I usually write the entries for Gone&Forgotten a month or more in advance. Unfortunately -- or, actually, really fortunately -- I've been tied up with a couple of huge projects which kept me away from the site. So, what this means is -- hiatus! For a couple months, at least!
Think of all the free time you just got back! Why, you could grow a beard, or learn to knit a macrame hammock, or get that ol' elusive GED your mom always told you you'd need if you wanted to advance past "flipping burgers at forty-eight years of age, for God's sake, Rodney" -- the possibilities are endless.
I'll return to the blog no later than the end of the year, and will pick back up on all the Micronauts, Swamp Thing and Truly Forgotten fun, plu-u-u-us a couple of new features which I hope you'll enjoy.
In the meantime: Since the site came back in 2013, I've been maintaining anywhere from three to seven articles a week. This means you've got literally hundreds of back articles to keep you occupied. But if that's not enough, you can also check out:
- The Chronological Superman: Cataloguing the Man of Steel through every form of media in which he ever appeared, on a year-by-year basis (also presently on hiatus, but there are more than 110+ pages of entries)
- Gone and Forgotten on Tumblr: New out-of-context panels from weird old comics, every day!
And if you'd like to support the site:
- You could always pick up a copy of my first two books, covering the weirdest and wildest superheroes and super villains in the history of comics: The League of Regrettable Superheroes and The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains!
- You can always subscribe to my Patreon for $1 a month. Patron subscribers get an exclusive digital sketchbook at the beginning of the month, which folks seem to like, I dunno.
And if you find yourself missing my constant droning on about inanities, you can always just follow my Twitter or Instagram.
Thanks for being part of the blog, and I'll see y'all in a few months! I'm sure the comics and tv shows will still be largely awful by then.
-Your humble editor, Jon
