The Art Of The Brick exhibition is a must for all Lego fans. While it’s amazing to see just one Lego sculpture at a shopping mall, this was taken to another level having room after room with DC heroes and villains brought to life with small coloured bricks. It’s all the more jaw dropping when everything on display was all done by one person. Lego artist Nathan Sawaya has worked away for hours put this collection together.
Star Wars (Vol 2) Issue #1 was such a success at the start of the year, that it went to a forth printing, but artist John Cassaday has already announced he will be leaving the series. Cassaday announced that he would be leaving after the first story arc on Facebook, but also showed of some of the art comes together with snaps of the first cover, as a treat for fans. You can check it out here.

I’ve been a fan of Star Wars for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure if I saw A New Hope or The Phantom Menace first, but if it was TPM first, ANH wouldn’t of been far after. I would of been five around that time, and my parents started buying me the toys for the first prequel film, to go along with my Dad’s original trilogy toys from Kenner (you know the ones with a lightsaber coming out of Luke and Darth’s hand).
What followed was buying even more of the toys by the time Attack of the Clones rolled around, and also getting more merch like books and video games. I remember AOTC was one of the first big action blockbuster films I saw at the cinemas, and walking into Revenge of the Sith, I thought it would be the last time seeing a Star Wars film, for the first time.
