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?

Hi Everyone!

Retconner is here. You guys like the new design? Well, It's about time this blogsite got some graphics into it so here they are. It's now more attractive than ever! Special thanks goes to Thur Broeders for his wonderful templates. You can see his blog at http://thrbrtemplates.blogspot.com/ . Thanks dude!

As you can see, we have some new articles posted by our friendly contributors, Jepster and Jabs. This is just the beginning as next time, we will have more and more and MORE articles in the upcoming weeks.

As for the news about Spider-man's Unmasking, sad to say, the information we asked for is not yet available since our copy of Amazing Spider-man has long been delayed to be delivered to us. Don't worry! Once we get it, we'll review it, then either burn it if it sucks or place it in an altar if it gives us a great glimpse of what's to come for our favorite webhead superhero.

That's all for now folks! Don't forget to leave comments! And if there are any requests, questions, or hate mail, you can email us thru monthlyretconnmail@gmail.com!


TRIVIA: Did you know that the word "Jabs" is Irish Slang for the female mammary gland?
And did you know that Jepster dislikes squid so much he calls it rubberband!
