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?

HELLO EVERYONE! WELCOME TO THE FIRST ISSUE OF MONTHLY RETCONN! STAY TUNED! WEEKLY!

Love em or hate em, comic books are a great deal of entertainment. They are also one of the most used mediums as source materials in movies today, in fact they are the best selling ones too. So, tune in to this blog every week if you're a comic book fan. And maybe every Friday for a peek in the life of a comic book geek. Since, Friday is well, comic book day for me. Especially the end of the month, since I get my monthly books at that time. Stay tuned! Anyway the news so far in the comic book world is as follows:

Headline:
