Hey all!

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:

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

Nooo! We didn't even get to see the first appearance of Huntarr in Micronauts!

We'll get there, heaven help us.

(Tongue is firmly in cheek. Be well, good luck on the projects, take some time off, and the Internet will be here when you get back. Probably. If not, send up a smoke signal and we'll come to your crater and you can sketch comics panels from memory with chalk on the broken slabs of a former office building and you can keep the tell of the before-time for us survived the 'poclypse and all the little ones not been born.)

K. We'll all just hang out here until you get back.

Which one of these is the teevee remote?

Calamity Jon said...

The shoes.

neofishboy said...

Ha ha funny guy. Okay, found it.

Gah! What, is this thing still in Demo Mode? And why is the picture all squished? Jeez, you're worse than my Dad.

Anyway, congrats on the big, lucrative gigs that will be keeping you away from the site (if that's the kind of thing you were alluding to). Lucre is awesome. :)

FINE. I'll just have to re-read the books to tide me over in the meantime. Good luck!

Good luck with your projects man. Godspeed.

Happy Holidays, Jon. Best for 2018.
