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?

FIRST LOOK
posted by Bahoot Studios

For those people who were too cheap to buy the Ultimate Avengers 2 DVD, well, you could just thank Youtube.com for providing you access to the FIRST LOOK features of the DVD which contains video previews of ULTIMATE IRONMAN and Doctor Strange

ULTIMATE IRONMAN hopes to make a more definitive IRONMAN origin story which I do believe has been done in the ULTIMATE IRONMAN mini-series but it would seem most of the people involved in this animation project doesn't recognize it. I don't want to be the guy who puts down the film before it's released but since I didn't like both Ultimate Avengers 1 and 2 films, I feel less than impressed with this feature.

Doctor Strangeon the other hand is a character that I never really had interest in. I bascially know his origin story from the old school MARVEL trading cards and obscure MARVEL PRESENTS issues that I had years back but other than that I got no idea what's his story so far. The FIRST LOOK video to its credit made Doc Strange look interesting enough but again the stigma of having the same production people who handled ULTIMATE AVENGERS doing this made me think twice.

Bottom line is, I would like to see these direct to DVD projects but i'm not really keeping my hopes up since the disappointing ULTIMATE AVENGERS.

no love for ultiate avengers huh? i liked them, but it seems they could have been better. hopefully the DC DTVs will be more satisfying.

Well, if they sticked with the ULTIMATES storyline of Mark Millar it would have been ALOT better. Still since it was after all not targeted strictly for adults, the ULTIMATE AVENGERS was a decent enough story.

Personally I liked all the DC animated shows since the Timm/Dini run expect of course for the Brainiac Attack...hehehe
