Easter Eggs

  • The easter eggs are already linked in the sidebar. Do we need them in the body of the article as well?--Hardvice (talk) 14:33, 12 December 2006 (EST)
    • I think we went through this before in the past and determined links in the sidebar were sufficient. Plus since NBC has them on their site I think we should just link to theirs (like we currently do in the sidebar). Not because of bandwidth, but because it makes it less likely that there will be a copyright issue. (Admin 14:45, 12 December 2006 (EST))

No evolved humans

"Monsters is the first graphic novel in which no character is an evolved human." ~ Seeing as there were no graphic novels before this one, isn't this information kind of unnecessary? Ditto "Monsters marks Mr. Bennet's first appearance in a graphic novel." Branfish 11:36, 19 January 2007 (EST)

  • I was kind of wondering the same thing.--Hardvice (talk) 12:09, 19 January 2007 (EST)
  • Good point. I think what I was going for was that this is the only GN without an evolved human, and I was allowing for the possibility of similar GNs in the future - I'll change the wording now. As for the Bennet reference, since he's the character that appears most in the GNs, I think this mention serves as a running count. I think it's fine, but if someone else would like to reword it, I'm not opposed. - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:02, 19 January 2007 (EST)
    • The Heroism Is Found in the Heart series does not feature any evolved humans, so I'll update the note. However, I have a feeling we'll learn of Kaito's power soon enough, rendering the update unnecessary. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 03:31, 6 October 2007 (EDT)

First page characters

  • How come the characters seen on the front page of this novel (Niki, Claire...etc) are not counted as appearing, yet for the similar novel, 'The Natural Order of Things' the characters on the front page (Tracy, Matt) are counted. Im confused! TracyStraussFan 10:53, 15 August 2009 (EDT)

Second novel with no evolved humans

Monsters is definitely the first novel with no evolved humans. That's good trivia. But I took out the link to Heroism Is Found in the Heart for a few reasons. First, we just don't need the link here since this trivia is about Monsters, and not a future graphic novel. Second, Kaito appears in HiFitH. He's not a confirmed evolved human, but he has talked a lot about being "powerful" and that Hiro inherited his abilities, etc. That, coupled with the fact that he demonstrated an ability in a deleted scene, I just think it's best not to open a can of worms. I know there are a million arguments to say why Kaito does not have a power (and a million more to support the idea that he does), but that's exactly my point. It's just best not to bring attention to a somewhat controversial and unconfirmed idea, especially when the link to the second novel ultimately isn't needed on this page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:03, 19 October 2009 (EDT)

  • Then, “first and only”? —Frungi 15:37, 19 October 2009 (EDT)

Broken Links

A lot of links are broken but can be recovered using wayback machine, eg.

  • Ah, yes, that's a great idea. I checked out a few of the old graphic novel links a few weeks ago and was disappointed (though not necessarily surprised) that they didn't work. (Admin (talk) 06:45, 6 May 2015 (EDT))
    • I downloaded all the issues a long time ago, it is possible to upload them here if you allow "PDF" files and increase the file size up to 20 MB. ;-) --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 08:04, 6 May 2015 (EDT)
      • That would be awesome! If the admin either can't or doesn't want to enable PDF files on the wiki, I think it would be pretty harmless to just upload them to another site and then link to them from the graphic novel articles here. -Kon (talk) 05:51, 5 June 2015 (EDT)
  • I added "|archive=" to Template:GN, just put in the Internet Archive Wayback Machine number. I think they have all the PDFs and most of the images, they do not have the interactive or videos. I would suggest using a plugin like "Resurrect Pages" to help find the number. -Lөvөl 19:38, 1 August 2015 (EDT)
