So, if you were unaware, the very talented Reid Vanier joined the ranks of the Speech Bubble this week, a team which currently includes wwayne and Sam from SuperTeamAU. wwayne already had his first Retroactive post see release which has proven extremely popular so far and Reid’s weekly DC Review feature entitled the Vanier Report has also brought great numbers in just under two short days. Reviews were always something this site has been lacking and it makes me so happy that Reid stepped up to the plate to fill that gap. His aim is to review his Top Pick from his pull-list every week, a pull-list which consists entirely of DC. If anyone reading this wants to shine a little spotlight on some Marvel or Independent titles once per week, the offer is still open for more individuals to apply. Just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In other news, January so far has already eclipsed 2014’s total views and is aiming to overtake 2013’s as well. January has also seen the resurrection of two old features in the form of The Comic Connection and Creatively Speaking. The Comic Connection will be seeing a release twice a month, alternating with wwayne’s Retroactive postings to make a stable Monday. Creatively Speaking, on the other hand, is going to come out once per month, at least that is my goal. As previously mentioned, Sam is resurrecting #Trending which leaves just a few old features left to be brought back to life. Which one will return next? I’m also mulling over some potential never-before-seen features on the Speech Bubble…
Last but not least, my attention is going to be turning to some catch-up. I’m behind in four areas: responding to comments left on the Speech Bubble, getting Retroactive back on a timely schedule, Covers of the Week/Month, and my comic reading which ties into my Rankings. My goals this week are: 1) to respond to all the comments left so far. 2) publish a new edition of Retroactive for Teen Titans/Ultimate Spider-Man, Nightwing/Fantastic Four, and TMNT/Hellboy. 3) Get my Rankings completed to November. I’m crossing my fingers that I can get it all done!

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:
