    Fanfics follow canon, or don't... or twist and turn canon but they are not TV-canon.

    They're all in the same stargate universe, each with their own canon.

    I will ignore the comics and books as canon. They are official fanfic to me.
    Oh, no, they aren't canon if they're fanfics. But even if you're following a little bit of canon, you're still following some.

    Canon can easily be broken down. cut into bits, one peices separated from the rest (you have to be careful), etc.

    It's just not one thing that's be-all-or-end-all. And it's debatable, too.

    Canon is fun that way (but dangoerus to argue).
    Price for Pain What do you mean violence isn't the answer?

    Burn It All Away Blood moves the heavens. Fire purifies the land. Legends change worlds. Destiny burns.

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Fiat justitia et pereat mundus. Fiat justitia ruat caelum.



    All are PG-13, each with a single act of rated R violence. Adults situations and other, tamer violence.

    Well, the movie creators probably look at the TV series as non-canon as well. They created Stargate, not Brad Wright and company. MGM gave them the option to make the TV show just like they did with the book and comic creators.

    Now don’t get me wrong, I’m glad they did. Brad and his crew made Stargate my favorite sci-fi franchise of all time.

    Canon is always a touchy subject though. At least discussions on it are civil of Gateworld!

    They absolutely do so, hence why I mention it as a separate canon-verse.

    So that makes everything that came after fan-fiction, right?

    Regardless, no need to argue about canon, we all love Stargate and that's all that matters!

    "Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment."

    "Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all."

    From my point of view, and in my opinion, yes.

    Was very reluctant, but I renewed my SG:C subscription today to be able to read those. Only read the first SGA comic, but I must say it's pretty good so far. The Artwork is really good, characters are very life-like.

    And that's coming from a guy that doesn't read comics.

    Great, now I have to find you in my account-list and adjust your all-access to yes, instead of no.

    You could also support American Mythology, you know, and buy a copy -- digital or hardcover.

    Hmm.. what? You are involved in the production of these comics? Didn't know that, that's awesome. Give me links and I'll look if I'm interested.

    Account name on SG:C is '' Chaka-Zo'' with an o, not a zero.

    FYI: They did not release all the comics, there's only the first 3 of SGA + SGU available. ''First wave'' my a**, should've known SG:C likes to hand-feed its customers

    Ah no... not involved with them. Not even close.
    If I were though, that would be cool.

    But I'm always happy to spread the word. Return the favor to the creators with whom I recently had a very nice twitter exchange. They are good people. Much nicer than the selectively-deaf-and-ignore-the-fans-nothing-remotely-good Command people.

    They have a license agreement with MGM, which basically means that MGM can do with those comics as they please.

    They can also revoke the license, or decide not to continue it. Discontinuing can also be done by AM obviously.

    Considering the amount of royalties MGM asks on top of that license, it would be miracle at best if AM would continue creating these if MGM just continues to put them online for "free" reading. Because you can bet on it, that premium members are less inclined to actually buy the comics when they can read them for a yearly fee of 20 dollars.

    The comic-collection SGU ep 1 to 6 in one copy costs the same amount.
    No way, AM will make more money from this. On the contrary, it will be less this way.

    Totally agree. Been better if they published the older Avatar and Dynamite comics online then promoted buying the new trades from American Mythology.
