates
posted by Monthly Retconn

Wow, in one month a lot has happened and has been added to this blog. We thank hundreds of our readers for visiting our blog. We wish to improve it more and hope you visit it as often as you like. And we also hope you post some comments.

Anyway, we've added a new color to the site (yes, I know it was too blue... kinda hurts the eyes etc.) and have a monthly poll and a chatboard below. But, what I'm most proud of is the current release of.... OUR MONTHLY COMIC STRIP! (I'm noticing everything is getting the monthly treatment... -jepster)

Yup, Jepster and Jabs, our contributors have now given us their talents in writing and drawing for a decent (We hope...)cause! Jepster thought of the idea and Jabs totally digged the idea. Jabs was even generous to draw it as soon as possible even if he was told to release it during the middle of the month! But his love for you fans made him want to do it as best he can and as soon as possible! Let's give Jabs a hand!

Enjoy everyone! Don't forget to leave a message on our tag-board!
CHOW!
