With Christmas just days away I temporarily take a break to honor an amazing moment for this blog: this edition of Between The Continuity marks the 900th feature on the Speech Bubble! I still can’t believe that I’ve reached that milestone pretty much by myself save for a few select fantastic guest posts. To think that in about three months I’ll be hitting 1000 is even more unbelievable. Looking back where I was 900 features ago and comparing it to where I am now both in relation to this blog and personally is quite astounding. With the blog I’d like to think that I have grown and it is a really great outlet for me. Personally I think it is the opposite. This week was particularly depressing at work but essentially acted as the kick in the pants I needed to seriously think about my future, more of which will be explored in my giant January 1st 2015 edition of Between The Continuity which will include my New Year’s resolution and the next phase of the Speech Bubble as well. Let’s just say that things are going to change.
Next week will also see the regular Retroactives take a backseat for some very special update editions. I’m going to showcase all the 2014 covers for those titles I have previously covered in Retroactive. What this means is a new edition of Detective Comics/Amazing Spider-Man, Green Arrow/Punisher, and Legends of the Dark Knight/Daredevil.
Otherwise, I hope everyone has all their Christmas shopping taken care of. I’m happy to announce I completed all my remaining purchases on Sunday. It truly amazed me that about 80% of all my gifts actually came from online shopping this year, something I’ve noticed has increased from year to year. For those that haven’t finished their shopping, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Good luck!

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:
