Comic Bricks

Hi all,
First up, I just wanted to apologize for my six month hiatus. I've been blogging about LEGO for nine years now, and from time to time I've just gotten a bit run down and distracted from my family of blogs. However, in the meantime, I'm constantly going through Flickr, Brickshelf, and other sites, and probably every day I bookmark a few more things that I keep meaning to post. I've gotten a couple of nice notes asking where I've been, and I guess it's time to come back. Also, during the year I save up LEGO books to review as people are getting ready for Christmas, and want to get those posted. And so, back to blogging. Hopefully I won't have too many interruptions in the near future. I've certainly got a backlog of great creations to feature.

One great development in recent months is the Comic Bricks (great name, note the extra space) project inspired by Tommy Williamson of BrickNerd. He inspired a display at DesignerCon 2014 and an ongoing Flickr group to feature LEGO versions of comic book covers. I'll definitely look at individual creations in the coming weeks, but here's a group shot from DesignerCon. Presumably this will be a growing display that will show up at future AFOL and geek events.
