Last week, the Major Spoilers crew received a really great e-mail from faithful Spoiler-ite, Gaumer.Â We decided instead of reviewing a trade paperback this week, we’d spend some time talking about continuity in comics.
With the discussion regarding the Batman R.I.P. series it came to my
attention that although this story was good it was changed to fit into
Is continuity really that important? Isnt it OK to tell stories that
are just good stories and not tell them with everything else in the
universe hinging on that story?
Wouldn’t RIP have been just as good of a story if it was just told?
I think that if publishers want to continue to have great stories they
are going to have to let continuity go and just start telling good
stories with great characters.
