Four Page Preview Of King In Black #1 by Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman
Comic book continuity is a comic publisher's attempt to link various stories told by the publisher together Some people love comic book continuity; some do not Why do comic book publishers use continuity?

Since When do People from Queens Call Soda "Pop?" Today's Black Cat #9
Marvel Comics' editors aren't exactly known for their attention to detail when it comes to making sure everything that happens in their comics fits in with continuity, or even reality That kind of fact-checking and proofreading is time-consuming work, and there are so many hours in the day, and those tweets aren't going to tweet[...]
Jim Shooter
He wrote Too many continued stories, too many run-on stories, too much pathological continuity, too much confusion Come on, guys One-Part stories! Please! Clarity! Understandability!
