On Continuity, Statements, Revisions and Retcons

I made it perfectly clear, back in the days when things updated, that there were several universes dealing with the ‘superheroic,’ if such is a word we would want to use.

In particular, the Mythic hero, from long ago, in times of mystery men.

And the wings of Justice, or tales of now.

And I have no doubt but that when I said these things they were the truth.

But much has happened. To me. To them.

Maybe there was a crisis. A calamity. A disaster most foul.

Or maybe there was a hop between universes and worlds.

Or maybe we didn’t know the truth before, but we do now.

Maybe.

All I do know is this.

Mythic
Emergent
Halcyon
Cataclysmic
Nadiral

Justice Wing.

Linearity is for suckers.

On the question of relaunch/update/et cetera

Since last I complained reported, we’ve had a few more knocks. More doctoring, more weirdness. I may have gallstones or sludge (my favorite diagnosis ever. I have sludge!).

Oh, and I have a hernia. That’s okay, though. My intestines just wanted to poke their head out, have a look around. Who can blame them?

Despite this, and a setback in terms of my strategy, the relaunch proceeds apace. For the record, the relaunch will include Lovelace 1/2, Interviewing Trey and Corbett-877. So yes, there will be more.

And they will be free to read, right on Banter Latte. I won’t force you to pay for the rest of the story you’ve already started. That’s what we in the industry would call a ‘dick move.’

How much more?

That will still depend on you. I’ll put together a post soon, explaining how the new site will work.

There will be a bunch of other stuff. Reprints and rebroadcasts. And consolidations — but organized so folks won’t need to get caught up in the whole if they just want parts.

And there will also be serials — some all new stuff (well, some of it will seem pretty familiar, but still). That will be paid, but I hope folks will think it’s worth it.

really hope that, actually. My costs are going up in all of this. A few people donated money to me (and that has been amazingly cool and helpful), but what I really want are things that people can get that will give me the happy monies.

Still, Andi, Lee and Chapman will all be back. That’s perhaps the most important takeaway.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go apply heat to my gut, so I can gently encourage my insides to go back inside.

In his barcolounger at dusk, dormant Snarky waits dreaming…

Five tweets of interest to those waiting patiently for Banter Latte’s return….

An Update, or “no, they’re not roofing materials”

So. What’s happened since last we talked?

Well….

I swear I’m not making this up.

I got shingles.

swore I wasn’t making this up! Jeez. More after the break.
