#ArkhamAsylum in #Lego WOW!

There are custom Lego builds... and then there are CUSTOM LEGO BUILDS. Xenomurphy is a Lego builder who has just completed one of the second ones, a Lego build that is about as epic as it could be. He has spent the last year completing a huge Lego build of the Elizabeth Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane of Batman fame, complete with a courtyard and interiors that bring the building from the Batman mythos to life!

#CanadianComic Resurgence

 Canada is seeing a resurgence of superheroes both old and new. With the help of Kickstarter, comic books like True Patriot, which is a anthology of new Canadian superheroes, and Nelvana, from 1940 comic books, are coming back to life. Kickstarter is website where people put their projects like films or inventions and ask people to help fund their idea. It is interesting to see people pay to help create new ideas or pay to bring back parts of Canadian culture. For another Canadian superhero regaining popularity. watch the Captain Canuck web series.

The #CanadianComics Golden Age

The Canadian Golden Age of Comics, as it is now known, came about thanks to government intervention. In December 1940, the feds, responding to a trade deficit with the U.S., introduced the War Exchange Conservation Act, restricting imports of non-essential goods, including fiction magazines and comics, which had become ubiquitous after the 1938 introduction of Superman, drawn by Toronto-born Joe Shuster, and Batman the following year. 
 hello Canada Jack, Commander Steel, Johnny Canuck and Nelvana of the Northern Lights! These characters thrived for a few years, but after the war ended, the borders reopened to the likes of DC and Timely, as Marvel was then known. This and the waning popularity of superheroes led to our national defenders hanging up their costumes, largely to be relegated to the dustbin of history.
