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?

Renaissance Trailer: AWESOME
posted by jepster2006

Renaissance Trailer
Watch the Trailer Here

You think Sin City is the living comic book movie? Well, guess what, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Critically acclaimed among film festivals, Renaissance might as well be every comic art fans dream come true. It’s animated noir at it’s finest.

Renaissance takes place in Paris, year 2054. The militia type of government is owned a corporation called Avalon. A police detective is hired to do the job of finding a scientist who may have the key to mankind’s greatest future. Of course, the detective doesn’t know crap about what’s going on, but it seems it’s pretty important to jump on the bridge for.

Renaissance may at first look like rotoscoped animation but it’s not. Nope, this is no Scanner Darkly. This film is fully CG rendered in maximum contrasts of black and white. The special thing about Renaissance is that all movements were captured via motion-capture technology. Although this may be old news, the execution is perfect. Clean cut animation at it’s finest, this may as well be the art film of the year, or better yet, the animated film of the year. I hope.
