Between The Continuity – A Punishing Review, A Kick To The Heart, & A Bat-Week


Hello everyone! I have a lot to cover this week so I’m going to jump right into it.

First up, I’m happy to announce that I’ve been submitted a new guest review from none other than frequent reader and commenter wwayne. He has wanted to write one for sometime but didn’t find a suitable comic to write about until June’s release of Punisher #7. The solicitation for the comic reads: “The international best-selling author of NOT A GOOD DAY TO DIE, KEVIN MAURER joins Nathan Edmondson to tell a story of Punisher in jungle warfare! A group of American soldiers are being held prisoner by a South American drug lord, and suddenly a new prisoner arrives…Frank Castle! But not all is as it seems on EITHER side of the bars in this jail tale!” As anyone who knows wwayne, this issue was right in his wheelhouse. Look for his special review within the next day or so and if you want to read more from him make sure to check out his blog at  Be warned, if you want to partake in his brand of awesomeness and do not speak Italian you will need the aid of Google Translate. 🙂

Secondly, on the last edition of “Between The Continuity” I teased you with the phrase “Kickstart My Heart.”  I had recently received an inquiry on Twitter if I would be willing to review the first issue of a new comic that is trying to get funding on Kickstarter. I eagerly agreed and you should be seeing the first edition of a new feature I developed that will highlight an inspiring Kickstarter campaign each month once again in the next day or two. If you want to check out the campaign for yourself go to Under The Flesh’s page right HERE!

Last but not least, DC Comics has declared this Wednesday to be Batman Day. With that in mind, I’m going to make this week on the Speech Bubble Batman Week! What that means is some Bat-centric takes on a lot of my established features. Stay tuned for more as the week progresses!

looking-aheadThere’s a lot to look forward to this week as the above message outlined. Next week, the unveiling of the Speech Bubble’s Facebook page and how that will affect the Blog.

On that note, this week’s offering of Between The Continuity has reached its end. I hope everyone has an excellent week and manages to read some great stuff. Until next time, I leave you with three words that sum up this blog and life in general:
