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?

THE BATMAN SEASON 4
posted by Bahoot Studios

I don't really know if this is legal or not, but another leaked video from the Comic Con found its way to the internet. This time it's the preview of THE BATMAN series SEASON 4. It featured the new Robin (and yes its Dick Grayson) which, so far seems to have a more detailed origin story for the Boy Wonder as compared to the Bruce Timm/Paul Dini Animated Series. They also showed several new villains to be introduced in the series namely Harely Quinn, Black Mask, Killer Moth, Clayface 2 and Everywhere Man voiced by Brandon Routh!

Yes, Brandon Routh...the guy who played Superman is now doing voice acting gigs. I know then Supes movie didn't do that great in the US box office but good God, voice acting? Well I would give him the benefit of the doubt that he might have taken this project before the Superman thing came. Still it puts an interesting twist on his short career dosen't it?


Anyway, back to the leaked video, it also showed a brief glipmse of Gotham's Future more specifically 2027. I don't really know how this would fit in the show but it looked amazing. They had a crippled Barbara Gordon much like in the current comics continuuity, Dick Grayson in the Nightwing costume and Batman with a very distinct Dark Knight Returns Frank Miller look.


The video was enough make any fanboy wet his pants. Click the link with caution.

Cool designs expect for the Penguin. I liked more the current design they are using in the show.

Hopefully SEASON 4 would really start to get me into this series. The previous seasons were not much to my liking except for some random episodes namely with Commissoner Gordon and Batgirl

The series is a hit and miss. My only complaint about the series is the major hyper activity of the joker. The Catwoman here is hotter than BTAS. I like this series, but nothing beats BTAS. Mark Hamill is the no.1 Joker voice ever...

 

Blogger Chip Chief said ... (3:50 PM) : 

joker in this sereis is pretty mediocre (sometimes he is ok, but sometimes he is terrible like in that one where he gets banes venom) and the penguin is dreadful. for some reason these two are way overused as well. on the other hand, The Batman has been successful at making dudes like firefly, ragdoll, spellbinder, and maxie zeus fairly cool. season 2 was the strongest, i hope that season 4 isnt too crowded, and lets batman have some episodes to himself.
